Glósóli (6:16)

Cover of Takk...

From Takk... and 6 other releases

“Glósóli” (Icelandic for “Glowing Sole”) is a song by Sigur Rós, released as part of their 2005 album Takk… Together with “Sæglópur” it was the first single released from the album, available as a download only release on iTunes in America and Europe respectively.

The name is a combination of gló- from the verb að glóa meaning “to glow, shine, glitter” and sóli meaning “sole.” The second element of the name, sóli, shares its grammatical stem with the word “sól”, meaning “sun”. In combination “glósóli” can be understood as a childish way of saying “glowing sun”.
