Best Covers: Björk “It’s oh so quiet”

  • This is a remake of a 1948 song by Betty Hutton that was written by Hans Lang and Bert Reisfeld. The original is titled “Blow A Fuse.”
    This became Björk‘s biggest hit in the UK. It led to the Icelander’s subsequent single releases “Hyperballad” and “Possibly Maybe” also reaching the UK Top 20. Björk later virtually disowned the song by not including it on her 2002 greatest hits album. It is thought that Björk was disappointed that her most popular song is an unusual cover done in a style totally different to anything else she has recorded.
