Bjork & David Arnold – Play Dead [1993]

It took me a LONG LONG time to finally *get* Bjork. I slanted her for a fair old while but going back to Debut, damn what was I thinking. This track is one of the stand outs from that album and what a stand out it is. The minute you hear her vocal kick in, the hairs on the back of your neck are tingling and its not a patch on what comes next. What a VOICE, smooth as hell and so powerful when given the room. Which is exactly what David Arnold did with this track, using the orchestral score to supplement the vocals only. Amazing.
