View Discography Entry. Teardrop began life as a simple harpsichord riff plucked by Neil Davidige one April day in Mushroom who was the first in the band to hear this solitary riff, took an immediate liking to it and he and Neil Davidige set to further work on it adding sombre piano chords and beats. However, both 3D and Daddy G who had both now heard the early demo of the song at this stage, had another vocalist entirely in mind, Elizabeth Fraser of the Cocteau Twins. In the two against one split, eventually Mushroom lost out even though not before sending the backing track for Teardrop to Madonna who was apparently in love with the track and was disappointed when the rest of Massive Attack informed her that they already had a vocalist for the song. This is the music which is usually heard in all broadcast versions in all regions outside of North America. To further complicate the matter, the DVD releases of House outside of North America have begun, from the second season of the show onwards to include the Teardrop theme music intact in the opening, as it was always meant to be. She did however put in a memorable appearance at the Royal Albert Hall gig in June Her vocals on Teardrop for this tour, were done instead by Debbie Miller.
The Teardrop Rapist began his spree in with the attack of a Hispanic teenage girl. The Teardrop Rapist began his crime spree in with the attack of a Hispanic girl. Dewdrop we thought you were; teardrop you say you are: I cannot think you are either. Every teardrop was one girlish feeling and emotion gone, one bright fancy, one tender hope vanished. On his bone-encased chest a bright drop of water formed, like a dewdrop or a teardrop , but big as a man's head. Daily have we dashed the teardrop of disappointment from our common eye! The bulk of this sphere was always well within the outer walls of the teardrop , and thus protected from radiation.
