    Mystery Train


    I've always wanted to go to Memphis. I love its musical history, I love Sun Studios; I love Elvis.

    It's romantic to dream about the ghosts of its past still living there in some way. You go to Memphis and soak up its fabled streetfronts; you slick back your hair and imagine you're in Elvis' footsteps, the ringing of "Mystery Train" or "Baby Let's Play House" like electricity in your ears; and just like that that there's an invisible magic…

I think it's primarily just an example of Lynch being way ahead of the curve, and thankfully its modern day re-appraisal is testimony to such. The legacy of the show itself was probably somewhat of a curse too, but then again nothing here was particularly 'new' - it had just never been shown so graphically dark, absent from the comfort of the soap opera…
