Music Monday: Army Of Me by Björk

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme I picked up from Drew, The Tattooed Book Geek. Music Monday is all about choosing a song you like and sharing it with everyone.

I was trying to hold off posting a Music Monday for a while as I want a better balance of book and non-book related posts on here. Primarily, I want mainly bookish posts. But I was listening to some music tonight whilst cleaning out Stannis of House Baratheon, First of His Name, King of the Andals and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, and Protector of the Realm’s cage and this came on. I had to share.

I love Björk. Her music is magical. I particularly like this track. Björk wrote this as a message to her brother in response to the frustration she felt with him not helping himself. Sometimes I put it on and pretend she is talking directly to me! XD

Fun fact NERD, the drums on this track are sampled from Led Zep’s When the Levee Breaks, which is another cracking tune!

As always, turn to 11, and enjoy.

stand up
you’ve got to manage
i won’t sympathize
anymore

and if you complain once more
you’ll meet an army of me

you’re allright
there’s nothing wrong
self-sufficience please!
and get to work

and if you complain once more
you’ll meet an army of me

you’re on your own now
we won’t save you
your rescue-squad
is too exhausted

and if you complain once more
you’ll meet an army of me

Until next time, Peace, Love and Rock ‘n’ Roll!

    PS! I admire you for always writing out the full Stannis of House Baratheon, First of His Name, King of the Andals and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms, and Protector of the Realm every time 😀 copy/paste from a Notebook on desktop? 😀

    1. Haha, no notebook. I’m actually a really big nerd so I just remember his name. 😛 I’m also a huge Song of Ice and Fire fan, but I try to rarely mention it with me being an actual Stark. Us Stark’s don’t do very well in that world. 🙂

      1. Oh I remember lots of nerd stuff, but PIN numbers, phone numbers, passwords, conversations with people, whether I ate breakfast or not, my own DOB (and age), what day it is, where I put my bank card, which character this is in this book I’ve been reading for the past week – all of those and many more are regularly missing XD
