Getting to Know You: ‘Twin Peaks’ Characters and the Songs They Sing

A video-playlist of Lynchian proportions.

Of the many cryptic quotes uttered by the Man From Another Place in David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks, one of the more famous is the following:

“Where I come from the birds sing a pretty song and there’s always music in the air.”

This is meant to be a vague description of the otherworldly realm in which the Man dwells, but it’s equally as apt a description of the town of Twin Peaks, where between all the murdering, dimension hopping, and coffee consumption, there’s a fair amount of singing. Leland alone belts out “Get Happy,” “The Surrey with the Fringe on Top,” “Getting to Know You,” and “Mairzy Doats” over the course of the series, and who could forget the honey-dripping, high-note doo-wop of James, Donna and Maddy recording the original “Just You?” or Julee Cruise and the band down at The Road House?
