Bjork Remixes


I've found that Bjork is a very polarizing artist, none the less she's an artist in the truest sense of the word. You either like her (usually guys), dislike her (usually girls), or you're unfamiliar with her music all together (children).

A common complaint from her fans is the vast quantity of repackaged albums, singles, promos and compilations that have been released throughout the years. For example, since 1993 Bjork has released 6 official albums... yet there have been 159 different versions issued of these same albums! Her discography is simply ridiculous, here are the numbers of all the different versions: Debut (35), Post (33), Homogenic (29), Vespertine (35), Medulla (29) and Volta (27).

Needless to say there is a lot of Bjork available to those who seek it. Personally I've always loved Bjork's work, and especially the remixes. So here are some of my favourites:

Bjork - Innocence (Simian Mobile Disco Remix)

Bjork - Dull Flame of Desire (Modeselektor's Remix for Boys)

Bjork - It's In Our Hands (Soft Pink Truth Remix)

Bjork - Who is It (Vitalic Remix)

  1. Actually is always like that, many girls hate female artist because they have envy of her and men like them because they are hot, sexy, how knows is very hard to understand the human thoughts. many people act agressive in many ways because they feel menace by someone.

  2. I would disagree with the gender profile you've drawn of her fans and critics.

    This conclusion that less women like bjork than men is not based on any actual statistics. (is it? Where you came up with that conclusion might be useful information.) Don't tell me its the five friends you had in your dorm room when you typed this post.

    The subsequent conclusion by "kamagra jelly" that we must all hate her because she's beautiful has nothing to do with her music and is ALSO speculative. In fact, its a little insulting to think that women would not listen to music by a "true artist" because of the way she looks. I know a few women that are as shallow as "kj" has made us seem, but many of us also enjoy actually listening to music.
