    First off, thanks for posting this. I think I wouldn`t have seen it otherwise.
    Secondly, and this is without trolling, if you can`t see what makes Björk a good performer by looking at this clip you are seriously lacking basic knowledge of what makes something good and what makes something bad.
    I do not say you have to like this style of music or Björk, but this is technically, visually and musically very well done and it shows without a doubt that Björk has a right to be famous for something.

    she was the trendy pick for the hipster crowd backin the early nineties... this isnt half as bad f some f her stuff...I watched her once wear a costume of what looked to be about 15,000 little cat bells glued into a full body suit, and at random times she would slap herself to make them jingle at completely random times through out her vocal solo. "artist"

    why is she famous?

    Because she`s an amazingly talented woman who`s been writing since she was a child.

    You may not like it or the art direction but TRUST ME, she absolutely deserves her notoriety.

    Just because something is not in your musical taste (old man music) does not make it WTF, it just makes you out of touch.

    Talent and fame worthiness aside(I think she`s pretty talented), She`s singing about things that suggest the world is not flat, nor is it 6000 years old; It would be a small leap to figure she therefore believes in evolution and... ye-gads, equal rights.
    Look for the Pope and your garden variety religious nutbags to condemn her as promoting the devil`s music.

    so...I put her in the same category of Die Antwood. I don`t know what that category is...or what it means for them to be in it... I will say though that I like Die Antwood MUCH more than Bjork.

    Visually amazing! I couldn`t stop watching. So if one wants to question how a brilliant Performance ARTIST got famous for taking her art form seriously (like her art or not) I want to know how singers get famous for dancing around half-naked singing songs they didn`t even write themselves, and why the Kardashians are famous for being the apex of white trash

    "How the hell did this lady get famous?"

    By singing rather good songs as front man of the Sugar Cubes.

    This song has good moments, but it would never have sold without her existing fame. Like the Icelandic imagery on the video though.

    When I see someone hating on Bjork (who I watched live and loved it), one thing comes to mind:

    Ignore their patronizing...
    Tear off their blindfolds...
    Open their eyes...

    Declare independence!

    Sure, she may have gotten a bit more eccentric as time progressed. Money allows for that, truthfully. Artistic expression, such as this, used to have a greater impact on culture in the form of bards, troubadours, play actors and the like. European cultures were filled with these kinds of people at one point.

    I find it fascinating, personally. The folklorist, the bard, etc. are making a comeback with a new understanding of what it means to be part of the Earth. I, for one, prefer this kind of artistic expression opposed to the bland globalized American style. Yes. I said it. America is the devil, etc... whatever.

    All that to say, "Go Bjork! Go Iceland. Go Skandinavian culture, in general!"

    One of the first albums I ever bought for myself was Debut, and I never stopped buying her albums, even after the advent of piracy. Björk is in a class of her own, a thoroughly amazing artist.

    Well, she always seems to have a pattern, one "archaic" instrument, one avant garde sound idea, and one or two unincorporated themes. So as completely different every album sounds they are still familiar and comfortable.

    Gerry1of1 if you think Bjork is bad you should listen to the crap I play. OMG even I think it`s bad sometimes.
