Here’s a gorgeous cover of a song written for David Lynch’s movie Blue Velvet. A bunch of musicians headed over to 2fm for Donal Dineen’s Christmas shows that he was hosting. Conor O’Brien played a couple songs on Christmas eve, including ‘Mysteries Of Love’. I don’t think there are many voices that could make me tear up but Conor definitely owns one of them. It’s a beautiful song, perfectly captured, but of course, by Myles ‘Arbutus Yarns’ O’Reilly. The song was written by David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti for Blue Velvet. Watch the scene here. “That’s why he’s top of our Christmas wishlist this year,” Dineen proclaims at the end. Simply magical.
