“Gettin’ Down in Breaking Dawn: Scenes & Songs Contest” Day 6!

Jul 8th, 2011 | By | Category: Contests, Fandom, Featured Articles, Music, Videos

Today is the LAST day!

Everybody has songs or artists they’d love to see on the Breaking Dawn Part 1 soundtrack, and we’re gonna give you the chance to share who YOU think should be on the soundtrack. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the next two weeks, we will post a scene from Breaking Dawn that we’re looking forward to seeing and then give our choices for what song we think would fit that scene! And we want you to tell us your picks for those scenes as well! Oh, did I mention we’re also doing a giveaway? Yep! In order to be entered, comment with your song and/or artist choice in the comment section on each post. The giveaway is international and one random commenter per day will win a Twilight t-shirt! There will be 6 winners total! Check out the picks for days one, two, three, four and five!

Today’s Scene: It’s a free-for-all! Did we leave out a scene from Breaking Dawn Part 1 that you’re dying to see?! Let us know which one you’re looking forward to, and what song you think goes with it!

Stefanie- I think this first song would work for a pre-wedding scene. Maybe a scene like the still released a few weeks back where the two of them are packing up her room. And everyone needs a little Fleet Foxes in their life. “The Shrine/An Argument” would work in a scene when one of the characters is getting all introspective & reflective. As for the last song, Kallie and I were talking about how we were surprised none of us had used a Civil Wars song yet, so I added one. And the Adele song…I think it’s Leah’s anthem! hahah

Kallie ~ I think a strong song like Letters From the Sky by Civil Twilight should be included on the Breaking Dawn Soundtrack. There are so many amazing rhythms throughout the song… I can think of a few ways it could be used for different scenes and/or characters in the book!

Krystal: My first choice today is City & Colour’s “Waiting.” I think the lyrics are perfect for Jacob’s feelings, knowing the love of his life is lost to him. I also love The Perisher’s “Never Bloom Again.” I think that one could cover a couple of different scenes, especially the lyric “I know we’ll grow, but we’ll never bloom again.” That could be fit for Jacob and Bella’s relationship, the wolf pack’s break-up, or Bella being changed and being stuck in that state forever. Finally, I’ve chosen “What Can I Do?” by Rufus Wainwright (on Antony & the Johnsons album). Rufus’ songs are just genius and simply incredible, and I am in love with everything that he does. This song reminds me of what Edward might be feeling watching Bella suffer through the agony of her pregnancy and feeling at a loss as to what to do. Hope you like! :)

    My song choice is not really an original one, but its a song that I think should be included for one particluar scene: Edward and Bella’s dance at the wedding reception. The song should be ” Flightless Bird, American Mouth” by Iron and Wine, same as their first dance at the prom in Twilight. It’s a great way to tie the movies together.

  2. Amanda says:

    The song Skinny Love by Bon Iver. For Jacob when he sees that Bella is pregnate and basically dieing to have the baby. He just knows that this are destined to fail and this song puts lyrics and music to it.

  3. Diana says:

    When Jacob saw Resmenee for first time, I belong to you – Lenny Kravitz. I believe with this scene Breaking Dawn Part 1 ends.

  4. Sandra says:

    Feels Like Home by Chantal Kreviazuk for their first dance as a married couple at the wedding! I love this song and it goes perfectly

  5. Katicia O'meara says:

    I think Set Fire to the Rain by Adele
    would be the perfect ending song.
    It should be included in tnhe soundtrack.

    i think this one will be the best The Shrine / An Argumentould i cant tell u how many times i read all the book r how many time i watch all the movies over and over i think im your #1 fan thanks for giving us such a good story its just the best

  7. Dianne says:

    This would be good

  8. Erin says:

    For when edward and bella dance at the wedding or reception I think maybe the only exception by paramore because it kinda goes with the movies or flightless bird because it’s the first song they danced to :) so can’t wait! Love the whole series! :)

    Better late than never…congrats to the winners! These are great choices and I like the idea of using their prom song as the first dance at the wedding. Good thought! I personally would love to see the Boxer Rebellion do something for the soundtrack and I know this is going to sound cheesy, but I loved that song in Jennifer’s Body called Through the Trees. Is Low Shoulder a real band? I never heard of them before.

    I know they don’t use songs that are already out, but this would be great for scene when they are waiting for Bella to come around from “unconciousness”
