Playlist: Alternative Twin Peaks

We took a crack at putting together a playlist of songs that could easily fit into the Twin Peaks world.  We’ve got lots of Laura Palmer songs, but ones for Donna, Audrey, Norma and Big Ed, and even Bobby.

“Because when I fall into the abyss, I go straight into it, head down and heels up, and I’m even pleased that I’m falling in just such a humiliating position, and for me I find it beautiful. And so in that very shame I suddenly begin a hymn. Let me be cursed, let me be base and view, but let me also kiss the hem that garment in which my God is clothed; let me be following the devil at the same time, but still I am also your son, Lord, and I love you, and I feel a joy without which the world cannot stand and be.”
– from the Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky
