Blue Velvet ‐ Bobby Vinton

Bobby Vinton - Blue Velvet (1963)

Q. Did Bobby Vinton’s version of the song ‘Blue Velvet’ inspire the movie?

David Lynch: It was the song that sparked the movie! Bernie Wayne [& Lee Moris] wrote that song in the early 50s….Bobby Vinton’s version was the first one I ever heard. I don’t know what it was about that song, because it wasn’t the kind of music that I really liked. But there was something mysterious about it.

It made me think about things. And the first things I thought about were lawns - lawns and the neighborhood. It’s twilight - with maybe a streetlight on, let’s say, so a lot of it is in shadow. And in the foreground is part of a car door, or just a suggestion of a car, because it’s too dark to see clearly. But in the car is a girl with red lips. And it was these red lips, blue velvet and those green-black lawns of a neighborhood that started it.”

-excerpted from Lynch on Lynch
