Vid Break! "Teardrop" by Massive Attack


"Teardrop" was an accomplished and accessible single from trip-hoppers Massive Attack before House, M.D. blew it into the weekly repeated consciousness of the entire world. With a slow, punchy beat and lovely vocals from Elizabeth Fraser of the band Cocteau Twins, it's undeniable how effective this track is on the psyche. Moreso is the video that accompanies it, matching a vibe more suited for something in The Matrix. It's that kind of creepy message video that's also intriguing enough that you can't look away. Featuring a talking fetus in a womb, it somehow manages to do the song justice and pulls us into the ambience that Massive Attack create. Perhaps this baby's had it up to here with video's that make too much sense.
