Human Behaviour

“Human Behaviour” is a song by Icelandic recording artist Björk from her album Debut (1993). The song was released in June 1993. The song was produced by Björk’s longtime collaborator Nellee Hooper. “Human Behaviour” is an alternative song with lyrics reflecting upon human nature and emotion from a non-human animal’s point of view. The song and music video were inspired by British broadcaster and naturalist David Attenborough.[1]

Critics praised “Human Behaviour” and deemed it a highlight of the album. The song was an underground smash, which peaked at number two on the dance charts[2] and reached number 36 in the UK Singles Chart.

The music video was directed by Michel Gondry and is the first time the two collaborated. The video, as the song, is a story about the relation between humans and animals, from the animal point of view.[1]
