Title of episode has been changed to Scratches from Scratch my back.

We now know the titles of the first 3 episodes of True Blood for season 2.

The one thing we know about True Blood is that the episode names come from the a song used in and significant to that episode.

Episode 2.02 - Keep this Party Going

Episode Three : Baby Scratch My Back

Sometimes called electric swamp blues written by James Moore, aka Slim Harpo. Crowley, Louisiana, October 1965 Excello Records.

James Moore AKA Slim Harpo Born: January 11, 1924 in the parish of West Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As a figure in the post-war rural blues, his music is often described as Louisiana swamp blues. As a teenager, his parents died, leaving him to raise one brother and three young sisters. In January of 1966, Slim Harpo returned to the charts with "Baby Scratch My Back" which hit No. 1 on the R&B chart on February 26, 1966, and remained No. 1 for two weeks. The song also peeked at Number 16 for 8 weeks in March on the Billboard Hot 100.



If you prefer a little Texas connection here is KM Williams and Washboard Jackson with a guitar / washboard version.



Lyrics:

Aww, I'm itchy,and I don't know where to scratch
Come here baby, scratch my back I know you can do it, so baby get to it

Aww,you're workin with it now
You got me feelin' so good

ummmmm...

This little girl sho' knows how'd scratch
Now, you're doin' the chicken scratch
Aww, its lookin' good baby
Just gettin' scratch That's what I'm talkin' bout

Scratch my back? Like, what happened to Sookie when she met the Maenad? This could be a clue of what happens in this episode...

Am I the only clueless person out there to NOT know the episodes were named after songs? Too funny, I am laughing at myself.
