If you weren’t one of the people who helped “Breaking Dawn – Part 1” break $30 million at the box office before the sun even rose on Friday morning (Nov. 18), chances are that your inner “Twilight” fan will make you see the movie by the end of the weekend.
Just as in the previous “Twilight Saga” installments, the soundtrack of the latest film took a decidedly indie rock direction. While more well-known musicians like Bruno Mars and Christina Perri have tracks spotlighted in the film, there were songs from quite a few lesser-known artists.
So, which one was your favorite?
We were partial to the use of “Love Will Take You” by Angus & Julia Stone, though the new version of “Flightless Bird, American Mouth” by Iron & Wine over the wedding scene was a nice callback to the first “Twilight” movie.
Sleeping At Last‘s “Turning Page” during the sex scene (The Scene, if you will) was also pretty lovely. One thing we’re wondering — we were so bowled over by the film ending that we can’t remember which tune played over the punchy end credits (you know, before the secret scene and the Bruno Mars). Can anyone help?
Also — if you’ve seen the movie and can’t get the songs out of your head, you should definitely listen to the album on Spotify. It’s got bonus intros of each song by “Breaking Dawn” music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas.
