Twilight Soundtrack Tracklist Announced
I was overflowing with excitement when a friend of mine told me that StephenieMeyer.com had posted the full track list for the Twilight movie soundtrack this morning. Twilight, the film adaptation of the book by the same name by author Stephenie Meyer is due to hit theaters on November 21 and its soundtrack will hit store shelves on November 4. The following is the official track list as reported by StephenieMeyer.com:
- Muse — Supermassive Black Hole
- Paramore — Decode
- The Black Ghosts — Full Moon
- Linkin Park — Leave Out All The Rest
- MuteMath — Spotlight (Twilight Mix)
- Perry Farrell — Going All The Way (Into The Twilight)
- Collective Soul — Tremble For My Beloved
- Paramore — I Caught Myself
- Blue Foundation — Eyes On Fire
- Rob Pattinson — Never Think
- Iron & Wine — Flightless Bird, American Mouth
- Carter Burwell — Bella’s Lullaby
The soundtrack of the film has been something of particular interest to me since one of the reasons I started reading the Twilight saga was to create soundtracks for each book. Inspired by the friend of mine who turned me on to the books and the fact that I thought Stephenie Meyer’s playlist for the books were awful, I have completed soundtracks for Twilight and New Moon and will do the same for Eclipse and Breaking Dawn once I’ve finished reading them.
A few months back I looked on Amazon.com to see if I could find any details on the film’s soundtrack. At the time they had Stephenie Meyers’ playlist displayed as the soundtrack for the film. A few weeks later this was taken down and replaced with “Track Listing Coming Soon”. Since then the only interesting tidbit of soundtrack information to surface was the involvement of Paramore on the soundtrack and the news that they would be contributing two songs written exclusively for the film.
I now see that the most likely reason there hasn’t been a lot of buzz surrounding the films soundtrack until now is probably due to its lackluster track list. The only thing new the soundtrack brings to the table are the two Paramore tracks, Perry Farrell’s Going All The Way (Into The Twilight), and Rob Pattinson’s Never Think. Sadly I won’t be running out to purchase the soundtrack on the day of its release the way I will be purchasing tickets for the film.
