I Miss You CD 1
1997: Elektra 194TP7CD
I Miss You is a fun song (with a matchingly wacky video) but perhaps isnt improved by these further iterations. The Dobie mix suffers from a rap break and is therefore just about impossible for me to listen to; the Darren Emerson ones better and brings 90s dancefloor memories to mind but doesnt really go anywhere (it is a bit prance-y, with shades of RuPauls Supermodel Of the World album).
Karvel however is worth the price of the CD. Even though its sung in Icelandic and doesnt even have the lyrics printed here, its both catchy and groovy. Upon sniffing out the lyrics (and translation) online I found that its also as nearly-accessible-but-not-quite as Björks lyrics usually are, so no surprise there, just more to mull over. But the production/mix is yummy and her vocal is quite stirring and subtly strong.
