Antony and the Johnsons :: Mysteries of Love

Over the past 25 years the collaboration between David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti has yielded many a monster—producing some of cinemas most gothic, memorable and atmospheric scores. A relationship that began with Lynch’s 1986 dark masterpiece Blue Velvet, in which Badalamenti was brought on board to flesh out the aural landscape, the film also marked the first appearance of the pair’s vocal muse, Julee Cruise, who came aboard as Isabella Rossellini’s vocal coach and sang the Lynch/Badalamenti penned “Mysteries of Love” (Cruise would go on to work extensively with the two on Twin Peaks).

We are presently examining the unique, often transformative, cover work of Antony and the Johnsons. Antony’s aesthetic lends itself perfectly to “Mysteries,” as covered on the I Fell in Love With a Dead Boy EP.
