Massive Attack's debut album, Blue Lines came out in April 1991, so you'll have to forgive me as I'm nearly 6 months behind on writing this post to mark its 25th anniversary.

They say imitation is the highest form of flattery.In music terms, that would apply quite aptly to the cover version. Massive Attack have certainly done a number of covers of other bands songs in their time, but as for this post I will be making a top 10 list of my favourite tunes other bands/artists have made out of Massive Attack tunes.
You may have heard of this little sporting event going on at the minute called the Olympics. I'm sure any Londoner would be able to fill you in on the whole thing, but I have heard one small story from it, that I thought would be nice to share with other Massive Attack fans.
This will be fairly oldish news to some, but forgive me as I'm still in a state of catch-up with my new blog and it would be remiss not to mention this little morsel. Hooverphonic have done a cover version of Massive Attack's Unfinished Sympathy and it really is rather lovely in my opinion.
Here's a very informative article from Uncut Magazine published in February 2010 about the genesis of that most seminal of Massive Attack tracks - Unfinished Sympathy. And yes, it's my favourite Massive Attack track of all time (on most days anyway). At least that's not as cliche as saying it's Teardrop.
