One Great Rock Song Can Creep You Out A Little Bit When You’re Home Alone at Night

“Where Is the Line?” by Bjork

I have a humble suggestion for Darnell Brisco and the Won by Ones: You need to cover Bjork’s “Where Is the Line?” from her not-such-a-hit album, Medulla. When Medulla arrived in 2004, fans and reviewers did not know what to make of Bjork’s decision to make an acappella album. At best, people found the album to be an interesting study in weirdness, but not the kind of thing anyone would actually listen to. But we who grew up in the acappella music tradition (particularly we who worked next door to the horrible CD table at the Pepperdine Lectureship) know better.

“Where is the Line?” is scary and awesome and probably not all that religious, but if it will put the fear of God into those high school juniors attending youth rallies who are wondering if Pepperdine University is the academic choice for them.

  1. That video is sick! Crazy awesome song though.

    Now I must go close my eyes and listen to Arpeggi for the tenth time today. And maybe Good News for People Who Love To Get Crunk after that.

  2. Sick is the word for it, yes. And shame on Radiohead for cutting out our beloved American middle man for their new album. Only communists would eschew capitalism like this.

    I think WB1 should cover “Get Right Church!” That song is a hoot!

    If season 5 of the radio show doesn’t start soon, I’m going to hurt someone close to me. I’ve memorized every word of the episode “Mother Russia”. I need new material.

    Bjork makes me uncomfortable deep in my bones.

    Jasper, don’t! A new episode is coming soon I PROMISE…
