Teardrop – Massive AttackSteve Ley
Teardrop is the UK based trip-hoppers most famous song to date. It featured as the second single from their critically acclaimed album, Mezzanine (1988).
This groove provides the backdrop to the ethereal tune, playing virtually unchanged throughout the song. The hi-hat is played quietly (p) while the heartbeat sounding bass drum and cross-stick (circled notehead) pattern is played at a medium volume (mf).
