    I finally listened to whole thing. I have to admit I never thought the sound track was one of the Twilight franchise’s was ever a problem. Yet I sometimes don’t think the two things match. Not that I was expecting a lot of manic or angry rap or rebellion metal.

    If you excuse” I Didn’t Mean It” by the The Belle Brigade or Bruno Mars, “It Will Rain”, the sound track is packed with soft (as opposed to hard) comtemplative songs that to my mind contradict the movie. Because if you spend a lot of time thinking about, you might make hard to finish watching the movies. Of course I haven’t heard the entire soundtrack.

    I guess this is one of the contractions of the franchise, it promotes one thing yet wants another.

    I’ve heard interviews where Jackson Rathbone talks about his band but oddly he isn’t on the soundtrack. Has he ever been? I could be wrong but when Rober t Pattinson was on the sound track you had the illusion that a lot of the themes of the movies actually transcended his actual beliefs. You did not choose one of his songs to present, so he must not be on the soundtrack.

    Ultimately his absence might be better for not promoting Robsten.

        I’m not much one for rap, but the rest of the soundtrack I enjoyed. However, where they place a song in a particular scene can sometimes take away from the enjoyment of the song.

        I still haven’t seen the film yet, so I am interested to see where they place each particular song. I still don’t get why they picked a political song for the prom/wedding dance song. Go figure.

          I don’t know whether she will describe it, but Open Book has this opinion about the use of music in melodrama’s that I hope she will express. I think it may produce an understanding regarding the choice of music in Twilight that I previously had not thougt of. It may add to an understanding of “Breaking Dawn” as well.

          She saw the film.
