Best Unpronounceable Song of All-Time Nominee

Every once in a while, just when you start to lose faith in music, a song comes along that picks you up, spins you around, and makes you wonder what your life was ever like without it. Such is the case with this somewhat recent release by Icelanders Sigur Ros. Track 4 off their most recent LP með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust" is titled inní mér syngur vitleysingur English translation:'Within me a lunatic sings'

It's so good you have to listen (or watch) it three times...

This first YouTube clip is my favorite for obvious reasons, not the least of which are the two cute chippees jammin out, but also for capturing the essence of the song which is singing crazily and spinning happily. (Be patient thru the first 30 seconds)

The next clip is the official video

So what does it all mean, Basil? Here is a clip with English subtitles

Whether you are listening while walking, jogging, running or driving..TURN IT UP..I guarantee you won't be walking for long...
