ECLIPSE Soundtrack Song by Song Review!

1. Metric “Eclipse (All Yours)” – Very Catchy and lyrics that really mesh well with the presence of the movie. We believe this might be Bella’s theme for the movie. Placement might be found towards the end of the movie after all the fight scenes, etc.

2. Muse “Neutron Star Collision ( Love is Forever)” – Heidi & Lauren have been a HUGE Muse fans before the Twilight Saga threw them into ultra popularity domestically here in the US. So naturally, we were excited to see what they would bring the fans for this 3rd movie in the series. The sound is very reminiscent of their latest album, futuristic sounds with an 80’s pop feel to it with some Beethoven thrown in at the end. We can’t really see the song fitting in any particular scene, so it will probably be in the ending credits.

3. The Bravery “Ours” -This is a song that we can see fans rocking out to whether it be in their living room, seeing the band in concert or at a Twilight Convention. It’s tune is very energetic and could possibly be in the graduation scene or the graduation party at the Cullens.

4. Florence + The Machine “Heavy in your Arms”: LOVE LOVE LOVE! This song had us captivated from the very beginning and meshes well with the entire theme of ‘Eclipse’.Very edgy and has the undertones of Queen meets Evanescence meets Gospel-esque dramatic vocals. This song wins the award for “Most Likely to be on Repeat”.

5. Sia “My Love” – Initial reaction was that the beginning of the sound sounded like background music that seamlessly moves with the movie. Fans might have seen it in a previous trailer or TV Spot. Could be featured in a meadow scene or after the proposal. Very instrumental and we feel it’s the Lykke Li “Possibility” of this Soundtrack.

6. Fan Farlo “Atlas” – Heavy drum beats meets ukulele. Not much to really describe about this song other than it was a catchy tune. We don’t have a particular scene that this would fit in.

7. The Black Keys “Chop and Change” – Our immediate thought was that this was what Muse’s song SHOULD have sounded like. Edgy beat that had a lead singer with a Bob Dylan like voice. Very short song compared to others.

8. The Dead Weather “Rolling in on a Burning Tire” – Definitely the theme song for the Newborns coming out of the water or Major Fight scene. Jack White reveals his geniusousness ( definitely NOT a word but just go with it) once again and Alison’s voice is very haunting yet appealing. Infectious beats with some of the oddest background sounds.

9. Beck and Bat for Lashes ” Let’s Get Lost”- Sounds like a remix of an early 90’s club beat song. Very catchy and reminds us of Thom Yorke with it’s roughness and eclectic beats. This is definitely an Edward and Bella song and we predict that it will be in the “Leg Hitch” scene.

10. Vampire Weekend “Jonathon Low”- Fans of Vampire Weekend will not be disappointed with the band’s contribution to this Soundtrack. They stay very true to their original sound but with softer lyrics. It has an upbeat feel with a Rock/Opera meets Italian “Night out on the town”.

11. Unkle “With You in My Head (featuring The Black Angels)” – Not a huge fan of this song. It reminds us of a 60’s Hawaii- 5-0 song with a slight Radiohead undertone.

12. Eastern Conference Champions ” A Million Miles an Hour” – Very reminiscent of Stone Temple Pilots. It’s catchy but only for transitional purposes somewhere in this movie. Again, not a huge favorite.

13. Band of Horses ” Life on Earth”- Overall it was a great song. Not a lot a lyrics, more of an instrumental sort of song. Nevertheless, we would have liked to have seen it more upbeat towards the end. Possible scene: When Jacob breaks all the bones in his body or just a Jacob song in general.

14. Cee Lo Green “What Part of Forever” – We love this song just as much as Florence + The Machine. It was refreshing to hear this song after a few low key SLOW songs. It’s a uniquely catchy and addictive song that fans will really appreciate and rock out to. It wins our award for “Most Surprising Song on the Soundtrack”.

15. Howard Shore “Jacob’s Theme”- This song’s basis is quite sad and heartbreaking, which could easily go along with Jacob’s feelings at seeing Edward and Bella together, etc. However, the song doesn’t stick out like Alexandre Desplat’s “The Meadow” from the ‘New Moon’ Soundtrack.
