Since “My Body is a Cage” set off my latest House kick, how could I neglect “Teardrop” by Massive Attack? The first time I ever saw an episode of House and the theme started, I just got a huge smile. I was visiting my parents and my mom asked what the smile was for and I said, “I know this song”. I actually have a very wide-ranging taste in music and my mom likes for me to play new things for her. I told her that I had played this for her years before but she didn’t remember it although she did end up remembering another track from this record called “Angel”.
This is the full version of the song (well - there are probably 15 bazillion longer versions but you know what I mean). My music discovery path was pretty bizarre during that period but I came across so much great stuff!
I still smile a little when I hear Massive Attack in the background of shows, commercials, etc., but I smiled a lot when I started watching “Luther” a year or two ago and heard one of their songs as a theme again.
Yeah, I know. I’ve been gone a while and now that I’m back, I’m in a mood and now I’m posting music from youtube that isn’t even a friggin’ video (which no one would watch anyway because our attention spans are shorter than our screen scroll times…)
But for the 2-3 active people that still see this blog I haven’t killed yet, just take a chance and open it in a new tab for a moment and keep scrolling.
This is Peter Gabriel’s version of “My Body is a Cage” which I will forever associate to of course “House”. Holy crap if that wasn’t a moment where this song was used (and another parallel between his character and Sherlock Holmes - but that’s a different train of thought…) Anyway, I really like this song. Enjoy.
I geek out, occasionally reveal some personal info and try to keep the rants to a minimum. I mostly try to share some things I think are interesting, inspiring or funny.
This page, like me, is a work in progress.
