Teardrop by Newton Faulkner cover of Massive Attack

Newton Faulkner has ginger hair which he chooses to have formed into dreadlocks. All the more power to him but I'd burn my hair if it was ginger. This is his acoustic cover of Teardrop which was released by Massive Attack in 1998. Enjoy!

Flight of the Conchords Cover

If you are not aware of the Flight of the Conchords you have been missing out. They are the shizz. This cover sums them up amazingly. Fun fact; there are no plans to make a 3rd season of Flight of the Conchords, this makes me very sad. :(

Peace out!
