    General CommentJust so everyone knows, there is no translation because all of these words are made up! Bjork once said when asked if its easier for her to sing in Icelandic or English that she preferred to sing in gibberish.

    General CommentYeah, this song is all gibberish. Bjork said the title means "All the brightness" in icelandic, but the song itself is just singing without lyrics. She said when she was younger she'd sing songs in gibberish because she was terribly shy. It's sort of an ode to her past.

    General CommentI think it's very symbolic that this is an instrumental song. Since Medúlla is a primarily a capella album (songs without instruments), the instrument in this song is the human voice–and thus this is a dedication to its beauty without the distraction of lyrics.
