Marty Robbins · “El Paso”
Breaking Bad finale episode’s title, “Felina”, is a reference to the 1959 song “El Paso” by Western music artist Marty Robbins. The song concerns an unnamed cowboy who falls in love with a woman named Feleena, gets shot by his enemies, and dies in her arms. The song plays in Walt’s stolen car in New Hampshire, and is later hummed by Walt as he assembles the M60.
"I started from scratch. I made another, then another. And by the end of the semester, by box number five, I had built this thing. You should’ve seen it, it was insane. I mean, I built it out of Peruvian walnut with inlaid zebrawood. It was fitted with pegs, no screws. I sanded it for days until it was smooth as glass. And then I rubbed all the wood with tung oil, so it was rich and dark. It even smelled good. You know, you put your nose in it and breathed in… it was perfect.”
