    Recognized the tune, as Walt lay dying, Baby Blue with signature opening line "guess I got what I deserved". Downloaded it and learned it the next day. Typical Badfinger faire. Get an email from the guitarist from cover band, The Old Johnsons, that he wants to learn the tune. It's like number 5 on iTunes.

    Anybody else swept up? Gonna be a pop tune for months.... Me, I wanted to add Sex on Fire...all two chords of it.

    My cover band is on hiatus right now but Baby Blue is an awesome tune. Glad it's getting exposure to a new generation even if it took a TV show to do it.

    We've been playing it for years in my 3 piece band. Always goes over great, especially if you can nail all the harmonies.

    Did it really spoil the series? There are a lot of other characters involved, and no one spoiled how they all die.

    And the OP didnt even tell you how or why Walt dies.

    Still, I could understand. Some fellow bass player who's only just heard of the greatness that is BB and has only began watching the series stumbles upon this thread while browsing and reads a spoiler like that. It doesn't really matter why or how, it's just a bummer to read that. I wouldn't want to be that guy, but that's just because I was crazy about BB. :bag:

    If someone is just starting the series, its up to them to avoid such spoilers.
    Though, being that BB just wrapped up last Sunday, a grace period of maybe a week should be enacted on spoiling the ending.

    However, if any was watching this show and didnt already know that Walt was going to die, well...

    I knew Walt was going to die in the very first episode.

    The fact that they said he was terminal sort of clued me in.

    Unless you've been hiding in a cave in Afghanistan, it is pretty hard to avoid the "news" about a popular TV series finales. Sorry if I disturbed your wa. I will carry this kharma....phew.

    Nonetheless doesn't sound like a rush towards this song....

    How about "Blurred Lines" or "Sex on Fire"? No spoilers there..just stupid, but popular songs.

    Never watched Breaking Bad but I do know the song. I like Bad Finger but I think the song is over played.

    I'd never heard the song, not a watcher of the show either. My singer brought it in this week as a "this could be a fun and current cover to mix in" and... meh. Not my thing.

    This board is international. In some countries we're not even at the last season yet.

    Seriously, if it's too much trouble to add a "spoiler alert"... Highly inconsiderate.
  16. Though I agree with the sentiment behind this post, knowing as you do that other countries are ahead of you and openly discussing the series, you would be wise to avoid threads and other on-line discussions that are even remotely related to Breaking Bad.

    Man, that was a great tune when it came out back in the 70's and still sounds fresh.
    I'm showing my age though :(

    Man, I hope no one dies in Walking Dead....
  19. FWIW, the title reads "How Many Cover bands Are Adding Baby Blue -..." on the main forum screen in my browser. No mention of Breaking Bad. This post was a spoiler for me but it's no biggie, I'll continue playing catch up on Netflix.

  20. I did. Until I read your thread.
