Badfinger’s ‘Baby Blue’ Skyrockets to Fame Following Breaking Bad Season Finale
The story of a chemistry teacher from Albuquerque turned methamphetamine empire king pin came to a conclusion on Sunday as the series finale of Breaking Bad left [most] fans satisfied. The episode wrapped up with a song that had an eerily perfect fit to the story and created a a major buzz for the band Badfinger, whose 1971 hit ‘Baby Blue’ capped off the story of Walter White.
Not only did the show draw record viewers, but according to NME.com, global streams of Badfinger’s ‘Baby Blue’ have increased by 9000% since.
I’ve loved all the different and eclectic music that has been used throughout the entire series. Almost every episode I had my phone out using an app to detect a song. After the third or fourth episode, I found this awesome Breaking Bad Wiki that lists all of the music used in the entire series.
Guess I got what I deserved
Kept you waiting there too long my love.
All that time without a word
Didn’t know you’d think that I’d forget
Or I’d regret the special love I have for you –
My Baby Blue.
