Iceland - "Eftir eitt lag"

Hi everyone, we are happy to take part in Schoolovision once again. We are always waiting for this event in the spring. This is now a special part of our schedule in our schoolwork for many years. But here's our song namedAfter one song”. Song contest (Flatóvision) was held in our school last February and seven songs were performed in order to choose the song that would be the Icelandic contribution in Schoolovision 2014.



This song deals with friendship, as friends find it difficult to separate to go home. They want to stay longer together and chat and that's why they always postpone departing for one more song.

Nine year-old kids in our school won the contest this time and the video was taken when they went skiing in Bláfjöll and when they went bowling in Öskjuhlíð. The spherical structure (Perlan) you see in the video is a restaurant built on top of the hot water supply tanks and from there you can see the whole city (Reykjavík).
Hope you enjoy our melody and our video? Here is the text in Icelandic so you can read and hear how it sounds.

A very catchy tune and lovely film showing the area around your school. There are some very unusual looking buildings!

The singers are strong too, and I found myself humming along with the song very easily.

Well done, and good luck!

Hi Iceland,

I like the melody in your song very much and the singing was very good too!

It is nice to see how Iceland looks like in the spring and the buildings you have over there are extraordinary!

Good luck on the voting!

A shame that this song hasn't made it into the ESC, but perhaps the interpretation wasn't as convincing as yours.
Great to see your Flatovision contest with the supporting dancers in this entry once again.
