Your Weekly, Sunday Interlude: “It’s Oh So Quiet”

When I want to be really loud, this is the loud I want to be! Bjork’s “It’s Oh So Quiet” thrills me. I hope you can relate to being hit out of the blue by passion, like this song describes. It also speaks to the short-lived reality of that thrill and its tendency to get you again and again.

If you haven’t seen the movie “Happy, Texas,” this song is the punctuation to the last scene. It’s a 1999 comedy directed by Mark Illsley, and stars Steve Zahn, ,Jeremy Northam, William H. Macy and Illeana Douglas. A small Texas town with sweet innocents surround two scammers faking that they’re little girl pageant planners. Put it on your list.

Now, here’s Bjork!
