“A candy colored clown they call the sandman, Tiptoes to my room every night” – Roy Orbison
David Lynch: auteur/soundtrack enthusiast/hypnosis pundit.
Here we have a filmmaker who absolutely transforms the songs he incorporates in his films into his own – Aural puddy in his hands. Can anyone really hear Bobby Vinton’s “Blue Velvet,” without feeling the voyeuristic atmosphere that runs throughout the eponymous film? Of equal importance: Angelo Badalamenti, whose original, other-worldly, Lynchian scores, over the past 20 years, have themselves, created a landscape of there own even apart from the source material.
Lynch, an un-refuted expert in juxtaposing a song with a scene of a dissimilar theme, is often copied, but never trumped. Speaking of, any of you had a chance to see Lynch’s Inland Empire yet? Thoughts?
