New mini-feature about the great use of great songs to make a great scene even better.

Breaking Bad Series Bryan Cranston, Walter White, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Jesse Pinkman, Dean Norris, Hank, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Danny Trejo

 

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.

 

 

It also appeared in The Good Wife, when Grace is filming her tutor dancing on a train. And the Seven Psychopaths trailer.
