People have been comparing Netflix’s hit series Stranger Things to Twin Peaks ad nauseam. The small town mystery, the alternate dimension, the ending… But never their soundtracks.
Leeni from Prom Queen, a fan of both shows, made that connection for us and asked herself what Laura Palmer’s Theme by Angelo Badalamenti would sound like in the style of the Stranger Things theme by Survive.
“I have always loved synths. So I fell in love with Stranger Things the first time I heard the theme song,” the singer, writer and producer from the Seattle-based band tells Welcome to Twin Peaks. “And Laura’s Theme is my favorite thing to play on any synthesizer. It’s so beautiful,” she continues.
So tonight, in premiere here on Welcome to Twin Peaks, here’s Prom Queen’s take on the two iconic themes! When you give it a listen, do you see Laura Palmer running through the woods… or is that Mike, Dustin, Lucas and Will?
