“Love Will Tear Us Apart” [Joy Division karaoke]

According to Liz Louche over at the TMT News Department, Björk performed some duets with “environmentalist/reporter/entertainer” Ómar Ragnarsson at an Icelandic karaoke marathon this week. What she didn’t tell you (because she didn’t know) was that Björk also performed a solo karaoke version of Joy Division’s cover of “Love Will Tear Us Apart”!! Check it out above. (Thanks to Jared for the tip.)
