Music plays a tremendous role in AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” One need look no further than the opening flashback of “Alone,” which aired March 9th, for its cathartic power.
Lee Dewyze’s “Blackbird Song,” is all viewers hear as Bob stumbles through his desolate path.
The scene is infinitely more painful the with lyrics “Mouths are dry, river runs/Hands are tied, preacher’s son/ Pack your things, leave somehow” penetrating Bob’s solitude.
The haunting beauty of “Blackbird” sent many viewers to YouTube and other popular sites, so they could listen to it again.
