Angelo Badalamenti's score for David Lynch's television series Twin Peaks is a model of film music ideally matched to the images and actions it underscores. Lynch's world, in which almost nothing was what it seemed to be, was so devastatingly chilling, mysteriously sinister, and fall-down funny -- so surreal -- that audiences were kept in a state of emotional upheaval that tended to either make them flee or turn them into avid followers. The sometimes overtly and sometimes subliminally creepy music Badalamenti created contributed immeasurably to the deeply unsettling textures of the series. That was largely because of his skill at creating such complexly layered music that, like the drama itself, simultaneously stirred up such a flurry of powerful, conflicting emotions. The theme song "Falling" is a perfect example of the emotional layering Badalamenti used throughout the series. Its words, and even its melody, make it seem like a traditional love ballad, but the accompaniment is so deeply menacing that anyone to whom it might actually be sung as a love song would be hard pressed to keep from jumping up and running like hell. That threatening undercurrent, created by throbbing electric guitars, synthesizers with a vibrato that's off the charts, and a weirdly, relentlessly chugging percussion, subverts whatever style of music it underlies, whether it's the cool jazz of "Audrey's Dance" or the surging romantic passion of "Laura Palmer's Theme." (The spookiest thing about "Laura Palmer's Theme" is that its soaring lyricism evolves out of, and then recedes back into, music that evokes a chillingly dark perversity, an aural analog for Lynch's twisted narrative and visual imagery.) The composer and his ensemble deliver vivid performances of this eccentric music, and Julee Cruise's vocals are hauntingly ethereal. The sound is immaculate: clean, present, and atmospheric.

WES SIDE STORIES: The best musical moments in Wes Anderson’s films

Anderson's films can be polarizing: Charming or cloying, depending on your point of view. But if you're a fan, you no doubt appreciate the director's (and frequent collaborator, music supervisor Randall Poster's) obvious love of music—some of it as well known as Paul Simon or the frequently used Rolling Stones; some of it if-you-know-you-know cult classics.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

Once upon a time... there was Ennio Morricone

For almost sixty years, Ennio Morricone had been completely devoted to writing film music. The man with 500 film scores passed away at the age of 91, on July 6, 2020. But where did the story start? We take a look at the origins of a composer who became a major cultural phenomenon in the mid-1960s, in particular thanks to the films of Sergio Leone.
