    General CommentThe instrumental intro with the same name as its album is just simply great. First time I heard it I almost came to tears. It's beautiful...it's perfect...it's a great foreword to one of the best albums ever.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. Too bad it's so short, I could listen to it for hours.

    General CommentOne of the most touching instrumentals I've ever heard. It's so short... and doesn't drag on, which makes it perfect.

    General CommentSigur Ros has been compared to The Smashing Pumpkins? WTF I like Sigur Ros but they are hardly similar at all.

    General Commentokay, so i know that this is pathetic, but i actually wrote lyrics to this song...let me know what you think!

    melancholy and the infinite sadness
    oh
    melancholy and the infinite sadness
    infinite sadness
    now

    the night has come to take me
    now
    your tears are the stars
    from heaven above
    your words are the rain
    to carry me on
    your love is so true
    yet i must say
    i cannot stay
    it's my time to go
    it's my time to g(oh)

    melancholy and the infinite sadness
    oh
    melancholy and the infinite sadness
    infinite sadness
    now

    the sapphires sparkle in your eyes
    i swear i'll never forget
    that night
    the impossible became
    what's right
    so indescribable
    are the
    moments of our lives
    you've saved me
    from all i believed
    but i must leave
    but you must believe
    you must recieve
    the light within me
    the love within me
    the night sets you free

    melancholy and the infinite sadness
    oh
    melancoly and the infinite sadness
    infinite sadness

    and now it's time to sa goodbye
    i love you
    please don't
    forget those nights
    my...
    my love i can't...
    i can't go on

    (remember you're the one i miss) - spoken @ the very end

    General CommentAmazing instrumental, but Infinite Sadness is even better. It was the closing track on the vinyl version of Mellon Collie (there are two extra tracks on the 3 LP vinyl album, the other one is Tonite Reprise). It's amazing and should never have been left off the cd. I love this one too, though.

    General CommentIf you love this song, you should really try listening to some Sigur Ros some time. Try Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun to get you started. They've been compared to Smashing Pumpkins, and they create the most beautiful music I've ever heard =)
