I always liked this song. So I’d like to share this, for no good reason other than its moody, dark, relatively groovy.
Felt compelled to watch this again, so I found the clip on YouTube, and a user comment contained this unsurprising information:
lois6079: As you guys may or may not know – this was actually diolog from David Lynch’s dream project called “Ronny Rocket”. A script he wrote after Erasurhead. Here is the script text:
I got idea, man…you take me for a walk ( she moves closer to the guy) under the sycamore trees (closer) the dark trees that blow, baby. In the dark trees I’ll see you and you’ll see me…I’ll see you in the branches that blow in the breeze…I’ll see you under the trees.
There you have it. That’s what I wanted to post. Goodnight. Good luck.
That clip shows what I liked about Twin Peaks (and much of Lynch’s early work) – that it seemed to be the dark side of the 50s brought to light. Like a 50s nightmare versus the 50s nostalgia that dominated much of pop culture since the early 70s.
Tops, thanks for the reminder!
