there is an old early eighties icelandic punk compilation you might try finding called "rokk reykjavk"

but if youre into sgur rs, you might not like any of these.

Try [color=red]Megas[/color], when you understand him, your Icelandic is good or should I say superb!

I haven't listened to many Bjrk songs. The only one that I've heard that has Icelandic in it is called "Bachelorette". Are many of her songs Icelandic?

I'm also going to look into Megas.

Check out Worm is Green, Mugison, Hilmar Hilmarson (not sure that I spelled that right) did some work with Sigur Ros as well. Mum is one of my favorite bands. Iceland is producing some fantstic music.
