The Secret Fanmix of Laura Palmer | A Twin Peaks Mix
Double-sided, 22 tracks total + cover art

A collaboration between hollywoodgrrl and ohvienna.

In Twin Peaks, through the investigation of Laura Palmer’s murder, we discover that there’s more than one side to this homecoming queen: she’s filled with secrets. In Fire Walk with Me, we live through her struggles and transgressions, and bear witness to the horror of her final days. In the pages of The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer, we read her cries for help. All three texts do their part in bringing her to life, and all three served as inspiration for this fanmix. It’s our hope that, as you go from song to song, you hear Laura’s voice and listen to her story.

~Bold text excerpts taken from poems found in The Secret Diary.

~Image from the Side B cover art is a scan of the actual prop used during the scene where Leland Palmer breaks the frame of Laura’s homecoming portrait. Ray Wise accidentally cut his hand on the glass and they continued filming. That’s real blood smeared on the photo.

Side A

01. Town of Sorrow | Bertie Blackman
Now boys tell me your name because it’s ruined down here
And dirt rows covered in daisies so in love with each other
Forty seconds is all it takes now I’m right here
And put it down, honey, because these are my last words
And I’m your lover with a twisted mind
I take you over and make you mine

02. Fear of Fireflies | Calla
My fear of fire back cover me / Steal sure fire over me
Sea of fireflies hover in the dark / Following tracers scattering apart
Following me

03. Seven | Fever Ray
I know it / I think I know it from a hymn
They said so / It doesn’t need no explanation
Or a box to open up with light and sound / making you cold / very cold
November smoke and your toes go numb / A new color on the globe
it goes from white to red a little voice in my head says uh-oh

04. Headlights | Archive
Too bright to be day / Too hurt anyway
Still there’s no view / No green, no blue / The headlights above
they don’t know love / You smile to please / I try to care
You break my heart

05. In My Body | The Smashing Pumpkins
June’s offcast / Left hiding / I form the screams
Burned alive / Wasted sunsets / haunting my torment
right through my clothes / In my body you’ll never find me
You’ll never pull me out / In my body the lonely creatures
The lonely creatures scream

06. ‘Til the Clouds Clear | Lamb
So here you are / Demons screaming in your head
You try to shut them out but they just get louder instead
And nothing you do can seem to break through this darkness smothering you
When it takes hold your heart turns cold / The very soul seeps out of you

07. Hybrid | Elsiane
Living in a dangerous womb / It’s like falling every moment every stage
Living in my own little world / Outcoming every sequence of this dream
How did this begin and turn in such inhumanity?
I’m hoping for myself to escape the insanity / I’m open

08. Song Among the Pine | Gravenhurst
Song among the pine / Cones and needles lie atop the dark soil
They will come for me with searchlights streaming through the cedar trees
Cold ash smother the fire / Cold ash smother the fire
The ripple of the stream is just one way the forest speaks to me
The anger in the streets is just the way this broken city breathes

09. I Just Had to Die | The Knife
I am the schoolgirl’s queen / I am under eighteen
And I can tell you why / I have decided to die
I got a bad desire / I’m on fire

10. Magic Doors | PJ Harvey
I can’t deny what I’ve become / I’m just emotionally undone
I can’t deny I can’t be someone else / When I have tried to find the words
to describe this sense absurd / Try to resist my thoughts but I can’t lie
I can’t divide or hide from me / I don’t know who I’m meant to be
I guess it’s just the person that I am

11. Modern Romance | Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Time / Time is gone / It stops, stops who it wants
Well I was wrong / It never lasts / There is no / This is no modern romance

Side B

01. God’s Gonna Cut You Down | Costanza
I’ve been down on bended knee / Talking to the man from Galilee
He spoke to me in the voice so sweet / I thought I heard the shuffle of the angel’s feet
Go tell that long tongue liar / Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell ’em that God’s gonna cut you down
You can run on for a long time / Sooner or later God’ll cut you down

02. No Girl So Sweet | PJ Harvey
In came a girl with the saddened eyes and asked him over again and again
Was I too weak / Was I a child / Say I don’t mind if you take me down and I don’t mind
if you break it all / But how much more can you take from me / I’d like to take you
inside my head / I’d like to take you inside of me /He came from heaven
is all he said / You came from heaven and came into me / He drove it fast
and made it the whole night / And daddy’s angel where she layed
Rested my head and closed her eyes / And outside the heat in those summer days
Deep in the sky a storm it seemed / They make nothing no girl so sweet

03. Rebellious Palpitations | Spinnerette
White lines on the table look like a road /Then there’s the message
that we’re hooked / Dominoes / Cheap sex in a pickup truck is a mess
Then there’s the message that we’re fucked / Fall in love
Hey what’s your name? / I’ll give you anything you want / Hey what’s your name?
I’ll take everything you’ve got

04. Native Numb | Enon
She’s spurting adult with the blood and gore / It’s like she’s speaking
from an open sore / She’s a double-wire-crosser / Another broken cup-and-saucer
With a kiss and disarray / Split it with a razor it’ll be on the way
It doesn’t matter / Sink it, you’ll never save it / The boys are gonna
There’s no one to blame

05. Tear You Apart | She Wants Revenge
Either way he wanted her and this was bad / He wanted to do things to her
It was making him crazy / Now a little crush turned into a like
And now he wants to grab her by the hair and tell her
I want to hold you close / Skin pressed against me tight / Lie still and close your eyes girl
So lovely, it feels so right / I want to hold you close / Soft breasts, beating heart
As I whisper in your ear / I want to fucking tear you apart

06. Shiny Monster | Gram Rabbit
Stand up to the plate / I’m really trying hard
And don’t you feel just great / This monster is contained
I’ve kept her in her cage / Are they just dancing wild
And don’t you feel so great / This monster is not contained
Something tells me that you’re coming over here
I try to act too coy / It doesn’t matter cause I’m just a little toy
In the land of man hands
I want to breathe but I can’t see the light

07. Butterfly Collector | Garbage
There’s tarts and whores but you’re much more
You’re a different kind because you want their minds / And you just don’t care
because you’ve got no pride / It’s just a face on your pillowcase
That thrills you / And you started looking much older
But to you in your little dream world / You’re still the queen
of the butterfly collectors / And I don’t care about morals
Because the world’s insane and we’re all to blame anyway

08. Deeper and Deeper | Dave Gahan
I’m gonna have you when I want to / I’m gonna take you
That’s what I like / I’m going down now / Deeper and deeper
Under your skin / You know that it’s right / You can’t tell me
That you don’t want it / You know that I like it qhen you put up a fight
I’m gonna have you when I want to / I’m gonna take you that’s what I like
I wanna love you / I want your love / I wanna love you / I want your love

09. Angel | Massive Attack
You are my angel come from way above to bring me love
Her eyes / She’s on the dark side / Neutralize every man in sight

10. The Amazing Sounds of Orgy | Radiohead
I want to see you smile again / Like diamonds in the dust
The amazing sound of the killing hordes / The day the banks collapse on us
Cease this endless chattering like everything is fine / When sorry is not good enough
Sit in the back while no one drives / I’m so glad you’re mine

11. Gods and Monsters | I Am Kloot
So full of contradictions / No dereliction / There are no gods and monsters
So useless and so pretty and so good / So pretty and so good
Gods and monsters / Now have I got you watching / For all the gods and monsters
Are sitting, reclining in the back row of your mind
I think that’s what you’ll find
Yes, there are gods and monsters

April 8, 1990 – April 8, 2010: the 20th anniversary of Twin Peaks.
