Both will be helpful. When I finish my lists I will combine them into all tracks list from A to Z.


Awesome. And actually, I really like some of your track names, like Johnson's Theme and 24 Hours. I'll probably edit my guide and rename them and refer to the tracks that way in the rest of my guide.


I'll stick now to my names for the tracks. When all work will be finished, I'll reedit all list and I will add your names also in brackets: (aka "XYZ").

Great job Guy! A real pleasure to read!

Guy Quenneville wrote:-- Twin Peaks Theme (Solo Rhodes): Makes what I believe is its only appearance in the show, in the scene when Doc Hayward induces Nadine to come out of her coma. Once she becomes reanimated, Night Bells kicks in. Released on DL.com in April 2011.


Actually, the Solo Rhodes version makes its most memorable appearance in episode 17 when Norma's mother confesses to being MT Wentz. Most people remember it most from that scene. In addition, its used in the Ben home movies scene (ep 18). The "Harp & Guitar" version segues into it, and its part of the "mix" used in the released "Nostalgia Version". I'm pretty sure it pops up a couple of other times as well.

Guy Quenneville wrote:-- Night Bells: Makes its premiere in this episode, at the start of the scene when Donna visits James in jail. Will return many times in season two, as in episode 10 when Nadine comes out of her coma, and in FWWM, when Laura and Bobby bug out in the woods after shooting the Deer Meadow cop. Track 12 of Season Two soundtrack.


Used often with James and Evelyn as well.

Guy Quenneville wrote:-- Audrey's Prayer: This track, thus named on the Season Two soundtrack, and later turned into Questions in a World of Blue for FWWM, is really the musical backbone of season two, as it came to represent so many different things over time, and underwent so many variations. It makes its premiere in this episode in a subdued version playing under Major Briggs' description of his vision to Bobby in the Double R, and later as Harriet recites her poem during the family dinner with the Palmers. Over time, it will be played during: Audrey's prayer to Cooper at the end of Episode 8; Donna's discovery of Madeline's death in Episode 16; Leland's wake in Episode 17; Audrey's goodbye to Cooper in Episode 17; Briggs' return in Episode 19; and frequently played in later episodes of season two to represent Cooper's budding love for Annie, and in this fashion it is probably best known as its slower, jazzy variation from Episode 27, called Annie and Coope and rreleased on DL.com in March.


Certainly one of the most beautiful themes featured in the show. The "Original Version" (the one released on the soundtrack) is used quite often, its tempo varying a hair here and there. Its first appearance (in the Major & Bobby scene), is slowed down the most. The "Alternate Version" (not yet released) is only heard in episode 17 when Audrey says goodbye to Cooper, and in Leland's wake scene (where its mixed with other elements). Of course, as mentioned, there's the much different version heard during Annie & Cooper's dance (which is also heard briefly, first, in episode 22 when James confronts Evelyn).

Guy Quenneville wrote:-- Harold's Theme/The Living Novel: Donna offers to read her life story to Harold if he agrees to read from Laura's diary. Released on the Season Two soundtrack, but the CD omits the dark, more ominous extensions of the theme, as in Episode 12, when Harold's agoraphobia takes hold and the climax of the same episode, when Donna and Maddy's treachery prompts him to scar himself with a garden tool.


I'm hoping we get a longer version than the released version. There certainly seems to be more heard in the series. There's also the very lovely "Alternate Version" (still unreleased) heard only once when Josie tells Truman about her past.

Updated the guide with your notes.

FYI, every time I retroactively add notes to the guide, from here on in, I'll just be editing the guide on this page of the thread. I won't be re-posting the guide after I add new episodes; that would just be annoying, given the growing length of it.

Man From Another Place ;)


Oops - just fixed that. Thanks.

Gets a more lurid, significantly-slowed-down treatment in Episode 18, when Josie tells Truman about her past, that has not been released.

Appears again in Episode 19, when the Mayor weeps over his brother Dougie's dead body.


I think the scene in episode 19 is the only scene outside of the Harold story that its heard (not counting the "alt version" in the Josie/Truman scene). And actually, this shorter version in episode 19 is the version that was released on the second soundtrack. The longer extensions of the track from the Harold storyline remain unreleased.

Guy Quenneville wrote:-- Shelly: Shelly gets a nice theme here as she quits her job at the Double R; appropriately, it returns in Episode 22, when Shelly tells Norma she'd like to come back to work.


The scene where Norma is (loudly) cleaning the ice cream cone? The Twin Peaks theme actually plays in that scene.

Never noticed how that version is the soundtrack version. I'll update the guide.

I'll doublecheck that one...

Right you were, Ross. Twin Peaks Theme (Alternate) plays in that scene.

Added Episodes 20 and 21 to my guide on page 17.

Once I'm all done (including FWWM), I'm going to spruce it up, correct the typos and spelling mistakes and repost it in its finished form on the current page of this thread.

Thanks for the lists, Guy & Qbin!!! Great jobs!! Very much appreciated.

Guy Quenneville wrote:Double R Tune #1: Plays when Ed tells Norma he's in the doghouse. The most commonly played "source" cue in the Double R. Returns in Episode 15, when Norma's mom arrives, Episode 20, when Norma passes the note to a forlorn Ed: "We have to talk."; Episode 21, when Donna meets Evelyn at Wallies; and Episode 24, when Norma encourages Shelly to enter the Miss Twin Peaks pageant and Cooper meets Annie for the first time.

I'm still surprised this one was left off of the "RR Bundle"!! Hope we still get it. Also pops up in episode 12.

R 16. Western Ballad 28:50-30:46


Guy Quenneville wrote:Western Ballad (Double R Tune #2): Shelly and Norma talk about their troubles with men. Not a Double R tune that will get a lot of repeat plays (the scene in Episode 5 in which James introduces Maddy to Donna comes to mind), unlike Double R Tune #1 (see Episode 2), which will get played a lot.

Returns in Episode 27, where it is paired with Unease Motif #2 during an unsettling scene in which the camera ever-so-slowly pulls back from the image of Cooper enjoying a cup of coffee at the Double R while talking with Annie. The scene ends with image of coffee slowly dripping out of a broken saucer, foreshadowing the Man from Another Planet's experiments with coffee in the Black Lodge in Episode 29.

Hey guys- double check this one. The track titled "Secret Country" is the track heard in eps 4 & 5. While "Western Ballad" is the RR song from eps ep 11, 15 & the scene mentioned from ep 27.

Yep! Thank you! Renaming so many "RR tune No X" made me confused - first my numbers was different than Guy's, then the real names ;-)
Repaired ;-)

These are so great. I'm also thinking at some point I may try and list the music also by location. In example, all songs that played during scenes at the RR diner, Great Northern, One Eyed Jacks...

Although may be a while before I get the time but having these guides will make it very easy to come up with a comprehensive list.

Guy Quenneville wrote:-- Double R Tune #3: Played when Hank steals a lighter in the Double R, foreshadowing his eventual theft of the prosecutor's ID. Again in Episode 15, when Norma scolds Hank for being away (after he finally returns from his Audrey-Cooper-ransom adventure at the Roadhouse).

These are actually two different tracks. Here's a handy guide to the RR tunes:

RR Tune No 1 (played in the RR in episodes 3, 12, 15, 20 & 24, and at Wallies in episode 21)
Secret Country (RR Tune No 2) (played in the RR in episodes 4 & 5)
Picking On Country (RR Tune No 3) (played in the RR in episodes 6 & 19, and at the Roadhouse in episode 23)
RR Tune No 4 (played at One Eyed Jacks in episodes 6 & 12, at Wallies in episode 21, and in the RR in episode 26)
Western Ballad (RR Tune No 5) (played in the RR in episodes 11, 15 & 27)

I THINK this is all instances, but I could have missed some.
