Go Super to Listen Go Super!

With so many artists in the world, a lot of music can sound the same. But sometimes, a musician makes music so unique, that the whole world listens. Björk is one of those people.

Björk adds a lot of artistry to her music. Some people do not get what she is trying to do, because a lot of it can sound very spacey. But if you listen to her music carefully, you can hear how creative it really is.


creative adj.


Example Pablo Picasso was an incredibly creative person.

unique adj.


Example Those are really unique shoes. I've never seen any like them before.

artistry n.


Example Her artistry is so unique, I've never seen anything like it before.

get v.


Example I don't get why you like country music. I hate it!

spacey adj.


Example I like to listen to mellow, spacey music before I go to bed. It helps put me to sleep and gives me cool dreams.

In Discussion field it is said that Brian even tries to sing some of Bjork’s music, but in Dialog field there is no a word about it. How come that?

Don’t know any of her songs, but still remember her iconic swan dress that she was wearing on Academy Awards. Well, it’s very unusual and eccentric. An artist, what can you say. Hopefully her songs will speak more to me. But I really liked Shia’s wig, maybe because I hooked on her songs first and then whatever she put on herself was just – I like it! I don’t know will it be the same with Bjork. She’s been famous for quite a long time and still no song of her stuck in my head, but just the swan dress after which I don’t feel like listening her songs. To each its own!

It sounds that most people don’t know Bjork and her works here at English-Baby and It same for me too. This is the first time I heard her name (and that’s why I got no clue how to pronounce her name correctly). This lesson really encouraged me to give it a go, I’ll check it out later. I’m such a kind of guy who like to listen to different and artistic kind of music but still I am not sure whether Bjork is my cup of tea or not. Although It’s great that English-Baby is paying some attention to such a kind of musicians. Personally I am tired that only a handful of celebs are the apple of media’s eye and they keep gossiping and broadcasting about their private life day in day out. 

My favorite singer is Enya (Eithne Ni Bhraonain). Her music is so soulful and nice, not one of those nickel and dime craps. she did wonderful specially in the album of “Paint The Sky With Stars”. I wish to read an article about Enya in English-Baby someday in near future.

I hardly have time to listen to music these days. Even if I listen it’s always Indian classical music or Indian movie songs. So I’m afraid I can’t give my two cents on Bjork’s music. 

Oscar winner A.R. Rahman (Indian) is my favorite musician. His music never fails to put me under a spell!

She has different music. I listen to some of her music. She has her own fans, her music isn’t what I like as I listened they are heartbreaking and touching.

My favorite musicians are Yanni, James Last, Richard Clayderman and Vanessa Mae, I don’t like all of their music, I very like some of them.

I don’t listen to so much music now. I did when I was younger.  I like peace and quiet now when I go home.


music keeps me company whenever i’m alone, or whenever i wanna be away from the world.

It is my first time to know Bjork and I listened to her music just few minutes ago.I can’t understand what she is try to express in her music video.The images looks colorful and I think it try to tell a story or something else,whatever I didn’t get it.

La Princesse de la vie


No, I don’t know her. I’m not actually a fan of a particular musician, I can just like the words here in this song or the beating of music there in that one or I like that signer’s voice like Celine Dion. I’m not necessiraly a devoted fan, I’m more of a picky person, so I’m not fanatic about a special artist that I keep updated with every little work they do.
