Björk is the only studio album by Icelandic singer Björk Guðmundsdóttir as a child singer, released on 18 December 1977 by Fálkinn. In 1976, Björk appeared on Icelandic radio singing "I Love to Love" through the music school she attended, which led her to a record deal and the release, with the help of stepfather Sævar, of her first solo album in 1977.

Bachelorette" is a song by Björk, released as the second single from her 1997 album Homogenic. Released on 8 December 1997, the song was originally written for a film by Bernardo Bertolucci, but the project was withdrawn. The lyrics for "Bachelorette" were written by Sjón, a friend and collaborator of the singer. The music video was noted for its surrealistic art direction, leading to a win at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards.

Jóga" is a song by Björk, released as the first single from her 1997 album Homogenic. An electronic song, "Jóga" fuses these elements with baroque and classical styles. The track's sound was partially inspired by Icelandic music, containing what have been described as "volcanic beats". Lyrically, the piece is an ode to Björk's native land and her best friend, while containing subtexts relating to emergency. Not the National Anthem but certain classic Icelandic songs - very romantic, very proud. Björk interviewed by David Hemingway.

The Best Mixes from the Album - Debut.

Some of the more inspired Björk remix work ended up on this single, thanks to the names involved. Mark Bell handled the initial mixes well enough, pumping up the orchestration on the opening "Optimism" mix and playing around with beats on the "Zip" and "Blue" takes. Things start getting really good, though, when the Wu-Tang Clan's RZA steps in with his own mix; rather than transforming the song into one of his deep, dark hip-hop movers, he keeps the strings and makes the new beats a bit lighter than usual
