Steely1919 : At some points, this actually feels like a scene from the show :)

Propane : Wow! Goosebumps... He is one hell of a storyteller.

alphaphotoandvideo : the way he narrates the story is just amazing

Reviews On Ice : "Oh, that's it!.. Oh, that's so beautiful... Angelo... Oh, that's tearing my heart out...I love that..Just keep that going..."

Gabriel Schiavinatti : I've elected this the best video on youtube.

Carls Lobato : The heart on this man must be bigger than his head

mlongpre100 : this guy looks like he would be very finicky about his espresso

Emanuel Preta : Angelo Badalamenti wrote "Laura Plamer's Theme," in one take? That is an amazing achievement.

Ryan F : His explanation as he plays is awesome, creepy, and hilarious at the same time, just like Twin Peaks.

Vivienne Gucwa : Have watched this video 1000 times or more over the years. The most inspiring video.

sumixer : there is one word to describe angelo and david: genius

Crystalpilot : Brings a tear to my eye. So good.

jayrobb9 : I think I can officially call this my favourite video on YouTube. It's decided!

Pečený sněhulák Fans Tube : this is the life, emotions, feelings and instinct.

Juiche : OH ANGELO

Daniel Gadomski : That's how I feel it, it's like a connection of souls beetwen creator(s) and the perceiver. Angelo and David really took me to these damned woods. And I saw a wonderful girl, a girl that I could fall in love with. I would take her out of these dark, evil woods. But I can't. No one could save her. That's Twin Peaks to me.

Fiorella Constanza Valente : "And I said: slower, David?... OK"

APodbayDoor : 2:01 I love how he describes the transition when he "segwayed". The note changes almost bring a tear to my eyes

Martin Hennessee : "You're tearing my heart out, Angelo!"  I love this clip. :) So great to get this insight into how their creative minds worked together!

Ramperhappy : Fantastic to see how a director and a musician both can envision the same vibe/setting

Gabriel Schleifer : That C major chord always felt to me like the musical equivalent of someone finally passing the verge of tears. The tragedy is just too much and all their grief and sadness comes pouring out of them. Hell, it SOUNDS like crying!

yuri bregoli : the way he plays that climax at god! he's so into it, soul and body emotionally fused together: that's MUSIC :')

Jim Clark : videos like this make YouTube necessary.

Oskari Laaksonen : One of the best director-composer pairings ever. Right up there with Fellini-Rota, Hitchcock-Herrmann & Leone-Morricone.

Sydney O'Bier : I just love how every time something tense happened in the show you'd hear that synth, and at the end of every episode. Great stuff.

Patzino : Twin Peaks was amazing tv-show, best of all time & for me im pretty sure it will keep its number one spot forever. Everything about it was so perfect, characters, script, location, time(90`s) and specially its soundtrack. Twin Peaks is much more than just tv-show, its almost like one part of my life that really happened and i was one part of its happenings. Thank you Mr.Lynch, Frost, Badalamenti & cast for giving us this experience.

Ruby Quijano : this makes me cry ..

Santiago Aner : This guy is a genius!

Nathan Wisbey : "That's so beautiful Angelo, oh that's tearing my heart out!" Watching this is a truly moving experience. That's Twin Peaks...

mark13 : Maestro Badalamenti - Twin Peaks the most beautiful soundtrack ever.

lulubeloo : why do i have this on repeat?

oldNobodaddy : Angelo Badalamenti is the secret sauce of Twin Peaks.

NIИ SIN LIES : goosebumps 2:00 to 3:00

emil1708 : I have been coming back to this video for years now. It's amazing.

Marcílio Reis : OH ANGELO!!!

Jake : I love the passion of this guy!


Ronny Perez : That's tearing MY heart out, too!

Patrick Gogan : This guy is a genius awesome music every time

Keegan Colton : Priceless interview; a master giving us a glimpse into two peoples' creative genius!

Mike Ehrmantraut : just wooow what an artist

BlackearacheXD : This is such a beautifully constructed song. When I was first getting into Twin Peaks and every time this song would play I honestly hated it and thought it was a terrible cheesy song. But the more it occurs you realize it's importance to the setting of the show and how each section weaves into each other so cleverly. Just like the show, the more you get into to it or even think about the show you grow more affection for it. Fantastic show and song.

Trollbaiter : I would kill for an animated version of this.

Brandon Pernice : This is equivalent to a magician telling you how he did a magic trick.

Paralyzer : What a pro Doesent even look at the piano. He plays with his eyes closed. Unbelivable

Rekaert : Well, I came to hear Angelo play the tune. Didn't expect the walk-through of the process too much. Expected less to actually like it. Really interesting, and quite moving.

Yokai Noroi : This is so beautiful. So Angelo and David had their first homosexual experience right then and there?... nah, really, this is is beautiful.

Esteban Uriona : Wow, a 4 min masterclass

johnnyboy562 : his music really tied it all together
