Hear F*ck-You-Tammy Cover The TWIN PEAKS Theme
A lot of fans didn’t care for Chrysta Bell in the third season of TWIN PEAKS. (Can you believe we are coming up on the anniversary of the show’s debut on Showtime last May? Where the hell has the time gone?) I was initially one of those fans, although Bell’s performance as FBI Agent Tamara “Tammy” Preston grew on me as the series progressed. (I will never be able to hear the character’s name without immediately thinking of Laura Dern’s snarky dismissal, “F*ck you, Tammy!” which is how her character responds to everyone in the cast.) Bell ain’t too hard on the eyes, plus it was Preston who “authored” the novel THE SECRET HISTORY OF TWIN PEAKS (in actuality it was written by showrunner Mark Frost). But Ms. Bell is, first and foremost, a singer. Being the longtime musical collaborator with David Lynch is how she landed the gig on the show in the first place.
TWIN PEAKS completists can now obtain, perfectly legally, Bell’s performing of the TWIN PEAKS theme song, “Falling.” Just click here and enter your information.
I am currently rereading the third TWIN PEAKS novel, TWIN PEAKS: THE FINAL DOSSIER to refresh my memory, then I’ll be passing along my impressions to all of you. And if you still aren’t a Lynchian and a Peaker, there is still time. Get the song, then get caught up. Just make sure to watch (and read) all the episodes (books) in order. It’s the only hope you have of being able to navigate the labyrinth.
