Angelo Badalamenti

Best known for his hauntingly atmospheric work with filmmaker David Lynch, composer Angelo Badalamenti was born in Brooklyn, NY, in 1938; a classically trained performer, he spent the early years of his career playing the Catskills resort area, later writing and arranging for singers including Shirley Bassey and country star Mel Tillis. Under the name Andy Badale, he entered the film industry in 1973, debuting with the score to the action film Gordon's War. Despite subsequent work on such features as 1974's Law and Disorder and 1976's Across the Great Divide, Badalamenti remained largely unknown before hooking up with Lynch on the soundtrack of the director's 1986 masterpiece Blue Velvet; they subsequently worked together on the features Wild at Heart, Lost Highway, and The Straight Story. Perhaps the most famous fruit of their collaboration was the cult hit television series Twin Peaks, for which Badalamenti created one of the most distinctive and evocative theme songs in TV history. The duo also wrote and produced a pair of LPs for ethereal chanteuse Julee Cruise, 1989's Floating into the Night and 1993's The Voice of Love, and staged an avant-garde musical theater piece titled Industrial Symphony No. 1. In 1996, Badalamenti shifted gears, teaming with James vocalist Tim Booth for the LP Booth and the Bad Angel. Badalamenti subsequently worked on the scores for such films as Dark Water, The Wicker Man and Edge of Love. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

He gets to compose the music for bad a** films! Badalamenti and Lynch make a great team. The Butterfly is also an outstanding song.

He is also pretty good at spitting up into napkins. Very good nonetheless. Yes indeed, rather. Falling = face explosion.

Probably due to the ambient excursions. Some of it is very mysterious and wistful, not unlike the darker shades of Badalamenti.

I especially love what he did on Wild at Heart. I believe he formed a band for the purpose of the movie, called "Rubber City" and they recorded "Perdita" and "Dark Spanish Symphony" which are both great.

He also colaborated with Matianne Faithfull on her album, "A Secret Life." There is also the little known "Industrial Symphony" that he also did with David Lynch.

The selected discography is, to my mind, some of his least interesting work. Please expand it.
