10 best songs of Björk according to UachateC

10. In the musicals – Selmasongs

As we discussed above, we love Dancer in the dark and it is because of scenes like this that the film is forever etched in the mind of the viewer, a drama stronger than most of what Hollywood dares to film is intertwined with scenes of great beauty in which this woman who sees life in such a difficult way takes the time to feel her life and love her life as if it were a musical.

9. Violently Happy – Debut

Debut was the first album we heard and analyzed by this great artist and it is where her journey as a soloist begins with unique melodies that put her on the musical map forever, after this she would never touch the ground again, Violently Happy is without doubt one of our favorites for its simplicity without neglecting all the style that would make her one of the most influential people in the world of music of the twentieth century.

This song is the most recent on our list, as the name implies, this song talks about human relationships and makes an analogy with the tectonic plates of the earth, which are usually peaceful but occasionally collide and release large amounts of energy.

Withheld your love, an unspent capsule

6. Like Someone in love – Debut

Although it is hard to imagine Björk as an ordinary teenager, with her problems and concerns, as it is what shows in this melody that it is the first song that we fell in love with from the first album we heard from her and it is a perfect example of why you should listen to a album beyond their singles.

Mostly whenever you’re around me ♪

We cannot leave aside this great song that is one of the favorites of his fans, part of his second album and that has made its way over the years to establish itself as one of the great classics within his extensive work.

4. New world – Selmasongs

The second song from the film that makes its way onto our list is this beautiful theme, immediately after one of the strongest and most disturbing scenes that can be seen in any cinematographic work, this song makes its way that gives a little hope to despair that we have just witnessed, a work of musical art that closes a great job.

♪ If living is seeing
I’m holding my breath
In wonder – I wonder
What happens next?
A new world, a new day to see ♫

3. Pagan poetry – Vespertine

Wikipedia says:

«» Pagan Poetry «has been highly praised by critics, citing it as a highlight of the album. Allmusic said of» Pagan Poetry «that it» shares a broad serenity with more of the album’s quieter moments «and included this song as a track selection, Rolling Stone magazine said: «Pagan Poetry» unfolds the skies of Zeena Parkins with the harp and a ship of music boxes with an Asian tea house touch. Blender said: «Pagan Poetry» sounds like the prelude to a particularly exotic sexual interlude. » In March 2006, at number 77 of the Spanish edition of Rolling Stone, «Pagan Poetry» was ranked at number 38 by Spanish music professionals and experts in a list of the best songs of the 21st century. Slant Magazine said of the album «Vespertine delicately leaves traces of the cycle of said relationship» and called the song «the loss of personal identity and the complete possessive trap» Pitchfork Media placed the song at number 227 on their list of «The Top 500 songs. from the 2000s «».

And we cannot agree more with all of the above, we are facing a full-blown masterpiece.

I once read in a Mexican magazine that the one who wrote there had walked around Paris listening to this song with his headphones and that it had been a spectacular experience.

I do not doubt for a second that it was so.

♫ On the surface simplicity
But the darkest pit in me
It’s pagan poetry

2. It’s oh so quiet – Post

We know that it is a bit predictable that this song will be on the podium but the truth is that it shows us Björk’s love for music and art in general, it is true that it is a cover, but what a cover! a great groundbreaking song also in terms of her music video winner of multiple awards around the world that deserves to be in second place although it is probably the most commercial work of her.

  1. I´ve seen it all – Selmasongs

We love Björk, we love Dancer in the dark and last but not least we also love Thom Yorke so the obvious choice for our first place was this work that has it all, lyrics, music and also Thom an immense song that we never got. we will tire of listening and recommending.

It is true that the scene of the film does not have the participation of the vocalist of Radiohead but it is the version that does have his voice that we will always prefer.
