it's oh so quiet

Claude Théberge's Nuit de décembre
it's oh so quiet
it's oh so still
you're all alone
and so peaceful until ...
you fall in love (Björk - It's Oh So Quiet, 1995)
waking up this morning was difficult, after four Christmas Eve masses - 16h, 18h, 20h, 22h.  so before the day begins - it's oh so quiet - i pour myself a cup of coffee (à la ABp Fulton Sheen).  beautiful!  then, of course, it is Christmas, so i look forward in spreading the Good News once again!  this year, the Year of Faith, fall in love again (or, for the first time) with God in Our Lord Jesus Christ.  He will change everything.  Merry Noël, Joyeux Christmas!!!

and, the video:

"Zing boom
The sky up above
Zing boom
Is caving in
Wow bam
you've never been so nuts about a guy
You wanna laugh you wanna cry
You cross your heart and hope to die 
Til it's over and then
Its nice and quiet
But soon again
Starts a nother big riot!! 
You blow a fuse
Zing boom
the devil cut s loose
Zing boom
So what's the use
Wow bam
Of falling in love 
Its oh so quiet
Its oh so still
You're all alone
And so peaceful until ... 
You ring the bell
Bim ban
You shout and you yell
Hi ho ho
You broke the spell
Gee, this is swell you almost have a fit
This guy is "gorge" and I got hit
There's no mistake this is it
Til it's over and then ... 
Its nice and quiet
But soon again
Starts another big riot!! 
You blow a fuse
zing boom
The devil cuts loose
Zing boom
What's the use
Wow bam
Of falling in love
The sky caves in
The devil cuts loose
You blow blow blow blow blow your fuse
When You've fallen in love
Ssssshhhhhhhh ... "
genuis!  peace.
