Back in ’91 Bjork was part of The Sugarcubes. The band had many great songs but Hit is by far a favorite! Hit was accompanied by a fantastic video which was often seen on MTV’s 120 Minutes and helped gain the band much popularity. The song is a little more ‘pop’ unlike some of their other singles such as Birthday and Motorcrash.
The video has great imagery of Bjork and members of the band referencing the theme of a ‘love that was not supposed to happen.’ You see the young artist looking beautiful and singing in a bed about her surprise of love, preparing us for the eccentric singers soon to come solo career. I love seeing Bjork playing with the dolls and bringing them together as if they are falling in love.
You can find Hit and other great songs from The Sugarcubes on The Great Crossover Potential.
