The chewy thoughts of a queer Christian

All is Full of Love

I first encountered this song on a list of the greatest music videos of all time. I remember reading somewhere that Bjork wrote this song because she felt that people had too narrow an idea of what love is. Love is not just a feeling between to people  who are ‘in love’. She is singing about a wider, broader, deeper force.

Twist your head around
It’s all around you…

You just ain’t receiving
Your phone is off the hook
Your doors are shut

This is a call for us to open our eyes, twist our heads around, pick up the phone. Love, the most precious thing, the one thing all people need, what people live and die for… is all around you! All is full of love!

The closing of the song is a reiteration of that idea, she shouts and sings the same line over and over again, rejoicing in the glory of that thought:

All is full of love!
All is full of love!
