Track Description
Available in:
"Possibly Maybe" is a song by Björk, released as the fifth single from her 1995 album Post. It is a song with deep electronic tones and soft beats that reflects on potential love.

There were three different single releases, this was the first Björk single to be released in three parts. Two of these three parts are rarities in the music world in that their A-side is not the first track. The first CD came with a slipcase that could also house the other two.

The song details different stages of a breakup. Björk says it was "the first unhappy song I wrote... I felt ashamed writing a song that was not giving hope". The melancholic piece was dedicated to her broken relationship with Stéphane Sednaoui, who, curiously, also directed the video. Rumours have persisted that Björk recorded the song in the nude, although this has not been publicly commented on. Björk was sued by British electronic musician Scanner for the uncleared sample of telephones ringing (from his album Mass Observation) at the start of the track. The situation caused her record label, One Little Indian, to contemplate the idea of destroying all current copies of Post in the shops, and of the remixing, remastering and reprinting of a new version of the album that included a version of "Possibly Maybe" which did not feature the sample.

Music Video:
The video shows Björk in a variety of different rooms in an apartment. She is primarily shown in a large, stylish bedroom with modern décor. These scenes are intercut with shots in ultra-violet lighting (which subsequently causes everything to appear in day-glo colours). She is also shown in three other rooms: submerged in the bathtub of a bathroom; an Asian-themed room; and a room full of stereo equipment. These scenes are intercut with an angelic image of her dressed all in white, floating out of a blue sky with the sun behind her. The majority of objects appearing in the video were Björk's own. The music video was directed by Stéphane Sednaoui; curiously, the song actually talks about him. Short interviews with both Stéphane and Björk discussing the video are included on the Stéphane Sednaoui Directors Label DVD. A short making-of for the single's B-side, "Vísur Vatnsenda-Rósu", was recorded as part of the corresponding album Chansons des mers froides by Hector Zazou.
