I hadn't heard this song before, but I like it! The language sounds like Hungarian to me. Do you know the name? Surpix radio had a playlist, didn't it?

I was asleep when this song was ripped. So have no playlist information at all unfortunately.
Thank you for your reply!

I never heard that song. Strange language, I don't recognize it.
But I really like the song. Very good voice & melody and great retro style of music.
I LOVE that. If someone could tell us who is it, I really want to know too !!!

It is a really catchy song! I've listened to it a hundred time, but I still don't understand anything about it. Razz I think I'm hearing something about Cairo in the first verse, and something about pyramids just after the first chorus. Is this helping? Very Happy

The song is sung in Icelandic, the song is called Arabadrengurinn (Arabian boy), and it's probably sung here by no-one else than Brjk herself. Bjrk has released it on her first album in 1977.

a var i Nturlestinni i Kairo
a sem g hitti arabadreng
sem sian aldrei r huga mr hverfur
g elska hann

Hann sagi sgur af falda snum
og sng um vatni vinjum og m
hann br upp myndum me tfrandi lnum
g elska hann

a var vor og sl
daginn eftir fr g a hitta hann
vi frum nir'a nl
vi urftum engan bl, aeins faldann

Hann fr og sndi mr pramda
rtt vi jaar Sahara sands
og aug'ans lystu vi steinana hvta
g elska hann

Nlarbkkum vi gengum og sungum
um lfsins glei, fegur og st
g fylltist anda r framandi tungum
g elska hann

a var vor og sl
fuglar sungu kr a g hitti hann
vi frum nir'a nl
vi urftum engan bl, aeins faldann

Hann kvaddi mig me trvotum augum
lestarstoinni daginn ann
er stin brann svo heitt mnum taugum
g vissi g si aldrei aftur hann

Mig dreymir oft um drenginn minn fra
og er lfi ljft nlg hans
hann hefur stkka, v rin au la
g elska hann

Hr upp slandi grt g leynum
og leita'a merkjum sem minna hann
g s hans andlit stokkum og steinum
g elska hann

This was an interesting find. I was a Bjrk fan at one time and have several of her albums, and couldn't imagine she had done something like this. But somehow I like this as much as any other Bjrk songs. Laughing There is a album cover video on Youtube:



I wonder where I could buy this album? Probably nowhere, as it must be quite rare.

This song is absolutely fabulous ! It's one of the best song I ever ever heard. Mega cute voice, fantastic melody and great disco music. How good !!!
I'm really surprised that it's sung by Bjrk because I really don't like her adult voice.

You can find other music from her 1st 1977 album on YouTube :

It took some connections, a few long shots and a lot of google. Cool Everything was easy once I learnt to spell some of the words! The lyrics are lovely too (I think the majority here understands English better):

THE ARABIAN BOY

It was in the nighttrain in Cairo
where I found an arabian boy
whom since then never left my thoughts
I love him

He told me stories from his dromedary
and sang of water in oasis and rivers
he drew me pictures with magical lines
I love him

There was spring and sun
the next day I left to look for him
we went down the Nile
we didn't need a car, just a dromedary

He went and showed me the pyramids
right by edge of Sahara sands
and his eyes lit up by the white stones
I love him

By the Nile's bank we walked and sang
about lifes joy, beauty and love
I felt inspired by other foreign tongues
I love him

There was spring and sun
birds sung in choir when i found him
we went down the Nile
we didn't need a car, just a dromedary

He left me with tears in his eyes
on the railway station that day
although love burned hot in my nerves
I knew I would never see him again

I often dream of my fair boy
and life is sweet when I'm close to him
he has grown, as the years have passed
I love him

Here back in Iceland I cried in lonliness
and searched for marks to remind me of him
I see his face in sticks and stones
I love him

YES, like Rakugaki, I am not a big fan of Bjork. I always thought she was interesting and could watch a video now and then by her, as I didn't hate her. Just not such a big fan. I however love this song she did as a child. Anyone know how old she was on this? Thanks to all for this discovery. As you may have noticed with a few other posts of mine, I like to find child singer vids of adult performers.

The album was released in 1977, and she is born in November 1965, so that most probably makes her 11 in the recording.
