At their core, David Lynch films are the juxtaposition of the innocent and the obscene — something the auteur has repeatedly explored in every filmic vehicle save for his adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel Dune.  This juxtaposition very much carries over to his film’s soundtracks and scores — the innocent and the obscene.

Over the past few months I’ve been increasingly preoccupied with the bubblegum pop that made up the 1950s and early ’60s am radio. I’ve started compiling tracks for an imagined Lynch soundtrack.  This is track 1.

  1. I have been compiling my imaginary David Lynch soundtrack for over a year now. You can’t rush these things.

  2. Brilliant choice.

  3. Not one to impose, but I always thought Strange Love by Darlene Love was Lynchian.

  4. I’m going to go with Strange Love as well, but from Slim Harpo
