"Teardrop" by Massive Attack - Fantastic Song, Amazing Video!

Song Video Duration: 5 minutes - "Teardrop" by Massive Attack appeared on their 1998 album Mezzanine. It was released as a single on 27 April 1998. The song became another UK hit for the group, peaking at number 10 on the UK Singles Chart. The song features vocals by Elizabeth Fraser of the Cocteau Twins.

In the United States, the song is best known for its use as the theme song of the medical television series House. The instrumental portions of the song at the beginning and the end which feature a bass drum beat reminiscent of a heartbeat are used in the opening theme.

The song's music video featured a plastic foetus in the womb, lip-synching the song. It was directed by Walter Stern.[1] The single peaked at #16 in Australia.[2] It placed number 22 in the Triple J Hottest 100 of All Time in 2009, and number 23 in the Triple J Hottest 100 of 1998, the year of its release.

A Trip to the Moon by Georges Méliès - The first Sci-Fi movie ever made!

"A Trip to the Moon (French: Voyage dans la Lune)[a] is a 1902 French silent film directed by Georges Méliès. It was named one of the 100 greatest films of the 20th century by The Village Voice, ranking at #84, and in 2002 it became the first work designated as a UNESCO World Heritage film. Inspired by a wide variety of sources, it follows a group of astronomers who travel to the moon in a cannon-propelled spaceship, explore the moon's surface, escape from an underground group of Selenites (lunar inhabitants), and return in a splashdown to Earth with a captive Selenite in tow.

The film was released by Méliès's Star Film Company and is numbered 399--411 in its catalogues. Its total length is about 260 meters (roughly 845 feet) of film, which, at Méliès's preferred projection speed of 12 to 14 frames per second, is about 17 minutes. An internationally popular success at the time of its release, it is the best-known of the hundreds of films made by Méliès, and the moment in which the spaceship lands in the Moon's eye remains one of the most iconic images in the history of cinema.
