When will Binging with Babish make a twin peaks video where he shows how to make good coffee with a fish in the percolator?
“The Sycamore Trees”, sung by Jimmy Scott, written by David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti
Something happens in the song that’s hard to explain... even between the repetitions of the chorus, you can feel the song’s characters changing. I think it’s the repetition of the speaker seeing the “you”, and the “you” only sees the speaker once. What’s happening to the “you”? Why does the speaker insist upon seeing the “you”? Is it really the trees that transforms the “you”, or does the speaker’s gaze mutate the “you”?
I feel like this song can see though me, through the forest of identity and context to the wavering flame that I’ve borrowed from the world.
but then my arms bend back.
