I really appreciate it when TV shows take special care to have excellent soundtracks. True Blood is a great example, and this cover of the Zombies’ classic 60s track is made even more down and dirty than the original thanks to Neko Case and Nick Cave. I love the way this track works as a duet, too; Case’s vocals really evoke the original, while Cave’s growl takes it in an awesomely different direction (and makes it a perfect accompaniment for a show about sexy vampires and werewolves).
You can read about the process of putting the track together over on the KCRW blog — DJ Gary Calamar is the music director for the show, and has some interesting things to say about various artists considered for the track.
