Songs called songs : The Anchor Song

Björk: The Anchor Song


Björk is unique. To me she's the perfect incarnation of the Artist, unpredictable, with a genius that takes her and the listener to strange and virgin musical landscapes, just like the ones on her native Iceland. And her voice...

With time I realized that all the artists I love have a voice, and that vocals is to me the best instrument ever. Here she just sings with the backing of three Coltrane-like saxophones, and takes us into one of her weird fairy tales.

If I was Odysseus and she was a mermaid, never would I have made it to Ithaca..
