Top 25 Singers, #13 - Bjork

#13 - Bjork

When you think of Bjork, do you automatically think of 'It's Oh So Quiet' because it's the only song of hers that you know? Or do you flash to the awful, awful swan dress she wore to the Academy Awards? If you do, let's see what we can do about that... right now. You might find it odd to see Bjork on a list of the top singers, especially if you think of her as a more experimental, alternative artist. Well, it's because of her experimental nature, especially in terms of vocals that earns her a place on the countdown. What other artist can you think of that constructed an album almost entirely on human vocals? Bjork did it on the incredible Medulla. That alone isn't enough to warrant a place, but throughout her career Bjork has pushed more boundaries than practically every other popular artist with her voice, constantly adapting, changing and creating new methods and styles. THAT is more than enough to get her on the Top 25 Singers of All Time. If you only have time to listen to one song, go with 'Hyperballad' above (and watch the whole thing!). P.S. what would we do without Jools Holland?
