Breaking bad-meth
So how about that Breaking Bad finale last night?

I was reading in Spin about one of the songs used…a sorta forgotten gem from the British group Badfinger.

One of the final scenes involved a song called “Baby Blue.”

It was a nice song. Fit the vibe.  The band themselves have a tragic story.  I think that back story adds to the gravity of the final episode of Breaking Bad.

OK… so “Baby Blue,” Blue Sky meth, I get it….but in Spin they were talking about using other blue-ish type songs on the soundtrack, like Tommy James and The Shondells‘ “Crystal Blue Persuasion.”  Now there is a 1969 song I can get behind!

It didn’t take long to find this beauty cover by Morcheeba.

and here’s the original for you. YOUTUBE

Woke up and did some push-ups and sit-ups this morning… yessh, that is hard work.  Reminds me of bootcamp, which, come to think of it, I should try again!

Yesterday, the internets were all aflutter over the Spin Magazine’s Nirvana tribute record, Newermind.

So on over I headed to Spin’s Facebook page… liked, then really liked this jam.

Charles Bradley – “Stay Away”

Download MP3 >> 10 Stay Away

Its a pretty dramatic take on the Nirvana grunge classic.  I really enjoyed the James Brown-esque interpretation.

Charles Bradley’s story is bizarre and crazy too… if the internet is to be believed.  You should read about his life path. The dude did a James Brown lounge show… of course he did.

Neat, there is also a Jessica Lea Mayfield, Amanda Palmer and Surfer Blood cover on there.  Track one, side one… Meat Puppets.

Go with yourself.
