Music for Your WIP

When I was a kid, I used to follow a TV drama revolving around the murder of a local teen in its first season. Does anyone remember Twin Peaks? If I had to channel music for one of my recent WIPs, it would be the theme song for Twin Peaks. In my story, a recent high school grad is murdered. Though the "Who Killed Laura Palmer?" mystery and my WIP are two completely different stories, there is plenty of bizarre activity going on in both tales.
 
What music would go with your WIP?

To recognize the good ol' days when TV shows had theme songs, I leave you with this:

I never saw Twin Peaks, although I always wanted to - but 'Falling' by Julee Cruise, which is set to this theme tune, (I don't know which came first), is one of my favourite songs.

I saw bits and pieces of TP, and remember how bizarre and brilliant it was. I should rewatch this series. :)

I remember the everyone's excitement over Twin Peaks, but I never saw it myself.

I may have seen an episode or two. For some reason, it didn't register with me. I recall it being too bizarre, which surprises me now. I wonder if I'd appreciate it more at this age. :)

I like the idea of music providing a theme - i have nothing in mind at the moment which is (funnily enough) translating into me not being able to write something tonight. i think I am going to listen to some music and seek some inspiration :)

Happy A-Zing :)
