Julee Cruise in “Twin Peaks”

The Washington Post Sunday - - BOOK WORLD -

Di­rec­tor David Lynch and his trusty sound­track com­poser An­gelo Badala­menti wrote and pro­duced Cruise’s bil­lowy, stand-alone 1989 de­but, “Float­ing Into the Night,” af­ter work­ing with the singer on Lynch’s 1986 film, “Blue Vel­vet.” But as ex­quis­ite as this mu­sic was in its own right, it be­came in­ex­tri­ca­ble from “Twin Peaks” af­ter Lynch called on Cruise to per­form in two episodes of his deeply imag­i­na­tive tele­vi­sion se­ries. Most films and TV shows usher fic­tional songs into re­al­ity, but this was an in­ver­sion: The di­rec­tor ef­fec­tively sealed the singer’s realest songs in­side a fic­tional uni­verse.
