So I recently saw (and reviewed) David Lynch’s film Inland Empire and subsequently did some research on the film’s soundtrack, having liked most of the film’s music. Turns out none of the music for the film was by Angelo Badalamenti, the composer Lynch most often works with for his films. Instead, the majority of the music is by Lynch himself. This includes the film’s most memorable piece, the song “Ghost Of Love”, on which David Lynch even sings himself (with some warbling effects added). This haunting tune is this week’s pick.
This song almost makes up for my overall disappointment with the actual film. Just too bad the soundtrack is still being sold at full retail price at pretty much all online stores I’ve seen, which is above my means. Hoping I’ll stumble over it in a bargain bin some day. This, and the Angelo Badalamenti soundtrack for Lynch’s film The Straight Story.
