21 May 2009on swedish television earlier this week, there was a show filmed in iceland that talks about the current economic problems in iceland from a cultural perspective. the last third of the show focuses on sigur rós – including an interview with goggi. an interesting titbit from the interview is that “með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust” was originally to have english lyrics – but it just didnt work, it felt more natural to have the lyrics in icelandic. so the lyrics were either translated into icelandic or started anew. the show is in icelandic, swedish and english – but people without icelandic and swedish should still be able to get a lot out of it. the sigur rós segment starts at 19:25. you can watch it here.
