True Blood Theme Song: “Bad Things” by Jace Everett

I got lotsa hits on my blog about HBO’s vampire soap opera “True Blood”and from the searches y’all were doin’ to get there it’s clear you’re beguiled by Blood’s theme song —  “Bad Things” by Jace Everett.  The song is G-damn juicy and so far it’s the best thing about “True Blood.”  On his myspace page, Everett lists existentialism & American Spirit Cigarettes among his influences.  (He’s also an Obama fan. Good man.)  “Bad Things” is a great fit with “True Blood.”  The song has a gritty southern sound and a mysterious, naughty vibe.  Very Vampire in the deep south looking to lunch on a telepathic virgin!  Chomp chomp. 

I wanna do bad things with you

When you came in the air went out.
And every shadow filled up with doubt.
I don’t know who you think you are,
But before the night is through,
I wanna do bad things with you.

I’m the kind to sit up in his room.
Heart sick an’ eyes filled up with blue.
I don’t know what you’ve done to me,
But I know this much is true:
I wanna do bad things with you.

When you came in the air went out.
And all those shadows there are filled up with doubt.
I don’t know who you think you are,
But before the night is through,
I wanna do bad things with you.
I wanna do real bad things with you.
Ow, ooh.

I don’t know what you’ve done to me,
But I know this much is true:
I wanna do bad things with you.
I wanna do real bad things with you.

I love’s me a trickster fox so this trailer with decomposing fox is some sly bewitching… the trailer and the theme by Everett are the best of HBO’s “True Blood” but I’m expecting more with Six Feet Under’s Alan Ball at the helm.  The man also brought us the masterpiece “American Beauty” so there’s gotta be more to “True Blood” than bad accents and rapish goaded gnashing of man-fangs.  I do doubt that Southerners consider it polite to masturbate on your neighbors porch.  Why, that’s just manners!

If only the show were more like the trailer….

    I totally thought that the theme song was done by Chris Isaak. It is a great song – I really do like it but it really is a rip off of Chris Issak’s trademark sound. Especially his song baby did a bad bad thing.

  8. i couldn’t agree more with your statement that the song is “so far the best thing about “true blood””:)
