The Twilight soundtrack has arrived and knowing author Stephenie Meyer’s adoration for Muse, it should be no surprise their Supermassive Black Hole leads off the CD.
But the true prize for the Twilight “theme” goes to Paramore and their video for Decode. The band is also a favorite of Meyer’s and their presence is felt on more than simply Decode. They also score a second track, I Caught Myself.
Great news to producers of the film: the soundtrack debuted at number one.
The standout of the Twilight soundtrack has to be Robert Pattinson, who portrays Edward. Director Catherine Hardwicke told SheKnows that she begged him to allow her to put the song on the soundtrack and he reluctantly agreed. Seems Pattinson is a little shy.
He shouldn’t be, his Never Think is one of the soundtrack’s standouts.
Other bands on the soundtrack include Linkin Park, Iron & Wine and Perry Farrell. It, like the book and film, is a don’t miss.
Twilight arrives in theaters November 21. Stay tuned to SheKnows for our Twilight week November 17 through 21 culminating in our review of the film. We’ve got interviews with all the stars!
Until then, enjoy the first single from Twilight, Paramore’s Decode:
