Angelo Badalamenti describes writing Laura Palmer’s theme.

This is haunting.


It’s so weird to me that out of all the things people could be talking about regarding last night’s Twin Peaks (Part 8), the one topic that doesn’t really seem to be part of the conversation is the MUSIC. I literally woke up today with this particular theme in my head. It’s so moving, haunting, disturbing, beautiful… I had been waiting for a moment that would approach the music-emotion levels of the “Lonely Souls” episode, and I think Angelo Badalamenti finally gave us that with the golden orb scene.
