GNARLS BARKLEY - Who's Gonna Save My Soul
I have never been a great lover of American series, it is all that Hollywood razz. Even barmaids look like film starlets. Give me the Sweeney or the Minder any time. There you get proper British Barmaids, gals that have been round the block a few times.
Saying that there have been exceptions, you can not fault The Sopranos or Sargent Bilko.
Flycasual asked if I ever watch Breaking Bad as he heard it was pretty good. The IMDB rating was sensational, a whopping 9.6 a score, unheard of before. I thought I would watch a couple of episodes to check what the fuss is about.
Am I glad I did. It is brilliant, great actors, great characters, brilliant humour. If you have ever watched Pulp Fiction and remember the shock moments (how can you forget then) I will tell you this, there are many such moments in this grand little gem.
Simply, if you don't know, it is the story of a guy who finds he is dying of cancer. He is a Chemist turned School teacher who decides to 'cook' ice (methamphetamine) and try and make enough money to support his family when he goes.(gets dead)
Oh! boy! his life just get more complicated and involved after each episode. I am completely hooked just like an Ice junkie. I have just finished series 1 and will be watching series 2 tonight. I must have my fix.
These two great tracks are both from series 1. I particularly like the Gnarls Barkley track when I heard it. I am also a maniac for Natalie Merchant's voice.
