With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“You give me miles and miles of mountains and I’ll ask for the sea” April 18, 2010


Do you see how bad smoking is for you now?

So tell me dear readers, how many of you are viewing this while waiting at airports for the cloud of volcanic ash that is crippling Europe at the moment. It is the result of the massive explosion from the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajoekull. It looks likely it will be with us for quite a while yet, click here to read about it’s current path on the BBC website. It seems to be affecting many, many people right now. Gary Lineker took a 24 hour journey back from his holiday in Tenerife to present Match Of The Day last night. A flight to Madrid, a drive to Paris and then Eurostar back to London. John Cleese paid £3,300  for a taxi from Oslo in Norway to Brussels in Belgium, where he also got on board a Eurostar train. So I hope that you find your way home soon. Thankfully I have no plans to take a flight for some time. 

Thar she blows!!!!!

So to help you while away the time here are a few related songs; 

I Can’t Stand The Rain” – Eruption – A disco cover of the classic Ann Peebles song from 1978 

Volcano” – Damien Rice 

Gobbledigook” – Sigur Ros – a rather excellent band from Iceland 

Sigur Ros were cracking up after waiting for a flight......what a bummer

Hit” – Sugarcubes – a great song from the band that included Bjork before she went solo. It’s a weird but superb video 

It has now been discovered that it wasn't an Icelandic volcano that erupted, but it was Bjork's volcano hat

Army Of Me” & “All Is Full Of Love” – Bjork – I love Bjork so I had to include two from her. But she’s a bit of a Marmite artist isn’t she? You love her or hate her 

Bjork had been told that a lemon bath was the only way to wash away volcanic ash

Mum Has Gone To Iceland” – Bennet – A great but underrated slice of Britpop from the 90s
