Bjork sounds like a dying animal getting razor blade dildos shoved up its ass singing over random techno tones.

To all you Bjork lovers and haters, let me all agree with you. She is the Yoko Ono of pop music.

She got famous by being the most talented solo female artist in the world. Incredible music, incredible videos, always breaking new ground.

She`s better than a lot of "singers" out there atm.... Despite the weird tectonic plates theme, it didn`t assault my ears as much as Ke$ha or Chris Brown does :P

She got famous because not everyone likes Katy Perry or Fergie or other similar "artists". Bjork is a lot different, and so are a lot of people on the planet.

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.

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.

Sorry Gerry, but thank you anyway for posting this, I hadn`t seen the video yet.

I love Bjork, I can understand why some people don`t like her work, but I feel thats only because they haven`t truly listened to it and been open about it. She only gets a bad rap because she`s viewed as "abnormal"

VIVA BJORK!!! Bjork`s music is what has kept me alive during the darkest times in my life...I find it funny that this desert dweller finds inspiration from a quirky little icelandic woman....this woman saved my life with her voice and lyrics....with that said screw the person who posted this!!

drawman61 you`re using the word pretentious wrong. pretentious refers to a person that calls people or things pretentious when they don`t understand what said person, or thing, is enjoying, or is.

She is to music what the Tate Modern is to art. People claim to like both because they`re pretentious and need to be seen as hip.

@2L82Pray:
I am offended by your comment.

Kim Kardashian is arab trash.

Us white trash have plenty of representatives without reaching into the depths of Hollywood hell, thank you very much.

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!"

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!

Of course you can compare that to, say New Kids on the Block - far more famous, no talent whatever and no song anything but irritating.

"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.

Hey, I have no financial stake in this and I am not one of her employees , therefore it is indeed nightmarish

I love her music from `90s, the latest accomplishements not so. This is not bad, though.

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

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.

Bjork is like cognac.

Late at night, after a few tokes, her music is mind blowing. On a sunny morning with my scrambled eggs... not so much.

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.

Caption fail. Maybe the biggest caption fail in IAB history.

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

Well, I was gonna tell you exactly how she got famous, looks like everyone else took care of it for me...well most of them anyway. There will always be people that don`t get her and I wouldn`t have it any other way.

You`re right. It is incredible that someone with talent actually became famous in the midst of all the pre-packaged garbage pop stars.

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.

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"

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.
