Welcome to Bossy’s Ear Worm, which features songs currently in Bossy’s headphones. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
Julee Cruise, Rockin Back Inside My Heart.
Dear children, when dinosaurs roamed the earth and programs were recorded on VCRs, Julee Cruise sang the theme song for a popular and twisted TV show, Twin Peaks, and won a Grammy for it.
She also lent her vocals to this song, featured on an episode of Twin Peaks and written by Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch in 1990. The scene took place in a nightclub and Julee Cruise was singing on a dark little stage and Bossy can’t remember another detail except how thankful she was that she had recorded the episode on her VCR so she could rewind to this spot at will and play and replay it. Because that’s what people did back then, children, without iTunes and YouTube.
Bossy wore the magnet thin on that particular VHS tape.
This song, a verse, a bridge, and a couple of choruses into it, features the best discordant sax solo in the history of discordant sax solos, complete with I-Spy horn part.
This version of the song is approximately three minutes too long, and for that Bossy apologizes. But that’s also the way things were done, dear children.
