Song of the Day: Bjork - Bachelorette

While I'm not a Bjork acolyte, she has a number of songs that completely blow me away. Today's song of the day, "Bachelorette," is one of them, but what truly takes the song to another level is the video - and how often can you say that?

It helps, of course, that the video is directed by Michel Gondry, director of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (one of my favorite movies). He brings the already surreal imagery in the lyrics to life, and though I'm not smart enough to understand what is going on in the video, it's a feast for the senses.

But as I mentioned, the song is fantastic on its own:

Here's the video. Is it easy to see the parallels between this and Eternal Sunshine?
