You know it, the soundtrack in Better Call Saul is always full of curiosities and discoveries. And what happened in Episode 11 of Season 6, called “Breaking Bad,” made no difference: Saul is singing karaoke in a club, at the beginning of his new criminal activity. It’s an old song that not everybody knows: we will discover more about it in this article.
The karaoke song: what does Saul sing in Better Call Saul Season 6 Episode 11?
The song Saul sings in Episode 11 of Better Call Saul Season 6, in the karaoke club, is Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl) by Looking Glass. You can find it in streaming below.
Brandy is the best commercial success ever made by the band, and it peaked at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in 1972. Looking Glass was a soft-rock band of the 70s, and this was their first hit. They released two albums in total before changing their name to Fallen Angels.
Brandy: inside the lyrics and their meaning
Brandy is a girl who works as a bartender in a harbor town, where many sailors go. The song explains that Brandy is secretly in love with one of the sailors that sometimes come into that bar. He fascinated her with his stories and gave her many gifts, but he was always honest: he could not be with her because his life was on the sea. That’s the chorus of the song:
She hears him say, “Brandy, you’re a fine girl
(You’re a fine girl)
What a good wife you would be
(Such a fine girl)
But my life, my love and my lady is the sea
It is, yes, it is”
The song is full of poetic lines that leave the listener melancholic. The lyrics describe her walking on the streets after the bar is closed, thinking about the man she loves, who’s not there with her.
At night when the bars close down
Brandy walks through a silent town
And loves a man who’s not around
She still can hear him say…
Brandy is a love song about two individuals who cannot be in a relationship. But emotions can live inside us even when our life doesn’t allow us to match them.
