For those who didn't want Björk here. You can name what you think is the least prog song of all she has done (except for her 1977 album).

I love Bjork....but I don't think she necessarily deserves to be on here. Though she is progressive. And a big visionary in the 90s. 
It's funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you viddy them on the screen.

She's progressive, but she doesn't deserve to be here?  How exactly does that work?

She deserves to be here. I know it.

Uh......a lot of stuff. Practically all of Volta, Post, Debut, Medulla depending how you look at it. Haen't heard Vaspertine and Homogenic is the only album I know that actually supports her inclusion here in any way.

I contradict myself most of the time. To me, it's hard to imagine someone like Bjork being associated with a large number of the artists on here, is all.

You don't need to associate an artist with anyone else in here to grant an inclusion. Being progressive, after all, isn't about repeating a formula.

There's prog stuff in these albums.

How about the topic, you know, naming a song?

I'd say the obvious, Big Time Sensuality. You can use that in your protests against her.

I always considered It's Oh So Quiet to be her biggest "hit", even though it's a cover song. To me that shows her commercial side, i.e. anti-prog.

It's her biggest it! It's still not normal pop but it's not prog and I agree.

Progressive and prog are not the same thing?
 
In fact many artists are considered unworthy of this site BECAUSE they are so progressive. Because they don't fall into the "sounds like 70s prog" category. More than half of the artists included on this website are just imitations of the true progressive artists, they may be prog, but they aren't exactly progressive.

Bjork has totally disowned that song though. I personally like it, but I think she's a bit annoyed that her most popular song is both a cover and not typical of her sound at all.

Yeah, that was actually an answer phrased in the form of a question.
