The Pleasure Is All Mine

Bjork - Pleasure is all mine (Live at Canal+)

In keeping with my Dancer in the Dark/Bjork mood, I found this beautiful LIVE version of THE PLEASURE IS ALL MINE, from Bjork's album MEDULLA. Medulla is an album created by Bjork using ONLY vocals as the medium for ALL of the sounds, including those sounds that seem "electronic." As you can see in this video, she is working with a "human beatbox" for sound effects and rhythms, an impressive choir of voices, and an Inuit "Throat Singer" laces it all together. There are no instruments used in this, except voices.

Here are the lyrics:

The pleasure is all mine
to get to be
the generous one
is the strongest stance

The pleasure is all mine
to finally let go
and evenly
be flown

Who gives most
Who gives most
Who gives most

The pleasure is all mine
women like us
we strengthen most
host-like

When in doubt: give
When in doubt: give
When in doubt: give

Cool video, MEDULLA was very underrated and passed below the radar after the Olympics and "Oceania", have you heard her latest stuff from "Drawing Restraint 9" soundtrack...great stuff!
