It’s Oh So Quiet is in my opinion no less than a fantastic cover version by islandic Björk (and a song from her without too much screaming). And without doubt her biggest hit. I am not a big Bjork fan but the sound on It’s Oh So Quiet is great. I like the way the song gets on the way with a kind of lazy mood in a childish tone and in the middle almost stops completely. Simply a music masterpiece that made Björk an international star. I really like this song and have thus also tried to explore the Björk universe but I just can not find the love in it. But never the less It’s Oh So Quiet is one of my favourite songs that I listen to now and again.
Highest UK chart position was #4.
It’s Oh So Quiet is on the Björk album Post and the song may also be remembered for the music video by Spike Jones that set an almost musical mood with dancing all around the streets.
