David Lynch has the power to make a perfectly nice song seem terrifying as hell.
This ability to make the conventional seem creepy is pretty much characteristic of all his work – the Prom Queen with a horrifying double life, the perfect suburb with a wriggling and dirty underbelly and a beautiful actress with a sinister secret. You don't know what's real and what's fake, and nothing is as it seems.
