Best Bjork Songs

Alexandr

The Top Ten

1 Joga Joga

Pulchritudinous and gorgeous, just like her native Iceland.

Genuinely epic

Her most beautifully crafted epic track is also the greatest song with female vocals ever written in the history of music, ranking just above Arcade Fire's In the Backseat.

This is a very meaningful song and the melody is very touching.

This is just her best track and I was just reading a guide online to her top twenty that didn't mention it and I was inspired to vengeful action.

Feels like the fate of the world depends on this song, its rare to find such beautiful urgency in song form

From an artist with so many songs that feel like they go on forever, who uses her vocals as less a conversation than an instrument, this song is as refreshing as Homogenic itself. One of the most beautiful songs, with lyrics and instruments in perfect balance. I knew it was the best song I had heard in years from the first verse.

The beginning is a shocker. Literal goosebumps all over!

3 Hyperballad Hyperballad

How is this not even in the top ten?! The way it develops throughout the song and the deep lyrics are just beautiful, by far my favourite Bjork song!

One of the finest pieces of music ever recorded! Should stand at #1

Should stand at #1!

Her best song ever, besides Jóga and Pagan Poetry.

4 All is Full of Love

I version prefer this so much 'Howie's version', which is on the album.

5 Army of Me

AND IF YOU COMPLAIN ONCE MORE

Great song, this sounds like a great song for an action movie. It sounds weird at first but then it gets stuck in your head, it grew on me. What I love about Bjork's music is that it is weird but catchy and memorable. Plus, I like how she says "Army Of Me" very unique voice. Graet artist.

Where is the listen to the sample? If people heard this song they will hear how this is her heaviest song. Somewhat like "Zombie" is to the Cranberries.

One of my favourite songs of all time. Love it, its place as number 1 is well deserved.

6 Pagan Poetry

Just watch the video. It's pretty striking.

It seems to fly over white roman ruins among sunny grasslands. Amazing vibraphone sound.

My favourite!

I love the strings in this!

7 Human Behaviour

Bjork has amazing vocals in this song and hits high notes. I tried singing this and it was really hard for me to sing this, those high notes though. Plus the beat is weird and simple, but so catchy and awesome, and the lyrics are amazing.

Bjork bares her singing abilities in this song

Great song - tututu2266

I love this... The message, the videoclip, the melody, the percussion, evrytin

8 Unravel

Thom yorke's favourite song. Case dismissed

This is so goodd - tututu2266

This is the most hauntingly beautiful song she's ever written. Absolutely breath taking and emotionally tense. Personally, I'd say:

01. Unravel
02. Pagan Poetry
03. Joga
04. Hyperballad
05. Bachelorette

For my top 5. "Army of Me" gets an honorable mention.

9 Lionsong

I love this song.

10 Stonemilker

This song makes me cry... is so emotional

Beautiful song

A juxtaposition in fate

This is so emotional it should be on top 10.

The Contenders

11 Earth Intruders

Why this song is not in the top ten? :-(

12 It's Oh So Quiet

I like this song, it reminds me of old folk music, very unique song. It is a very fun song too. It is a very quiet song, but then it gets louder and more upbeat, then it get silent again. Amazing song, what an awesome artist.

It's such a jazzy fun song!

Simply the number one. Crazy, unique and funny.

13 It's Not Up To You
14 Isobel

I feel like this song is one of the greatest mellow songs she has ever written. There is just a lot of emotion in it and the music video is pretty sweet as well.

Absolutely one of her best songs!

This song is super sexy. Has a very slow vibe but brings out everything a bjork fan would love!

Definitely deserves a top spot! Such a lovely song

This is by far the best thing I have ever heard, from Björk, or otherwise. - Mike7215

17 I've Seen It All

One of the saddest and most emotional songs I've ever heard:(

18 Triumph of a Heart
19 Big Time Sensuality

This song is definitely in my top ten ♥

Great dance ever recordes in history

This song is sexy

Incredible!

21 Alarm Call

Love the production on this, so groovy yet serious and consistent. She sings with real vigour and passion on this

22 Notget
23 Crystalline
24 Venus As A Boy

It's my personal favorite of hers! But I honestly feel that this belongs to a top ten.

This song should be in the top ten

25 Enjoy
26 Quicksand
27 I Miss You

One of the more fun songs on Post.

28 Unison

One of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard

genial

This beautiful song should be in the top 10. It's my second favourite track of hers, behind Jóga.

29 Aurora
30 Play Dead

I lik this one

31 Innocence
32 Possibly Maybe
33 Wanderlust
34 Cocoon
35 Pluto
36 Who Is It
37 New World

Such an amazing song

38 Arisen My Senses

I love pretty much everything about this one, especially the layered harps and the way it sounds like she’s having a duet with herself. There’s also excellent production from Arca on here. Its exhilarating, explosive, and hands down the best new thing she has come up with.

39 Oceania
40 Black Lake
41 Cosmogony
42 Mouth Mantra
43 Harm of Will
44 Mutual Core

A crescendo of tectonic plates, for those who have experience an earthquake, this is the real feel. Inside and out

You must have a quality sound system to get the full experience of this song. I love the multi-directional bubbling lava sounds leading up to the epic bass dumping volcanic eruptions!

45 5 Years
46 Declare Independence
47 Crying

I love the wonky piano riff in this song, as well as the ascending vocals. The combination is really impressive, and is one of my personal favorite Bjork songs.

48 Moon

Such a beautiful song

49 The Dull Flame of Desire
50 Thunderbolt
