Top 15 Bjork Tunes

 

björk-71

Little baby Bjork

God, I love this woman. I love that she is like no other musician. That her music conveys so much beauty. Her voice so much emotion. I’ve loved her since I first heard the Sugarcubes track Hit (one of the greatest pop songs of all time) back in 1992. However, it was her first single Human Behaviour, as a solo artist that I rushed out and bought on 7″ (yes I am that old) that cemented my lifelong obsession and adoration of the Icelandic singer. Yet, she is more than just a singer. She is an artist, a songwriter, a performer and a composer. Her innovative and eclectic artistry has spanned a 30 year career and I have no doubt that she has a lot more to offer. Her artistic style is so remarkable that you can currently catch a Björk exhibition at MoMA. Tragically, I still haven’t seen her live and can we please not talk about the time she played a Glastonbury that I was attending and heroically drunk on Somerset cider, I didn’t quite get round to making it to the NME Stage in time to watch her. Don’t. It’s almost as bad as the time, I didn’t quite get round to watching David Bowie at Glastonbury (you can’t possibly despair of me as much as I despair of myself).

Favourite Björk album: Homogenic (1997, no.4)

    I love, love, love her voice. It’s so dark and deep, emotionally speaking. I still have Life’s Too Good on TAPE! Lol

    I love Bjork, talented, amazing Kate Bush on speed. I love all of the songs you have picked . Actually there is not one song of her’s that I don’t like. If I had to choose it would be between , Hyperballard, Human Behaviour, All is
    full of love,Bachelorettee, okay if you force me it would be Hunter

    I have never seen Bjork live. My youngest son did , I was not strong enough back then to go so he rang me and I listened for a while.💜💜

    I have always had a soft spot for Bjork, ever since Debut. I think it is impossible for me to choose a favourite track! If I had to pick just one album, though, it would probably be Vespertine; it’s so beautiful.

      I absolutely adore Vespertine. One of my favourite albums of hers.

    Bachelorette and Play Dead are my fave songs, but the older I get the more Vespertine becomes my favourite album.

    Bjork AND Bowie?! Tragedy! I love so many of these, but I’m sorry to see that “It’s Oh So Quiet” didn’t make the list–that one is a lot of fun:-)

      It’s loads of fun. I do adore it, but yep it does miss out on being in my top 15. There are SO many great songs to pick from.
      I know, I know, Bjork AND Bowie- it’s an epic, unforgivable double-tragedy!
