Monday Music Break: Björk

Bjork.  Used in the principles of fair use.

On the drive home from work today I had the Sucker Punch album playing, and I was totally rocking out to Björk's "Army of Me."  I felt like I was really vibing with the beats, and the driving guitar riffs, and the annoyance at people who really need to get over themselves.  So guess what today's Monday Music Break is?

Oh yes.  Prepare to rock out, ladies and gentleman.

As far as I'm aware, Björk doesn't define herself as pagan.  However, she has been taking an increasingly pagan-friendly/pro-pagan stance, and she often evokes some pretty powerful pagan/feminist imagery, like the cover of her Volta album.  Sounds to me like music that would appeal to a pagan audience.

And I don't care what anybody says.  I thought her swan dress was FABULOUS, in a deliciously avant-garde sort of way.  I think that's why I like her so much.  She pushes the boundaries of things like music, fashion, and performance in ways that are artistic and experimental, without being pretentious.

Bjork's swan dress.  Used in the principles of fair use.
You only wish you could be this fabulous.
P.S. my boyfriend would tell me I'm terribly remiss in posting about Björk if I didn't include the Björk song by the Brunching Shuttlecocks.  So I shall leave you with a giggle:


  1. Love me some Bjork! I'll have to dig out the album... or really just find it in my iPod, and give it a listen. Haven't really listened to her in while...

    Thanks for linking up to PPBH!


    1. I just purchased her new album, Biophilia, and I am really digging it - I definitely recommend it. So delightfully, artistically experimental, in a way that really works.
