The Horror Honeys: Supernatural Sunday Jam ~ 'Isobel'

Supernatural Sunday Jam ~ 'Isobel'


In a tower of steel
Nature forges a deal
To raise wonderful hell
Like me
Like me
My name isobel 
Married to myself
My love isobel
Living by herself


Björk is one of those artists that has gone a long way toward making it clear it's okay for spooky girls to be themselves. Mainstream pop culture has never fully embraced her (except for its brief love affair with "It's Oh So Quiet," her most commercial song ever), but those of us on the fringe have never stopped loving that eight feet of trouble stuffed into a four foot sack. So much of her music has been ethereal and ghostly, but my personal favorite is "Isobel," which features a magnificent video directed by Michael Gondry. So let your freak flag fly, with Isobel, Björk, and the Honeys! ~RH
