I recently did a Season 2 Spoiler show for my Blogtalk radio show, where we looked at what we might know about the upcoming episode by examining the title song for that episode.
I can't tell you how many emails I received from folks saying they felt so stupid for not realizing that the True Blood episodes were named for songs. It's OK but I thought it might be a good idea to look back at the song, the artist and the lyrics for each of last season's episode title songs.
So let's look back to Episode Three: Season One: Mine aired : 9/21/2008
Artist: Bing Crosby & Judy Garland
Album: Bing - His Legendary Years 1931-1957
Scene: Sookie sneaks up on Bill and they kiss passionately ( dream sequence)
After nine titles from 1931 (which were acquired by Decca later on), the program concentrates on the 1934-1957 period and, in addition to the expected hits, all aspects of his career are covered. Despite a few Dixieland-flavored selections,had largely abandoned jazz by the late '30s, but his phrasing (which was influenced by ) and appealing voice should be of interest to jazz listeners. His ballads grew in stature in later years, while the up-tempo performances tended to be less memorable novelties. Although it should be augmented by collections that focus on his recordings of the '20s and early '30s, this is the definitive set. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

Mine, love is mine,
Whether it rain or storm or shine.
Mine, you are mine;
Never another valentine.
And I am yours;
Tell me that I'm yours;
Show me that smile my heart adores.
Mine, more than divine –
To know that love like yours is mine!
You can listen to a few minutes of the song here
This is not 'Mine' but it's Crosby and Garland singing another song together from the same album so you can hear their voices together.
