So who ripped who off.... Imogene Heap or Bjork? Actually I kinda like this as I do some of Heap's stuff.

  
This song came out about five years before Imogen had released her first album, though I don't think there was any "ripping off" involved.
 
Not to mention Bjork was doing her thing with The Sugarcubes while Immy and I were still in grade school. Bjork is like the too cool older sister.

What do you mean by "Latin friends"; people who speak Latin or Latin-American people?  Either way, it doesn't seem probable that either group would readily use an English-language term such as "human warmth".

"I mean, the human race, we are a tribe, let's face it, and let's stop all this religious bullshit. I think everybody, or at least a lot of my friends, are just so exhausted with this whole self-importance of religious people. Just drop it. We're all fucking animals, so let's just make some universal tribal beat. We're pagan. Let's just march."

- from Pitchfork Interview, well after this song

But I get it. This is the marching music.

I would love to be her boyfriend; I would probably last three minutes  before she savaged me.

I didn't have these words to describe this pretty good track. I'm glad you did!

I went and bought this album once this track from the movie "The Young Americans" had been added to the track list. A couple of years later I saw her live in the roman ruins of Caesaria in Israel. No idea what she is banging on about, but this track maintains its bizarre sonic allure to this day. Thrilling.

Thanks, you are right of course.

I'm one of those people that has never got Bjork. I can understand her singing like a silly wee lassie when she first started, but she's still doing it. Loved Hellsongs's version of Paranoid, so I can appreciate gentle feminine music, but Bjork......why?

Like a lot of commentators on some of the more 'hippy' songs from the 60s and 70s like to remind us "you had to be there to really get it". Now Bjork  is not my cup of tea but this was SO different to what was out there at the time.
