The original Twin Peaks version of 12 Days of Christmas was recorded 30 years ago by KROQ-FM’s Kevin and Bean, so Twin Peaks Unwrapped’s Ben Durant and Bryon Kozaczka thought it was about time for an updated version with a few season 3 references… and cast members!
Vocal contributions to the 2020 version come from Twin Peaks cast members Mary Reber (Alice Chalfont), Carel Struycken (The Fireman), Kenneth Welsh (Windom Earle) Kimmy Robertson (Lucy Brennan), Robert Broski (the “Gotta Light?” woodsman), Amy Shiels (Candy), Chrystabell (Tammy Preston), Jake Wardle (Freddie Sykes), and David Patrick Kelly (Jerry Horne). Blue Rose Magazine’s Scott Ryan, who also wrote the lyrics, is joined by fellow Twin Peaks fans Eben Moore (as Bobby Briggs), Francine “The Lucid Dream” (as Laura Palmer), and Minx Arcana (Josie Packard) of The Pink Room fame. Some of Rinaldo Zoontjes’ Twin Peaks pieces are featured throughout the video. But… where are Ben and Bryon’s angelic voices?
The 12 Days of Twin Peaks Christmas (2020 Version)
On the X day of Christmas, Laura Palmer sent to me:
An owl in a Sycamore tree.
Three cups of coffee
Four myna birds
Five golden orbs
Six Gordons yelling
Seven dreamers dreaming
Eight Maids ‘o Josie
Nine Audreys dancing
Ten corns a creaming
Eleven Piper Lauries
Twelve rainbow trout
We would have participated in singing the song if not all the cast had participated. Lucky for us the parts were filled!
Would have loved to have heard you guys!
