So apparently there was some sort of pop cultural phenomenon that came to an end this past Sunday.
And this ragingly beautiful Badfinger classic figured in it prominnently.
This is actually my favorite song of theirs ever, but fuck you, Vince Gilligan -- from now on whenever I hear it I'll be thinking about crystal meth.
But I kid the great Breaking Bad auteur.
Apparently downloads of this song from iTunes and elsewhere have gone through the roof since the weekend, which is fine by me, of course; I just hope the royalty checks are going to the surviving members of the band -- and the families of the late Pete Ham and Tom Evans -- rather than some crooked manager.
I should add that a certain Shady Dame and I were out to dinner a few hours before the episode aired, and the restaurant was serving a special cocktail called The Heisenberg. I was hoping it involved Cristal for obvious reasons, but apparently not.
