"Possibly Maybe" is a song by Björk, released as the fifth single from her 1995 album Post. It is a dark song reflecting on potential love with deep electronic tones and soft beats. Björk says it was "the first unhappy song I wrote... I felt ashamed writing a song that was not giving hope".
Interviewed for the DVD The Directors Label "The Work of Director: Stéphane Sednaoui" webpage, Björk's confirmed that the song is about the relationship with Stéphane Sednaoui who had previously directed her video for "Big Time Sensuality". Ironically or possibly as a culmination of the ideas of the song, Stéphane directed the 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.
There were three different single releases, two of which are a rarities in the music world in that the A-side is not the first track.
