Big in Iceland, 2003

Three songs were all over the radio and TV when Kelly and I were in Iceland in 2003 for our honeymoon, and I find that they frequently pop into my head.

“Be Faithful” by Fat Man Scoop

I love the sampled from “Chic Cheer” & Black Sheep, but what gets me about this song is how in your face is. It’s exhausting to listen to, and the video is a little terrifying.

“Slow” by Kylie Minogue

I like all the whitespace in this one. Weird that the video takes place poolside because all I think about when I hear it is the frozen Reykjavik landscape. If I remember correctly, I took this picture out the window of of our bus back to Keflavik:

“Call of the Wild” by Gus Gus (Warning! It’s gross.)

Sorry about this one! When the video for this was on in our hotel room, we couldn’t stop watching. I can’t imagine this ever playing on US TV. Definitely recontextualizes the title and lyrics.
