BJORK : ISOBEL [SONGS OF CHILDHOOD NOSTALGIA]

Όχι ακριβώς η αναπόληση κάποιας αληθινής παιδικής ηλικίας, αλλά μια σουρεαλιστική ημι-αυτοβιογραφική ιστορία για ένα κορίτσι γεννημένο στο δάσος “από μια ακτίνα”, το οποίο σιγά σιγά αρχίζει να αντιλαμβάνεται ότι τα βότσαλα γύρω του είναι ουρανοξύστες.
Το τραγούδι βρίσκεται στο δεύτερο άλμπουμ της
Bjork, ‘Post’, του ’95.

Not exactly a flashback of some real childhood, but a surreal, semi-autobiographical story about a girl born in the woods “by a spark”, who slowly begins to realize that the pebbles around her are skyscrapers.
The song is on
Bjork‘s second album, ‘Post’, of ’95.

In a forest pitch dark
Glowed the tiniest spark
It burst into flame
Like me
Like me
My name Isobel
Married to myself
My love Isobel
Living by herself
In a heart full of dust
Lives a creature called lust
It surprises and scares
Like me
Like me
My name Isobel
Married to myself
My love Isobel
Living by herself
When she does it she means to
Moth delivers her message
Unexplained on your collar
Crawling in silence
A simple excuse
Nana na na na, Nana na na na
Nana na na na, Nana na na na
In a tower of steel
Nature forges a deal
To raise wonderful hell
Like me
Like me
My name Isobel
Married to myself
My love Isobel
Living by herself
When she does it she means to
Moth delivers her message
Unexplained on your collar
Crawling in silence
A simple excuse
Nana na na na, Nana na na na
Nana na na na, Nana na na na
Nana na na na, Nana na na na
Nana na na na, Nana na na na

    That was very nice! I never did ever give her a fair listen.

      She totally deserves it. She’s one of the very few true geniuses in “contemporary pop”. And she’s an expert in visuals also!
      Thank you Resa!
