08_ Alarm Call
Bjork / Homogenic Lyrics


Wo-oo-ooh hoh!
I have walked this earth
And watched people

It doesn't scare me at all
I can be sincere
And say I like them

It doesn't scare me at all
An-bithelafter-mer
An-yeah-hoh-oh
An-be-ja-a-a-ha-ha

You can't say no to hope
Can't say no to happiness

I want to go on a mountain-top
With a radio and good batteries
And play a joyous tune and
Free the human race
From suffering

It doesn't scare me at all
I'm no fucking Buddhist
But this is enlightenment

The less room you give me
The more space I've got

It doesn't scare me at all
An-chamel-after
An-yeah-hoh-oh
An-be-ja-a-a-ha-ha

You can't say no to hope
Can't say no to happiness

It doesn't scare me at all
I want to be on a mountain-top
With a radio and good batteries
And play a joyous tune and
Free the
A-human race
From suffering

It doesn't scare me at all
This is an alarm-call
So wake-up, wake-up now
Woo-oo-ooh!
Today has never happened
And it doesn't frighten me

It doesn't scare me at all
An-bithel-after
An-yeah-hoh-oh
An-che-ja-a-a-ha-ha

You can't say no to hope
You can't say no to happiness
Wo-oo-ooh!

It doesn't scare me at all, wo-oo-ooh!

I love Bjork's creative journey....but a huge part of me would love to see her go full pop.
Just imagine what her version of that would sound like?
Tho this song is a good indication of what that would sound like....I love how effortlessly cool and uplifting it is.
Pure ear candy and hooks....but filtered through the avant garde creative weirdness of Bjork. Just love this song...has such a rapturous vigorous positivity to it.

But unlike most pop songs trying to pull that off...I actually believe Bjork on this song. There's nothing fake or empty about it.

I love hearing Bjork write music inspired by minerals...or teeth covered in coral dust...or quantum entanglement.....but I also love the rare moments where she goes full on joyful POP. But when she does, like this song...or Big Time Sensuality(especially the remix)...it's just blissful.

I'm ranting now lol...it's all too easy to gush over her music.
In short.... This is my go-to song for a dose of genuine happiness. :)

I love this version so much better than the music video version.

Alrune La Brune

Yes, one of the times where the album version bests the video version indeed.

emomu

i think the mv version was just a radio edit for clubs

toastedrat

Yeah this version will always be superior but I will be honest that French Dub is actually kinda decent

Jose Camargo

One of the most expressive vocalists of all time!

R. P.

This is a fact.

JONATHAN GRAY

Truly one of the greatest songs I've ever heard, and I've heard almost 10,000 songs in my life thus far.

Björk was, is, and will always be way ahead of her time. 👏👏👏

I wasn't crazy about Homogenic for a while; I was still obsessed with Post and Debut. But I kept coming back to this song and now I can appreciate the whole album as a classic electronica!!
