The backdrop for the HBO series True Blood (Based on Charlaine Harris’ The Southern Vampire Mysteries) is a fictional Louisiana bayou town. Jace Everett’s “Bad Things” sets a sinister tone with a mid-tempo rockabilly swagger slithering under Everett’s sultry baritone. Lee Dorsey’s 1966 hit “Give It Up” fuses psychedelic sitar with the Meters’ unmistakable New Orleans funk as produced by Allen Toussaint, but the soundtrack wears Toussaint’s eerie and slow-burning “From a Whisper to a Scream” like a well- tailored glove. The Watson Twins contribute to the spooky vibe with an ethereally twangy take on the Cure’s “Just Like Heaven,” and it's very cool to hear the Flying Burrito Brothers’ “Christine’s Tune (Devil In Disguise)” in the context of a backwoods vampiress. Little Big Town’s “Bones” and John Doe’s “The Golden State” are two standouts – the former sounding like a hillbilly Fleetwood Mac and the latter a gripping country rock duet with Kathleen Edwards.
HBO's True Blood
The soundtrack for True Blood is a great slice of Bon Temp pie and represents this phenomenal show well. My top picks are the opening credits theme Bad Things, Lake Charles, Swampblood and Bones. My only complaint is that the soundtrack does not include any of those great instrumentals that appear in the show. I would love to have that violin piece that plays during intimate scenes such as at the beginning of episode 7 in season 1.
This is the absolute best, just like the Six Feet Under soundtracs. How could one expect anything less from a David Ball series. He is a true genius - and so is the person who is in charge of the music!!! Can't wait for another True Blood cd to come out!
Why do you have to buy the whole album just to get a few songs?
