Today, we are celebrating the birthday of our very dear friend, Harry Dean Stanton. On this occasion, he has a present for us, for which we can't thank him enough: he put together a list of fifteen of his favorite songs! Harry has been one of the most committed collaborators of David Lynch since their first work together on "The Cowboy and the Frenchman" (1988), appearing in such major films as "Wild at Heart", "Fire Walk With Me", "The Straight Story" or "Inland Empire", among other projects. Lately, together with David Lynch, he appeared in John Carroll Lynch's "Lucky", in which he plays the titular role; he also reprised the role of Carl Rodd in Twin Peaks 2017 and gave a memorable performance. If you haven't seen it yet, do check out Sophie Huber's 2012 "Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction", a great documentary about Harry's life and career, in which he also sings quite a few songs.
Thank you, Mister Stanton. You were truly one of the greats.
