Throwback Thursday: Björk

bjork throwback

For today’s throwback we feature Björk’s homage to 50’s musicals with “It’s Oh So Quiet“.

      1. Björk : It's oh so quiet


The song is by American singer Betty Hutton which is the cover of the German song “Und jetzt ist es still“, performed by Horst Winter in 1948. The song got into the hands of Bjork in 1995, fueled with the music video directed by Spike Jonze, where she sings and dances in the middle of the street. Elderly women and their umbrellas join the performance as well as workers on the auto shop join her on a tap dance. All alternating between slow-motion and regular-speed. For sure, one of the most memorable videos of all time!
