I know there are a lot of Bjork fans who frequent this forum, so I thought I'd give a link and also make a request.

I've heard a slew of Bjork covers....about 1/20 or them are decent. Do any of you have GOOD Bjork covers to suggest? Any bad covers to rag on? Heck, while we're at it...know of any good covers Bjork has done?

Copy Right? posted another cover of Hyperballad (which I believe to be overrated anyway...). I don't know if it's any good - I haven't listend first. Either way, here's the link: http://copycommaright.blogspot.com/

Looking forward to reading your replies.

sure, death cab for cutie did some covers, i think the yeah yeah yeahs,
may i suggest you try this link

http://hype.non-standard.net/search/bjork/1/

what you do is find the song/cover you like, then click on "read post" look at it/post then download by right clicking on the direct link.

keep in mind that these are also blogs whos links to download/listen the song will expire after a while. The older the post, the less likely the link will work.

Greg Dulli (he of Afghan Whigs infamy) covered Hyperballad with his band the Twilight Singers, to good effect as far as I'm concerned - but then I love almost everything he does...

The song can be found on The Twilight Singers' covers album "She Loves You" which includes covers of artists as diverse as Nina Simone, Fleetwood Mac, Hope Sandoval, Martina Topley-Bird and Mary J Blige.

Highly recommended!

seems you can not only spend ages to collect all björk songs and b-sides, but put the same effort in finding all the covers made...

trex...yeah. She and Daniel have quite the catalog. Though, i think Daniel gets bonus points for his anal record-keeping.

Berlin. Thanks. Glad you enjoy our bickering.
