How ‘The Sinner’ Turned One Song Into a Terrifying Murder Clue and the Show’s Secret Weapon
Distill the guilt, pain and trauma of a horrific crime into song form and you’ll probably get something close to “Huggin & Kissin.”

Over the course of seven episodes, the percussive, persistent electronic onslaught of Big Black Delta’s catchiest, eeriest song is one of the secret weapons of USA’s summer hit show “The Sinner.” Though the song has been a part of the show from the beginning, most notably as the soundtrack to the beach stabbing that kicks off the show’s story, Wednesday night’s “Part VII” finally revealed the song’s true connection to the plot.
