Sons of Anarchy using the entire "Come Healing"

Postby BlizzardofIce » Wed Sep 11, 2013 11:37 am

Yesterdays season premiere of Sons of Anarchy concludes with playing the entire Come Healing.
The show often use music to end the episodes, with only music playing, and the story playing out without sound in the screen.

As far as I remember it is the first time they use an LC-original.
Previously they have used a cover of Bird on the wire by Katey Sagal.

(Katey Sagal plays one of the main characters in the show)

some very good cover versions on that show, check them out on youtube.

Wonderful exposure for the song. There was a real flurry of tweets about it when the episode aired tonight. This makes me happy because I feel the song deserves to be heard as widely as possible.

My gosh! I never knew Katy Sagal could sing this well. Thank you for the link BlizzardOfIce!

Sadly, I missed that premier of SOA. Maybe they'll repeat it. I just might get hooked on this show because of their choice of music. Last show that had a great opening 'Cohenesque type of voice' song, that I was hooked on was the 'Sopranos'.

I just watched the last minutes of the show to hear the song. Wow that was powerful! I have no idea what the show is about but it looks really heavy.
The images were very intense and heavy but the sound of Leonard's voice with Hattie and Charley Webb were so healing to say the least.
I will have to watch the whole episode if I can bear it to see what this is all about but the song with the visuals was worth a peek if anyone else can get it.

WOW WOW WOW! Thank you BlizzardofIce. I did manage to find and record most of that opening episode of SOA. Can't wait to get a moment to watch it.

We just saw this episode last night and the song worked really well with the storyline. Always great to hear Leonard no matter the venue/vehicle! Todd
