The Sugarcubes - Motorcrash

Artist: The Sugarcubes

Song: Motorcrash

Album: Life’s Too Good (1988)


video live

With strong songs built around
Bjork Gudmundsdottir's piercing, striking voice, this record lived up to all the advance hype. With songs like "Birthday" and "Motorcrash," this is the perfect introduction to the 'Cubes. (Allmusic)

In the videoclip there’re two Björk: one saves a woman in a car accident, the other runs on his bicycle…

Riding on my bicycle I saw a motorcrash,
A proper motorcrash and lots of spectators.
I rushed to the centre saw the injured parents,
Cuts on the children,
An awful motorcrash.
Dangerous terribly bloody motorcrash,
Destructive motorcrash.
Took the mother,
Sneaked with her secretly all the way to my home,
And nursed her gently put on her bandages,
Gave her milk and biscuits,
She sighed pleasantly after this awful motorcrash.
That girl on that bicycle showed great interest in
All the motorcrashes in the neighbourhood,
She look quite innocent,
But believe you me I know what innocence looks like and it wasn’t there,
After she got that bicycle.
Then we disguised ourselves,
Took a taxi to her home,
When her husband opened the door she introduced her-self,
He said "where have you been all this time?
