The Movies: If I have to explain them to you, we clearly aren’t living on the same planet. Either way, whether you’re a fan, or not, you can’t dispute that the Twilight series has brought in some musical powerhouses to help them out. Stephenie Meyer, author of the beloved series has said music has always strongly influenced her writing, so much that she created her own playlist for the book while writing it. As the book became transferred to the big screen so did some of its musical influences. So, as we bid farewell here’s a look back at some of the best songs that helped tell the Twilight tale.
The Soundtracks: Over the past 5 years they’ve snagged some indie household names and have helped emerging artists launch their careers. Not to mention, they were all scored by composing legends Carter Burwell, Howard Shore and Alexandre Desplat. (If you don’t recognize their names Google their track record, pun intended.) The series fostered a great collection of incredibly talented musicians with raw, hauntingly emotional rock ballads and head-bumping beats. So while Twi-hards watch the series end with a bitter taste in their mouths, at least they’ll be leaving with a good taste in music.
“Heavy In Your Arms” by Florence & The Machine
“My Love” by Sia
“Rolling In On A Burning Tire” by The Dead Weather
“Chop & Change” by The Black Keys (My personal favourite because it wasn’t released anywhere else.):
