5 O'Clock Shadow 5-28-13: Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

I have friends who are very, very into True Blood, the popular HBO Vampire Series. The Fourth volume of music came out today with music from My Morning Jacket, The Heavy, The Flaming Lips, Warpaint, and this gem from Eric Burdon and Jenny Lewis, taking on his old seminal hit “Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.” Unsurprisingly, it’s a dark and moodier take than the Simone/Animals version. Jenny Lewis sounds great on this track.

One thing I think we can agree on: Vampires are misunderstood.
