True Blood Season 2 Possible Title Song: Ep. 5 " Never Let Me Go"

This is exciting ! We now (might)know the titles of the first 5 episodes of True Blood for Season 2.
Now the one thing we know about True Blood is that the episode names come from the a song used in and that it is somehow significant to that episode.

Episode 2.01 - Nothing but the Blood
Episode 2.02 - Keep this Party Going
Episode 2.03 - Changed to Scratches from Scratch My Back
Episode 2.04 - Changed to Shake and Fingerpop from Let's Take a Trip Together

All we know about Season 2 spoilers, casting calls etc. can be found here
We know the amazing Gary Calamar puts great effort into musically curating True Blood !

Episode 2.05 - Never Let Me Go

Now, this is only my guess, I just research the various songs with the leaked title and come up with a song I think it might be.

The obvious choice here for the Episode 5 title song is probably the very famous Curtis Mayfield love song "Never Let Me Go" and I'll also include a video of it below too. I was digging around and I found another interesting song and it's from a crunk band and I thought it would be great to talk about crunk.

So another possibility for " Never Let Me Go " could be from the Family Force Five. Family Force 5 (often abbreviated FF5, formerly known as The Phamily and The Brothers) is a crunk rock band from Atlanta, Georgia.

The three leading members of the band are sons of Jerome Olds, a Christian artist from the late 1980s. Prior to the formation of Family Force 5, the brothers were also members of a "boy band" known as The Brothers.

I'm always looking for interesting southern connections for True Blood music and FFF is described as a crunk band. Crunk is a style of music which originated from southern hip hop and electronic dance music in the early 1990's.
Webster's Dictionary defines "crunk" as a "word of fluctuating meaning used during the 1990s in lyrics of the rap groups OutKast and Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz, a style of Southern rap music featuring repetitive chants and rapid dance rhythms."




OK, OK the song is probably really the lovely song below but this was fun...

Both are fitting. I really hope it's the Curtis Mayfield song. Great song for a Bill and Sookie.
