Bork bork bork!

No Swedish chefs here though. Just Icelandic :). So talking about waifs with one name, Bjork with her biggest hit, from her first (adult) solo album Debut, "Human Behavior". Just in case you didn't live through the 90's. Euro-pop isn't exactly my favorite form of music, but she is definitely interesting, something you can't say for the pre-fab pop tarts you hear so much from today...

  1. I actually occasionally find myself in Bjork moods, for which I own a couple of her CDs. Like those times when the usual liquor does not impress...and something different is needed.

  2. One Fly, this is one of the few Bjork songs that I actually like. Most of her stuff is too much towards the Euro-pop side of things for my tastes.

    On the other hand, I decidedly respect Bjork as an artist. She can definitely wail with the best and she has integrity. She could have gone for the quick money as a child prodigy but instead finished school, paid her dues in a number of bands, then struck out on her own after she'd paid her dues. So Labrys, while I don't have "Bjork moods", don't worry, I'm not going to criticize you for having them. Our tastes just differ, that's all.

  3. LOL...if I was going to worry about being criticized, man, there would be a long list of things to worry about before my musical tastes. Sometimes, the sheer oddness of some of her songs, the peculiar rhythm and timbre of her voice just hit the right spot. I'm very eclectic in my musical tastes---only a couple genres I generally cannot endure.
