Song to Watch Girls Get Stabbed By?? :)
(I love it.)

This does seem like music you'd want to wave a stiletto and tie around to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm loveless:

Love this opening song. I need a drink with an umbrella in it. Where’s that pool boy when you need him? Greetings all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm dale:

wow - i was singing music to watch girls during the last tune.
Avatar 7:08pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

A Definitive 60s track if ever.

Ivers and Laurel Near singing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm ultradamno:

I literally JUST posted that as my favorite track off Rumble: twitter.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Rich in Washington:

This set reminds me of my old neighborhood video rental store and its 'Midnight Movie' section. RIP Video Connections.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm ultradamno:

The Harder They Come I always remember as a mainstay on Night Flight.

Still never seen!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm ultradamno:

Wiki says sung by Near, composed by Ivers, written by Lynch en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm dale:

nice lullaby from a horror film here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Devon E. Levins:

Wiki vs Discogs!! www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Devon E. Levins:

I've always been under the belief it is Ivers. I think it says it in the end credits.

lost and found....

thanks for spinning...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm dale:

this ISN'T from a war picture with telly savalas and george peppard?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Devon E. Levins:

Imdb sez: Though "Lady in the Radiator" Laurel Near was an accomplished singer who had performed folk music with her sisters Holly and Timi, when she is seen singing "In Heaven (Everything Is Fine)" she is actually lip-syncing a vocal track of musician Peter Ivers, who composed the song at David Lynch's request.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm ultradamno:

Yeah, I had always thought it was Ivers singing myself and then I started seeing conflicting things. If it is I imagine they sped up his voice or something.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Rich in Washington:

The recentish reissue of the Eraserhead soundtrack included a bonus 7" that had an unheard, unissued song by Ivers, a spooky organ instrumental.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm ultradamno:

Wiki's footnotes have more about The Pixies' cover than about the track...so I don't know where they came by it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Rich in Washington:

Ivers had a pretty high register voice himself, but he does sound like he's sped up somewhat there. His solo records are a hoot, by the way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm ultradamno:

@Rich Sacred Bones put that out, as least two different pressings now.

There's a book about Ivers called In Heaven Everything Is Fine and one about New Wave Theater producer/creator David Jove called Freedom Spy that make for interesting contrasting viewpoints.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Rich in Washington:

It's a wonderful package. I've got it.
Keep meaning to read the Ivers book but haven't yet. He was a fascinating figure. Seeing those Best of New Wave Theater segments on Night Flight was life changing for me.
Avatar 7:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Wasn't there some kind of Doc about Ivers & his ambiguous demise ??
Avatar 7:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

NewWaveTheater of course. Had to cling to whatever we could get...stay up for up...ruin our lives & so on...He did wish us a pleasant sleepwalk...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm ultradamno:

A lot of Ivers' Hollywood friends think punks (including some serious speculation regarding Lee Ving) and a lot people think it was Jove (who evidently had a violent temper) and others a random home invader.

I haven't seen a doc about him though there is a pretty good one about Jack Nance called You Don't Know Jack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Rich in Washington:

Not sure about a documentary, but it seems warranted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Rich in Washington:

I really need to see Liquid Sky again. It's been decades.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Rich in Washington:

Recently watched Blood Simple again. The music's haunting.

This show is fantastic, Devin!
Avatar 7:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah THX !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm ultradamno:

Different cover on the book now, huh.

Loved New Wave Theater. I remember the first time I saw Angry Samoans on there doing Ballad of Jerry Curlan and wondering how this could be happening with no censoring.
  7:54pm JakeGould:

This sounds a bit like “Dip in the Pool.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm CVB from SYR:

You have a glistener hooked starting now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm ultradamno:

Barton Fink, still my favorite Coens, though Serious Man is close.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Devon E. Levins:

Thx All! Astor Piazzolla soundtrack show next Tuesday with special guests!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks for a fantastic show, Devin! I'm probably going to rewatch most of these films now thanks to you!

Thanks for the show!!!!
