Bjork: 'Pagan Poetry' Video + MP3


With all the press concerning our favourite Icelandic pixie, Bjork, and her upcoming release Volta, I've been listening to older Bjork and this is one of my favourites from her album Vespertine, "Pagan Poetry". This song twinkles and flares with emotional beauty.

I've included her controversial video for the song which was directed by Nick Knight. Originally banned by the staid MTV for nudity (Bjork is seen in a dress designed by Alexander McQueen that fails to cover her breasts) this video is nearly as beautiful as the song. I should warn you that there are graphic shots of body piercing... you've been forewarned. ENJOY!
(pssst - the lyrics are below)

PAGAN POETRY by Bjork
Pedalling through
The dark currents
I find
An accurate copy
A blueprint
Of the pleasure
In me

Swirling black lilies totally ripe
A secret code carved
Swirling black lilies totally ripe
A secret code carved

He offers
A handshake
Crooked
Five fingers
They form a pattern
Yet to be matched

On the surface simplicity
But the darkest pit in me
Its pagan poetry
Pagan poetry

Morsecoding signals (signals)
They pulsate (wake me up) and wake me up
(pulsate) from my hibernating

On the surface simplicity
Swirling black lilies totally ripe
But the darkest pit in me
Its pagan poetry
Swirling black lilies totally ripe
Pagan poetry

Swirling black lilies totally ripe
....

I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him
She loves him, she loves him

This time
She loves him, she loves him
Im gonna keep it to myself
She loves him, she loves him
She loves him, she loves him
This time
Im gonna keep me all to myself
She loves him, she loves him
And he makes me want to hand myself over
She loves him, she loves him
She loves him, she loves him
And he makes me want to hand myself over
