While I crawl into the unknown
Cover me
I'm going hunting for mysteries
Cover me

I'm going to prove the impossible really exists
This is really dangerous
Cover me
But worth all the effort
Cover me

I'm going to prove the impossible really exists

    This remix of this song on Telegram is haunting.

    Bjork's songs are spiritual, in a sense, and I am glad she too believes there are mysteries to be explored.

    Because of it's spokyness I think she is referring to contacting the ancestors. It seems to be as if she is very spiritual and may be into magick and shamanism (since she refers to voudoo in earh intruders in making the world a better place) and whenever u go to speak to the Gods/Anscestors or spirits you need a shield of protection and its is a dangerous task. She also could jus tbe referring to everyday life dealing with doubter and unbelievers, whenever dealign with those low frequency type of thinkers...its always dangerous!

    This is my favorite Björk song because it reminds me of myself. I'm going to prove the impossible really exists whether you'll believe me or not! I will go hunting for mysteries whether you like it or not! It will be worth all of the effort...

    Oops I confused the remix of Headphones with this song. Sorry. :-P

    The cave version of this song on the Family Tree Box set is kinda spooky though. Famil Tree was the first Bjork CD I actually bought. I love it.

    Björk's method of album making can be "dangerous," but it's worth it.

    My Interpretation

    The meaning of this works on a few levels. Going hunting into the unknown of our psyches, it can be dangerous, but with the right spirit, and help from others sometimes, it's worth it. I wouldn't like to presume Bjorks inspiration for it.

    The Plaid remix of this song on the Hyperballad EP is one of my fave ever songs, and takes Bjorks original masterpiece to a much deeper and darker level.

    It reminds me of being in the stark elemental landscape of Iceland. Go hunting for mysteries up there and you will find danger and it will be worth it, just hope the cover you get is not snow or volcanic ash like it was nearly with me!

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
