During the first half of the last season of Breaking Bad, I was watching this scene from the episode “Hazard Pay” and my first thought was, “what song is this???”
And as it turns out…it was this:
The Peddlers: On a Clear Day
From Three In a Cell (Epic, 1968)
I’m only slightly familiar with this British trio, mostly because of their awesome Suite London, which I wrote about back in 2007. But only recently, that was the only LP of theirs I ever owned. I slept on Three In a Cell and their marvelous cover of Burton Lane’s Broadway classic.
I’m sure the group never imagined their song would end up scoring an epic meth cook session but you gotta admit: it works perfectly in the scene. So dreamy.
