Neko Case and Nick Cave, two of the most charismatic and distinctive singers in rock, teamed up to record a groovy, sultry cover of the Zombies' tune "She's Not There" for True Blood. The song played over the end credits of the season premiere – also titled "She's Not There" – in which telepathic waitress/vampire magnet Sookie Stackhouse returned from a year-long visit with the faeries. Though it's great to hear Case and Cave side by side on the same track, it's even better that their collaboration – which you can stream now – is so perfectly attuned to the campy, sexy spirit of the show.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
