Fast Forward is the ABC Network sci-fi drama where everybody in the world passes out for two minutes and seventeen seconds. Those that don’t crash in planes, drown, die in car accidents, or otherwise get offfed get a peek six months in the future during their pass out.
“It’s Oh So Quiet” is the Bjork re-working of the hollywood musical star Betty Hutton chestnut “Blow A Fuse” from 1995. A pre-rock type dance number.
At the start of episode four of Flash Forward, the drama returns to the two minutes of pass out: nothing moves, everybody has collapsed where they stand, and Bjork sings “It’s, oh, so quiet shh,shh, It’s, oh, so still shh,shh. You’re all alone shh, shh And so peaceful until” and then when the world wakes up the song continues with Bjork’s song about the emotional chaos of love only on the chaos side “You fall in love, Zing boom, The sky up above, Zing boom, Is caving in, Wow bam”.
It is an inspired use of a song in a dramatic setting, exactly echoing the disaters on screen. You can catch the entire episode four of Fast Forward on hulu.com
