Every Friday I will draw your attention to a track that makes me forget my worries and gives me goosebumps. This is not a track produced or mixed by me! It is a track that gives you an idea of what DJ B.F.A. likes and what you can expect of me.
This time it is: Massive Attack with a track called “Teardrop“. Not a dance beat or pumping rhythm but a sensitive and mesmerizing melody combined with a dark synthesizer and the fragile voice of Elizabeth Frazer. It brings shivers down my spine…how about you?
“Teardrop” was released as a single on 27 April 1998. It is the second single from their third album, Mezzanine. The song became another UK hit for the group, peaking at number 10 on the UK Singles Chart. Vocals are by Elizabeth Fraser of the Cocteau Twins.
The song, especially the instrumental portions at the beginning and the end, has been used in numerous TV programmes and movies. The bass drum beat, reminiscent of a heartbeat, samples the Les McCann song “Sometimes I Cry” and was used in the opening theme of the U.S. medical television series House. It also featured as incident music in a 2001 episode of Coronation Street when Sarah Platt is chased and then again at the end. (Source: Wikipedia)
