Track Of The Week #4

Julee Cruise - Mysteries Of Love

So, shout out to David Lynch for introducing me to this one. If you haven’t seen Blue Velvet, basically it’s incredible. Highly recommended. This track appears multiple times throughout the film, and now I have a very strange feeling attached to it. This is partly due to its connection to the film, and certain scenes in it, but also the track itself. It really reminds me of Christian choir music. The optimistic type more specifically. Lot’s of perfect cadences, and long drawn out chords, but then intercut with almost melancholic changes. Its the feeling of total contentment, with all the good, and all the bad, captured in audio. Never heard of Julee Cruise before this, so I am definitely going to explore her stuff further over the next week.

Happy Listening,
