Due to the announcement of the new series, the cast and crew have been separated into a second list:
Welcome to Twin Peaks: Cast & Crew

A list containing releases and artists related to Twin Peaks tv-series and the movie Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. Included are official soundtrack releases, some unofficial releases, tracks inspired by Twin Peaks, tracks including material from Twin Peaks, and cover tracks.

This is a work in progress, I guess forever probably. Additions and more information always welcome... Note that I do not have all these releases (I wish I had!), and I haven't even personally been able to confirm all these, so if you have more information concerning a specific release or track, feel free to contact me. Also feel free to suggest new tracks or releases.

A huge thank you to all the users who have gone through the trouble of adding some of this information to Discogs; as well as to all the residents of the Twin Peaks Gazette discussion forum and Rate Your Music, and www.welcometotwinpeaks.com.

Kudos to NaturalBornDancers, trance-of-the-ages, TwinPowerForce, GruenerTee, zin, ksdfjsldfj, Plastic-Man for new additions.

Last, but not the least, minor spoiler alert. ;)

  7. David Lynch / Angelo Badalamenti - Industrial Symphony No. 1 : The Dream Of The Broken Hearted

    Julee Cruise sings on tracks 1, 2, 4, 8 and 10. These songs are all from her first album, Floating Into The Night (1989), apart from track 1, which is from her second album, Voice Of Love (1993). They are the normal, studio recordings - the songs are mimed. One recording, "Rocking Back Inside My Heart", is also featured in Twin Peaks (for which Cruise recorded a vocal version of the theme).

    Michael J. Anderson (known for his role as the small, dancing Man From Another Place on Twin Peaks) is featured on track 3, patiently sawing a log of wood to Badalamenti's discordant music. He is also part of the stage ensemble on track 5 (instrumental), along with a tall, demonic reindeer-like figure. Finally, on track 6, he reiterates the opening dialogue between Cage and Dern, accompanied by a clarinet-player and a non-speaking actress playing Dern's part.
