Björk – I Love To Love

1st June 2022 · 1970s, 1976, Disco, Music

TRIGGER WARNING: If you think you’re immune to cheap sentimentality this may make you reconsider. Eleven-year-old Björk Guðmundsdóttir’s debut is so cute that even the hardest heart will melt.

This is her first recorded performance at a school recital in Iceland in 1976.

The Tina Charles disco song I Love To Love had just topped the charts that year.

To my ears she sounds note perfect and her English accent is flawless, even though it’s not her native tongue.

The teachers were so impressed with that voice that they sent the recording to the national radio station.

They loved it, the audience loved it… and we all know what happened when she grew up.
