Most of the music on this CD was originally recorded for David Lynch’s made for cable TV special “Industrial Symphony No. 1”. Some of the songs were later used on “Twin Peaks”, where Julee Cruise ocassionally appeared as the Roadhouse Singer. Julee has a very ethereal voice, which is entirely appropriate for this album. The songs all have lyrics by David Lynch, with music by Angelo Badalamenti. The first thing you are likely to notice about the songs is that the words don’t rhyme. That’s pretty unusual, but somehow it works anyway. All the songs are love songs, by the way. The song “Falling” usually get the most attention, because it was later the theme song for “Twin Peaks”, but the best song here is easily “Rockin’ Back Inside My Heart”. Not coincidentally, it also the closest thing here to a traditional song, in that it actually has a repeated chorus. This is actually a beautiful album, in it’s own way. Oh, and it’s better than the “Twin Peaks” soundtrack.  Special thanks to Kunal for providing the link!
