Twin Peaks: curiosità sulla sigla e sulla soundtrack della serie trasmessa negli Usa nell'aprile 1990

Sigla tv, colonna sonora e soundtrack di Twin Peaks

Sono passati 22 anni dalla prima tv, in America, della serie cult "Twin Peaks".

Ancora oggi, la serie tv è ricordata con nostalgia, per il grande clima di evento che aveva generato. Il quesito "Chi ha ucciso Laura Palmer" aveva incuriosito il mondo intero. Anche in Italia raggiunge anche gli undici milioni di telespettatori, su Canale 5.

Era proprio nell'aprile del 1990 che faceva il suo esordio negli Usa, con le prime puntate. Ma, insieme ai personaggi ambigui e ai misteri dei protagonisti della serie tv, la musica e la colonna sonora aveva avuto un ruolo principale dall'inizio alla fine. Dopo il salto, potete leggere alcune curiosità proprio sulla soundtrack dei "Twin Peaks", insieme ad alcuni video (e cliccate qui se non avete visto di Richard Beymer scattate sul set):

  • La colonna sonora è stata composta nel 1989 da Angelo Badalamenti e David Lynch. In soli venti minuti hanno creato la sigla che è stata poi chiamata "Love theme from Twin Peaks".

  • Lynch ha detto a Badalamenti: "Hai appena scritto il 75% della colonna sonora. E' il senso di tutto, è Twin Peaks"

  • Mentre davano vita alla soundtrack, Lynch ha spesso descritto l'umore e le emozioni che voleva dalla musica di Badalamenti, che ha iniziato suonando il pianoforte.

  • La canzone "Falling" (senza parole) è diventata la musica dello show e le canzoni "Rockin' Back Inside My Heart", "The Nightingale", "The World Spins", e "Into the Night" nelle scene ambientate alla Roadhouse

  • Le parole degli unici cinque brani cantati sono stati scritti da David Lynch.

  • Un secondo volume della colonna sonora è stata realizzata il 30 ottobre 2007, in concomitanza con il Definitive Gold Box DVD set.

  • Nel marzo 2011, David Lynch ha iniziato a far ascoltare attraverso il suo sito web le canzoni mai sentite e le tracce inedite della serie tv (i cui titoli trovate a fine post)

  • Nel 1990 Angelo Badalamenti ha vinto un Grammy come Best Pop Instrumental Performance proprio per "Twin Peaks Theme"

  • Moby ha realizzato un remix del tema di Twin Peaks, il singolo "Go" del 1991 che campiona il "Laura Palmer’s Theme”
