It would be so great to have a more acoustic record! I believe something like this is possible, but in Björk's fashion (think of stuff like I See Who You Are and Moon, maybe).mrlemonade wrote:I like this because of the guitar, so different from anything else she's done
would love a guitar album from her. I know it's never gonna happen, but who knows, maybe she'll try out everything possible and end up making a folky record
I envy you so much! I'll maybe buy that maxi Yoga cd single, the one with 11 tracks!Blondini wrote:I bought that limited edition box of Joga with the VHS video and 3 CDs in it
It's warmer now lean into it
Unfold in a generous way
It's not meant to be a strife
It's not meant to be a struggle uphill
Undo is my favourite cut from Vespertine, and the message of the song is unusually clear for Björk: you are not meant to struggle with life, and if you are, you just need to "release" and undo. What fascinates me most about the song is the arrangement: the song starts quiet and builds up in a climax that reaches its apex at 3:35, with an explosion of vocals that repeat the leitmotiv of the song ("It's not meant to be a strife") at full power. It then revolves around itself in an anticlimax where another line is repeated but quietly ("I'm praying to be in a generous mood"), thus embodying her desire to undo and get rid of all the struggle.
