Bjork Avant Gaga, (this program is going to be followed by The Liebster Award)

I’m a Little Monster…. Ok a Big Fat Little Monster. Gaga is the best thing the pop music scene. No, I have no sympathetic sentiments for Rhianna or Katy Perry or whoever else. I’m exclusively Gaga’s.

Pero minsan nang napatambay ako sa blog “The Nutty Thoughts”, may nabasa akong entry about Bjork. She was one of the prominent and unique music artists in the late 90’s.



Ladies and gentlemen… this is Bjork. For more info, go to Wikipedia or consult Nutmeg Bello because he’s Bjork’s biggest fan here.

Sabi ko noon na Lady Gaga started a new era in the music industry. But I failed to realize who is the real precursor of all these kagagahan. It was Bjork. If Lady Gaga to the modern music industry is like Martin Luther to the Protestant Movement, then Bjork is like Savonarola, who planted the early seeds of gaganess. Yes, only priests, bible scholars and protestants would understand this.

But anyway, all I’m saying is nasimulan na ni Bjork noon pa ang lahat ng mga kagagahan.

Before the trashy lyrics and the redundant syllables in Lady Gaga’s songs, there was the poetic electronic dance music of Bjork. Way back in the late 90’s (one more mention of this at mapaghahalatang matanda na talaga ako), Bjork’s music was totally unique and outstanding. Her lyrics were poetry- I couldn’t understand a thing (except for one of her song ‘It’s Oh So Quiet’). She’s a diva on the stage. And you simply can’t get enough of her.



Before Gaga’s meat dress, disco stick, and all her flamboyant regalia, there was Bjork’s Swan Gown.

Before Gaga’s pro-gay marriage campaigns, there were already the political movements endorsed by Bjork.

Bjork for Tibet's freedom from China


Before Gaga’s Machete Kills cameo, Bjork was an actress in the Cannes Film Festival Award-winning movie Dancer in the Dark, directed by movie genius Lars von Trier.



So if you’re a Gaga-hater and blaming all these kagagahan on Lady Gaga, well, she didn’t start the fire. Blame Bjork! Hehehe! But no of course. Don’t do it. The two ladies are simply the best.



MOVING ON TO OUR NEXT PROGRAM…

  1. I know Bjork but not to the extent of how Nutty knew her. Personally, I am not a fan of any of the lady pop singers but I do like some of their song - entertainment wise.

    I am just sensitive if the theme of their songs border that of my faith. I'm quite uncomfortable with the idea. - just my two cents.

    1. Gaga's never been an issue with my faith, because I practically ignored my religion as regards to Lady Gaga. Hehehe. I know I shouldn't but I can't. I love her too much!

  2. I love her ...she was iconic ...Gaga on the other hand needs to pull herself up together ...her artpop album was not subpar from her previous works ...

    1. I remember even in the late 90's maka Bjork na din ako. Then in the early 2000 nakalimutan ko na siya. Nag move on na rin kasi ang industry while Bjork remained true to her calling as an artist.

    1. I beg to differ. Lady Gaga is as ARTIST as well. Pero ang focus ng art niya talaga ay sa pop culture at sa phenomenon ng pursuit for fame.

      Bjork got her moment in music history because of her originality, as well as Lady Gaga. But we have to give Bjork the credit as being the very precursor of the gaganess in music.

      As for the others, they're nothing but a second-rate, trying hard, glitter-ass-auto-tuned betches.

    1. Grabe. And to think na nobody's even saying anything about Gaga's outfit now. Even Vogue made her their cover girl. Hay nako, fashion nga talaga.
