I know, I know. A lot of people love to hate the Twilight series. And even though I read each volume & went to the midnight show of every new film, I’ll admit that the books & movies has serious plot & character issues. I’m okay with that. We all need a little fluff in our lives from time to time.
But no matter how you feel about the content of the Twilight series, you should really give a listen to the soundtracks that accompany the movies, especially if you like alternative & indie rock.
My favorite track from the Breaking Dawn: Part One album is Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years. I actually saw the lyric version of the music video on YouTube before I ever knew it was associated with the movie. I can certainly understand why they chose it. The romantic lyrics, the lilting melody. It’s perfect for a wedding song and a good part of the album is essentially Bella & Edward’s wedding playlist. It even has a waltz time signature!*
