"Triumph of a Heart" was the third single from Bjork's album 'Medulla'. The video was directed by Spike Jonze. In the video, Bjork tires of her boyfriend, played by a real cat, and storms out of the house for a night out on the town. She goes to a pub where the soundtrack stops and the locals (including Dokaka) join her for a special performance of the song recorded for the video. She eventually returns back home and rekindles her affections for her cat-boyfriend. During the filming of the video, as she was running down the street, she accidentally stumbled and slid down the street with her face on the ground. The incident, as well as the scrapes on her face, were kept in the video.

"Triumph Of A Heart"

The nerves are sending shimmering signals
All through my fingers
The veins support
Blood that gushes impulsively towards
Is the triumph of a heart that gives all
That gives all
The triumph of a heart that gives all
That gives all
The stubborn trunks of these legs of mine
Serve as pathways for my favourite fuel
Heading upwards towards my kidneys
(That celebrate)
The triumph of a heart that gives all

Smooth soft red velvety lungs
Are pushing a network of oxygen joyfully
Through a nose, through a mouth
But all enjoys, which brings us to
The triumph of a heart that gives all
That gives all.
