Lynch went on to say that it might be a good time to appreciate all the good music she made and remember her as a great singer, musician, and a great human being.

Its instrumental, created by Angelo Badalamenti, was used as the theme of Lynch’s iconic TV show Twin Peaks, which premiered in 1990.
Lynch penned the lyrics for Cruise’s vocal version, which charted at No. 7 in the UK, topped the European singles chart, and topped the Australian singles chart. It was published in 1989 as part of her debut album, Floating Into the Night. Cruise, who was born in Iowa in 1956, first worked with Lynch in 1986 for his film Blue Velvet, which featured her Badalamenti duet Mysteries of Love. In 1990, she co-starred with Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern in David Lynch’s avant-garde theatre play Industrial Symphony No 1 as The Dreamself of the Heartbroken Woman.
The musician also appeared as a character in Twin Peaks, singing in the town’s bar and in its movie spin-off titled Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. Julee also appeared in Twin Peaks: The Return, Lynch’s third season of the show, in 2017. Later, in 2018, the singer was diagnosed with lupus and complained of chronic pain. Her sudden death has indeed shattered many hearts. We extend our deepest condolences to her family.
