Last night, “Breaking Bad” came to a close. Without going into additional detail, the song that played us out was “Baby Blue” by Badfinger.
It was a genius choice, as the 1971 earworm is now stuck in everyone’s heads.
We reached out to Spotify, where a representative confirmed that streams of “Baby Blue” are up 9000%.
The folks over at Spotify were kind enough to send over this chart, showing the Breaking Bad effect. This is the number of global streams of “Baby Blue.”
Spotify didn’t have the raw numbers for the left axis, but it’s still a hell of a chart.
It seems that the minute the airing ended at 10:15 p.m. last night, people cranked up Spotify to listen to it.
I, for one, starred it.
And after taking a brief respite to have a bit of sleep, people immediately started cranking away at it for the morning commute again today.
