BJÖRK : It’s Oh So Quiet
While the song itself is not our favourite Björk number (that might go to either ‘Big Time Sensuality’ or ‘There’s More To Life Than This’ from her debut album intriguingly entitled ‘Debut’) the video clip to her 1995 hit ‘It’s Oh So Quiet’ kinda set new standards in video creation. We knew she was quirky – heck, we’d already seen her on the back of a flatbed truck, but this video was Quirkfactor Five as she set about going all bonkers on us and shrieking at the top of her lungs. But the great thing about this clip is the complete light and shade of the verses versus the choruses – the relative normality of her washing her hands in the bathroom to the dance sequence in the tire showroom – and that ending… Colour, movement, fun, frivolity. Pure genius.
