Question of the Day (Weekend Edition)

This week we've been told that the band Paramore has signed on to pen and record two new songs for the soundtrack. The first of the two songs from Paramore is called Decode and the leader singer has this to say: "I chose the title 'Decode' because the song is about the building tension, awkwardness, anger and confusion between Bella and Edward," she said. "Bella is the only mind Edward can't read, and I feel like that's a big part of the first book and one of the obstacles for them to overcome. It's one added tension that makes the story even better."

So, my question this weekend is this:
What band/musician would you like to see/hear on the soundtrack with an original new song? Who do you think would do a really great job writing/performing a Twilight-inspired song?

PS: The film's soundtrack hits stores on November 4!

5 enjoyed the bouquet.:

I have no idea. One song thats already out that TOTALLY works is...

Lights - Drive my Soul

The persons name is Lights, don't ask me why. That song practically sums up the emotinal side of NM. I know that Twilight is coming out not NM but still...

I've been waiting to tell that to some one for so long.

Ooh, good question. I'm pretty pumped that Paramore is on the list already - I like a few of their songs. The girl's got pipes!

So...hmm. I'm a sap, so I'd always like to hear some Dashboard on there. And I really love Boys Like Girls, so maybe them. Most of the rest of the stuff I can think of probably wouldn't jive with the Twilight vibe (rap artists, powerhouse R&B singers, etc...). I also listen to a lot of Guster, O.A.R. and Matt Nathanson, so any of those would be great as well (but again, probably not the Twilight vibe).

I've never listened to Paramore before. But I definitely would love to hear Ben Folds, Jump Little Children, or Ryan Adams, I think they would fit well. I love the Avett Brothers, but they probably wouldn't fit...but who knows, they are pretty much amazing and could pull it off.

maggie - I love the band Paramore. They're latest hit was 'That's What You Get' and the main line in the chorus is 'That's what you get when you let your heart win.' I only know that because I'm listening to it on my I-pod.


P.S. - if you listen to Drive my Soul by Lights you will see what I was talking about before.

P.P.S. - I think I might be in a different time zone than you cause my last post says it was at 9:39,
but I didn't get out of bed until 10:30...

Z~Z, I heard one of their songs on the radio!! Apparently I had no idea that was Paramore haha. They are pretty good, not usually my style of music, but not too bad! And if they are going to write a song for Twilight, how can I not like them?
