I “sang” “Love Will Tear Us Apart” at our 2010 staff Holiday party and supposedly sounded like “an Eastern European guy who’d never heard the song before.” Björk does a better job.

It was held at the Nordic House in Reykjavik and has so far resulted in 46,000 signatures. Here’s Björk:

Take a look at the petition at orkuaudlindir.is. You’ll find background information on the situation with Magma at The Grapevine. The Karaoke Marathon may be ongoing.
