According to Spotify, online streams of Bad Finger’s “Baby Blue” have increased by 9000% after the Breaking Bad finale. The song was played in the final minutes of the Breaking Bad finale “Felina”. The creator of Breaking Bad, Vince Gilligan stated that the song symbolized Walter White’s (the main character of the show) love for his creation, the blue crystal meth.
The song was originally released in 1971 as a single for the Brit rock band’s Straight Up album. It was heavily posted on SoundTracking the night of the finale, and is still one of the most popular songs today.
