Atom Dance - Bjork

from the album Vulnikcura (2015)

I've got a friend named Johnny Valdosta.  He is a bonafide Bjork freak.

Any gathering at his house inevitably climaxes with Bjork videos synchronized on four walls with music booming louder than any Miami night club.  When Bjork is played anywhere else, he devolves to the point of losing his dignity.

Our friends know better than to ever even mention Iceland's eclectic princess.

So next time we're are all gathered together, I look forward to asking "So what do you think of the new Bjork album, Johnny?"

He will be so happy.

I will share that my favorite track on the album is Atom Dance.  I imagine his jaw agape and eyes unblinking in the splendor of this unexpected choice.  The orchestral arrangement, the vocals, the second half which forms a song within a song.  As someone in cyberspace offered "her own personal beat heavy and sadly beautiful Blood On The Tracks."  I dig it.

Does Johnny Valdosta think you're cool?
