The Deuce Theme Songs

Admittedly, I'm a sucker for anything created by David Simon. The Wire is my all-time favourite television show, ahead of Six Feet Under and The Sopranos. Another David Simon series is The Deuce which ran for three seasons. This post is about The Deuce's theme songs.

I love all three songs, and they perfectly suit the vibe of this under-appreciated HBO show.

Season One - "(Don't Worry) If There's a Hell Below, We're All Going to Go" by Curtis Mayfield

Season Two - "This Year's Girl" by Elvis Costello and Natalie Bergman

Season Three - "Dreaming" by Blondie

And a massive shout out to The Pretenders whose "Mystery Achievement" is used brilliantly by David Simon for a season two finale montage. Now this is a screen-enhanced jam!
