New mini-feature about the great use of great songs to make a great scene even better.
Song: “Rocket Scientist” by Swedish electro group The Teddybears.
Show: Breaking Bad
Scene: Jessie, Badger and Skinny Pete are spending all of Walter’s savings on strippers, champagne and drugs instead of an RV for cooking meth. They’ve never partied like this before, and don’t really know whento stop, as the damming polaroids show.
Why it’s awesome: it’s simply a great party song that makes the on-screen antics seem even more decadent. A mix of fat and fuzzy bass & guitar riff, with crisp and clean electronic drums, synthesized vocals and lots of pop-hook lyrics that jump straight into your head. Short of Party Hard by Andrew WK, it’s a song I’d like to be used to soundtrack my boozy antics.
