We’re sadly bringing you the news today that Julee Cruise has passed away aged just 65. You might not know the name, but you absolutely know the hit: she was a collaborator of film auteur David Lynch, and did the vocal version of the Twin Peaks theme song (among other things.)
While the instrumental of ‘Falling’ scared Twin Peaks viewers for… well it still does, her vocal reached number seven in the UK charts and was a worldwide hit. She also spent some time in the B52s, and released solo work.
Her husband, writer Edward Grinnan, announced “I said goodbye to my wife, Julee Cruise, today. She left this realm on her own terms. No regrets. She is at peace.” And that’s the thing isn’t it, when you go, you need to have no regrets.
What a sad shame – we shall miss her
What a shame – she was inspirational
