Breaking Dawn Sountrack Sets the Tone for the Film
If there is one thing that measures up to the grandeur and popularity of the Twilight Saga, it has to be its soundtracks. Since the premiere of first film, the saga’s music has won over fans and critics alike. The soundtrack to ‘Breaking Dawn Part 1’ is no exception.
All the songs on the album create their own love story. The tunes are upbeat without being obnoxious, lovely without being gimmicky, alternative without being indie, and catchy without being overdone.
The first few songs on the album are “Endtapes” by The Joy Formidable, “Love will take you” by Angus and Julia Stone, and “It will Rain” by Bruno Mars. These three songs are clearly in sync, all containing poetic lyrics and wonderful rhythms, a perfect mix for a love story.
“Turning the Page,” by Sleeping at Last and “A Thousand Years,” by Christina Perri, are obvious love letters. Each song is addressed to a specific individual, speaking to them in a beautiful way.
“From Now On,” by The Features, is also a love song, but of a different kind. Its melodies are adventurous and fun, a perfect road trip song. “Neighbors,” by Theoplis London, on the other hand, is an interesting surprise. It’s a melodic rap accompanied by a background chorus.
“I Didn’t Mean It,” by the Belle Brigade, and “Sister Rosetta” by Noisettes are both female anthems with a combination of drums, intense instrumentals, and strong female vocals.
“Flightless bird, American Mouth” by Iron and Wine is the most important song on the soundtrack. This beautiful melody is Edward and Bella’s wedding song. Get ready for all the oohs and ahhs in the theater when this song begins to play.
If the movie follows the beauty found in these songs, it will surely be an unforgettable love story.
