"In Heaven" from David Lynch's Eraserhead

And now, an uplifting message from the Lady In The Radiator. (via The Art of Memory)


  1. Yes, I’m aware that the song has been covered by The Pixies, Bauhaus, Devo, etc. They’re very nice, but they just aren’t… this.

  2. edit: ok, someone beat me to the link of the pixies’ version. but i love the original best.

    interestingly, the set design for their reunion tour was comprised of three spindly fake trees on little wheeled platforms, not too terribly far removed from this one:

  3. I recommend the book on the guy who wrote the song and was mysteriously murdered, Peter Ivers. It’s called “In Heaven Everything Is Fine: The Unsolved Life of Peter Ivers and the Lost History of New Wave Theatre”

  4. Haha, I’d just favorited this song on YouTube a week ago. It’s a classic that’s haunted me since my middle school days. But why not the actual scene with the Lady of the Puffy Cheeks singing the song for us?

    It’s way creepier.

  5. It’s a great song. I too made a cover of this song. It’s a little weird I guess, but I did it (even if I did get the lyrics ever so slightly wrong) So I present to you the Snarf version : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTxfU88Wjd8
