How do you make a really, really happy song - specifically called 'Happy', for crying out loud - sound like a source of unparalleled misery?
Mix it with a song called 'Teardrops', of course. Louisa Rose Allen aka Foxes hit up Radio 1's Live Lounge studio to perform a mixture of both 'Happy' and Massive Attack's 'Teardrops', offering a juxtaposition to rival all others. At one point it does get a bit more jolly, shifting out of a minor key. Apart from that, get ready to sob.
