Good question.  You of course know about "floating into the night" and
the TP soundtrack, but did you know he did the Wild at Heart soundtrack
too?  I think it's great!  It has a few emotionally evocative symphonies,
a few elvis style songs sung by nicholas cage, a great hard rock song,
and a few jazz and fiftiesish songs.  It also has a few haunting ballads 
by Chris Isaak that are too beautiful for words.  I saw Chris Isaak in 
concert last weekend, and he was fantastic.  What an incredible vocalist.
He sung for two and a half hours.  Really funny guy too.  Someone posted
a rumor here a while back that Chris Isaak was going to appear on TP.  
Any new info on this?  I know he is friends with David Lynch.  He
sure has the character to fit right in...  His music would fit right in
too.  Alot of Roy Orbison influenced 50's sounding stuff, with spanish
guitar.  Sorry about that mouthful.


I don't know what else Angelo Badalamenti has done besides these, but I'd
love to find out.  I've learned to play many of the songs from these albums,
and if his other work is as good I'd love to hear it.  I'm doing a cover
of the Chris Isaak songs on Wild at Heart and sending to the tapes
to a few friends as a Christmas gift.  Pretty strange huh. :)

I'm sure I'm not spelling "badalamenti" right, I'm sorry about that.
I know how much it bothers me when people spell Leland, "Leeland" or
"Lelland".  Probably because he's my favorite character.   I'll really
miss him.  *sob*   *sob*  *sob*
