Main Music Trivia YMMV
Alternate Character Interpretation: Try to find someone who thinks Björk has an average voice, decent lyrics and an unremarkable fashion style. Go ahead, try.
Best Known For The Fanservice: The video for "Pagan Poetry" sticks out in memory because it features rotoscoped scenes of Björk and Matthew Barney having unsimulated sex. The piercings are also hard to forget.
Broken Base/ Contested Sequel: Some find Volta, and to a lesser extent Biophilia, to be too "difficult" and/or " self-indulgent". For others, this have been the case since . And no, attempting to discuss this anywhere is Homogenic not a good idea.
Covered Up: Her song "It's Oh So Quiet" is a cover of the less well-known Betty Hutton song, "Blow a Fuse".
Creepy Awesome: See Nightmare Fuel below.
Crowning Moment of Awesome: See the Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu? entry on the main page.
Crowning Music of Awesome:
She made an album that's mostly a capella. What have you done?
She made what can best be described as a capella techno. What can you do?
Her epic songs are this. "Hyperballad", "Jóga", "Bachelorette", "I've Seen It All", "Wanderlust" and others are just breathtaking.
"Army Of Me" has an entire album dedicated to covers and remixes. People are still hooked on it so long after it got released. It was even used in Sucker Punch for a key scene.
Heartwarming Moment: "Venus As A Boy".
"My Juvenile", a song she wrote for her son Sindri, definately counts.
Magnum Opus: Debut is considered this by critics, but fans consider Homogenic and/or Vespertine to be her masterpiece(s).
Never Live It Down: The swan dress and the 1996 paparazzi incident (further paparazzi beatdowns go unnoticed).
"Ancestors". By far her most avant-garde song, it features throat singing that turns into a dog choking for air.
"An Echo, A Stain" and "Cover Me" are both extremely spooky.
"Where Is the Line?" has creepy, stuttering bass vocals that could easily qualify. The music video's also rather dark.
The Homogenic cover ◊ has been described by one person as " Satan with Mickey Mouse ears."
"Dark Matter" is also quite creepy, consisting of nothing but a dissonant, rumbling organ with her chanting gibberish over it.
Painful Rhyme: In "The Comet Song", Björk rhymes "comet" with "dammit".
Signature Song - "It's Oh So Quiet", "Hyperballad", "Army of Me", and "All Is Full of Love".
On February 11, 2010, her longtime friend and collaborator Lee Alexander McQueen committed suicide. Bjõrk performed "Gloomy Sunday" in his memorial. If this isn't enough to make you a teary mess, the performance itself will be.
The movie , especially the ending.
Dancer in the Dark "I've Seen It All", "Pneumonia", "Unravel", and "Mother Heroic".
"Pagan Poetry" should also qualify for a lot of people who don't find it to be Nightmare Fuel. Or maybe you find it to be both.
"Jóga" could fill this too.
"Possibly Maybe" is rather depressing as well.
True Art Is Incomprehensible: Compounding that she's married to the artist who made these films, and they collaborated and starred in another film (she also did the soundtrack).
Uncanny Valley: The robots in the "All Is Full Of Love" video.
What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?
