Eyjafjallajökull

Posted by on Apr 9, 2020 in Creativity, Music, Nostalgia | No Comments

Just for nostalgia purposes, here’s a callback to the time, about a decade ago, when an erupting volcano grounded European flights, and not un-coincidentally, where I made a dance remix of Sandi Toksvig pronouncing the name of the Icelandic glacier “Eyjafjallajökull”.

A couple of friends of mine told the BBC about it and the News Quiz production team played to Sandi, who apparently loved it, and it was then featured on the News Quiz the following week (23 April 2010) and also in the News Quiz of the Year end-of-year roundup, on New Year’s Eve 2010.

Backing vocals by Andy Hamilton. All music put together by me, using Apple loops in GarageBand.
