Including the season finale closing tune – a sneak up from behind and command your attention version of the Blood, Sweat and Tears hit “And When I Die.” In trying to track down the tune, we came across this great post from KCRW DJ and True Blood Music Supervisor Gary Calamar explaining how he commissioned the band The Heavy to breathe some new life into the immortal song for the pivotal ending scene. The music is always the story within the story with the series and this might be one of their most lingering musical moments yet. It’s available on the Season Three Soundtrack and it feeds our cover tune fix. For True Blood junkies everywhere, here’s “And When I Die:”
