I Wanna Do Bad Things With You and Other Music From the HBO Series True Blood (EP)


Artist: Various
RRP: £4.99
Available 09 November 2010

True Blood follows Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), a waitress in rural Louisiana and her life as she falls in love with the vampire Bill Compton. The series, created by Alan Ball (Six Feet Under) is based on Charlaine Harris’s Southern Vampire Mystery books. It premiered in 2008 and became a fan favourite. This MP3 EP includes covers of the show's main theme (vocal and instrumental versions) as well as three other instrumental tracks from the show.

I was a little confused as to why this release was entitled I Wanna Do Bad Things With You when the original single is actually called 'Bad Things'. I was also unsure why Jace Everett's original version had been replaced with an inferior version by Katie Campbell. It's probably because this isn't an official True Blood release, but again it's not clear whether this is the case or not. Those expecting to own the original will be disappointed, even though Campbell's version is still enjoyable.

As for the other three tracks on this EP, I'm not sure whether these are also covers of the originals, but I'm guessing they're not the original tracks. To be honest though, it's not important as they are instrumental tracks and I'm guessing most fans of the show won't really notice, or care.

As it stands this is a good release, just a little misleading.
