Soundtrack of my Life: “Go Do” by Jonsi


Sigur Rós is my meditation music. So I’m well aware of Jónsi’s penchant for falsetto and ethereal prettiness.  But the reason that “Go Do” is my favourite Jónsi song is because it is so damn euphoric. Over a dominant percussive line, he tosses out line after line of optimism and support. “We should always know that we can do everything” is the key line of the song,  an unrelenting propulsion of thunderous drums bringing everything to a vibrant conclusion. “Go do.”

As a new year begins and we all decide what we are going to achieve in 2017, a song like this can do wonders.

“Go sing, too loud, make your voice break.”

I love my Icelandic oddballs.
