“Alarm Call” is a song recorded by Icelandic singer Björk for her third studio album Homogenic (1997). It was released as the fourth single from the album, peaking at number 33 in the UK.
The sped-up “radio version” of the song (which was also featured in the video) was used in the 1999 film The Mod Squad.
The song speaks of re-awakening through music and is rumoured to be about Michael Jackson as it was originally labelled “Jacko” on the Homogenic demo tape. Björk explained “I think that music has the power to change the things, and that’s what I wanted to show on Alarm Call”. It is the only single from Homogenic that was not included on Greatest Hits.
