Fun with parallels

30 Aug 2014


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.

Play count: 302

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.

Thought the premiere episode was a great update and homage to the original but this at the end with his tribute to Carl and his invitation to continue the journey was flat out amazing.

Inspired by Jeff Briant’s piece titled "The vents are opening".
This piece was totally in the backlog for a few weeks. I forgot about it because it took 3 days to render with 8192 Cycles and 1024 Diffuse bounces, but by then I was on to other things.
