Olafur Arnalds

was born when Bjork already had left Reykjavík for London. The Iceland-based musician first played in Metal and Hardcore groups before he finally joined the ethereous groove of the island – following fellow Icelandic artists like Sigur Ros and the very Bjork. By now he even outmoded them with his spherical music – having released five neo-classical albums and starting to compose movie scores.

your boozed up anthem

I hate anthems. When I’m drunk I want to listen to weird techno music.

best song by Depeche Mode
Depeche Mode - Enjoy The Silence
a song guaranteed to make you feel depressed
Death Cab for Cutie - Stable Song
a record you fell in love to
Jimmy Eat World - Clarity

«Can you still feel the butterflies ? Can you still hear the last good-byes?». The perfect theme song to a long distance relationship.

first record you remember
Todmobile
the song to be played at your funeral
Arvo Pärt - Cantus In The Memory of Benjamin Britten

The ending of that song suggests so much hope for the dead and even though I do not believe in god I would like to believe that death is not the end. 

a song that evokes the greatest summer of your life
Incubus - Make Yourself

I was like 14. It's still the best summer I can remember. I made friends that summer that I still think of as some of the most important people in my life. 

your ultimate heartbreak song
Death Cab for Cutie - Stable Song

It’s off «The Stability EP», which actually seems to be pretty rare, but it's my favorite Death Cab stuff. A girlfriend actually broke up with me WHILE listening to this song. 

first record you bought
2Pac - Greatest Hits
a song you would use as a ring-tone
The theme from «Knightrider»

Goldfrapp - Happiness

I’m very much into music videos so I have a lot of favorites. But I can’t remember much at the moment. My most recent favorite is «Happiness».
