Recommend me a few good Bjork songs?


I'm listening to Hunter right now, and I really like it. What are your favorites? I feel like I can get into her music, but I haven't yet.

Big Time Sensuality was really popular. And wonderful.
Bachelorette is sweeping big beats, I love it.
Also, I've Seen It All with Thom York.
And Isobel is very beautiful.
Have you heard Birthday, her song with the Sugarcubes?
Hyper-Ballad - takes a little while to build but it is SO beautiful.
As is Joga! I LOVE Joga.

They are all dotted around on different albums but if you find them and you haven't heard them yet, let us know what you think x

Everything she ever recorded, ever?

Highlights include: Possibly Maybe, Unravel, Virus, Crystalline and of course, All Is Full Of Love

Oooh I forgot Cosmogony. That song is a magical secular hymn of incredible.

Personally I don't like Björk at all. I do, however, like her old band; The Sugarcubes. Their sound isn't entirely different from hers, so maybe they're worth a listen, too?
I can recommend Birthday, Regina, Fucking in Rhytm&Sorrow and Cat.

I've Seen it All, which is from the film Dancer in the Dark that she also appears in.
Also Army of Me, Human Behaviour, Pluto, 5 Years, There's More to Life Than This. They're some of my favourites anyway. Her music is very varied, but you can guarantee to find at least one song that fits whatever mood you're in!

Since it is Christmas: It's Oh So Quiet Not really a Christmas song, more the story of my life song, but the tune and arrangement reminds me of Christmas.

Play Dead is good to listen to when being heartbroken.

Also check out Plaid featuring Björk "Lilith". One of my all time favourite songs.

Human Behavior is a good one; I love LOVE Venus as a Boy even though it's one of her most popular songs.

So Broken is also one of my favorites.

I can't believe that no one has mentioned All is Full of Love yet! Earth Intruders, Declare Independence, Enjoy, I Miss You...
I also second Alka's suggestion about Medulla.

Robyn did an amazing cover of "Hyperballad" a few years ago. Still gets me chills.
