"Birthday" is an almost impossibly beautiful song, emotive and bewitching, it's hard to explain the fathomless depths of emotion this reaches; wistful and joyful in turn, I can barely suppress tears reaching my eyes whenever I play it. Songs are rarely "out of this world" even if it is a descriptive term used quite regularly, but "Birthday" is undoubtedly otherworldly.

Quite possibly the most orgasmic song ever made, Björk's voice resonates pure unadulterated emotion that is matched by no other. birthday takes you on a euphoric journey into a cool grassy field on a lazy summers day. as you lay there melting into the earth, you observe fluffy clouds of total bliss which you take in with the most humongous inhalations imaginable -you hold in the lungfuls of joy as long as you can, wishing the moment would never end. most of the time you exhale and fall back into reality, but every so often you're able to hold that feeling inside of yourself and share it with the one you love;)
