I swear I've heard a mix/version of Medicine's "Time Baby" that falls in that groove. The vocals are certainly already there.

Drugstore - Starcrossed

But is there an example of this type of sound that also involved pizza?

Something off of "Mystery Girl" by Roy Orbison, maybe "She's a Mystery to Me"?

The album was named after the chorus from the track "She's a Mystery to Me", written for Orbison by U2's Bono and The Edge.

In the documentary In Dreams: The Roy Orbison Story, Bono tells how he woke up for a concert's sound check, following a late night listening to the soundtrack to David Lynch's Blue Velvet, and had the tune in his head, figuring it was another Orbison song ("In Dreams" was the only Orbison song on that album). During the sound check he performed it for the other members of U2, who agreed that the track sounded like an Orbison song. A short while later, Orbison met the band backstage at one of their concerts and subsequently asked Bono if he would like to write a song with/for him.

More mid-'90s-ish:

Bjork - "Come To Me"
Liz Phair - "Nashville"
Mazzy Star - "Roseblood" (but also kinda everything they recorded)

"Deep Red Bells" by Neko Case. A few tracks on "Blacklisted" give me this vibe, actually.

(Love's a Lonely Place to Be is even more of a Julee Cruise soundalike, but it's from 1983)

The Innocence Mission hit their stride with this sound in mid/late 90s ("Bright as Yellow" and all of Birds of My Neighborhood).

Vanessa Paradis - Walk On The Wild Side

john wahey (NickB), Monday, 14 July 2014 20:45 (three years ago) Permalink

So I guess you Memory Lane shadows might not want a modern equivalent, but if you do, maybe try Ophelia Slowly, recent solo album by The Entrance Band's Guy Blakeslee: brings the lucid autumn city gray to a mindless summer 'burban day, also guaranteed to inspire sombre horny brooding over lost muse objects, suitable for projection: "Where are you, where am I," to paraphrase, and a clutter of clues, but also doomy jangle balanced by crisp vintage drum machines, almost often enough; ditto stereo babes brushing by in the background (lose the bits of falsetto though, GB). I like him better with TEB, but if you want something more suitable for an afternoon music break's discreet self-torture (minus wine, if you gotta go back to work), this is okay.

Wow. As someone who owns and loves both versions of the Happiness album, that just made me really want to find 'On the Way Down From the Moon Palace'.

Maybe too obvious, and not as affectively flat as LDR generally tries to be, but the This Mortal Coil versions of "Song to the Siren" and "Kangaroo" seem to set out a blueprint for lynchcore (at least for Lynch/Badalamenti's work with Julee Cruise):

American Music Club- Why Won't You Stay

relentlessly pecking at peace (President Keyes), Monday, 14 July 2014 23:17 (three years ago) Permalink

("Mysteries of Love" did start out as a pastiche of "Song to the Siren" as a cost-cutting measure for Blue Velvet, though so I think the point stands.)

Totally outside of this thread's timeframe but I don't think there's a thread for 'old music Lynch would probably get around to using at some point if he weren't very likely retired from filmmaking' so here's a bit of proto-Hurley for y'all.

If we're going that far back, I would recommend Friday's Child by Lee Hazelwood, and Lee Hazelwood in general.

But if it needs to be late 80s / early 90s, try Slowdive's version of the Hazelwood song "Some Velvet Morning".

Also maybe the Sundays' version of 'Wild Horses'.

'On The Low' and 'Around My Smile', by Hope Sandoval and the Warm Inventions, are from 2001, but they are even more Lynchian than anything Sandoval did with Mazzy Star.
