It started with "Not In Love," and it grew all the way to 60 songs.  I have no idea if any of them fit the creators' very particular aesthetic, but they're songs that I either associate with the entire cast (like "Wife By Two Thousand," "Little By Little," "Love Will Tear Us Apart," or indeed, "Not In Love") or with a particular character.  Some are sort of "crack" songs (like "Telephone" and "Tainted Love"), but most are "serious."  I tried to give all major characters at least one song, but I know I'm missing some people (sorry Pete Martell and Andy) and I gave my favorite characters extra attention (hence why there is so much Shelly/Bobby and Audrey). 

The mix is divided into three parts: Welcome To Twin Peaks (general overview/character intros), A Strange and Difficult Path (secrets and complications), and The Gifted and the Damned (the BOB/Black Lodge mythos).  The music is sort of... rock/electronica?  I'm very bad at describing and categorizing music, so I have no idea - I just really like all the songs, obviously, and my taste is pretty consistent these days, so chances are you'll be able to tell if you'll like the mix based on the artists.  If in doubt though, you can either take a gamble or look the song up on YouTube.  I chose NOT to provide YouTube links for 60 songs, I'm afraid.  Links should connect correctly, but if not, this is the Twin Peaks folder on my MediaFire. 

Some additional notes: I deliberately put Mrs. Tremond's grandson and "Horror Show" at the end of A Strange and Difficult Path, to illustrate what the Lodge's inhabitants might think of the preceding human problems.  On "Strange Hours," I'm not implying that Laura's killer sacrificed her, but that she sacrificed herself "for the purity of all mankind."  Yes, I used "Dai the Flu" for Bobby and his father, because of the whole "now I know you love me/ thank god you love at all" part.  "Caribou" is basically just there to represent the French-speaking characters and because it sounds like a One-Eyed Jack's song.  I guess I think Hawk is a "Friend of the Night"?  That one's more about the feel of the music.  Hawk is awesome beyond words after all.  And yeah, "Coconut" is just too obvious for Dr. Jacoby, I don't even care. 

And for those of you who disable LJ-cuts, uh, I'm sorry.


“Black Melt” – Massive Attack

You’re not my eater
I’m not your food

“Personal Jesus (Depeche Mode)” – Marilyn Manson

Someone to hear your prayers, someone who cares
Feeling unknown and you’re all alone, flesh and bone by the telephone?
Lift up the receiver, I’ll make you a believer
Things on your chest you need to confess?
I will deliver, you know I’m a forgiver
Reach out and touch faith

“Home” – Depeche Mode

And I thank you for bringing me here
For showing me home
For singing these tears
Finally I've found that I belong here

“To Drown a Rose” – Death in June

Will he hold my soul?
Will he tear my heart?
Will he, will he, will he rip me apart?
To drown a rose, to share a dream: the sickness of death

“Down By The Water” – PJ Harvey

That blue-eyed girl, she said no more
That blue-eyed girl became a blue-eyed whore
Little fish, big fish, swimming in the water
Come back here, man, give me my daughter

“Luv (sic)” – The Tragically Hip

The plot thins, emotions get frayed
Attractions move through the shade
Am I lovesick?
It’s not as if love’s the only virtue there is

“Public Pervert” – Interpol

If time is a vessel, then learning to love might be my way back to sea
So swoon, baby, starry nights
May our bodies remain
You move with me, I’ll treat you right, baby
Yeah in history, I’ll treat you right, I’m honest that way, hey

“Safety Pin Stuck In My Heart” – Chumbawumba

I don’t love you for your graveyard eyes
I don’t love you for your stupid lies
I just love you for that

“Red Right Hand” – Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

He's a man, he's a guru
You're one microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan
Designed and directed by his red right hand
Stacks of green paper in his red right hand

“Hey Joe, where you goin’ with that gun in your hand?”
“I’m goin’ to shoot my old lady,
you know I caught her messing around with another man”

Two steps forward, three steps back
Without warning, heart attack

“Telephone (feat. Beyonce)” – Lady Gaga

What did you say, huh?
You're breaking up on me
Sorry, I cannot hear you, I'm kinda busy
Stop calling, stop calling, I don’t want to think anymore

“I Am A Wicked Child” – Radiohead

I have sinned and I am so confused and I am a wicked child
I am the devil’s son and I wish I could be good
I walk a crooked mile yet I wish I could be good

“Man of Steel” – Frank Black

I’m lonely driving behind the wheel,
Can’t get nowhere, I can’t seem to get it right
I’m only just a man of steel

“Fast Car” – Xiu Xiu

You’ve got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we can make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere

“Hard Sun” – Eddie Vedder

When I walk beside her I am the better man
When I look to leave her I always stagger back again
Once I stood to lose her when I saw what I had done
So I tried to warn her, I turned to see her weep
Forty days and forty nights, and it's still coming down on me

“Little By Little” – Radiohead

Turn to nasty now
The dark cell, the pit of my soul
The last one out of the box, the one who broke this spell
Obligation, complication, routines and schedules
Drug and kill you

“Comatose” – Cenephile

People come, people go
They don't know the things I know
Who they are and what they'll be
They don't see the things I see

“Cabaret Fortune Teller” – Audra

Red devils, white angels, dressed in black.
And the flames grow higher and then start to cry
If you say everyone was meant to be together,
then we can laugh
Maybe this is fantasy, maybe this is Halloween
Maybe it's a memory, wrapped in purple light

“Birds” – Crystal Castles

Show up, throw up into the womb
Pull out their eyes, apologize


“Kings of the Wild Frontier” – Adam & The Ants

A new royal family, a wild nobility
We are the family

“Auf Achse” – Franz Ferdinand

You see her, you can’t touch her
You hear her, you can’t hold her
You want her, you can’t have her
You want to, but she won’t let you

“Bang bang bang bang” – Sohodolls

Teacher says that I’ve been naughty,
I must learn to concentrate
Daddy says I’m good for nothing,
Mama says that it’s been from him
Don’t you want to? Don’t you want to be the one?
Don’t you want to bang bang bang bang bang bang bang?

“Half Light” – Low feat. Tomandandy

In the half light I’ll see you in time

“Caribou” – April March

[In French. It’s something about children “playing Indians.”]

“I’m Dying” – VAST

Not a day goes by that I don’t know that I’m dying
Jesus Christ, are you the savior of the world?
I want to see, but I still believe
Not one day goes by that I don’t realize I know that
no one will ever know where the flowers go when they are gone

“Pictures Of You” – The Cure

Remembering you fallen into my arms,
Crying for the death of your heart, you were stone white, so delicate,
Lost in the cold, you were always so lost in the dark
If only I’d thought of the right words,
I could have held on to your heart

“Anthems for a Seventeen-Year-Old Girl” – Broken Social Scene

Used to be one of the rotten ones and I liked you for that
Now you’re all gone, got your make-up on, and you’re not coming back
Bleaching your teeth, smiling flash, talking trash under your breath
Park that car, drop that phone, sleep on the floor, dream about me

“Tainted Love” – Soft Cell

Don’t touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease
I love you though you hurt me so
Now I’m going to pack my things and go

“Los Angeles” – Sugarcult

I want a girl that won’t talk back and a job that gives me slack
And a car that won’t break down in the heat of Los Angeles
I’m almost desperate, cuz I’m down, I’m down, I’m so beat-down
This city’s killing me, I want, I want, I want everything

“Gouge Away” – the Pixies

Missy aggravation, some sacred questions
You stroke my locks
Some marijuana, if you got some
You can gouge away, stay all day if you want to

“Spin Spin Sugar (Radio Edit)” – Sneaker Pimps

I’m everyone, I feel used
I’m everyone, I need you
I want perfection, I’m real need
I’ve seen attention, see through me
I’m everyone, hang your label on me
I’m everyone, paint me black and white and easy

“Hustler” – Simian Mobile Disco

If I had the money to go to a record store, I would
Go to the record store, put the records in my clothes
When your ass is broke like me
I’m telling you, I’m broke,
But I’m a survivor, and I can cope
What the fuck is you gonna do about it? Nothing

“More” – The Sisters of Mercy

Some people get by with a little bit of understanding
Some people get by with a whole lot more
So I don’t know why you gotta be so undemanding
You won’t get what you deserve, you are what you take
Counterfeit dollars or the English zloty, anything I can get

“Dancing With Myself” – Billy Idol

If I had the chance
I’d ask the world to dance
And I’ll be dancing with myself

"Dance Little Liar" - Arctic Monkeys

I'm sure it's clear and plain to me
Its not an alibi you need just yet
Oh no it's something for those beads of sweat
And the clean coming will hurt and you can never get it spotless
When there's dirt beneath the dirt

“Girls’ Night Out” – The Knife

We were looking for something to blow up (now it’s gone)
We were looking for someone to follow (now it’s gone)
We had one way out (now it’s gone)
We had some hours left (now it’s gone)
We were so close (now it’s gone)

“Dai the Flu” – Deftones

I always wondered what it takes,
Fifteen stitches and a soft parody?
What a surprise, I was right here, going off and going on
At least now I know that you love me
Thank god that you love at all

“Love Will Tear Us Apart” – Worm is Green

When routine bites hard and ambitions are low,
And resentment rides high, but emotions won't grow,
And we're changing our ways, taking different roads
Then love, love will tear us apart again

“Horror Show” – The Birthday Massacre

They're getting ugly, they're a horror show
And now we're laughing because they'll never know that they have everything
We give them all of our own and they tell us they're sick and they're all alone
All their laughing and their talking and their wasting of our time
We don't like to see their eyes cause they will never look the same


“Major Tom” – Shiny Toy Guns

Across the stratosphere a final message,
“Give my wife my love.”
Far beneath the ship, the world is mourning
They don´t realize he´s alive
No one understands but Major Tom sees.
Now the light commands:
“This is my home, I’m coming home.”

“Tender Sugar (Empire Mix)” – Akira Yamaoka

And all these nightmares I once had as a child
The morning always came too late
What did my mind forget to hide
Not again, not again, not again, this dream I can't awake
What is real, what is real, what is real, it's getting hard for me to take

“Coconut” – Fever Ray

He came back one day, told me stories that I now dream of
Open atmosphere, take me anywhere, take me there

“Ones” – Islands

In my mouth, my eyes, my ears, my nose, oh oh
Then my limbs are free like trees, let leaves leave, leave, leave
Close my eyes and see ones here in my head
You're not in this alone
We live in awkward little homes
We all live in our heads, our legs, our toes, our eyes, our throats, homes

“Aisha” – Death in Vegas

Aisha, we only just met, and I think you oughtta know:
I’m a murderer
I have a portrait on my wall, he’s a serial killer
I thought he wouldn’t escape -
Aisha, he got out

“Choke” – Hybrid

You choke it, but you know it comes back when you’re sleeping
Cuts you in the dark
I’ll stay here with my secrets

“Psyche (Killing Joke)” – Nouvelle Vague

If you don’t know the game, then you’re still part of it
Because out on the streets, it’s strange
Dodge the bullet or carry the gun
The choice is yours

“No One Knows” – Queens of the Stone Age

We get some rules to follow
That and this, these and those
We get these pills to swallow
How they stick in your throat
Tastes like gold
Oh, what you do to me, no one knows

“Skin” – Madonna

Do I know you from somewhere?
Why do all the things I say sound like the stupid things I’ve said before?
Kiss me, I’m dying
I’m not like this all the time

“Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums” – A Perfect Circle

Don’t fret, precious, I’m here
Go back to sleep
Safe from pain and truth and choice, and other poison devils
See, they don’t give a fuck about you like I do

“Lust” – The Raveonettes

I fell out of heaven to be with you in hell
My sins not quite seven, nothing much to tell
Man sure is weak, but lust holds my hand
I struggled and I cried, I pounced with no avail
Least I never lied or did the truth derail

“Mt. Eerie” – The Microphones

Do you see what happens? Do you see what happens?
When big black death breathes on you with his breath?
I’m wild and woolly, a bloating bully
I’ll strike you down and then, I’ll strike you down again
So take me in and crumble, be smothered in my rumble

“We Are The Lust” – Death in June

Hold the bloodied knife to the throat of love
We are the lust that comes from nothing
We are the lust as they turn to dust, as they ground to dust

“Strange Hours” – Recoil

He kept strange hours
Locked himself away in his room
And he had murdered his fiancee
He sacrificed her for the purity of all mankind

“My Weakness” – Moby

This is my weakness
Oh I go home, home with him

“Dancing in the Dark” – Bruce Springsteen

You sit around getting older –
there’s a joke here somewhere and it’s on me
You can’t start a fire sitting around crying over a broken heart
You can’t start a fire worrying about your little world falling apart
This gun’s for hire, even if we’re just dancing in the dark

“Not In Love (Feat. Robert Smith” – Crystal Castles

And we were lovers, now we can’t be friends
Fascination ends, here we go again
Cuz it’s cold outside, when you coming home?
Cuz it’s hot inside, isn’t that enough?

“Friend of the Night” – Mogwai


“Wife By Two Thousand” – Sneaker Pimps

I think that I need some working on, so work on me
I think that nothing’s getting through, so get to me
No one’s broken, no one’s beaten, I can see a rainbow

“Love Will Save You” – Swans

Love will save you from yourself when you lose control
Love will save you from all the lies your lover ever told you
Love will save you from the black night and the lightning and the ghost
Love will save you from the hands that pull you down beneath the sea
But it won’t save me

I like it as much for the stills from the series (which bring back memories--I had forgotten the lady with the eyepatch!) as for the music links, which I haven't gone to yet but wow, what a great resource for future music. Thanks!

It took me 9000 hours! But that's ok, I had a lot of fun with it. I'm glad you like the stills, because I do too! There are some very, very dedicated TP fans out there.

I totally managed to get my mom into the show recently. She started watching the second half of Season 2 on her own last night.

Wow, there is a lot of music I don't know here. Thank you!

Also, Sneaker Pimps always makes me think "I'm not a hipster but I flip it like a Sneaker Pimp" now.

No problem!

Where's the quote from? Don't recognize it.

It's from a Talib Kweli song, don't remember which one
