Well, I think the point is this:  Why that particular song?  Obviously
it reminded him of Laura in some way.  It may not be a "strange" song
but it's also not one you hear a lot anymore either.

It may not be the case that the song "symbolizes" anything, but it seems
that every little thing in this series is there for a reason.  Lynch
is too artsy to just toss things in here and there without thinking.  In 
that sense, _everything_ is significant, if only to set a particular mood.
