Back for more punishment.

2017-08-31: Under the sycamore trees

This one has a "Strange Fruit" vibe to it. And a great vocal.

2017-08-30: but you can't get the feeling back

My brother likes NIN. Me, I can appreciate what Trent has tried to do over time, but not the actual product so much. This NIN song, however, is the midpoint of what I consider to be the best hour of narrative television I've seen. It's so good, I even like this song. Seriously, Episode 8 of The Return is basically an hour of unequivocally engrossing WTF video. It's like two train engines colliding in the fictional town of Grease's Rydell High, except one engine is Jackson Pollack artwork and the other engine is Koyaanisqatsi. I think I just blew a metaphor fuse...

2017-08-29: It wasn't meant to be

Hard to miss how iconic this song has been. The instrumental is still used as the show's theme.

2017-08-28: Long afloat on shipless oceans

This is the final week of Twin Peaks: The Return. Music has played as much a part as anything in creating the TP aesthetic, so here's a week of musical standouts. The first one, however, was not used in Twin peaks, nor any other Lynch production. It was, however, planned for Blue Velvet but was not able to clear right$ for the film, so Lynch worked with soon-to-be Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti and singer (& frequent Peaks musical act) Julee Cruise to create a knock-off of sorts called "Mysteries of Love", which was ok, but certainly nowhere close to this track. Written by Tim Buckley and performed on The Monkees, This Mortal Coil slated this number for their 4AD house bands compilation and essentially turned it over to The Cocteau Twins. In any case, it's pretty easy to see this song reverberates through most of Lynch's works.
