I am currently obsessed with Showtime’s ‘Californication‘. One of the best written, most beautifully acted, and funniest TV series in recent memory and, of course, with one of the most memorable characters in writer Hank Moody.
I’ve been binge watching the entire series over the last week (currently at Season 4, Episode 10), and not only have I been sitting open-mouthed at the acting and the writing, but also some of the stellar rock music that was chosen for the soundtrack throughout the show’s seven seasons.
Music like alternative rock band Cracker’s ‘Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out’, which appeared in ‘Californication’ Season 4, and which is my Repeat Rotation Video today, as it’s a song I can definitely relate to.
If you haven’t heard it before, or if you heard it on ‘Californication‘ and loved it, watch Cracker’s official video for ‘Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out’ below and remember the amazing Hank Moody (played by the equally phenomenal David Duchovny).
A man who, with the season 7 series finale, has sadly now disappeared from our TV screens. The man who, as much as you thought he was the world’s most gigantic loser, you loved him anyway.
And, of course, if you like ‘Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out‘, you really should listen to Cracker’s ‘In The Land of Milk and Honey’.
After all, it’s Cracker, who have been amazing for decades, and this whole album is superb.
