What’s the Scoop on the Next Twilight Soundtrack?

Jan 29th, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Merchandise, Movie News

E! Online has an article on what goes into soundtrack selection here!

“The new director, Chris Weitz, has been sending out signals that he may be open to a more experimental soundtrack than his predecessor. That could mean songs that sparkle even more than the movie’s vampires when they get caught in the sun.

“I think that might be the way it’s going,” says Marisa Baldi, West Coast partner for Zync, a music brokerage that funneled two songs onto the Twilight soundtrack. “I get the vibe that the guy is a little more into being surprised…everything is really open, and he wants to hear a lot of cool music.”

    way cool, I love it! hope they put more rob on!

  2. Sarah says:

    I hope that means more songs that are relatable to the movie and plot! The first soundtrack was amazing but didn’t really have songs that pertained to the plot! Also it would be cool to see if any of the other actors sing or could help with finding songs for new moon! I am soooooo excited about the new movie! Soundtrack better be good is all I have to say! : )

    That really doesn’t surprise me. I read Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist and just saw the movie recently (finally) and Chris Weitz was actually one of the producers.

    I absolutely loved the Twilight soundtrack and if they can keep some of the songs that inspired Stephenie Meyer while she was writing like they did with Twilight, then I’ll be super psyched for the New Moon soundtrack too.

  6. Tiffany C. says:

    ohh how awesome! i love crazy music! xD

  7. Amy says:

    Carter Burwell?
    Come on man, create “Raising Arizona” for Twilight. haha!

    What Hurts the Most- Rascall Flatts
    We Are Broken- Paramore
    When It Rains- Paramore
    Breathe- Taylor Swift
    Forever & Always- Taylor Swift
    Waiting Here- Kate Alexa

    This is my current New Moon playlist. It’s not done, and my Twilight playlist definitely has more songs, but this one’s got variety. You’ve got Country, Rock, and Pop, and no Robert Pattinson. He’s hot, but he can”t sing (Plus Taylor, Kellan, Cam, Jackson, and Michael are GORGEOUS!)

  9. Ashley says:

    I disagree, i think Robert is a great singer, and i would love it if he would have more songs on the New Moon soundtrack, but i don’t think he will. i don’t know, we’ll see

    more paramore and muse would be great too.
    i just hope they make it as awesome as twilight’s soundtrack.

  10. Cassidy says:

    oops the 8) should be 8.


  14. Vamp Girl & Wolf Girl says:

    First, we say no Taylor Swift. We hear enough of her as it is and we don’t like any of it. Second, country has no place in this story, so Rascal Flatts is out. Third, something by Paramore, Robert Pattinson, and Muse should definitely be on there. Can’t wait for New Moon!!!!!!! *Woof!* (Hee, hee)!

  15. Daniella says:

    that one of my inmortal and going under form evanescence pfff they are just PERFECT!!! and yes please muse, linkin par [pleaseeeee] paramore and rob!! because maybe for some of you hes not a good singer but the lyrics are soooo goood! thay are like soul songs you know…
    what hurts the most from rascal flatts awwww i love that song!!
    and i think that they should put some of the songs that stephenie thought when she was wrting in her podcast there are some and dear god! thay are sooo good! hahha

  16. Carly says:

    Vamp Girl & Wolf Girl: i don’t particularly think Taylor Swift (and David Archuleta) should be on the NM soundtrack. i just thought the lyrics of “Breathe” and “Somebody Out There” fit NM. (in my opinion.) and also, the version of “What Hurts the Most” that is on my ipod is by Rascal Flatts. i agree that country is out, but the song works, so if someone (Rob, perhaps?) covers it, i would be super happy, and THEN it could go on the soundtrack.


  17. Shteff! says:

    irm…i’ts a bit early isn’t it?

  18. Shteff! says:

    Breathe By Breaking Benjamin btw XD

  19. Alice says:

    i am glad he is going in a bit of a different direction with the soundtrack…. this one was great but almost none of the songs actually went with the movie, they just sounded cool. I do think that he should stick with paramore and muse because i think they have kind of turned into the music faces of twilight. i also think that if the song my immortal by evanescence doesn’t make it on there i am going to go into a spiraling depression!
