Song of the Day #1992

Song of the Day: Breaking Bad (“Crystal Blue Persuasion”), words and music by Eddie Gray, Mike Vale, and Tommy James, was released in 1969 by Tommy James and the Shondells as part of their sixth studio album, “Crimson & Clover“. The song arose from James’s budding interest in religion. As in yesterday’s musical highlight, also featured in Season 5, Episode 8 (“Gliding Over All”), this song provided one of the most famous “Crystal Blue Meth” montages of the series, one later parodied by The Simpsons [YouTube links].
