Album: Walking Dead season 7 (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • The Collapsable Hearts Club is a duo comprising vocalist/violinist Petra Haden and songwriter/producer Jim Bianco. This song additionally features Brad Gordon playing all the horns.
  • Bianco told The Independent this song was inspired by Frank Sinatra and is about "those rare moments in life when you're holding the winning card."
  • This song was played throughout The Walking Dead episode The Cell, where it was used as a torture tactic to prevent Daryl (Norman Reedus) from sleeping. Jim Bianco told The Independent he wasn't sure how the show's producers came across the song. "I think the show used it brilliantly; framing such an upbeat song as a torture [device] is a work of genius by the music supervisor," he added.
