One of the things that makes them stand out is their soundtracks and interestingly, both shows use as theme songs tunes penned and performed by a guy called Jace Everett. Nice coincidence.
I really knew nothing about the guy until I heard ‘Bad Things’, the True Blood theme, but he does some great stuff. I mean, that opening line from ‘Bad Things’ that I’ve used as the title to this post is good enough to keep most writers happy for quite a long time. The fact that it fits the show so perfectly–and I mean, fang-meet-neck perfectly–is just an added bonus.
Below the fold I’ve popped up clips of the opening credits of both shows as well as a live performance of Everett doing ‘Bad Things’ all the way through.
