30DSC: Music Which Reminds Me of Somewhere

Day 6 of the 30 day song challenge. Today, a song that brings to bring a particular place.

Sigur Ros – Staralfur

The Yorkshire Dales are, I think, absolutely beautiful.

To me they are a place of happy memories of holidays gone by, with blue skies that seemed to go on forever above a lush green landscape, baked by the mid-summer sun. The rivers — cold, dark but inviting; tracking through sheep shit in flip-flops; the excitement of living in a tent; the quiet throaty hiss of a paraffin lamp; the crackle of the fire and stinging eyes from thin plumes of wood smoke; walls of stone, rough against my fingers; dramatic cliffs of impassive rock; rolling hills punctuated with deep valleys.

Sigur Ros is the only appropriate soundtrack.
