“Black Velvet” by Alannah Myles

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please


Okay, I’m a little confused. In a clip mostly notable for how much blue denim it features, it appears that a country singer is prophesying the coming of some sort of Gothic cult to her beloved Dixie…

Which presumably means that Alannah Myles predicted “True Blood” a good decade or so before Charlaine Harris published the first one.
