    General CommentThis is the first Sigur Ros song that I heard and it brought tears to my eyes. After listening to it on headphones (which I recommend) I started to notice small bits of music that I didn't hear before. This is such a great song, and as for it's meaning, to me it's many different things, depending on my mood. It can make me depressed because I start to think that this would make a great cuddle song and I have no one to cuddle with :(

    General CommentWhen they played this in concert with the two disco balls, I nearly cried. Sigur Rós can make anything beautiful, even cheesy mirror balls.

    General CommentSix and a half minutes of a repetitive piano refrain would be suicide for any other band, but Sigur Rós makes it beautiful. When it shifts up an octave near the end... oh man.

    General CommentI will forever relate this song to Japanese suicides and contradictingly to happiness. This is due to my hearing this song (not for the first time) on a really well done short film not too far back. It was the perfect choice of song for the moment/events and lingers with me as such. Beautiful and mesmerizing.

    General CommentIf you listen in closely at the end of the song you can subtly hear the cloggin and tapping of the piano he used... the wood taps hitting the metal strings of the piano... That's what makes music brilliant! It's that! The little things... that make the song...

    General Commentbeautiful. one time i was listening to this song and it just made me think of a person running through masses of people looking for a person and near the end finding them and thinking about each other.

    General Commentlisten to the song.
    listen extra carefully at 3:16-3:19
    did you notice it?

    this song makes me feel like im swirling around, but never getting dizzy.
    my mind if flying at such a rate, in such odd directions, I have no concentration
    everything is happening at once, so quickly and smoothly.

    this is true musical beauty
