What is the reason Hoppipolla is so special. Is it a counterpoint or counterpoint-like?

Can it compare to pachelbel canon?

By searching for counterpoint-like music, but no result as good as pachelbel canon, but pachelbel canon is a old thing, we need find good counterpoint-like music.

Can Hoppipolla revise to oboe version, because oboe's is good and relaxing.

Does Hoppipolla music fit counterpoint rule? – user.3898215 Aug 8 '14 at 17:05

Hoppípolla is indeed a song where the counterpoint technique is used. There are distinctive melodies being played by the piano, the strings, the glockenspiel, the brass instruments, and eventually the background/harmony vocals as well. All these melodies are harmonious and form quite a nice melody together, while their rhythms are completely different from each other. Sigur Rós use this technique in many songs, and I personally find it one of the things that makes their music so fantastic.
