Day 48: “Bachelorette” – Björk

!!!ITALIANO!!!

A good Saturday to you all friends. Today’s song takes us to Iceland,where one of the most beautiful and peculiar woman voices was born, that is Björk. Another wonderful woman, whose name is Marta, was the one to suggest this track.

An aching melody, words full of metaphors, electronic drums and strings seem to raise up her voice like a flag. Bachelorette is contained in the album Homogenic, 1997, but it is also part of four songs which are ideally related to each other. The other three are Human Behaviour, Isobel and Oceania. These tracks were written together with her friend and poet Sjòn, who is also Icelandic. Director Michel Gondry‘s video is really original and involving, taking place like a stage play about how a writer (Björk herself) reaches success and love thanks to a self-writing book. But it will not be so easy… For you all, today’s song!

Lyrics

I’m a fountain of blood
In the shape of a girl
You’re the bird on the brim
Hypnotised by the Whirl

Drink me, make me feel real
Wet your beak in the stream
Game we’re playing is life
Love is a two way dream

Leave me now, return tonight
Tide will show you sweet bliss
If you forget my name
You will go astray
Like a killer whale
Trapped in a bay

I’m a path of cinders
Burning under your feet
You’re the one who walks me
I’m your one way street

I’m a whisper in water
Secret for you to hear
You are the one who grows distant
When I beckon you near

Leave me now, return tonight
The tide will show you the way
If you forget my name
You will go astray
Like a killer whale
Trapped in a bay

I’m a tree that grows hearts
One for each that you take
You’re the intruders hand
I’m the branch that you break
Hum-yeah!
