“Falling” performed by Julee Cruise (1989)

10 02 2009

This track is from Julee Cruise’s debut album, “Floating into the Night,” an absolutely otherworldly collection of ethereal gems. The music itself comes from composer Angelo Badalamenti, best known for scoring films by director David Lynch. In fact, the music for this track was the theme to Lynch’s groundbreaking television series, “Twin Peaks.”

I love Ms Cruise’s gentle voice and straightforward singing style. It fits Badalamenti’s music perfectly. When you need to get out of your own head, away from all the petty problems of the day, you can turn to this record for solace. Lord knows I have. Many times.
