It’s not secret I love Iceland, without having been there yet. If Christian agrees we might fly there next year, for our honeymoon
Anyway, one of the best Icelandic products is music: Björk and Gus Gus to mention some. But my favorite Icelandic band is definitively Sigur Rós.
Hoppípolla is probably their most famous song and can be listened at the end of the trailer for Slumdog Millionaire. I’m not sure whether it’s part of the soundtrack as well since the movie has been released here in Germany just yesterday and I didn’t watch it yet.
Because of my friendship with Danny Boyle I might give this movie a try… No joking, I met him two years ago when he released Sunshine and said a stupid thing like
Everybody thinks that physicists cannot be handsome
I should let him know that
I’m a physicist. I have a working knowledge of the entire universe and everything it contains.
(thanks to The Big Bang Theory producers for letting people know this astronomical truth).
