In Her Own Utopian Words: Björk on people not getting the joke

Utopia by Björk is available @ iTunes.


“I’m happy that people are still listening to me after all these years, but sometimes I feel people misunderstand the lyrics. People miss the jokes. A lot of it is me taking the piss out of myself and being, what do you call it, self-deprecating…”


Björk – Utopia


The quote comes from the Miranda Sawyer article for The Guardian.
