"Just You" is to music ...

Postby GreatWent » Sat Nov 10, 2007 3:06 pm

... what "Plan 9 from Outer Space" is to movies.

This song make all coherent thoughts leave my head. It's truly awe-inspring in its awfulness.

Now you've got that song stuck in my head! :evil: I think they have a picture of that scene in the CD booklet.

I agree that all coherent thoughts leave one's head, but "Just you" is amazing. I'm not kidding.

If I try to imagine that it's someone other than James Marshall singing, I can enjoy it. But then I remember that it is him. It's complicated.

I agree that the song is pants if you don't have a context for it, but I just love that scene. The combination of the sheer goofiness of it all (especially when the imaginary backing band kicks in out of thin air), the melodramatic adolescent emotions and longing, and the ethereal haze that sorta hangs over it all makes it a quintessential Lynch moment for me. Especially since it's followed moments later by Maddy's horrific BOB vision. The whole thing amounts to one of the show's most memorable sequences, IMHO.

the ridiculousness of james and donna leads to most of bob's terrifying appearances...mainly the couch and maddy's murder. i dont know what that means.

It is super cheesy, but I am okay with it. I think it has an extremely ominous undercurrent to the song because everytime I hear it I think of Maddy seeing Bob crawl over the couch.
Welcome to amateur hour. Looks like an all-nighter, boys.

Right now I'm watching through the series for the (something)th time, but my girlfriend is seeing it for the first time. Tonight we watched the episode in question, and even though that song is cringe-worthy it really sets a mood that makes the BOB scene quite jarring. My girlfriend was kind of snickering through the song (she finds pretty much all of the James-Donna scenes kind of silly), but she was really startled a minute later when BOB walks around the corner and over the couch.

So... say what you want about the song, but it does make that scene more effective and a lot more memorable.
