When this challenge first came into my inbox, 2 immediate songs came to mind. Both were Bjork songs from the Matthew Barney soundtrack Drawing Restraint 9. Let me explain. When I first saw Matthew Barney’s Cremaster series, it inspired me and opened my creativity to a different level. I was obsessed and began creating my art films with a different sensibility. A year later when I saw Drawing Restraint 9, this art film had the same impact. I’m not sure if it was the memory of the Cremaster series coming through or another piece from Matthew Barney that I completely connected with or the songs that Bjork created for his film. They are awesome.
After I started listening to the soundtrack, I couldn’t pick one song. I had listened to the soundtrack so many times as a complete unit that to take one song and repeat it, I would miss the song that came before it and after it. SO, I decided to do a complete 180 degree turn. What song have I listened to a lot recently that makes me happy and lifts my mood? Here it is!
