Trivia: Björk
  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: Björk never said "I am a grateful grapefruit!". The real quote is above.
  • Black Sheep Hit - "It's Oh So Quiet", a jazz/big band song from an electronic/alternative artist.
  • Creator Backlash - Her most popular and most successful song is the aforementioned "It's Oh So Quiet". Björk got angry that her most popular song is a cover, and now she rarely performs it.
  • Creator Breakdown - "So Broken" was written after an incident in which an insane stalker tried to send her a mail bomb, documenting the whole process on tape before recording his own suicide.
  • Creator Couple: With artist Matthew Barney.
  • Dye Hard - Her natural hair color is dark brown, not black.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!
    • Medúlla features the big name beatboxers Rahzel, Shlomo and Dokaka (it was essentially his big break). Mike Patton appeared on a few songs, most recognizably singing the baritone backing vocals in "Where Is The Line".
    • The atmospheric haze in the background of "Náttúra" is Thom Yorke.
  • One of Us: Homogenic, Vespertine, Medúlla, and Biophilia are all named after scientific terms and phenomena.
  • What Could Have Been: She was originally approached to perform "Gollum's Song" for The Lord of the Rings, but declined, citing her pregnancy. Fellow icelander Emilíana Torrini performed it instead.
