Eclipse soundtrack time… *smh*


It’s that time again. Yes – time for another Twilight film to come out. I like the books. I like the films. I like the soundtracks. I hate the tweens. I hate the hype. And I really hate how the tweens think these bands are brand spanking new. No they’re not. Most of them have had longer careers than you have been alive. And I hate how much they swoon over R-Patz. Yes he is dreamy (I’m team Edward, not Jacob, deal with it.) And yes, I swoon over him too. But the difference between me and the tweens is – I’M THE SAME AGE AS R-PATZ. You, however, are jail-bait.

Anyway, the listing of the soundtrack has been released this week and it comes with some rather interesting additions. We all knew Muse were going to be included – they were Meyer’s inspiration for the books. Personally I wouldn’t be surprised if they appear in Breaking Dawn at some point as a final hurrah! (Wedding band, anyone?) But check out the listing yourselves below.

1. Metric – “Eclipse (All Yours)”

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

3.The Bravery – “Ours”

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

5. Sia – “My Love”

6. Fanfarlo – “Atlas”

7. The Black Keys – “Chop And Change”

8. The Dead Weather – “Rolling In On A Burning Tire”

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

10. Vampire Weekend – “Jonathan Low”

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

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

13. Band Of Horses – “Life On Earth”

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

15. Howard Shore – “Jacob’s Theme”

Imdb lists the NZ release date for Eclipse the movie as July 1. So prepare yourself for the hype, again. The soundtrack is released on May 31. Personally I am looking forward to both the soundtrack and movie. I will, however be waiting a few days while the hype dies down and I don’t get crushed my tweens in a race to the box office.

Too taboo for you?


They’re not little kids anymore, it’s okay.


Yes. The band.

It makes many people cringe nowadays. But it also still manages to make some swoon (even though swoon is a recent term made popular by R-Patz.) They have a new single and eventually a new album one would assume? I take it that super band didn’t go so well then Taylor, or are you just trying to cash in on the fact people know who you are again?

Anyway. I’ve listened to and watched the video for the new single called “Thinking Bout Somethin”. And well gosh darn, if it isn’t good. Catchy even. At this point someone told me to go wash my mouth out and, admittedly, I almost did head for the soap. Because Hanson are supposed to be taboo right? They’re that ultimate guilty pleasure, but no one ever confesses to it because it is just too shameful. You will be shunned if you admit to liking them. Well, I already am a hermit in a hole of my own making, so it’s okay.

Oh, and by the way. They’ve grown up, which does wonders for how they look and sound.

Their myspace page has details, but thanks to my sister-from-another-mister she found the YouTube video, which is probably an easier watch because I had issues with the myspace player. The video is just as amazing as the song. One word came to mind: Hairspray. Not the original with Ricki Lake, but the remake with Zac Efron.
