30 Songs, 30 Days (2009 Edition), Day Six: It's Oh So Quiet by Bjork

And for today....another Bjork song.

It's perhaps the most untypical of her songs--not surprising, as it's a cover--but the great thing about this little ditty off of Post is that it brings to the forefront both her sense of humor and her brassy showmanship. It's something we haven't seen from her in a long while, and it's nice to be reminded they both exist somewhere in that lil' body.

In the original posting of this entry, I mentioned that the record company did not want me to post Spike Jonez' video for the song, which uses Bjork as the center of a big movie musical that the song hints at.  That doesn't seem to be the case anymore...so enjoy!
