Falling - D. Twins

When the television series 'Twin Peaks' hit the screens in the early Nineties, it was a sensation. Not only was I in awe of the series, but the music, composed by Angelo Badalamenti, and the songs, performed by Julee Cruise, were wonderful as well. Of course, I bought the soundtrack and the single 'Falling' as soon as I could.

Then, during a holiday in Austria, I found a cd-single by the D. twins, also entitled 'Falling'. After I bought the cd-single, it turned out to be a weird dance version of the track, performed by an anonymous group of dj's and/or producers. My friend Puck turned up a second cd-single a few months later. And then, a few months after that, I found this 12" single. Made in Italy, the label promised four remixes which incidentally all proved to be on the cd-singles anyway. But upon playing the disc, I found out that the actual playlist was a bit shorter: it contained two remixes that were not mentioned on the label at all! And these two were on the cd-singles as well. How confusing. I guess this is a collector's item of sorts.

My collection: 12" single no. 233
Found: Record fair, Amsterdam, January 1994
Cost: 5 guilders
Tracks (on label): 'Falling (Twin club mix)', 'Falling (10 dance mix)' / 'Falling (Peaks version)', 'Falling (Meditation mix)'
Tracks (actual): 'Falling (Club mix)' / 'Falling (New version remix)'
