Song of the Day #2012

Song of the Day: Better Call Saul (“Shared Smoke”) [YouTube link] features the music of Dave Porter—the man whose compositions we started with on New Year’s Day. He provided the original scoring for the entire BB-EC-BCS universe. This track is featured in Season 6, Episode 13 (“Saul Gone”) of BCS, which first aired on August 15, 2022. It is heard in the closing scenes between Jimmy “Saul Goodman” McGill and Kim Wexler [YouTube link]. There are so many takeaways from this last episode and these final scenes—not the least of which is creator Vince Gilligan’s sense of justice, individual responsibility and the moral imperative of facing the consequences of one’s actions. Yet, one of the lingering, most poignant aspects of these scenes is how they project the complicated but loving relationship¬† between Jimmy and Kim, a key to the success of BCS and to the final moments of the BB franchise. On the occasion of the Fifteenth Anniversary of the beginning of this grand franchise, all I can say is: “It’s all good, man!” [YouTube link].
