Big Time Sensuality

Composed by Björk / Nellee Hooper

Song Review by

The third single off of her critically acclaimed album Debut, "Big Time Sensuality" was an aggressive, screechy dance number that had simple but passionate lyrics inspired by Björk's relationship with her working partner and co-producer, Nellee Hooper. Besides being released as a single, the recording was issued on two EPs, the first containing two more Elgar sisters songs, "Sidasta Eg" and "Glora," and the second featuring seven different remixes from Fluke, Justin Robinson, Dom T, and David Moralis. One of the Fluke versions was liked well enough by Björk that she ended up using it for the video. While not scraping the top of the charts, "Big Time Sensuality" was part of an album unusual enough to stand out among its fellow pop releases as a quirky and complex experiment that worked most of the time.
