5.0 out of 5 stars play dead -bjork September 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This quick-paced yet ballad-like song is intriguing and different in a time when pop, heavy metal, and rap seem to dominate the music scene. Bjork's powerful voice is an extreme relief when you can't take any more of the same old useless songs about shallow love and heartbreak that won't last a day. The lyrics are poetry, simply speaking, and Bjork conveys them with a clear purpose and interest. There are many different ways that you could interpret the words and her imaginative vocal movement throughout the song really helps the listener to understand her feeling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely! October 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you don't own the UK version of Debut (which comes with this song on it) you *must* buy this single! It's is a beautifull constructed song, the lyrics are amazing, plus the orchestral strings are just amazing. Go ahead and buy it, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely! February 22, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a great song, but the remixes of it are barely different at all from the original, so I'd best reccomend getting this on an import version of the full-length album "debut".

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning song!! June 7, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This song has got to be one of the most powerful songs I've ever heard. Listening to Bjork belting away sends chills up my spine. The strings are very lush next to the sexy low beat of the music. You gotta have this single!

Bjork's stratospheric vocals and the passionate yet haunting musicwhich accompanied it was anoverwhelming display of emotion and conviction. This song stands easily on its own but it takes on addiitionalsignificance when listened toat the end of the film "TheYoung Americans".
