In honor of the Second Weekly Eye Candy Wednesday and the premiere of the so-far fantastic True Blood third season, I have chosen Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard, who portrays Viking vampire Eric Northman on HBO’s True Blood.
This is one of my personal favorite photos of Skarsgard in his Viking garb (Ha. Gard. Garb.), and though different from the book, the show’s interpretation of Eric’s creation story if well-done.
And while I write this, my newest iTunes playlist, “Vamprocking,” is doing just that. Yes, I am so obsessed with certain vampire movies and shows that I have created a playlist just for those soundtracks. Oh, and Glee, of course.
This is a time-saving initiative for me, because otherwise I’d be searching for “Glee” and “Vampire Diaries” nonstop.
In honor of my ridiculously geeky playlist, I share below the top-played song in each category:
- Twilight Soundtrack: “Flightless Bird, American Mouth” by Iron & Wine, http://tiny.cc/g7yhu
- New Moon Soundtrack “No Sound but the Wind” by The Editors, http://tiny.cc/hyflv
- True Blood Soundtrack, “Lullaby” by the Dixie Chicks, http://tiny.cc/g8f8x
- Vampire Diaries Soundtrack “Cut” by Plumb, http://tiny.cc/7jpep
- Glee soundtrack: And a tie, believe it or not, by two songs in the same episode: “Halo/Walking on Sunshine” http://tiny.cc/7phw8 and “It’s My Life/Confessions.”http://tiny.cc/ggyfl
And a bonus track (and closely following my No. 1 True Blood song in sheer plays), “Sancto Erico,” http://tiny.cc/ru6bs a song about a Viking king named Eric that Nathan Barr put to music for the show. This little ditty plays during the infamous season one bathroom scene.
