Bjork!

Since Wednesday I've had Bjork on random on both my iPod and the computer. It has been a long-long time since I've listened to her, and now I can't seem to stop. I'm loving every second of driving around Hsinchu with her voice in my head. Beautiful.

Bjork, some Tori Amos and a bit of U2 helped me survive my final year of high school back in the early nineties. Mostly Bjork helped me survive my first year at university which was potentially the worst year of my life. So we go way back. And I still love her and her music every bit as much as I first heard her voice in my high school dorm room in '94.

Here's some vintage Bjork for you on this lovely Friday.



And then something more recent, a beautifully haunting collaboration with Antony Hegarty of Antony and the Johnsons.



And if you're interested, go here for a short NPR interview with Bjork for 50 Great Voices

Wow, I hadn't heard that Antony/Bjork collab before. I love it! No one can make me cry as much as bjork in Dancer in the Dark.
