ArisAris/BandW, Fabia, Dulce Secrets and SR Poses @ InspirationSL September Event – by PetraLAlexander-Valerian©™

Björk – It’s Oh So Quiet – Song and Video

The song was covered by Icelandic musician Björk in 1995. It was released as the third single from her second album Post and remains her biggest hit, reaching number 4 in the UK and spending 15 weeks on the UK Singles Chart.

The video begins as Björk emerges from an extremely dirty washroom in an auto shop. She dances along with the auto workers for the first chorus, then emerges from the shop. During the second chorus, she dances tap with a few people outside of the auto shop. Björk continues to walk along the street, dancing with several elderly women and their umbrellas before settling to rest her arms on top of a mailbox for the final verse. The mailbox comes alive and dances along with Björk during this chorus. Björk then runs down the street and into the road, where the rest of the town has decided to join her for one large dance number. The video ends with Björk floating up above the townsfolk and hushing the viewer.

RAYNE @ InspirationSL September Event – by PetraLAlexander-Valerian©™

Björk – Army of Me
~ from the movie Sucker Punch, Three Samuari scene.
In addition to appearing in the Tank Girl in 1995, the song was included in the soundtrack of Sucker Punch with further instrumentation by Skunk Anansie and remixing by Marius de Vries.

“I’m a polar bear and I’m with five hundred polar bears, just tramping over a city. The lyric is about people who feel sorry for themselves all the time and don’t get their shit together. You come to a point with people like that where you’ve done everything you can do for them, and the only thing that’s going to sort them out is themselves. It’s time to get things done. I identify with polar bears. They’re very cuddly and cute and quite calm, but if they meet you they can be very strong.”
~ Björk talking to Jon Savage about the song.
Lyrically, the song was inspired by the damaging behavior of Björk’s brother, and in the lyrics she tells him to stand up and to regain control of his life. The song was well received by music critics, who noted its darkness and praised Björk’s energy.
