Björk: Unravel

This quiet week there’s hardly anyone spending time online visiting this blog, so I’m just going to post some stuff connected to my choice of album of the decade (drumroll:) Björk’s Vespertine.

While you are away
My heart comes undone
Slowly unravels
In a ball of yarn
The devil collects it
With a grin
Our love
In a ball of yarn

He’ll never return it

So when you come back
We’ll have to make new love

  1. Interesting choice, Anne! Although I loved Homogenic, I never spent much time with Vespertine, for some reason. Your post has encouraged me to revisit it, so thank you for that, and for the videos.

  2. Homogenic is great. Interesting how Unravel and some of the other songs on H. foreshadow the quiet intensity of the later album. I guess I just prefer her without beats :)
