Thoughts on Breaking Bad (the last song)

9 Oct



Tonight I watched the last one. Boy, was it a gem! Welcome to the goldmine! And who sung that last classic song? I’d heard it before. Now let me just try a little something that all you wiki-heads with sweaty iphones forgot some years ago–let me: recall.

Was it The Raspberries? No, somehow that doesn’t seem right. Definitely a power-pop classic band. Hmmmm. Getting an itchy smartphone-trigger finger, aren’t we? Don’t give up on me just yet. Hmmm. Dwight Twilley? Perhaps. Seems I’m getting warmer. Or there was that faux power-pop band from the early 90s. What were they called again? Hmmmm. Nope. Completely stuck. (EDIT: wait…wait a second…Teenage…um…Grand Prix?(no no, that definitely was not a band!))

While I did appreciate the Marty Robbins ref. and the oh so heavenly irony of playing him in a snowy car (he was a Texan, wasn’t he? (go on, you Wiki-heads!)), I truly enjoyed Walter’s…I’ll say…transformation during the last few episodes. It made me feel my time invested was validated and worthwhile.

Goodbye Walt. Goodbye Jesse.

(re-edit: Wait, I think I finally got it: The Groovie Ghoulies! Go on you wiki-heads! Okay, no, scratch that: The Flamin’ Groovies…and if I got that right, I honestly didn’t look it up. So don’t go quoting me in your research paper, y’hear?)
