I didn't LOVE Twilight. In fact, I thought the bulk of it was laughable, but Edward is so dreamy and the love he has for Bella is one that would make any girl (even this one) go weak in the knees. The one element of this movie that was flawless was its soundtrack. Man, that Stephenie Meyer can channel vampires through music with the best of them!
I decided to find out when the New Moon soundtrack would be available, and it's up for presale on Amazon. The track listing hold tremendous potential!
|1. Meet Me On the Equinox, Death Cab for Cutie|
|2. Friends, Band of Skulls|
|3. Hearing Damage, Thom Yorke|
|4. Possibility, Lykke Li|
|5. A White Demon Love Song, The Killers|
|6. Satellite Heart, Anya Marina|
|7. I Belong To You (New Moon Remix), Muse|
|8. Rosyln, Bon Iver & St. Vincent|
|9. Done All Wrong, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club|
|10. Monsters, Hurricane Bells|
|11. The Violet Hour, Sea Wolf|
|12. Shooting the Moon, OK Go|
|13. Slow Life, Grizzly Bear (with Victoria Legrand)|
|14. No Sound But the Wind, Editors|
|15. New Moon (The Meadow), Alexandre Desplat|
I think I'm most excited for the collaborative effort of Bon Iver and St. Vincent - I predict it will be spectacular! If you haven't listened to either, they are both at the top of my "most played" playlist. And I'm officially announcing I have more anticipation for the soundtrack than the actual movie (but I'm still excited to see how the songs mesh with the scenes). The countdown for November 20th begins...
