It's Oh So Quiet
Björk Lyrics


It's oh so quiet
Shh shh
It's oh so still
Shh shh
You're all alone
Shh shh
And so peaceful until

You fall in love
Zing boom
The sky up above
Zing boom
Is caving in
Wow bam
You've never been so nuts about a guy
You want to laugh you want to cry
You cross your heart and hope to die

'Til it's over and then
Shh shh
It's nice and quiet
Shh shh
But soon again
Shh shh
Starts another big riot

You blow a fuse
Zing boom
The devil cuts loose
Zing boom
So what's the use
Wow bam
Of falling in love

It's oh so quiet
It's oh so still
You're all alone
And so peaceful until

You ring the bell
Bim bam
You shout and you yell
Hi ho ho
You broke the spell
Gee, this is swell you almost have a fit
This guy is "gorge" and I got hit
There's no mistake this is it

'Til it's over and then
It's nice and quiet
Shh shh
But soon again
Shh shh
Starts another big riot

You blow a fuse
Zing boom
The devil cuts loose
Zing boom
What's the use
Wow bam
Of falling in love

The sky caves in
The devil cuts loose
You blow blow blow blow your fuse
When you've fallen in love

Shh

It's such a 1940s/50s show tune, and that's because that's how it was written many, many years before Bjork covered it. Also, because she produced it true to the style in which is was intended and didn't try to turn it into a trip-hop song to be more in line with the rest of Post. I really like it, I'm not sure if it's my favorite song off of Post, but it's definitely one of the three best IMO.

Yeah I came back to this cuz I heard either the original or someone's elses in a commercial but they still had some of the screams. If the og had wild screams makes sense why she wanted to do it and do more awesome screams. I always thought was bjorks alone so I used think it was like very outstanding on post but now that I know it's still very cool to put on the album although it's fairly diverse anyway.

I remember going to AstroWorld in 1996 and this video was on tv while waiting in line for a ride

This is even better than the Betty Hutton version.

I think the version you might be hearing in the commercial is the original by Betty Hutton. Look it up if you haven't heard it.
