Bjork: Human Behaviour

The Stories Behind Every Song

by Ian Gittins

Carlton Books, 2002, ISBN 1842226738, colour photographs throughout, large paperback

Very Good Condition, some edge and shelf wear, some rubbing, bumping and creasing to covers, no inscriptions (See photographs)

“A detailed analysis and celebration of Bjork’s career and musical history to date, delving into her creative processes and motivations with the same insight with which she tackles the human condition.  From her precocious and eponymously titled pre-teen debut, through the giddy electro-leaning delights of Debut, to Selmasongs (the soundtrack to the acclaimed movie debut, Dancer in the Dark) and the magnificent Vespertine, Human Behaviour is the definitive companion to Bjork’s musical output.  What, for example is the story behind “Bukokka” – A strange hybrid that mixes an Icelandic Folktale with a Stevie Wonder tune?  Which of her relationships inspired “Hunter”?  What can be elicited from “Venus as a Boy”?  Ian Gitins tells the real stories behind the songs of this remarkable performer.”
