Electricity is humming. You hear it in the mountains and rivers. You see it dance among the seas and stars and glowing around the moon. But in these days, the glow is dying. What will be in the darkness that remains?

Rebekah Del Rio, the Latin American singer/songwriter who sung the unforgettable “Llorando” in everyone’s favorite Mulholland Drive moment, showed up in a different David Lynch universe last night. Unlike her suddenly aborted Club Silencio performance, she was able to finish the entire song during the end credits of Twin Peaks Part 10.

Wearing a chevron dress, an obvious nod to the floor in the Black Lodge, “La Llorona de Los Angeles” sang “No Stars” from her 2011 album, Love Hurts Love Heals, and written by David Lynch, John Neff and herself. Unlike the original recording, her always stellar voice seems pitch-corrected at times. Peeee-culiar because her Spanish a capella version of Roy Orbison’s “Crying” was used in Mulholland Drive without any additional processing, except for a reverb. On the other hand, David Lynch abundantly used the auto-tune effect on both his Crazy Clown Time and The Big Dream albums.

The radiant chanteuse brought an impressive band to the Roadhouse too. Surely, everyone recognized massive Twin Peaks fan Moby on the guitar, but the keyboard player is none other than record producer Nick Launay, who worked with Arcade Fire, Lou Reed, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the upcoming Roadhouse band The Veils. On the drums, we see Twin Peaks’ own property master, Mick Flowers.

“No Stars” was included in the unofficial Twin Peaks 2017 cast mixtape and will be part of the upcoming Twin Peaks soundtrack. How does this rank in your list of Roadhouse performances so far?


Besides Mulholland Drive and now Twin Peaks, Rebekah Del Rio participated in a third David Lynch project when she was a stand-in for Laura Harring in episode 3 of David Lynch’s Rabbits. Rebekah also recently performed at David Lynch’s Festival of Disruption and The Music of David Lynch, and here she is singing “No Stars” live in L.A. back in 2001 with John Neff on guitar.

Rebekah Del Rio – No Stars (Lyrics)

[Verse 1]
My dream is to go
To that place
You know the one
Where it all began
On a starry night
On a starry night
When it all began

You said hold me
Hold me, hold me
Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid
We’re with the stars

[Verse 2]
I saw them in your eyes
En tus palabras
Y en tus besos, tus besos
Debajo de una noche
Na llena de estrellas
Under the starry night
Long ago
But now it’s a dream

[Modified Chorus]
Yo vi, en tus ojos
Yo vi, las estrellas
Pero ya no hay, ya no hay
Pero ya no hay, ya no hay

No stars
No stars
Ya no hay estrellas
No stars
No stars
No stars
No stars
No stars
No stars
Ya no hay estrellas
No stars
No stars
No stars
No stars
No stars
No stars

    Is “No Stars” going to be on one of the soundtracks? It looks like they updated the songs on iTunes that would be on the soundtrack and the only one from this week’s episode is the Thought Gang song. I really hope it’s on there – great song!

    • beflygelt says:

      The song is going to be on the soundtrack album but I wonder whether they will use the respective studio versions or the “Live in The Roadhouse” versions.. Because the Roadhouse ones are pretty damn great

  3. Emma Hunter says:

    I love this track. Her emotion is always so raw.
