E’ It’s oh so quiet, terzo singolo tratto dall’album Post (1995) di Bjork, per l’occasione cantata da Roberta Bonanno, la canzone che la Toyota ha scelto per fare da colonna sonora alla campagna pubblicitaria della Nuova Yaris 4.

Si tratta di una cover della canzone di Betty Hutton Blow a Fuse, a sua volta cover di Und jetzt ist es still, brano del 1948 eseguito da Harry Winter e scritto da Hans Lang ed Erich Meder.

Il testo di It’s Oh So Quiet

Shhhh, Shhhh
It’s, oh, so quiet
It’s, oh, so still
You’re all alone
And so peaceful until

You fall in love
Zing boom
The sky up above
Zing boom
Is caving in
Wow bam
You’ve never been so nuts about a guy
You wanna laugh you wanna cry
You cross your heart and hope to die
‘Til it’s over and then

Shhh, Shhh
It’s nice and quiet
Shhh, Shhh
But soon again
Shhh, Shhh
Starts another big riot

You blow a fuse, zing boom
The devil cuts loose, zing boom
So what’s the use, wow bam
Of falling in love

It’s, oh, so quiet
It’s, oh, so still
You’re all alone
And so peaceful until…

You ring the bell, bim bam
You shout and you yell, hi ho ho
You broke the spell
Gee, this is swell you almost have a fit
This guy is “gorge” and I got hit
There’s no mistake this is it

‘Til it’s over and then
It’s nice and quiet
Shhh, Shhh
But soon again
Shhh, Shhh
Starts another big riot

You blow a fuse
Zing boom
The devil cuts loose
Zing boom
What’s the use
Wow bam
Of falling in love

The sky caves in
The devil cuts loose
You blow blow blow blow blow your fuse
When you’ve fallen in love
