True Blood, True Love

True Blood meets TWT

True Blood meets TWT

On our record Fire Songs we went out on a limb and recorded a cover of The Cure's "Just Like Heaven".  The tune had been on a top 100 of all time that year and I couldn't help but be taken back to the time it was released (1987's record Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me) and how 20 years later it was still such a relevant, well crafted song!!!  Our TWT version came easily (we already knew all the words:), and it settled into our country tinged slope like it was written for that tempo.

In 2008, TV show True Blood hit the scene and music supervisor Gary Calamar curated a soundtrack for the show that was just as steamy!  When we got word he wanted to use our version on the show, the choice to go "out on a limb" didn't feel so crazy anymore.  Now 6 years later we still love singing that song and thanks to Gary there are alot of folks who first heard of The Watson Twins and our cover of "Just Like Heaven" on True Blood.

Last week in an interview with The Huffington Post Gary chatted about his favorite "soundtrack moments" in the show and our track made that list.  Check out this fantastic interview here!

Thanks Gary!!
