Twilight: The Musical

Sorry in advance for the incredibly long post. I just copied it from a Word doc and it's way longer on here.

So...here's what I've been brainstorming today. I was wracking my brain for ideas for a Twilight musical, and I think we could use existing musical numbers and just re-write the lyrics to suit the story. So - the tune would be the same, and sometimes it would be a similar theme (hence why I chose what I chose), but it'd be all about Twilight. A few of the gaps need to be filled in (like Bella/Edward falling in love could use another song, and Bella's fight with Charlie before leaving for Phoenix), and more than a few of these could be cut...or saved for New Moon: The Musical. :-)

This is total copyright infringement, but could be really funny.

Twilight the Musical:

Good Morning Baltimore (Hairspray) - Bella
Bella laments having to go to Forks High School. ("Good Morning Forks, you bore...")

They each sing about their day but haven't met yet.

Tango: Maureen (RENT) – Tyler, Mike, Eric, Edward

Sunrise, Sunset (Fiddler on the Roof) – Charlie and Billy
Charlie is wary of Edward's return, and he and Billy lament their children growing up so fast (this isn't really in the story...so maybe it'd be better saved for NM).

Happiness for Bella and Edward.

Popular (Wicked) – Alice
Alice gets Bella ready for prom.

Anyway...Let me know what you think! We can change anything. This is just a start :-) Hopefully you guys recognize these songs, or this will just seem really weird. Maybe it will anyway.

Wow Erin! This is ...incredible. I don't know all the songs, so I'll have to do a bit of research.

But, seriously, wow. You win the AWESOMEST VAMPIRE AWARD!!

I am going to make you a banner tonight.

Erin said...

Thanks, Kari! It's kind of sad how much I love musicals...but this was fun! You all are so freakin' creative, I'm just glad to bring something to the table!! :-)

Yay!!! A banner! No rush.

Jes said...

Erin! Awesome! I love musicals too... I love the list, but there has to be some phantom in there too...maybe something from Le Mis like "A little fall of Rain"- that would be a perfect song... let's has this out more at MOA!!!! I'm excited to work on the lyrics!!!!

Erin said...

Absolutely! I don't really know Les Mis, and only a few songs from Phantom, but I'm sure they'd be great! Does anyone know if the MOA rotunda has free WiFi? I could bring my laptop...

Corinne said...

Holy crow that's a long list!!!! Wow!

Erin said...

I know - I kind of went overboard! We'll have to pare it down :-) Too many good musical numbers out there! (And I realized I didn't have anything for when Edward saves Bella from Tyler's van...)
