Twin Peaks OST
Julie Cruise and Chris Issak just brought you into the mood completely. I love film soundtracks and that in particular, because it was such an unusual film, and then to put these otherworldly, dreamy vocals and songs within it underpinned the mood, along with the sound design. It was something completely new. The new series is mind-blowing, every episode is like a film in its own right. Where are filmmakers going to go now? In retrospect you could say elements of TG are quite David Lynch. We have said that TG was the soundtrack to our lives, and it was because it's about the mood of each day or night or events that happened, which when you listen back it seems quite dark. Though there were mischievous moments too. Dark and mischievous, that's how I describe TG.
