    Don't listen to this kinda stuff normally, but this is breathtaking! Heard it on the BBC Earth advert and finally found out what it's called.

    I would say most people have heard it. Mainly because it's used as music for dramatic/heartbreaking/hopeful montages and videos!

    A well-known tune, but a less well-known song, beautiful.

    Really? I only heard first on the BBC Advert like a few weeks ago. Found out what it's called only recently.

    Considering loads of their songs are in a language they made up, I doubt it..!

    Hoppipolla is their most over-rated song. It's good, yes, but not as good as some of their other material. Just poke around on YT and there's dozens of gems waiting to be found.

    No you aren't. Severely dull music.
