Breaking Badfinger

I just finished watching the series conclusion of Breaking Bad. The final song played was Baby Blue by Badfinger, a top hit from 1972 and one of my favorites. At a time when kids named their cars, I named my second car, my second VW bus, Baby Blue.

As the crystal meth Walter White made was a trademark blue, Baby Blue was a fitting song. Actually it is fitting in many ways, on many levels.

Breaking Bad is destined to be a cult classic.

Baby Blue was a cult classic in the 1970s.

 

Wikipedia has a good discussion of it, including acknowledgement of it’s appearance in Breaking Bad (who updates Wikipedia so fast?)

Badfinger recorded on the Apple label, the Beatles label well before Steve Jobs created the other Apple. In fact there is a lot of history on this as well.
