Katy Perry’s “Walking on Air,” Breaking Bad’s “Baby Blue” Climb Charts

It is not every day that a pop-rock tune from 1971 reaches the upper third of the iTunes Single Sales chart.

It is, of course, not every day that one of the best television dramas of all-time perfectly concludes its wrong.

Thanks to its fitting inclusion in the final sequence of Sunday’s “Breaking Bad” finale, Badfinger’s classic “Baby Blue” is marching up the iTunes sales charts. At press time, it had reached as high as twenty seventh with daily sales in the ballpark of songs like Paramore’s “Still Into You,” Britney Spears’ “Work Bitch” and Lorde’s “Team.”

More urgent, however, is the pace with which Katy Perry’s new release “Walking on Air” is ascending the charts. The song, a release from upcoming album “Prism” hit number twelve by press time and seems certain to move into the top ten by day’s end.

If that happens, Perry could end up with three songs in the top ten. Lead “Prism” single “Roar” has a firm grip on number two, while promotional release “Dark Horse” is in eighth place.
