Moir facts:

   

~Moir means Mother in Icelandic and other Norse languages.

   

~The Ultimate Intimate had a special on the song with an mp3 of the performance and a remix (by luticov) made using the live recording. This special crashed when the server died. 

   

~At the beginning of the mp3 clip Bjork says, "Thank you...ok we gonna uh *squeeze* in a new song now...and its sung in Icelandic, if that's helpful for you all."

   

~The name Moir is was given by the guy who recorded the festival; there was not any bjrk reference or setlist with its name on it.

Although Bjrk says the song is sung in Icelandic, it is her characteristic gibberish style. There are several Icelandic words, but they do not make total grammatical sense. 

    

Icelandic: og hr kem min mir,
og bur aftur, bur aftur mr 

    

Loose English translation: and here comes my mother, 

and waits again, waits again, me

    

Infinite thank yous to Johnathon.
