SHREM'S LIST OBSESSION: Top 10 Favourite Björk Rarities

Björk has a solid spot among the artists I admire the most as you might have noticed by now... I was aware of The Sugarcubes but it wasn't until the moment I heard "Come To Me" from "Debut" for the very first time when I fell in love with her so deeply and obsessively. I've been a passionate devotee, an admirer and a completist collector of her solo material ever since. Through all of her vibrant and ever so versatile career so far, Miss Guðmundsdóttir treated us fans, to numerous fantastic hidden gems and treasures in the shape of generously distributed b-sides, bewildering collaborations and genre-redefining remixes. Before I come up with a top 10 of Björk mixes here's a juicy selection for my very own most beloved of her rarities:
