Mandy's Thoughts on the Eclipse Soundtrack

I have been listening all day - I really love this soundtrack and can't wait to get my Deluxe Edition :-)

Here are my thoughts. I did have predictions but I just can't bring myself to type them out. I ruin it fo rmyself if I grow too attached to a song and a scene then they don't connect.

Also I am not a music huru so I am speaking from my own connections & responses... feel free to comment below with your own :)

Eclipse Soundtrack List

1. Metric – “Eclipse (All Yours)”

I really love her voice & the lyrics. It's a gret song with a fitting title.

2. Muse – “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)”

Muse - hello? Obviously rad!

3. The Bravery – “Ours”

I love the sort of 80s/euro feel of this song... it's just great.

4. Florence + The Machine – “Heavy In Your Arms”

I think my most favourite song on the album. The beat, the music, the voice, the lyrics, the mood.... it's hot! It kind of reminds me of an old school Garbage Song (Romeo & Juliet Soundtrack) non? Emotion Wise it evokes it from me hard-core!

5. Sia – “My Love”

A bit slow and soft and high pitched for me but still beautiful, lying in the meadow, making out, NO! I said I wouldn't predict scenes ha ha!

6. Fanfarlo – “Atlas”

I love the up-beat tempo of this song. The two voices really compliment each other also.

7. The Black Keys – “Chop And Change”

Oh My God I really really LOVE this song, it's just so groovy... I picture Victoria seducing Riley or fight training maybe? I don't know it's just a great song

8. The Dead Weather - “Rolling In On A Burning Tree”

I feel repeatitive but another great song... the mood and beat are just fantastic, I think it's Jacob and Bella(full moon, not what you want to hear, a long time to wait etc.) or maybe Bella trying to get Edward to change her.... but I think Jacob/Bella more... god, I said I wouldn't predict publicly

9. Beck and Bat For Lashes – “Let’s Get Lost”

This is so pretty it reminds me of a song from 'The Beach' soundtrack, just mystical.... I love it

10. Vampire Weekend – “Jonathan Low”

Another sort of retor-feel, 80s vibe, reminds me of "dancing with myself" ha habut anyways, it's awesome also - big surprise, this whole soundtrack is!

11. UNKLE – “With You In My Head (featuring The Black Angels)”

The whispery mumbles are weird, but I can see it fitting in well with this soundtrack. Can't wait to see where it fits into the movie

12. Eastern Conference Champions – “A Million Miles An Hour”

Love the opening bass, his voice, just another great song

13. Band Of Horses – “Life On Earth”

Pretty. Calming. Like happy family reunion after risky battle?

14. Cee-Lo Green – “What Part Of Forever”

Whistling is catchy though whistling annoys me ha ha - besides that though, really like the song.

15. Howard Shore – “Jacob’s Theme”

Obviously this is a Jacob scene & Howard hore is Canadian and did Olympics Themes song composing so I pretty much love him and it anyways. Better than Bella's Lullabye? Time will tell? ha ha

16. Battle - "The Line"

Battle Stuff? It's pretty good, reminds me of like "The Doors" at parts and just like I should be on drugs to listen too with the tempo changes and whatnot... but cool

17. Bombay Bicycle Club - "How Can You Swallow So Much"

Apparently I am a dity bird because this title makes me think twice. The song is repeatitive but very good.

Seriously I can't get enough - I love all the songs, I hate thsat my mind is already placing them in certain scenes. Which are your fave? Scene Placement Predictions?

For some reason, I think Heavy in your Arms is tied to the tent scene -- the part where Bella kisses Jake and then also when she feels bad afterward as she has to face Edward. The feeling I get when I listen to it reminds me of when I read the book... tense.

They could also play it when Bella goes to visit Jacob at the end to tell her it's Edward.

Tied to Jake makes sense to me b/c for him, Bella was a "heavy heart to carry, but he never let her down."
