Massive Attack

Another song to add to the list of forgotten songs of the 90s.  This one called Teardrop from Massive Attack off the Mezzanine album was released in 1998.  The video and lyrics as well as the sound are thought provoking and a little disquieting and totally worthy of being remembered.  Even today, the song is mostly forgotten.  You’ll probably NEVER hear it on the radio but it’s worth listening to.

“Love, love is a verb
Love is a doing word
Fearless on my breath
Gentle impulsion
Shakes me, makes me lighter
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath
Night, night of matter
Black flowers blossom
Fearless on my breath
Black flowers blossom
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my
Water is my eye
Most faithful mirror
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Of a confession
Fearless on my breath
Most faithful mirror
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath
It’s tumbling down
It’s tumbling down”

 

Post Edit.  Maybe you would hear it on the radio.  I was looking up the video and saw that Aurora did a cover of it.  Interesting.

  1. Nice, i love this song! Oh yeah, I’ve played it a few times over the years then been asked what is that song more than once? It’s an under rated track and it should most definitely be more well known plus I do known of one other cover by indie folk guy José González, you might enjoy it?
