Big Time Sensuality


Spent this morning doing laundry and researching Björk. After reading a few reviews of Vespertine, and listening to some of the previews, I really want to pick it up.
Even though I only own her latest album, Medulla, my fascination with Björk goes way back. The first song of hers I ever heard was in 1993: “Big Time Sensuality”, from her album from the same year, Debut:

i can sense it
something important
is about to happen
it’s coming up
it takes courage to enjoy it
the hardcore & the gentle
BIG TIME SENSUALITY
we just met
and i know i’m a bit too intimate
but something huge is coming up
and we’re both included
it takes courage to enjoy it
the hardcore & the gentle
BIG TIME SENSUALITY
i don’t know my future after this weekend
– and i don’t want to!
it takes courage to enjoy it
the hardcore & the gentle
BIG TIME SENSUALITY


You can imagine my delight when I discovered she set the video (Small | Medium) to the Fluke Magimix remix — the same version I heard at my first rave. Update, 2:43pm: In case the previous two links are going slowly, I’ve mirrored the medium version of B.T.S. here.
Sure, she’s a little offbeat, but I’m awestruck by her creativity. She obviously loves life and nature, but isn’t afraid of technology (at least, she makes good use of it on her website), and that’s thrilling and inspiring at the same time.
