Twilight Soundtrack Songs

The “Twilight” soundtrack songs add a dark, passion-filled intensity to the hit film that focuses on the star-crossed romance of vampire Edward Cullen and teenage human Bella Swan. The songs featured on the “Twilight” soundtrack are a mixed bag of pop, rock, classical and alternative music. Debuting at the number one position on the Billboard 200 in November of 2008, the “Twilight” soundtrack won the 2009 American Music Award for best soundtrack.

  1. “Submissive Black Hole” Performed by the English rock band Muse, this song is played when the Cullen family decide to play baseball during a thunderstorm. Stephanie Meyer is a big fan of Muse and was pleased to have them appear on the soundtrack.

  2. “Tremble for My Beloved” Only the intro of this Collective Soul song is played in the “Twilight” film. The music plays while Edward and Bella make eye contact after he prevents a van from crushing her.

  3. “Spotlight” Grammy Award nominees Mutemath performs “Spotlight,” which is featured in the scene where Edward drives Bella to school and the two are seen together as a couple for the first time by their classmates. This song also plays during the scenes in the woods where Edward tells Bella about himself, his family and their history.

  4. “Full Moon” The first song heard in the “Twilight” film is a haunting melody performed by the UK-Based electronic/pop duo Black Ghosts. “Full Moon” plays as Bella is shown traveling from her mother's home in Arizona to Forks where she will live with her father.

  5. “I Caught Myself” Paramore, an American rock band, has two songs on the “Twilight” soundtrack. “I Caught Myself” is played while Bella and her friends Angela and Jessica are shopping for prom dresses. Paramore's second song on the soundtrack, “Decode,” plays during the end credits.

  6. “Never Think” Before he was launched to international fame as vampire Edward Cullen, Robert Pattinson thought he might try his luck in the music business. The film's producer Catherine Hardwicke asked Pattinson to sing a song for the film. His contribution is featured in the scene between Edward and Bella as they eat and talk at the restaurant.

  7. “Flightless Bird, American Mouth” Suggested by Kristen Stewart, the actress who portrays Bella Swan in “Twilight,” this song is performed by American singer/songwriter Samuel Beam who performs under stage name Iron and Wine. “Flightless Bird, American Mouth” is played while Edward and Bella dance alone in the gazebo at their prom.

  8. “Bella's Lullaby” Composer Carter Burwell wrote this song that appears at various times throughout the film including when Edward carries Bella up into the pine trees and when he plays the song for her on the piano at his home.
