Junior Brown – Better Call Saul
If there’s a tv series that might start with much higher expectations than Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and with some sort of added skepticism — let’s be real: it’s obvious that AMC is in desperate need of establishing shows since Mad Men ends next year and The Walking Dead is only good for tv ratings purposes while lacking the awards Mad Men and Breaking Bad won, yet they have failed on that — it’s the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul. Just recently, AMC released a music video hyping the series and its main character who first appeared during Breaking Bad Season 2 and will be reprised once again by Bob Odenkirk. Watch it here below because the Youtube upload [MV] is region-restricted *sigh* thanks to AMC.
Showrunners Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan penned the lyrics for Better Call Saul, show composer Dave Porter did the music, and country veteran Junior Brown performs amidst some desert landscape and a large, inflated Statue2 of Liberty. Interestingly enough, the video works quite similarly to the Negro y Azul video performed by Los Cuates de Sinaloa, [MV] which told the story of Walter White/Heisenberg halfway through Season 2 and established who he was.
“Saul, Saul, you better call Saul / He’ll fight for your rights, when your back’s to the wall / He’ll stick it to the man, justice for all.”
I can’t deny that it’s pretty catchy and easy on the ears. But I found Negro y Azul to be much funnier.
Okay, AMC. I’m sold on watching Better Call Saul, which will premiere next February on AMC and already has two seasons guaranteed.
