Mulholland Dr. OST

Like every collaboration between David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti, Mulholland Drive's soundtrack is equally eerie, elegant, and eclectic, spanning the up-tempo swing of "Jitterbug" and the haunting drones of the film's main theme in its first two tracks alone. Badalamenti's work ranges from the jazzy "Dinner Party Pool Music" to the ominous ambience of "Diner," "Silencio," and "Dwarfland/Love Theme." Lynch's own surfy, guitar-based compositions, "Mountains Falling" and "Go Get Some," aren't quite as transporting as Badalamenti's pieces, but they do offer a sonic twist on the sunny California that Lynch subverts in the film. Similarly, Linda Scott's sugary-sweet "I've Told Every Little Star" takes on a slightly disturbing edge in the context of the album, while "Llorando," Rebecca Del Rio's Spanish a cappella version of Roy Orbison's classic "Crying," only sounds more vulnerable and heart-wrenching. More focused than the Lost Highway soundtrack and more traditionally Lynchian than the score for The Straight Story, Mulholland Drive is a mysterious and affecting soundtrack from one of the most consistently creative teams working in film.
