Sigur Rós and Richard Armitage

Servetus in her late post commented about the exceptional music of the group Sigur Rós from Iceland.
This brought me back to my first RA-video and reminded me, that for me, the music of this band had (next to the obvious influence by RA) the greatest impact on me to make my first RA-video.
I first encountered the music of Sigur Rós in videos about Richard Armitage and got so interested in their music that I searched for more. Their website was a great inspiration and the music used in the following video was freely available at the website during that time.

Since this time, I already have bought quite some of their albums and have them as constant companion on my mobile phone, as I travel a lot by train.
The only other audio files worthy to get space on my mobile phone, besides the audio-books read by Richard Armitage, are Beethoven and, if he behaves well, Franz Liszt with his orchestra pieces. You will have already deducted from my choice of music, that I normally avoid singers, so Sigur Rós with their quite instrumental use of voice is stunningly wonderful for me.
My favourite music by Beethoven I have already used in a video. In more senses than one it stands at the beginning for me, my fandom and this blog.

Perhaps I should try "Mazeppa" by F. Liszt next with a certain scene from Strike Back 2? I am sure, you easily can figure out, which scene I have in mind, if you know the beginning of the music ;o)
