What about Music ?

I've always loved this song. I did not expect the lyrics to go this way out of nowhere.

I mean this like it sounds, like it is. And I don't mean George Harrison. You'll just have to watch it.

P.S. This masterpiece was how I first enjoyed the song:

I've been getting into the jazz guitarist Julian Lage and apparently he did an instrumental rendition of In Heaven from Eraserhead:

The same album also has a cover of Roy Orbison's Crying. Not sure if that's meant to be, at least in part, a nod to Mulholland Drive?

I've long been a fan of the French songstress Mylène Farmer. I discovered her videos in the early 1990s. I was initially confused by the English surname (she's a fan of actress Frances Farmer) and French music, but her videos, directed by her producer, collaborator, co-writer (sometime lover, allegedly) Laurent Boutonnat, who should have become a great film director. She's still a huge star in Europe. Her 2019 concert residency was the biggest concert ever held in Europe, apparently. I was more a fan of the videos, initially, but got into the music with my meagre French in time. Her music is typically Gallic, loaded with meditations about sex, love, failure, death, suicide, but all to catchy tunes. Mylène and Laurent settled into a pattern after her first album of her writing the lyrics and Laurent writing the music. This collaboration continued until 2009. They've only done one album since, in 2013, although they have collaborated to produce work for other singers

Her original 1980s era videos actually has a continuing narrative, with spirits crossing paths in more than one video.

Here's a small selection in narrative order (definitely NSFW! Seriously not!!) and some videos are long with the music being only a small component. They're a riot of horror, historical drama, fantasy, sex and violence. And she did all the howling wolves and Catholic symbolism before Madonna!!

Plus grandir is her first major filmed clip

Libertine is the first video I ever saw of her's. It's the beginning of a trilogy featuring a rivalry with characters played by her dancer Sophie Tellier.

Tristana is amazing and the second one I ever saw

Pourvu qu'elles soient douces is a sequel to Libertine and ends a loose trilogy about rivalry.

Sans contrefaçon is eerie and Pinocchio-esque

Sans logique is really screwed up and I love it. Quite short and based on Goya's Witches' Sabbath.

A quoi je sers brings the saga to a close with the return of several characters

The next era kicked off with this one, the action-packed Désenchantée. Very cool!

You all may like Camper Van Beethoven, one of my favorite bands. Very Lynch-inspired, with surreal lyrics and strange concepts, but always catchy. Years ago they made a big reunion concept album that was this sci-fi story about an alternate future where things are run by aliens and there's various rebel groups, etc. There's a song about Twin Peaks (sort of):
