Nothing will ever be as shattering as her (dis)appearance in Mulholland Dr, but I was inestimably pleased to hear her again. And you know, I didn't even care for the song itself (echoes of "Just You..."!). Nevertheless, her voice is something to make mere mortals quail. And the iconic dress against the red curtain really exemplified the otherworldliness of any captivating performance, a long-standing motif with Lynch. The song was almost relentlessly syrupy, yet the effect of the unwavering simplistic melody became rather entrancing. I have not particularly enjoyed most of the other performances--no accounting for taste, right?--but I'm very glad this was made to happen.

I didn't particularly care for the song all that much, but I keep finding myself humming it today.

The Roadhouse has one hell of a roster for a backwater sh*thole like Twin Peaks, hasn't it? 😉

Acht, they'll all just be those copycat dopplegangers - it'll be a dodgy Pink Floyd tribute band next week!  😉

The audio for that scene was WAY overproduced. A shame bc obviously she has a great voice.

I think there's one called Pink Fraud. ? 

Yup, there is...

Well, they DO have the Great Northern, so not quite as backwater. 

In real life, some music greats have chosen to do surprise gigs at small venues.

Tangent, at least TP is more realistic, in Riverdale they had the kids visiting a disco like you'd only find in a large city.

Oh, I forgot to mention this in my previous post, Rebekah's appearence in TP is the second proof that TP and MD take place in the same universe (cf. Laura and Ronette watching Rebekah's performance in MD).

The song was beautiful, and the chevron dress was an excellent nod.

I just listened to No Stars and Llorando, firstly with the visuals as well, then just with the audio.  Interesting that Llorando's considerable emotional punch comes from having the visuals there as well (particularly Watts' reaction).  Listening to just the audio, No Stars comes across as comparable.

I wonder whether Lynch ran out of steam a little with the Roadhouse scenes, in that they're fairly conventional band/audience scenes (though I did notice a few Captain Scarlet style Mysteron circles on the red curtains in Ep10).  The Julee Cruise scenes were much better done in the original series - mass punch ups in the audience, giants appearing on stage, Donna bursting into tears.

Final point - will the Log Lady's suggestion that darkness is coming, and the "No Stars" song literally come true?

They seem to be making us think that scenario is possible! With some of the big themes brought into this season, it wouldn't surprise me  if it is headed to the end of the world, but I doubt it.

Good Spot with the Captain Scarlet, Chris.
