Roar in Norway asks about other non-Badalamenti music in TP.....

Well, some other 19th-century piano music crops up in an episode early in 
the second season (at least, what constitutes the second season in the 
US)--in the show where Leland and Sarah are having dinner at the 
Haywards', the previously-unseen third Hayward daughter (Gersten) goes to 
the piano and plays the opening section of Mendelssohn's Rondo 
Capriccioso, quite a lovely thing.  (Then she does some really impressive 
boogie-woogie stuff at the very end, over the credits, but that probably 
doesn't count.)

And there's whatever opera that is on the TV at Wally's when the cop goes 
in there after whatsisname's fatal car crash.

And "Surrey with the Fringe on Top" from Leland.

Also the various big-band numbers that reduce Leland to hysteria, incl. 
PEnnsylvania 6-500.

What about the various amateur-hour performances by a) James and Maddie and 
Donna and b) JJ Wheeler (feh!)?  they were so very forgettable that 
I've.....well, forgotten whether they were doing anything recognizable or 

That's all that occurs to me at the moment.
