It Takes Courage to Enjoy It

Big Time Sensuality
MTV Unplugged 1994

This is my favorite Björk song. I don’t know, it just never gets old to me. I always find some new curiosity nestled in her little voice bouncing like lightning in a clear landscape. There is a stark helpless humanity to her performances. I like how she chirps and hums and isn’t afraid to growl. She always sounds like she’s singing in the shower. I love that about her music.

Look at her little yellow shift, showy eyeshadow, bare feet, the way she slouches and stomps around. I never, ever, ever get tired of watching her be. Freedom is sensuality, big time.
