Smekkleysa. More commonly known as Bad Taste, Smekkleysa is the record label for numerous Icelandic artists like Sigur Ros and the Sugarcubes (and now some of the ex-cube members). It's called Bad Taste because, according to smekkleysa.net, the enemy of creativity is "frugality" and "good taste".
Isadora. She was born in 2001, about 16 years after Sindri.
Bachelorette. She was originally intended to sing two songs, but a sketch went on for too long and there was not enough time.
polar bear. One video, "Hunter" shows herself morphing into a polar bear and then back again.
2. Both were designed by Marjan Pejoski, one was black and one was white. The white dress also appears on the cover of "Vespertine".
$2056.10. Selma, of course, was played by Bjork. She won an award for Best Actress at the Cannes Film festival and the movie won "Best Film".
Post. If you weren't considering Gling-Gl-, you probably chose Homogenic. Gling-Gl- (Icelandic for "tick-tock") was released in 1990, whereas Post was released in 1995.
Domestika. Also spelled Domestica or Domesticka. The rest of these are songs on the album, released in late 2001.
Post. Just the same songs with new remixed, replacing "It's Oh So Quiet" with "My Spine". Most Bjsrk fans recommend buying both if you are very interested. 'Telegram' is usually cheaper than Post, but in my opinion, the quality is as well.
Winona Ryder. She acted..erratically. I believe her dialogue was based off "It's Oh So Quiet". I was surprised to find out that bjork.com actually acknowledged this impersonation!
She ran into a lamp post. According to a little story on the website, she learned to run down a busy street with her eyes closed, relying on her other senses until one day she ran into a lamp post.
"Blue State of Mind". "Blue State of Mind" is sung by Grey DeLisle. "These other tracks were extras for Vespertine which were not included on the album. Verandi is its own song, Hearts & Bones is another version of Hidden Place, and Odd Duck is another version of an Echo a Stain.
Exodus. The Sugarcubes were formed in 1987 with Bjork, Einar ...rn, Siggi Baldurson, Th-r Eldon, Magga ...rn-lfsd-ttir and Bragi Olafsson. They broke up in 1992 after 4 albums: 'Life's Too Good', 'Here Today, Tomorrow, Next Week', 'Stick Around for Joy' and 'It's It'. In 1998 a cd of remixes of theirs titled 'The Great Crossover Potential' was released. Exodus was among Bjork's least memorable bands.
11. She was born in 1965 in Reykjavik, Iceland. (The World Almanac states she was born in Rheinberg, Iceland, but that is the only source in which I have seen a city other than Reykjavik as her birthplace) This vinyl album contained one song which she had written herself. There was also a version with 10 songs. This version is now very rare and can fetch prices from $100 to $700!
Guðmundsdóttir. No wonder we rarely see it used! It means "Guðmundur's Daughter". She dropped her last name after going solo in 1993/93. In Iceland, so many people have the same name that the phone books are listed not only by first name, but list their occupation as well! Most Icelanders use a patrilineal naming system where the father's name is added to a -son or -dottir, depending on if the child is a boy or a girl.
June 1993. With hit singles like "Human Behavior", "Violently Happy", "Big Time Sensuality", and "Venus as a Boy", "Debut" turned Bjork into an international sensation.
Spain. She recorded "Homogenic" at a scenic residential recording studio in El Madronal in southern Spain.
The Game. "Tank Girl" features a couple of Bjork's tunes, while "Dancer in the Dark's" Oscar-nominated soundtrack is contained on Bjork's album "Selmasongs"- she played the character Selma in her acting debut in that Lars Von Trier film. "Stigmata" features "All is Full of Love" from Bjork's 1997 release, "Homogenic".
Bjork. You likely don't have this one in your collection, as it was released in the late 70s in very limited numbers in Iceland when Bjork was still just a child. "Debut" is the name of Bjork's first solo album and "Life's Too Good" is the name of one of The Sugarcubes' best-selling albums. K.U.K.L. was the name of an Icelandic punk band Bjork sang for prior to joining The Sugarcubes.
|The end of the video for which song features a highly animated Bjork tearing a live chicken in half by grasping a leg in each hand and pulling in opposite directions?||Bjork, the Icelandic Diva
I Miss You. PETA people can relax- the majority of the video, including the aforementioned chicken rending part, were animated. The video was produced by John Kricfalusi, creator of Ren and Stimpy, and the animated portions of the video feature the quirky cartoon stylings of the original "Ren and Stimpy" episodes.
Gudmundsdottir. Sigur jon Birgir Sigurdsson has co-written a handful of songs with Bjork, including "Joga" and "Scatterheart." Gabriela Fridriksdottir did the artwork on Bjork's "Family Tree" box set. Flemming Rasmussen produced a few albums for Metallica before Bob Rock took over for the band's 1991 self-titled release and doesn't have a connection to Bjork that I'm aware of.
