  • Lyrics
  • Björk (quoted in Record Collector magazine on Björk.com): "A lot of my songs - including Big Time Sensuality - are about my friends, not my lovers. It's not erotic or sensual even if it may sound like that. As you know, you create pretty deep, full-on love relationships with friends. A lot of it is also about myself. I can be a coward a lot of the time and there comes a moment when I write a song when I get quite brave. It's a lot about me dealing with myself rather than attacking other people."
  • Until her 2007 song "Earth Intruders" peaked at #84, this was Björk's biggest hit in the US. >>
