Ask me anything
November 10, 2012: Imaginary Girl by David Lynch.
I just rewatched Mulholland Drive last night, man, that one is a doozy. Here’s some Lynch to set the mood for this cold fall day.
August 1, 2012: “In Heaven” by David Lynch and Peter Ivers.
In honor of the Eraserhead soundtrack reissue this week— David Lynch’ s 1977 feature length debut— here’s “In Heaven,” written and performed by Peter Ivers and sung by the “Lady in the Radiator,” Laurel Near, in the film. The song has been covered by various artists including Tuxedomoon, The Pixies, Bauhaus, and Jay Reatard.
June 24, 2012: Rockin’ Back Inside My Heart by Julee Cruise.
Holy crap, it’s been so long since my last post, I apologize! I’ve been super busy the past two weeks—oh, who am I kidding? I’ve been holed up in my apartment watching Twin Peaks. Speaking of David Lynch’s cult classic television show, Julee Cruise is a dream pop singer best known for her songs featured on Twin Peaks, including the theme song. “Rockin’ Back Inside My Heart” was featured prominently in the long-anticipated Twin Peaks episode in which the killer of Laura Palmer was finally revealed.
April 2, 2012: Ghost of Love by David Lynch.
Acclaimed filmmaker and musician David Lynch recently released his debut solo album and has been causing a stir with the video for his new single, “Crazy Clown Time,” but my favorite Lynch (musical) release is probably his 2007 single Ghost of Love, which features an equally good b-side, “Imaginary Girl,” that I highly recommend checking out as well. Not familiar with Lynch’s work? For god’s sake, go rent Twin Peaks immediately!
