Pick The Song for Twilight

June 28th, 2008 at 12:05 am by Kaleb Nation

I have been planning this for a while now, and as I near the last two weeks of reading Twilight, the time has come to open the polls!

Everyone knows the importance of the final song in a film, the one that plays during the credits. The purpose of this is to bring the film to a closing with a song that seems to represent the movie you just watched. As songs have been such an important part of each chapter post, I have decided to take a vote for what the final song for Twilight should be, in the opinion of all the Twilighters around the world!

The goal is to find a song that seems to represent Twilight (the first book) as a whole to you. You can nominate up to 3 songs, but you must submit them separately.

There will be two rounds. One, will be suggesting songs. The second will be voting on the top-ten of those suggested. I will post the song for Twilight when I write on the epilogue, with my final thoughts on the book.

Also, as I am one who abhors polls with no prize, I am offering a free BITE ME HAT and MITCH HANSEN BAND CD to a randomly chosen person from those who enter– all straight from TwilightTeez.com!

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!! the song i choose is my all time favorite!!!!! and my brothers!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Natasha

    I submitted my song, but I don’t know if it’ll be picked.
    Best of luck for those that entered, I hope to see some good songs. :)

  3. Audree

    What a fun, great idea!

  4. Claire

    Great idea!
    I can think of a couple of songs that epitomize Twilight, I’ll go check out my playlist right now!

  5. Michelle

    That was cool.

  6. I Punched A Werewolf in the Face

    I am pretty sure NONE of my choices will be in the top 10, but they’re really lovely! I hope you get a chance to hear them some time Kaleb.

  7. Megan

    Yes I am awake at times of the night where NORMAL people sleep, but i needed to comment… i love this! =3 My song may be old and sortta sappy but i think the lyrics say it all ^^

  8. Piper

    Hmmm… I hope that my song is one of the top ten ^_^

  9. Anonymous

    So this is round one. When is round two? I’m too impatient to wait until it actually arrives to figure it out.

  10. Jessie

    This is fun!
    I submitted a really obvious one, but I don’t think it’ll get picked.
    Good Luck to everyone! :)

  11. melissahope


  12. melissahope


    haha. me too. i didn’t go to sleep last night. it’s like 7:00 in the morning.

  13. Megan

    I’m the 13th commenter. Possibly a bad sign.
    On top of that, I’m the 13th commenter and I’m the second one with my name.
    I want to hear everybody’s picks very badly. I didn’t vote.
    I am physically incapable of picking a song to represent a book. I pick songs to represent characters.

  14. twilight22lover

    i hope i win! i know a lot of people think the song i chose is a good twilight one, so maybe i will win!

  15. Rachel

    Thanks Kaleb, this looks like fun!
    Anything Muse would be perfect, but I also really like the song Kepping Me Alive, by the Afters…check it out!

  16. Annie

    I can’t wait to see what ones make it to the top ten! i really hope mine does, because it exactly tells you what edward is kinda feeling….. but it could also sorta work for new moon too……

  17. Gill Pont

    Kaleb, is there a limit as to how many times you may suggest a song? (I have a few that all fit Twilight.)

  18. Carla

    The song I picked seems like it was written for Twilight. I don’t think it will make the Top 10, though. It’s not that known.

    GREAT idea, Kaleb! 😀

  19. Carla

    I just submitted another one. I think I’m going for the 3rd and last one. 😀

  20. Anza

    My song always reminds me of Bella/Edward’s relationship. If you listen to the words (esp. the chorus), you’ll totally agree. :)

  21. Jen

    I’ve always thought of Sound of Pulling Heaven Down by Blue October to be perfect for the credit song. I listen to it whenever I’m reading the end of Twilight

  22. Ashley

    Oops, i didn’t see the part where you can only do 3. I did five……

  23. KatRin

    fun idea! I just spent like 30 minutes going through all my songs and looking up lyrics, then another 10 narrowing it down to three songs… definitely harder than I thought it was going to be! 😛

  24. fernanda

    i’ll have to do some serious research!! although i already suggested a song for the epilogue. does that count??

  25. Tina

    I hope my song gets picked 😀

  26. Dianne

    I’m hoping my songs went through! I hope mine gets picked, too! :)

  27. CullenCrazy

    I just submitted one, I hope it gets picked!! Can’t wait to see the top 10.

  28. Morgan A.

    I just submitted one! I think it’s perfect for the whole book and i checked and it’s on Stephenie’s playlist too! I hope it gets picked!!

  29. liz

    I think songs that aren’t in stephenie’s playlist should make the final cut, I mean, come on! She already made the playlist so the obviously already represent the book, so why not go with something different.

  30. Mara-Kate

    Love this idea!! So much fun, off to listen to my Twilight Playlist to find the best one ! :)

  31. Melinda

    Oh. This is a FANTASTIC idea.
    I love it.
    But I have too many songs to choose from. This is going to be tough. I’m gonna have to think about this long and hard.
    Nice Kaleb!

  32. Katie Beth

    Oh yay. 😀 I’ve been wanting to suggest one of those songs to someone (anyone!) for FOREVER. Let the voice be heard, whether it’s ignored or not, right?

  33. Twilight Theme Song « Spidurmunkey

    […] Enter Here: http://www.twilightguy.com/2008/06/28/pick-the-song-for-twilight/ […]

  34. Deja

    Wooo! Great Idea Kaleb… I hope my song gets picked it’s always reminded me of Twilight.. he he it took me forever to pick a song because I was searching through my i-pod and every single song reminds me in some way of Twilight :) okay enough rambling great Idea once again :)

  35. MoonStar

    I love the tune I picked!!
    The words just seem to fit Twilight =]

    Kaleb, I love your posts, they’re really funny yet insightful. Reading them makes me feel like I’m reading Twilight for the first time again – keep it up!!


  36. Christar

    I submitted my songs, and I hope they’re on the top ten! They’re all amazing and I listen to them incessantly because of how eerily they fit Twilight.

  37. Clair

    submitted mine…but im so sure they wont make the top 10!
    if anyones interested, they are:
    everything by michael buble
    even angels fall by jessica riddle
    everytime we touch by cascada

  38. Libby

    I submitted a song–it’s perfect for Twilight, from both Edward AND Bella’s perspective (though probably mainly Edward’s). But I guess we’ll have to see what the top 10 are… I wonder what everyone else picked?

  39. Jumana

    The song i picked matches the book perfectly its called Here in your arms by hello goodbye

  40. Katie

    I picked the song Calling All Cars by Senses Fail. I fell it fits it perfectly!

  41. Heather Cullen

    Lion – Rebecca St James
    Perfect song anybody would agree once they listen to it!

  42. Stacey

    This is for Keeps – the spill canvas!! that songs is flippin made for twilight. listen to the words, (totally edward and bella)

  43. Kara

    Won’t let me submit.
    But I think “Eat You Alive” by Limp Bizkit would be really good =)

  44. twilightdew

    It was hard coming with just three!

    I think that “Here With Me” by Dido should make the top 10. Not only is it in Stephenie’s playlist but I think that it would really work well as a closing song. I also submitted:

    Maybe An Angel – Heather Nova
    Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=At488lpq2DA
    Lyrics: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/h/heather+nova/maybe+an+angel_20064857.html

    The Way It Is – Nicole Atkins
    Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4pxn-xULNs
    Lyrics: http://www.lyricsmania.com/lyrics/nicole_atkins_lyrics_10893/neptune_city_lyrics_73127/the_way_it_is_lyrics_719582.html

  45. Keatyn

    I submitted
    Say Hi to Your Mom – Blah Blah Blah.

    The eniter album Impeccable Blahs is about Vampires.

  46. Tanit

    Who Wants to Live Forever – Queen

    (it’s beautiful and perfect for them)

  47. Ligia

    Did it submit?
    Hands Down – Dashboard Confessional

  48. Marianne

    I like maps by the yeah yeah yeahs

  49. jaqueline

    I love the Twilight’s playlist but i love much more my playlist of Twilight…
    There´s so many songs for Bella and Edward’s love that i can’t believe that this kind of love is right there in so many songs… so i put two songs for u.. i think that Shooting star by Air traffic, Time is running out by Muse and Kelsey by metro station are awsome!!

  50. catherine

    beautiful love by THE AFTERS
    PERFECT for the epilogue


  51. Debbie

    i thought You’re not alone by sasoin would work because it’s tense in the beginning but it gets calmer and talks about how you’re never alone, just like Bella and Edward even if they were to be seperated by thousands of miles… or that’s just me…

  52. Krystina

    Deeper by Hanson


  53. Alexandra

    Ummm…it is really a hard one…There are so many songs that are out there and describe their relationship, however on the otherhand, it is so hard to get everything about their lives together. Some of the top songs I know are All Around Me by Flyleaf.

  54. Alexandra

    Ok, my other song is Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls. I think that this song is a mixture of Edward and Bella’s POV…I think that everything but the chorus is Bella, but the chorus is Edward…plus I just really like this song, but I do think that it relates to Twilight alot…

  55. Lissete [Frerard Addict]

    I submitted one, but I’m afraid it’s already been submitted by someone else because it’s so popular and obvious. =O

  56. Nikita

    I really hope that mine makes it =) Beautiful Love by The Afters reminds me of how Bella and Edward look at each other throughout the book. AWESOME song =)

  57. Mel

    Here’s one of the 2 songs I submitted

    This Is for Keeps – The Spill Canvas


    The other is Good Looks, Bad Intentions by The Sunstreak, but I couldnt find a good one

  58. Anna

    :O I submitted This Is For Keeps too!
    I have a feeling a lot of people are going to submit that haha

  59. twilightdew

    Have any of you guys heard of the artist Kerli? I just found her music just now and I think she is fantastic. You can hear it on her myspace at http://www.myspace.com/kerlimusic

    I think that her song “Walking On Air” would be perfect for Twilight.

    If you’re interested, the lyrics are at http://www.seekalyric.com/song/Kerli/Walking_On_Air

  60. Minh Thu

    I don’t thing mine will make the top 10.

    I submitted three.

    Alicia Keys – Never Felt This Way
    Anastacia feat. Eros Ramazzoti – I belong To You
    The Mitch Hansen Band – Flower In The Shade


  61. Mel

    Haha yeah I just noticed that a couple of people submitted that song. lol.

  62. Smay

    There are so many songs you could say are perfect, it’s so hard to decide. Luckily, just incase a moment like this came along, I have a Twilight songs list on iTunes haha!

  63. Annette

    I picked Lion by Rebecca St. James.

    It sounds like it was made for Twilight. Here’s a Twilight video to it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hky4ZnuAwRY

  64. Brittany

    The second song I picked is more so from Edward’s point of view, so I suppose it’s more for Midnight Sun. But the first song I picked is definitely from Bella’s point of view. :-) One of my favorite artists.

  65. Lisa

    I just had to pick All Around Me by Flyleaf. The song just emulates the tension that is felt throughout the book.

  66. Violet

    heh. i guess im not the only one whos made a twilight playlist…(:

    unknown soldier — breaking benjamin
    ginasfs — fall out boy
    when the day met the night — panic at the disco.


    and no offense to any jonas brothers fans, but if one of their songs win, im going to shoot something.

  67. Amy

    i love that song, and anything Muse and I like the song Lion too

  68. Kelliann

    Don’t kill me but I picked “As I Am” by Miley Cyrus.

    SIMPLY because it reminded me of how sometimes Bella isn’t in the best of moods or even presentible but Edward takes her all in anyway. He loves her as she is! Get it?

  69. Ashley

    I picked:
    1. Cascada – Everytime we touch
    2. The Used – All That I’ve Got
    3. Goo Goo Dolls – Before It’s Too Late


  70. Abbie

    What an awsome idea!!I submitted 2 songs that I thought she be it. Don’t know if they will be picked but I thought I’d suggest them anyway.

  71. Desiree

    I have never heard a more suitable song than “I’m Still Here” by John Rzeznik. EVERY single time I listen to this song I immediately think of Twilight. (Edward more specifically =P)

  72. Lauren

    There are WAY to many songs
    i could pick out for Twilight.
    so… :] i’m not going to get started typing in those songs,
    because i won’t be able to stop.

    check out my youtube page if you would like. thanks. :]

    and i will be emtemely angry if
    a jonas brothers song or miley cyrus song gets picked. :]

  73. Mel

    Huh I love Fall Out Boy, but I never pictured GINASFS related to Twilight or Panic either. Huh oh well

  74. Heather cullen

    cum on Myley cyrus? what kind of load of crap is that and jonas brothers great way to ruin what could be a great song and represent the book with artist as bad as them *throws up* Now listen to these: Lion- rebecca st james or aqualung- strange and beautiful

  75. Hannah

    Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers SHOULD NOT BE PICKED FOR ANYTHING! EVER!

    I picked Wonderwall by Oasis. :]

  76. Hannah

    Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis would be perfect, too.
    Whoa. Unbelievably.

  77. Hannah

    I’M BACK!
    Stop This Song and My Heart by Paramore are also PERFECT!
    It’s so hard.
    I CAN BE YOUR SUPERMAN! Eminem! LMAO. Jaykay.

  78. Hannah

    Kiss Me by New Found Glory
    “Kiss me beneath the milky Twilight”

  79. Hannah

    Wow. I’m so bored. :DD
    I keep thinking of things.

  80. Hannah

    Scratch that.
    The New Found Glory version kind of sucks.
    Sixpence None The Richer version of Kiss Me = so Twilight.

  81. Jessica

    Kaleb this isthe best idea ever!
    I hope at least one of my songs gets picked!!

    my 3:
    Collide – Howie Day
    Clair de Lune – Debussy
    Sleeping Sickness – City and Colour

    GAH! everyone has such good ideas though:P

  82. Erin

    I’ve only submitted one song because it is pretty much the sweetest love song I’ve ever heard in my life. Seriously. It will definitely be the song I dance to a my wedding one day :)

    Ben Folds – The Luckiest

  83. Kari

    Soooo didn’t anyone think of Hysteria by Muse??? I mean, I thinks its awesome. Anything by Muse would fit, to me. I LOOOOVE Iris by Goo Goo Dolls. One of my top fave. songs of ALL TIME! Oh and CITY AND COLOUR ROCK! THANK YOU FOR BEING AWESOME AND KNOWING THME!!! I love sleeping sickness!!! Great Idea Kaleb! I hope some awesome ones make it.(Hopegull they’re one of mine.) :)

  84. KatRin

    oo all those songs are good! i picked seventeen forever by metro station, the best thing by relient k and best mistake by jamisonparker :]] i dont think any of them will make it to top ten but theyre what i think of when i read twilight!

    ohh and whats with all the jonas brothers hate, yo? im not a huge fan or anything (i own 2 of their songs) but i think its fun/nice to rock out to pure bubblegum pop once and while 😀

  85. Faith

    Wow, what a vamptastic idea! I chose a couple of songs, but I doubt they would make the top ten. Well, a girl can dream…
    Good luck to the winners, ’cause I really want to know what the top song is!

  86. Mel D.

    So I entered my three, and I think they’re pretty sweet (not that I’m biased or anything).

    Good luck picking!

  87. Mel D.

    Oh, by the way, I picked:

    Nothing Like You and I by The Perishers
    This is For Keeps by The Spill Canvas
    Gotta Have You by The Weepies


  88. Monica

    1. “Lovers in a Dangerous Time” by Barenaked Ladies
    2. “Kiss Me” by Sixpence None the Richer
    3. “Accidentally In Love” by Counting Crows (?)

  89. Christar

    Since everyone else is saying which ones they picked, I gotta repost and say the three I picked.

    1. This Is For Keeps ~ Spill Canvas (BEST SONG FOR TWILIGHT!!!!!)

    2. All Around Me ~ Flyleaf

    3. I’m Lost Without You ~ Blink 182

    I personally think “This Is For Keeps”, is the best choice. With “All Around Me” as a close second.

  90. rachel

    This could be a lot of fun. Music is so incorporated in all of her books. It’s only logical to have a contest of the number one song!!!

    guys check out this song by death cab for cutie “I’ll follow you into the dark”:


  91. Miara

    My three were:
    Prelude by Globus
    Time Is Running Out by Muse
    Into The Night by Nickelback

  92. Lia

    Dude those are cool songs, but I chose:
    Loves Me Not by t.A.T.u
    All About Us by t.A.T.u
    Whispers In The Dark by Skillet

  93. Jessie

    Hey guys, I just found the (in my opinion) perfect song for New Moon:
    Evanescene – My immortal

  94. Desiree


    please listen to “Undone”
    it’s a good song for Twilight
    but the song is in Edward’s

  95. Stacey

    okay, i second the “i will follow you into the dark.” but i want to put a link to “This is for Keeps” – by the spill canvas, it is flippin amazing!


  96. Katie

    Will the top ten picks be the ones most submitted or will they be selected by you personally? (I would rather it be the second, if you ask me, but no one did) 😛

  97. ally_kl

    I’ve never been one for self-promotion but when I read the end of Twilight, this song that I wrote back in 2006 was playing in my head the whole time. It’s on my purevolume:


  98. Lynn

    Wow!!!! I bet I could find TONS of songs that go with Twilight!!But why only 3?? Well I guess that means I’m gonna spending a LONG time finding 3 that I think fit the best. Well wish me luck cause I’m gonna spending hours looking for the PERFECT songs!! Which I will do later today ’cause if I don’t got to bed soon then I’ll end up staying up all night and parents wouldn’t like it if I did THAT again (the first time was also twilight related). Go Twilight!! :) So goodnight (or morning) I’ll pick my songs later!!!:)

  99. angelique

    It will be nice if we could see the whole list of the submissions, not only the top ten ^^
    But anyway, I’m impatient to see chich songs will be picked =)

  100. angelique

    By the way, I submitted Bitter Sweet Symphony by the Verve, it’s not really Twilight but I think it fits for a end (plus the sentence always is “I can’t change” lol differents meanings )

  101. Lisa Cullen

    I love The spill Canvas (Lullaby) He is so sweet and caring in this song it is exactly how Edward is, telling Bella he is here to protect her and she is safe he will kiss her then sing her to sleep Wow I think it is so perfect plus The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus (Your Guardian Angel) sings about how he will never let her fall and he will stand up for her forever how he will be there for her through it all no matter what!
    and finally Blink 182 (I’m Lost Without you) a song about how now they have found each other the worst fear is being apart. Yes all really good for Twilight!!

  102. Georgia

    Oh man you guys seriously miss out – assuming most of you live in the US or Europe.
    Kate Miller-Heidke’s Space They Cannot Touch hands down! Sums up no only the books but Edward and Bella’s relationship nicely.
    (Both her and I are Australian. :P)

  103. Josie L.


    It’s not rock but I think it could be a good song…So here’s my song pick!

  104. Tanit

    Sorry!! I picked more than 3!! I’m sorry I didn’t get to read that… I submitted more than three…. know I feel like I jerk, well, my most important three are:

    Vampire Heart – HIM
    Who Wants To Live Forever – Queen
    Forever Young – Alphaville

  105. Kaleb Nation

    @angelique (#99): There were over 3,000 songs submitted in the first 24 hours. I don’t think that will all fit on a page, much less the list there will be by the end of the week 😀

    In fact, the reason the site was down earlier was because I’m only supposed to get a maximum of 150 emails an hour, and had exceeded it. Yikes! That was upped to 250 so there shouldn’t be any more problems.

    Great picks so far everyone! Thanks and if you haven’t already, keep submitting them!


  106. c

    darkest love–jump little children (i love the live version the best)
    read lyrics here:

  107. Soaking.In.the.Midnight.Sun

    HOHO, fall for you by secondhand serenade!! its totally edwards view actually, but its really 100% edward’s view! and say it again by marie digby is 100% bella’s view, haha, which one to choose arh? (:

  108. Ariana

    Alrightt i just submitted The Spill Canvas song which i really hope gets picked! Every time i hear it it’s like hearing Edward’s thoughts, it’s perfect :) ahhh i cant wait to see which one wins!

  109. Elaine

    I voted for Bliss by Muse.

    There are so many to choose from…argh! Confused!

  110. Cheyenne

    I picked:

    Cascada-Eveytime We Touch
    DHT-Listen To Your Heart (slow)
    DJ Sammy-We’re in Heaven (slow)

    I can’t wait to see what songs win!!

  111. Camy

    Okay, I know it’s not really a song, but it’s just the first I can think of when Twilight is mentioned, since it’s used a place in the book. Sorry… -.-

  112. Julia

    i think everyone will agree with me when i say that there are way too many perfect songs for Twilight to just pick one. anyway, i just randomly submitted:
    1. This Providence “My Beautiful Rescue”
    2. Dashboard Confessional “Screaming Infidelities”
    3. Switchfoot “Learning to Breathe”

    everyone interprets this book differently, and each person takes something different away as an individual. these were just some random songs i thought of. also good is Red Jumpsuit Apparatus “Your Guardian Angel”…

    PS. Twilight Fans are the best people in the world!!! :)

  113. Grace

    omg i swear if anyone actually looks at the song and the lyrics it fits this book perfectly word for word!!

    its Gavin Degraw with In Love With A Girl

    i swear it perfect

  114. Ana

    I’ve chosen 3 songs:

    -Stolen by Dashboard Confessional

    -Invincible by Muse

    -Love will come trought by Travis

  115. Shelby

    Monster lyrics

    His little whispers.
    Love Me. Love Me.
    That’s all I ask for.
    Love Me. Love Me.
    He battered his tiny fists to feel something.
    Wondered what it’s like to touch and feel something.
    How should I feel?
    Creatures lie here.
    Looking through the window…
    That night he caged her.
    Bruised and broke her.
    He struggled closer.
    Then he stole her.
    Violet wrists and then her ankles.
    Silent Pain.
    Then he slowly saw their nightmares were his dreams.
    How should I feel?
    Creatures lie here.
    Looking through the windows.
    I will.
    Hear their voices.
    I’m a glass child.
    I am Hannah’s regrets.
    How should I feel?
    Turn the sheets down.
    Murder ears with pillow lace.
    There’s bath tubs.
    Full of glow flies.
    Bathe in kerosene.
    Their words tattoed in his veins.

    then there is this one:
    Blackout by muse

    don’t kid yourself
    and don’t fool yourself
    this love’s too good to last
    and i’m too old to dream

    don’t grow up too fast
    and don’t embrace the past
    this life’s too good to last
    and i’m too young to care

    don’t kid yourself
    and don’t fool yourself
    this life could be the last
    and we’re too young to see

    or this one, which i have a feeling will be popular:

    Animal I Have Become lyrics

    I can’t escape this hell
    So many times i’ve tried
    But i’m still caged inside
    Somebody get me through this nightmare
    I can’t control myself

    So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
    No one will ever change this animal I have become
    Help me believe it’s not the real me
    Somebody help me tame this animal
    (This animal, this animal)

    I can’t escape myself
    (I can’t escape myself)
    So many times i’ve lied
    (So many times i’ve lied)
    But there’s still rage inside
    Somebody get me through this nightmare
    I can’t control myself

    So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
    No one will ever change this animal I have become
    Help me believe it’s not the real me
    Somebody help me tame this animal I have become
    Help me believe it’s not the real me
    Somebody help me tame this animal

    Somebody help me through this nightmare
    I can’t control myself
    Somebody wake me from this nightmare
    I can’t escape this hell

    (This animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal)

    So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
    No one will ever change this animal I have become
    Help me believe it’s not the real me
    Somebody help me tame this animal I have become
    Help me believe it’s not the real me
    Somebody help me tame this animal
    (This animal I have become)

    i hope they will be picked!

  116. Choua

    I submitted mines..I hope mines make it up to the top ten..

    Song: Angels
    By: Within Temptation

  117. Melinda

    Well I already know one song that will be in the top ten…
    This Is For Keeps-Spill Canvas
    It is DEFINATELY a perfect choice. But I have no idea about the other nine. This will be very exciting.
    Great idea Kaleb!
    It doesn’t suprise me that you reached the maximum emails in an hour!!
    Keep up the amazing work!

  118. christina

    this is such a vamptastic idea!!!
    i made twilight, new moon, and eclipse playlists on my ipdo (the songs r the 1s from stephenie meyer’s website) but the 1s i submitted r just songs i love tht arent from the website but i still think they r good twilight songs and i relly hope they make the top ten!!! oh and good luck to all!!! :)

  119. Becky

    :) cool idea, but have fun sorting through all the entries, lol

    my favorite is This is for Keeps by The Spill Canvas- the lyrics are so perfect
    hopefully it gets top 10 at least

  120. Kaitlin

    i submitted I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith…it always reminds me of how Edward may feel when he’s w/ Bella.

  121. Monica

    My three?
    Collide-Howie Day
    Crazy For This Girl-Evan and Jaron

    I hope they get picked!

  122. Ana

    I just started reading Twilight, too… I finished it in 2 days =)
    My pick is Thunder – Boys Like Girls because the lyrics are so good(this is just a small part):

    Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
    Do you know you’re unlike any other?
    You’ll always be my thunder, and I said
    Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors
    I don’t wanna ever love another
    You’ll always be my thunder
    So bring on the rain

    Yeah I’m walking on a tightrope
    I’m wrapped up in vines
    I think we’ll make it out
    But you just gotta give me time
    Strike me down with lightning
    Let me feel you in my veins
    I wanna let you know how much I feel your pain

  123. Kelsey

    I actually put “Beautiful Mess” by Jason Mraz as my first choice.

    You’ve got the best of both worlds
    You’re the kind of girl who can take down a man then lift him back up again
    You are strong but you’re needy, humble but you’re greedy
    And based on your body language and shoddy cursive I’ve been reading…


  124. Libby

    Well since w’re now all sharing what we chose, mine was:

    “Crashed” by Daughtry.

    Listen to it. It fits SOOO well!

  125. Ashley Evelyn

    I had a bunch of songs that I are very Twilight-ish. But, I guess I based my picks on the lyrics and the music. Twilight seems like a very ROCK book. hehe.

    My picks:
    1. “Battle of One” by 30 Seconds to Mars
    2. “Rangers” by A Fine Frenzy (not a Rock song, but eh)
    3. “Drive There Now” by The Almost

  126. Ashley Evelyn

    Oops! I had a bunch of songs that I THINK are very Twilight-ish. LOL

  127. Libby

    “Crashed” by Daughtry:

    I was moving at the speed of sound.
    Head spinning, couldn’t find my way around, and
    I didn’t know that I was going down.
    Yeah, Yeah…

    Where I’ve been well it’s all a blur.
    What I was looking for, I’m not sure.
    Too late and didn’t see it coming.
    Yeah, Yeah…

    Then I crashed into you,
    And I went up in flames.
    Could’ve been the death of me,
    But then you breathed your breath in me.
    And I crashed into you,
    Like a runaway train.
    You will consume me,
    But I can’t walk away.

    Somehow, I couldn’t stop myself.
    I just wanted to know how it felt.
    Too strong, I couldn’t hold on.
    Yeah, Yeah…

    Now I’m just trying to make some sense
    Out of how and why this happened.
    Where we’re heading, there’s just no knowing
    Yeah, Yeah…


    From your face, your eyes
    Are burning to me.
    You saved me, you gave me
    Just what I need.
    Oh, just what I need.


    And then I crashed into you,
    And then I crashed into you,
    And then I crashed into you,
    And then I crashed into you,
    And I crashed into you,
    Like a runaway train.
    You will consume me,
    But I can’t walk away.

  128. fernanda

    my picks are waaay awesome

    starting with taking back sunday’s make damn sure cause it’s just perfect for it!! u know it xD

    then Angels and Airwaves’ Breathe cause it’s a perfect love song and and it fits perrrrfectly!! please try to check out those lyrics!

  129. jessica

    Has anyone suggested anything from the Mitch Hanson Band yet?!
    Seeing as those songs are actually BASED on Twilight. it only seems reasonable to suggest some:P

  130. kerry

    haha i’m sure about a gajillion people already picked it, but “time is running out” by muse is just perfect.
    like…”the scientist” by coldplay and “lullabye” by billy joel.

  131. Stephanie

    Hayley Westenra – Dark Waltz

  132. AriLovesEdward!

    haha I know the songs I picked aren’t going to be the most popular, on account I know some pretty random music that people don’t list to, but Oh well.

  133. Renee

    i hope mine get picked!

    they are:

    Collide – Howie Day
    Seventeen Forever – Metro Station
    Fall for You – Secondhand Serenade

  134. Jess

    How about Fear by Sarah McLachlan.

    Youtube it. It fits perfectly! Seriously!

  135. Meryl

    I chose to enter:

    1) Hero/Heroine by Boys Like Girls
    2) This is for Keeps by The Spill Canvas
    3)Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis

    Peronally I think the song ‘This is for Keeps’ by The Spill Canvas is the best representation of Twilight. It sounds like it was written for the book. It’s scary how good that song is, and I hope it will be a popular choice.

  136. Taylor

    Whoa, I submitted All Downhill From Here by Amy Kuney. It’s a fairly recent song, but it just sort of ends Twilight but gives you the gist of the sequels; hence the title: “All Downhill From Here.” It’s an amazing song, and I hope it makes it!

  137. Rayver

    I beg to differ; i’d be totally pleased if Jonas Brothers got picked

    idk about their new songs

    but Please Be Mine by Nicholas Jonas is amazing! now shove that down your narrow-minded asses (which in your case are equivalent to brains)

    listen to it! it’s the shit! :]]

  138. Diana

    OMG!! the song i picked is my all time favorite!! and my best friends too!!!

    i entered:

    Lion – Rebecca St James

  139. Brooke

    I thought the song “This is For Keeps” by The Spill Canvas covered it pretty well. A few things strayed from the type of vampire Stephenie describes, but the desire for blood, eternity, and love is all there. Great Song. Hope it wins.

  140. anthony

    I chose Meg and Dia’s ‘Monster’
    When I heard that song i was like…this was made for twilight. The lyics go perfectly with for the entire series.

  141. Reading Twilight: Chapter 21 (Phone Call) | Twilight Guy - with Kaleb Nation

    […] Don’t forget to keep suggesting songs if you haven’t already! The nominations end this weekend and voting begins the same day! Just […]

  142. Patricia

    Woot! I am confident that my song will do well 😀 I submitted “Human” by Jon McLaughlin.

  143. Claire

    I think mine represents New Moon more so than Twilight…

  144. Alexa

    I have T H E perfect song for New Moon. I think you guys would agree at least a little bit.

    Far Away – Nickelback

    I love that song and I think it totally makes sence for New Moon. I wish he was on that book already. (:

  145. Alexa

    I changed my mind. That song is perfect for the whole series. (:

  146. Anna

    I think Lullaby by The Spill Canvas fits very well.

  147. Kirsty

    I submitted Lion by Rebecca St. James

  148. Cassie

    The song I picked is No Fear by The Rasmus. It pertains to Bella if she were to pick the vampire way =)

    Lyrics: http://artists.letssingit.com/rasmus-lyrics-no-fear-zvmg11b

    Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuC6a15QPSI

  149. Cheyenne

    Hero/Heroine and Seventeen Forever are great songs for Twilight too!!

  150. Brittany y

    Wow This is a brilliant idea! i already did my 3 and just like everbody else i totally think these 3 songs work…only 1 has been mentioned before so i hope you pick mine!
    thanks for the gud posts

  151. Jacob Black

    OOohh, some great songs here.

    We can’t decide on the top song to suggest. Lots to choose from!

    We have a Twilighters Anonymous compilations here:

    Ill repost once we decide!

  152. JanetH

    I’m a bit confused. The winning song will the one that has the most “votes” or submissions? Aren’t you choosing based on your own opinion Kaleb? I submitted a song I found on YouTube and the first time I heard it I immediately thought of the Edward/Bella love story. Should I post the youtube link here?
    (hope that was ok. don’t want to break any rules.)
    (well, I DO want to break rules, but I don’t wish to upset you, Kaleb, with rulebreaking at this time.)

  153. Catherine

    Here’s one of the songs I submitted. I think it could be the way Edward thinks of himself sometimes:

    Debating on which way to run to
    Haunted by voices
    Craving someone to run to

    I haven’t lost myself in a long time
    I never tried to care when I wanted to
    I just wanna be part of something
    I just wanna be real like you

    Sometimes I feel like a monster
    And times I feel like a saint
    I’m on my knees
    You’re my favorite disease

    Silent warnings
    Tell me that I’ve let things come undone
    Show me
    Teach me the way to heaven
    ‘Cause no other way can

    I haven’t lost myself in a long time
    I never tried to care when I wanted to
    I just wanted to be part of something
    I just wanted to be real like you

    Sometimes I feel like a monster
    And times I feel like a saint
    I’m on my knees
    You’re my favorite disease

    Closer to you
    I need to be closer now
    Closure yet
    Closer to you
    Every step I take

    Sometimes I feel like a monster
    And times I feel like a saint
    I’m on my knees
    You’re my favorite disease
    And I love to way you kill me
    Love the way you heal me

    Sometimes I feel like a monster
    And times I feel like a saint
    I’m on my knees
    You’re my favorite disease
    And I love to way you kill me
    Love the way you heal me
    I love the way you kill me
    I love the way you heal me
    I love the way you kill me
    I love the way you heal me
    I love the way you kill me
    I love the way you heal me
    I love the way you kill me
    I love the way you heal me

  154. Catherine

    Oh, yeah- it’s “Favorite Disease” by Thousand Foot Krutch. 😛

  155. Macy

    I picked:

    Morningside-Sara Bareilles :) the first line is PERFECT! love the music!!!

    Time Is Running Out-Muse…yeah yeah yeah…I know everyone picked that song…couldn’t resist :)

    Twilight-Vanessa Carlton…lyrics and mood are perfect!!!

  156. Summer

    OME… i think that this is a great idea Kaleb. the songs the are picked are really great and i think they should be picked because they really explain twilight…

    Thunder- Boys Like Girls
    Shadow of the Day- Linkin Park
    The Diary of Jane (acoustic)- Breaking Benjamin


  157. leslie

    There is NO better choice.

    “Eternity will never be enough for me…eternally we’ll live our infallible love…”

  158. Michelle

    so are u going to do this when u read new moon bc i have songs in my head already for that one hahaha

  159. Ana F

    People if you haven’t heard it yet pliz do!
    the song i chose is “Your Call” by Secondhand Serenade!!!
    it’s so perfect!



  160. gientsy

    hahahaha i like the song i submitted actually i love it!!!!!!
    and i have a perfect sog fornew moon i think by the same singer

  161. Bee

    I have over 2,000 songs to look through and I am excited! There are so many possibilities.

  162. Rachel

    Your Guardian Angel-Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

    Too Far Gone- All American Rejects

    Rainy Monday- Shiny Toy Guns

    Different parts of the songs reminded me of dufferent characters and certain parts of the book.

  163. Michelle S

    I chose
    1. all around me – flyleaf
    2.hero/heroine – boys like girls
    3. lion – rebecca st. james

    all these songs have lyrics that match twilight perfectly although hero/heroine is more for midnight sun

  164. Emily

    Okay, so I skimmed through really quickly, but WHY IS NO ONE MENTIONING RELIENT K????
    Missy Higgins I can understand (On A Clear Night, just the whole CD is amazing – BUY IT PEOPLE) ’cause she’s Australian, but come on! The Best Thing, I Need You, and Must Have Done Something Right by Relient k… Though I picked another instead of the last one – Breathe by Angels & Airwaves… though I haven’t seen anyone pick A & A either… jeez, I’m alone here!

  165. Carrie




    plus its an awsomeeeeeee

  166. Mary

    I have a bunch of awesome New Moon songs, but oh well. Good luck, guys.

  167. Mary

    Wow, guys, I know this has nothing to do with Twilight (sort of), but don’t you think Viva la Vida by Coldplay is a perfect song for The Host?

  168. Rita

    Não sei que música escolher!!
    Este livro é tão… PERFEITO!!
    Não há uma música que o defina !

    Mas vou tentar encontrar uma.


  169. Rita

    Almost forgot.
    I wrote the comment in portuguese, my mistake.

    I was saying that this book is so PERFECT!!
    I don’t know if I can choose one song that defines it.
    I’m searching for some songs and I won’t give up!

    XOXO, Rita Junot (PORTUGAL)


  170. Rita Junot

    Well, imagine that there is not one song that truly makes justice to the book (by the lyrics) we could choose instrumental songs 😀


  171. JanetH

    Opening stanza for When You Say You Love Me, by Josh Groban.
    Like the sound of silence calling,
    I hear your voice and suddenly
    I’m falling, lost in a dream.
    Like the echoes of our souls are meeting,
    You say those words and my heart stops beating.
    I wonder what it means.
    What could it be that comes over me?
    At times I can’t move.
    At times I can hardly breathe.
    I feel that this song best represents the first book Twilight because the book is really about the love story between Edward and Bella.

  172. allaboutthemusic

    You kids are cute picking the Jonas Brother’s and Miley Cyrus but let’s be serious… This book is obsession, lust, mystery and mayhem and the music needs to be deep, dark and far away from the top 20. I mean “Bleeding Love”?? There is no chance in forks that a pop song will be picked. If it’s not a Muse or Linkin Park song then it may certainly be something that Hasn’t hit the mainstream (If Alex lives up to her name!) and if it HAS to be maintream, Flyleaf gets my vote.

  173. elizabethh

    I picked these 3:

    Iris-goo goo dolls

    Twilight- vanessa carlton
    http://youtube.com/watch?v=Gbhb5MS7RZM (yeaa i know lots of people picked it..but its an awesome song!!)


    monsters-matchbox romance

    i don’t know i just think it fits how edward feels… or actually like how they are vampires.. here is a part of the song:

    Oh, what’s come between you and me?
    Look right through me
    I’ll let it go
    I can’t help this feeling anymore
    I won’t go anywhere
    Maybe you’ll see me

    [ohhhhhhhhhh yeah]

    We are
    We are the shaken
    We are the monsters
    Underneath your bed
    Believe what you read
    We are
    We are mistaken
    We are the voices
    Inside your head
    Believe what you see

  174. Catherine

    Emily (#164)- the problem with Relient K is most of their songs are too happy and they don’t have any dark side to it, except for I Need You, which is a song about him needing God (they are a Christian band), so that wouldn’t exactly work (“When my hopes seem to dangle
    somewhere just beyond my reach,
    You say You’ve heard my prayers
    and read my words there on the beach.”).

    Allaboutthemusic (#172)- That’d be cool if a song by Flyleaf was up there. I’ve been listening to them ever since they were just some Christian band from Texas whom no one had heard about. 😛

  175. Jessica

    I think most people are only picking songs that reflect twilight well, but not thinking about THE END CREDITS which is what this song would be used for.

    Like, Time is Running out by Muse is an amazing song. And we all know Stephenie loves Muse. But it isnt a “credits” kind of song. You know?

    Anyway that’s just my opinion..

  176. Nora

    Phil Collins- Sussudio

    is the most dazzling song for Twilight.

    ~Twats!! ftw~~~

  177. Jess

    I am all for secondhand serenade-“vulnerable”. i love it. oh and if you’ve read new moon check out the song “broken” by secondhand as well. amazing. it even has a line that says “in the light your face it glows like a thousand diamonds.” haha meant to be

  178. Nancy

    Iris by the Goo goo dolls is perfect for Edward and Bella

  179. Mica

    Meg & Dia’s “Monster” would be a perfect choice i think. The lyrics and just the whole slightly angsty mood of the song give you the chills. Perfect vampire love song.

  180. Julia

    okay so there’s a song i think works great for New Moon, from Edward’s perspective, when he decides to leave Bella.

    Matchbook Romance: Tiger Lily
    we drive tonight,
    and you are by my side.
    we’re talking about our lives,
    like we’ve known each other forever.
    the time flies by,
    with the sound of your voice.
    it’s close to paradise,
    with the end surely near.
    and if i could only stop the car
    and hold onto you,
    and never let go (and never let go)
    i’ll never let go (i’ll never let go)
    as we round the corner
    to your house
    you turned to me and said,
    “i’ll be going through withdrawal of you
    for this one night we have spent.”
    and, i want to speak these words
    but i guess i’ll just bite my tongue,
    and accept “someday, somehow”
    as the words that we’ll hang from.

    and i (i..), i don’t want to speak these words.
    ’cause i (’cause i..), i don’t want to make things any worse.
    and i (i..), i don’t want to speak these words.
    ’cause i, i don’t want to make things any worse.

    why does tonight, have to end?
    why don’t we hit restart,
    and pause it at our favorite parts.
    we’ll skip the goodbyes.
    if i had it my way,
    i’d turn the car around and runaway,
    just you and i.

    and i (i..), i don’t want to speak these words.
    ’cause i (’cause i..), i don’t want to make things any worse. (any worse)
    and i (i..), i don’t want to speak these words
    ’cause i, i don’t want to make things
    and i, i don’t want to make things any worse

    and this next song is perfect for Eclipse, from Bella’s perspective (though kinda Edward’s too), when the two are discussing doing the “dirty deed”…if you know what i mean….

    Secondhand Serenade: Vulnerable
    Share with me the blankets that you’re wrapped in
    ’cause it’s cold outside
    its cold outside.
    Share with me the secrets that you’ve kept in
    ’cause It’s cold inside
    its cold inside.

    And your slowly shaking finger tips show
    that your scared like me so
    lets pretend we’re alone.
    And I know you may be scared
    and I know we’re unprepared but I don’t care.
    Tell me, tell me what makes you think that you are invincible.
    I can see it in your eyes that you’re so sure.
    Please don’t tell me that I’m the only one that’s vulnerable.

    I was born to tell you I love you
    isn’t that a song already?
    I get B in originality.
    And its true, I can’t go on without you.
    Your smile makes me see clearer
    if you could only see in the mirror what I see.

    And your slowly shaking finger tips show
    that your scared like me so
    lets pretend we’re alone.
    And I know you may be scared
    and I know we’re unprepared but I don’t care.
    Tell me, tell me what makes you think that you are invincible.
    I can see it in your eyes that you’re so sure.
    Please don’t tell me that I’m the only one that’s vulnerable.

    Slow down girl, you’re not going anywhere.
    Just wait around and see
    maybe I’m much more.
    You never know what lies ahead.
    I promise I can be anyone
    I can be anything.
    Just because you were hurt
    doesn’t mean you shouldn’t believe I can be anyone, anything.
    I promise I can be what you need.

    Tell me, tell me what makes you think that you are invincible.
    I can see it in your eyes that you’re so sure.
    Please don’t tell me that I’m the only one that’s vulnerable.

    sigh…..keep up the great work for song suggestions, everybody!

  181. Charlotte M.

    my choice:


  182. Macey C.

    I put Hero/Heroine by Boys Like Girls :]
    Maybe it’s just me haha
    You guys have some good song ideas though! =)

  183. Amy H.

    Well, I’m old sorta . . . 34. So, I’m a TwilightMom, of sorts. My pick is from my teen years – “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel.

  184. Ingrid

    I chose “Heaven Forbid” by the Fray, but some of you guys have much better suggestions.

    My favorite suggestions (from the comments so far):

    The Perishers – Nothing like you and I

    The Afters – Beautiful Love

  185. Ingrid

    Also! I really like this song (from Bella’s POV)

    Breathe Me- Sia

    I didn’t submit it though, as I don’t think it is right for the end credits- but it could probably go somewhere else.

  186. Liv

    I like mine…obviously that would be why I submitted it…

    “I’ll follow you into the dark” that’t just what Twilight is about [:

  187. Corrina W

    I am so stoked for Breaking Dawn! I’m literally counting the hours! But the song I picked is called Lullaby, the the Spill Canvas. You guys should really listen to it! It’s absolutely perfect, every single word!

  188. Sam

    That was really hard to choose! After a while I came up with this:

    1. Long Time Coming by Oliver James
    2. You’re My Angel by Switchfoot
    3. Every Time We Touch(slow version) by Cascada

    At least I’m not the only one who chose number 3! It’s comforting to know that I’m not crazy!!!

    Another song I really like but didn’t submit is First Time by Lifehouse

  189. Nora

    1. Jesus Christ by Brand New (More fitting for New Moon I suppose- In Edwards Perspective)
    2. As Lovers Go by Dashboard Confessional. (A really great song thats a story, except in Edward and Bella’s case the rolls are reversed)
    3. Thick as Thieves by Dashboad Confessional. (This is definitely Bella Talking to Edward.)
    ” If there’s a crime we’ll keep it secret
    For there’s only trace amounts left in your blood
    You may be a sinner
    But you may be justified” <–Little snipit, its chock full of relivant lines, as are the rest.

    Really just check out some of the lyrics, they are all really beautifull, especially Jesus Christ. I know I have some investigating to do myself.

  190. Samantha

    Personally, I think Twilight by Vanessa Carlton makes the most sense in relation to the novel. It reminds me of how everything about Bella changed from beginning to end:

    “I will never see the sky the same way,
    And I will learn to say goodbye to yesterday,
    And I will never cease to fly if held down,
    And I will always reach too high ’cause I’ve seen twilight…”

    Read all of the lyrics at LetsSingIt.com to understand precisely what I’m talking about.

    However, I’m going to have to agree with others on Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls, if the song I chose is not top ten. It gives the gist of Bella and Edward’s relationship.

  191. Samantha

    ….but isn’t the song supposed to be about the book as a whole? Hmmm, indeed it is. Haha.

  192. luana

    those songs are great! the song ‘fall to pieces’ by avril lavigne reminds me of chapter 27 of eclipse. & ‘keep holding on’ reminds me of new moon. Im not going to say one for twilight, because u guys said all of them (:

    wouldnt the piano solo from Corpse Bride be a lovely choice for bella’s song?

  197. Cheyenne

    I picked Seventeen Forever and Hero/Heroine for the top ten.

  198. Raquel K

    I wanted to submit Twilight by Vanessa Carlton, but I did’nt make it in time.
    Colors by Crossfade would be the best song for new moon, though.

  199. Kris

    how about stop and stare by one republic?

    what about “comatose” or “whispers in the dark” by skillet?..
    i relle think those songs would be good for twilight

    I run a music/tv website and I love things like this so thanks for doing it. I did a twilight vid a while back so it isn’t that great but I have gotten some great feedback on it and I used “Uninvited” by Alanis Morrisette, I am not a huge fan of her new stuff but if you think about the lyrics and the enchanting dissonance of the chords in the song it seems to link straight to the mood of the book, you can watch it here, feel free to comment it, I appreciate feedback. I am working on a new vid now to “All Around Me” so I chose that in the vote, but “Uninvited” is a great one!

    My vid:)

    Crashed by Daughtry

    When You Say You Love Me by Josh Groban

  205. Cierra

    The song “Vampire” by The Last Hour would be kick ass in the movie! Hopefully we will be hearing it in New Moon =)

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But
    he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous
    websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.

    net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!
