  2. sally

    Yay fun!

  5. tarin

    uh comment 3…is that real or a joke?
    just wondring…

  6. Sarah

    Keep your fingers crossed for Time Is Running Out!!!!

  7. Christine

    It was so hard to choose but the song i picked fits Twilight so perfectly. :D

  8. Georgia

    all these songs are very… emo – except muse and that leona girl but man that song is shocking.

    must we be so depressing? it’s a happy ending.

  9. Daina

    Some of these songs re annoying because I either dislike them (bleeding love) or son’t think they totalyl apply. But the ones left are SO close. Yikes. People found some really good songs. Now at least I have more to add to my playlist. :P

  10. Daina

    Woops, spelling mistakes. Typing too fast… ;) are* don’t* totally*

  11. Madds

    Muse! Must be Muse! I love that song with a passion and it so fits Twilight!!

    MUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSEMUSE

    Sorry. Had to be done =]

  12. izzatee

    This is hard!

    may the best song wins! :D

  13. Hazey

    This *is* hard. I’ve already voted for one, but I have no idea which other ones to vote for :P
    All the songs are great though, they fit really well. But I can’t imagine you had to go through 7000 entries, that’s some serious dedication!

  14. Cara C.

    i think some bands like Hellogoodbye and Metro Station and Boys Like Girls (though I don’t dislike them) just dont fit with the book. I think they’re too..poppy and bubbly…can’t really see edward and bella scenes with that kind of music

  15. Kate

    I can so see the movie being over, the credits coming on, and “Time is Running Out” playing over the credits.

    And then everyone in the audience screams. (That is going to be a FUN midnight showing.)

  16. Tonya

    Here’s one more vote for MUSE!!!!!! Time is Running Out fits Twilight nearly perfectly ^_^

  17. Tonya

    I’m voting for MUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Time is running out fits Twilight so well!

  18. Nicole

    Great songs! My Twilight playlist just grew. :) This is *really* hard! I am down to three that I really like. Great job submitting everyone and thanks Kaleb for doing this! YOU ROCK!!!

  19. Kayla

    I can’t believe that
    A.) The song I voted for got on the list!
    B.) I know and love most of the other candidates.
    Great Job!

  20. kassia

    I like the seventeen forever, I laughed when I read the title.

  21. someone

    Who’s idea was it to put bleeding love up there?! That song gets on my nerves and doesnt really apply to twilight. But every other song was an amazing pick!

  22. Mara-Kate

    OMG Iris is on there! I submitted/voted for tht one! -screams- :D Love that song, Muse is awesome too, tough choices Kaleb!

  23. Carla

    Wow, this is hard… They’re all great. Well, some are better *cough*Muse*cough*ThisIsForKeeps*cough* than others *cough*bleedinglove*cough* but in general you did a really great job… I’m gonnna have to think about this for a while before voting. What? Anyhting Twilight is really important! :D

  24. Melyssa

    I don’t think that a huge hit should be the song for Twilight… it should be something that isn’t overplayed and has more of an “indie” feel. Thats just what I think… :)

  25. julia

    Has anyone told you about The Walk, Imogen Heap? Cause if they haven’t, the song is totally Edward all the way.

    Oh, and voted, some songs, that I already guessed and some was…a surprise. Gonna vote again.

  26. Tiffany

    OMG OMG….squee!!!!!!
    LOL.
    Well, most of these songs’ lyrics fit the idea of Twilight very well for me, but if Bleeding Love wins, or we get stuck with some of the more pop-ey songs, I’m kicking someone. I do like This is for Keeps :].

  27. Ash is DA BOMB

    Why would someone put All Around Me by FlyLeaf? Its a sad song but its perfect for New Moon. I’m going for Lion by Rebecca St James because it describes Edward perfectly I have no Idea about muse though I’m just starting to listen to them ALSO Lion is not emo it is happy just listen to the lyrics

  28. Pick The Song For Twilight [Round 2]

    [...] Preview the Songs: [...]

  29. Kylie

    Aww yeah, “Iris” hands down. That’s the song I thought of when I first read the chapter in the first place. Plus, y’know, it’s the most beautiful, touching song that came out of the 90′s.

  30. Coco

    All Around Me is not a sad song…it describes Bella perfectly because all day everyday, Bella can feel Edward around her, whether is physically, mentally, or spirtually. Its gonna be hard to vote but I’m excited to find out which one will win! =]

  31. Hallie

    Your Guardian Angel, Hero/Heroine, and Lion fits Twilight perfectly! You need to look at the lyrics!

    I didn’t choose Time is Running Out by Muse because, well, it’s already in Stephenie Meyer’s playlist and I thought that was kind of cheap. I wanted to choose a different song!

    I agree! All Around Me is definitely a New Moon song!!

  32. CullenCrazy

    Lion, hands down! Not just in the chorus, but all the lyrics were almost written by Bella!

  33. Sara(Yeah there's many of us)

    I’m not votingbecause I LOVE them all, xD There all very perfect too many good choices. xD

  34. elle

    Yay! I voted 3 times on the first round and all 3 songs that I submitted were chosen as part of th top 10! (Who knew I was so predictable in my music choices…)
    This is so hard. I love all the top 10 songs except Bleeding Love and the dreadfully overplayed Hero/Heroine ughh, so I’m gonna have a difficult time voting.

  35. Sisi

    OME!!! your guardian angel is PERFECT! i totally am in love with red jumpsuit apparatus, and now i love it even more! haha. i really do NOT enjoy bleeding love, it annoys me greatly :( and i don’t seem to get a twilight-y feel from time is running out. the book isn’t about ‘is there enough time’ or anything. it’s about the fact that edward and bella [bella especially] will do ANYTHING for each other, if it means death, or pain, or separation! not time….

  36. Hayli

    honestly, i’m a huge fan of metro station and muse and rja, but after listening to the lyrics, heroheroine was absolutely perfect for twilight. i got the chills because i could see something related to bella and edward as i heard the lyrics and lsjgdalg its just perfect!

  37. Lauren

    I choose Flyleaf. The music is a good tone and emotional. But dang, Lion has perfect lyrics! The Lion is the angel..

  38. Kathy

    Kaleb–thanks so much for taking all this time to make all of us Twilight fans happy, when you’re not even quite finished with the book!

  39. K.T.

    I couldn’t choose, so i voted 3 times, for 3 different songs… it did say that you could vote three times!
    I picked:
    Hero/Heroine, for it’s perfect lyrics
    Time is Running Out, because, hello?, stephenie meyer herself put that on her playlist!
    aand i picked All Around Me, because it totally captures the atmosphere of the book!
    =] <3 =P

  40. Freak

    I really like Muse, but I don’t think Time Is Running Out describes the ENTIRE book. It definitely describes part of it though, so I guess I wouldn’t mind if that was THE song… I’d never heard “Lion” before, and that describes Edward almost perfectly… I don’t know, a lot of these songs could work! As long as it’s not “Bleeding Love”

  41. Sammy

    I think that the Muse song everybody is in love with is very good – but for the whole series. I personally think that “This Is For Keeps” by The Spill Canvas is the best. It fits the song soooo well!! Look it up on YouTube! Seriously! I’m totally voting for it on all three of my votes =D

    Kaleb, you rock dude! You went through so many songs and the songs you chose ROCK!! =D Great job and you must be incredibly dedicated. Thanks! :-)

  42. Christina

    ah, good choices.
    your amazing Kaleb.

  43. zumi

    there’s too many perfect songs!

  44. rach

    Yay! I voted! I have to say, this is reeaally hard. But I SOOOOOOOOOOO hope LION wins. It matches it PERFECTLY.

    sigh, but I don’t think it will, because it’s not a well known song… PEOPLE! GIVE LION A CHANCE! READ THE LYRICS AND LISTEN TO THE WHOLE SONG! EVERYTHING MATCHES! IT EVEN HAS “YOUR GENTLENESS MELTS ME” AND “I’M SCARED AND I’M NOT SURE YOU’RE SAFE/ BUT YOUR EYES SEEM TO SAY THAT YOU ARE GOOD”. IT’S AN AWESOME SONG!

    Anyway, as long as it’s not Bleeding Love (overrated) or Muse (i’m sorry, they’re a great band, but suddenly since stephenie says she loves it, everyone is screaming about it. Give other artists a chance!) I’m fine. I also like Iris. There’s my two cents!

  45. Brittney

    I voted for Lion. It really seems to fit it pretty good. But the Muse one and “This is for keeps” were pretty close too :D

  46. Rachel

    I don’t know, Time is running out is a good song, and I don’t think it should be an overly played-pop song, (like Bleeding Love, I hope that one doesnt win) but I like Hero/Heroin. I mean Edward eventells Bella that she is his brand of heroin right in the book, in the medow I’m pretty sure is where he said it. I like This is For Keeps alos, because Edward is all about forever and everything that comes with it.

  47. zumi

    I agree with Hallie that it’s kind of cheap to pick Muse because it’s on the playlist (but Muse is still a good band).
    Seventeen forever almost seems like it could fit the entire series though it fits just twilight pretty well.
    Your Gaurdian Angel is one of the best, I’d say. Because Edward is like Bella’s angel. The only bad part for the relationship is the “even if saving you sends me to heaven” because Edward doesn’t believe he should go to heaven.
    All Around me is a pretty awesome song.
    Here (in your arms) is good for the ending but not for the entire book.

  48. Erin

    I love Hero/Heroine and Your Guardian Angel. Iris is an amazing song, but i really don’t understand where it fits in with twilight? . If you really understand the lyrics, it’s sort of abut a bad breakup … and
    Metro Station is also an amazing band, but not for twilight Bleeding Love isn’t very good either . Lion has very relevant lyrics.

  49. Erin

    OMG .
    DID NOT LOOK AT THE WHOLE LIST
    THE SPILL CANVAS!
    ALL THE WAY!

  50. Alli

    These are ok. I’m sad that neither of my picks (“Everytime We Touch” by Cascada and “Can’t Help Falling in Lone with You” by Elvis-you can’t go wrong with Elvis!) got in, but I voted for “Your Guardian Angel” and “Lion”. I listened to these clips and then searched for the ones that sounded ok on youtube. I couldn’t find Lion for a long time because I kept using the artist’s name as Rachel instead of Rebecca. I like “Here in Your Arms” but there wasn’t much to the song
    (in terms of verses) and I couldn’t understand the chorus without lyrics.

  51. Alli

    oops! as if it wasn’t obvious, that Elvis song is supposed to be “Can’t Help Falling in LOVE With You” not “lone”. by the way, “This is for keeps” does not make sense to me as being for Twilight. I’m not saying it’s a bad song, and yes, it’s clearly about a vampire, but that’s the problem. It uses the word “fangs” in the first verse, and the vamp in the song clearly wants to turn this girl. Edward is set on keeping Bella human for all of Twilight.

  52. Amy

    I think that Bleeding Love should be for New Moon if they every turn that one into a movie! :)

  53. Amy

    Oh and also, I voted for Seventeen forever in the first round! :D I was surprised and really happy to see it up there because that usually doesn’t happen to me!!

  54. Stephanie

    I must say, the top ten choices are so cliche it’s not even funny. I must say that I wasn’t very enthused with the top ten choices. I would have liked the fans of twilight to be a little more creative. Yes, Time is Running Out by Muse is one of my favorites, but yet, we all know that this song describes twilight. I would have liked to see people have a little more fun and creativity with this.
    I was pleasently surprised that Spill Canvas and Rebecca St. James made the list, and I enjoyed those choices.
    But the other choices, Metro Station, Boys Like Girls, Leona Lewis. I have to say that those were a slight let down to the minds of those with some taste in good music. I’m not saying that I don’t like some of those bands, but twilight doesn’t deserve some overplayed pop crud that is on MTV 24/7. THE FANS OF TWILIGHT SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST SOME TASTE IN GOOD MUSIC OTHER THEN THIS LUDICROUS OVERPLAYED HIGH-FELUTININ NONSENSE!!!!!

  55. Stephanie

    this is me again, i forgot to say what i think would be a better song. (this would be Stephanie from comment 54).
    My recommendation is “This Wasn’t Supposed to Happen -
    Sugarcubes”.
    This describes basically everything Bella is feeling towards Edward. It is a wonderful song that I think best describes the book. Plus, it isn’t an overplayed ludicrous high-felutinin nonsense of a song. :)

  56. Jess

    It’s a tough choice seeing as how every single love song that has ever been written could apply to the book. I love Iris though….

  57. Melissa

    I like almost all of these songs for Twilight! Some, like Iris, will only ever have one meaning for me though. But I’ve always thought Your Guardian Angel was a good fit. It’s a tough choice though…

  58. Willa

    I do agree that Time is Running Out fits, but I just think the lyrics to Lion by Rebecca St. James were written for Twilight!!! Go check them out, especially the first verse.

  59. Caitlyn

    I thought some choices were good, and some were overplayed. I like the title of Seventeen Forever, but the lyrics go “Won’t be seventeen forever/So we can get away with this tonight”

  60. Michelle

    Your Guardian Angel is the PERFECT song for Twilight!! If you really read the lyrics, it relates perfectly to the book. I voted for it the first round and voted for it again. Go RJA!!!

  61. Ashley

    All of these songs are really amazing picks. Its going to be really hard to choose just one! I wish we could see the results as people vote; I want to know what everyone is choosing!

    It was really hard for me to vote, with the Goo Goo Dolls, Boys Like Girls, Muse, and the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus on the list. They’re all amazing songs. (Plus Hero/Heroine is my favorite song ever). But in the end I had to go with “Lion” because the song suits Twilight to a t.

  62. Maddie

    This is such a great idea! I love all the songs, but the one problem with “Time Is Running Out” is the fact that it’s on Stephenie’s actual playlist, which makes it not too original. But it does fit the book so well! Luv them all! :D

  63. Gyllian

    ok This is fo keeps is definately the best song in my opinion.

  64. andrea

    GUYS I KNOW THIS MIGHT BE OOF TOPIC BUT SOMEONE POSTED A DVD SNEAK PEAK OF THE TWILIGHT TRAILER. IF YOU WANT TO SEE IT HERE IT IS http://www.youtube.com/user/Vivi051387

  65. Megan

    ugh why does everyone like Muse? oh well i voted for Spill Canvas, Goo Goo Dolls & Boys Like Girls

    *crosses fingers*

  66. Audrey

    Woo! My song choice made it to round 2! Metrostation ftw ;P The lyrics do fit from Edward’s perspective, and it captures the essential conflict in Twilight. Plus, I thought a popular, upbeat song would be great for the ending of Twilight (assuming its the Prom scene).

    I can’t imagine how hard it was for you to narrow it down to 10, Kaleb. I find it real hard to just choose three.

    But I like Muse. I don’t care if it’s on Stephenie’s playlist, it fits Twilight perfectly, which cannot be said for some of these that made it up there (Bleeding love? whaa?).

  67. Hallie

    To Andrea: OMG!!! I watched that clip a couple of hours ago and I completely died!! I immediately showed it to my friend and she screamed! Robert is absolutely amazing, I love that guy <33 I knew he would make a great Edward! Ha! to all those who doubted him. =)

    and it’s not a trailer, it’s one of the scenes in the movie, and they are AMAZING! Robert is adorable *swoons over him*

  68. Hallie

    I have to say that these are GREAT choices. Good job fellow twilight guy readers. :p

    I honestly like the Lion song. Its one of the few that are sung by a girl. I know that’s kinda weird, but the way I look at it, the book is from Bella’s point of few. Essentially, it’s following her life story, not anyone elses. It’s about her. It’s easier to connect a song sang by a girl to twilight. Maybe it’s just me? I could be crazy. :p

    Anyways, the lyrics to that song are perfect. That one and Gaurdian Angel are my two favorite. I like the Muse song too, but I agree that it doesn’t apply to the whole book as well.

  69. Hallie

    Woah TWO HALLIE’S IN A ROW! That’s pretty freaky. :p

    To Audrey and Hallie: THAT IS THE BEST CLIP EVER!!! Robert is perfect, and no one can deny that. :p

  70. Hallie #1

    Omg, that’s hilarious xD and we both picked 2 of the same songs too!

    and yes, Robert is perfect. <3

  71. Katie ~

    Your guardian angel is the best out of these, hands down. Personally, I think that Several songs by Lifehouse like Learn You Inside Out and a song by Dashboard Confessional, Rooftops and Invitations, are better choices, but out of these I vote for red jumpsuit apparatus.

  72. Sam

    c’mon. Lion fits Twilight perfectly all the way..

  73. Shanelle

    i dont know what lion is but i totally sugested “Your Guardian Angel” n i cant believe that it made it all the way to the top ten which i am so proud of. i was also hoping that “Only Hope” by Mandy Moore was going to make it but Your Guardian Angel is #1 all the way.

  74. Jazzy

    DUDE! i totally suggested “All Around Me” heheheh i LOVE that song! im soo xcited! i luv ur site! cant wait till u read new moon! (cuz i totally have a song suggestion for chapter three!) cant wait for ur next post!

  75. Catherine

    Lion fits perfectly.

  76. Annie

    wow. this is definetely really hard. i went through all the songs and listened to each one, looked up the lyrics and thought about how they fit into twilight and if i enjoyed it or not. and i had this whole paper of comments on each song and everything. it’s so hard to actually choose only 3 songs. and a lot of people liked time is running out. i listened to it once and i though “nahh.” but then i saw how many people actually voted for it based on the comments and i went to look at the lyrics without the music and then i ran into trouble cause now i have 4 songs that i like. so then i decided to listen to everything again and write comments on a sheet of paper about each one and the parts that seemed to stick with twilight.

    it was so hard for me! and i’m amazed that you managed to actually go through more than 5,000 songs and pick only 10!

    good luck to the songs that are best fitted!!!

  77. Annie

    ok. now i have to rant about LION.
    IT FITS TWILIGHT PERFECTLY. the lyrics are like made for the book!

    “what a sick, masochistic lion.”

    gosh i hope this one wins!

  78. Bree

    I chose Bleeding love by Leona Lewis. I think it describes Bella almost perfectly.

    Examples:

    Lyrics
    “They try and pull me away but they don’t know the truth”

    I think that would talk about Jacob, other boys ect., Charlies, Billy and so on trying to get her away from Edward but they don’t know that she loves him with all of her heart.

    Lyrics
    “Something happened for the very first time with you, my heart melted to the ground found something true,”

    This could be when she first kissed him, or the first time he stayed in her room.

  79. Shelley b.

    I love all the songs, but I vered to the songs that would be more of Bella’s POV. Except for the song my Red Jumpsuit Apparatus; it has more of an Edward attitude but it still fits with Twilight MOSTLY as a whole.

    But some of the songs had more of a pop/techno genre and to me that sort of genre doesn’t fit Twilight.

  80. JanetH

    I voted for This is for Keeps but I wonder if it made it to the list due to fans who have read ALL THREE books. I think it will be ideal for book 3. But thinking as Kaleb instructed, for a song to play at the end of the book, I think this one would be really great.

  81. Meghann

    Gr-eth. The song I submitted was up there but I’m kicking myself in the butt right now. I can’t believe that I didn’t think of Hero/Heroine for the song cause
    1–It is one of the songs in my twilight playlist
    and
    2–Boys Like Girls is like my favorite band
    I think that song is way to perfect if you listen to the lyrics closely…

  82. Cameryn Rose

    Great, now I’m downloading 50 songs… (Legally, of course, through Rhapsody.) Yeah. I go to download the 4-5 of these I don’t have already (though I think one of them– which a lot of others have mentioned not liking– will be deleted after about three seconds) and then I end up downloading the rest of the ones by The Spill Canvas. (I love their song Lullaby. It’s one of my favorite songs.)
    Speaking of Muse, there’s an awesome classical version of Time is Running Out on YouTube. Cello quartet, I think. Seriously, any song can be improved with a classical version– that’s confirmed by a decent version of Barbie Girl, but maybe it’s just lack of lyrics there….
    I ramble too much… Anyway, then, I’ve finally picked three out of the 9 that I love.

  83. Brendan

    “Iris,” is the perfect song for Twilight. There are some others that are close, but The Goo Goo Dolls have take it.

  84. Alana

    These are all great, but I agree that the song should sound like it’s from Bella’s perspective, as does the book. I picked “Lion” because of this and its otherworldly tone. Besides, the lyrics are asolutely perfect, every line.

  85. Kayla C

    YESS!!! The one I wanted is up there!!! WOOT!!! The others all come in 2nd but the one I chose is just PERFECT! Please listen to them all carefuly and imagine Bella and Edward when you do… Can you really picture this song in the background??? I TOTALLY CAN!!! AWESOME!!! Thanks for doing this man! LOVE YA! GOOD LUCK MY FAV SONG!

  86. Meredith

    I voted for Your Guardian Angel, All Around Me, and Iris. All three work amazingly.

  87. Jenova

    Is it just me, or is the Bleeding Love clip longer than all the other ones?? Hmm…
    I just wonder how much more traffic these listed bands are getting on iTunes and Limewire :P I know I’m downloading them all, practically – so many of them (well, pretty much all) fit perfectly with Twilight. Good choices, Twilighters!
    I have to say I really like that song Lion, as well as Hero/Heroine – but I think This Is For Keeps has the most appropriate lyrics. I’ll probably change my mind, but anyway :)

    I’m also totally suprised at how Bleeding Love fits with the story! I was like, “What? Leona Lewis made it on this list??” but when I listened to it in the context of the contest, it made so much sense. Anyone else have this revelation?

  88. LC

    Kaleb you definetly have patience and will power my friend! Keep doing what you’re doing…Your’e awesome!

    I personally love all the songs and each relate to the series in their way. But as i voted i had to think of only twilight, that knocked like three songs out…..Then i had think of which songs screams Bellas voice through the lyrics, resembles what she feels through the whole book, and still tells me about Edward (That part was Vital)….So in the end that brought me to one…..LION….And i voted! But i also put down “seventeen forever”,even though it’s in edwards view…it still matches the book in many areas! And then Here(In Your Arms), obviously cause of the ending, but it still reminds me of a lot of other scenes in the book! So yeah!

    Good luck choosing everyone!

    Plus: Thanks for the Clip!

  89. Millie

    Sweet! The song I suggested made the list! “This is for Keeps” by The Spill Canvas. I totally love Muse (I mean I really do!) but to describe Twilight as a whole I don’t think Muse cuts it. Twilight at its core is really a love story. I think “Time is running out” is better suited for Eclipse.

    “This is for Keeps” FTW!

  90. J. Lynn

    I just want to say that I liked Lion and Hero/Heroine equally for Bella and Edward, Lion for Bella and Hero/Heroine for Edward. Which is why I voted for Lion for Twilight, because it’s from Bella’s POV. If this is ever done for Midnight Sun, I’d vote for Hero/Heroine. Make sense?

    So, go Lion!!! :)

  91. becky sue

    Seventeen forever because bella WONT be seventeen forever like edward… AND hero/heroine because when i hear it i think of heroin. as in “youre exactly my brand of heroin.” The lyrics to both work perfectly also!!

  92. Bianca

    OME! Lion is PERFECT…

    Besides the fact that the lyrics seemed to be specifically written with Twilight in mind, it is not the typical lovey-dovey song (both the tune and the lyrics), but has a mysterious ring to it all, which perfectly fits Edward and Bella’s whole relationship… because it is far from typical.

    …and so the LION fell in love with the lamb…

  93. Erin

    I’m voting for “Seventeen Forever” because I think that it really gets the meaning of the first book perfectly.

    Plus, I love Metro Station

  94. Bee

    Wow, I would have thought that we would have had some different songs. I mean no offense to metro station or leona lewis but Twilight doesn’t strike me as the Top 20 hit songs in the US kinda book. I’d say either Muse Goo Goo Dolls or RJA.

  95. Tessa

    Your Guardian Angel sounds more like a Jacob song for me. I used to think it’s from Edward’s POV, but then I read NM and listened to the lyrics again…

    “..cause you’re my true love…please don’t throw that away..
    ..cause I’m here for you..
    ..please don’t walk away..
    ..and please tell me you’ll stay..”

    c’mon…it’s oozing with Jacobness!! we all know Bella’s gonna end up with Edward (fingers crossed) and this is just Jacob begging her to be with him!

    so I’m saving this song for New Moon..lol

  96. Nora

    Im glad the spill canvas song got through, though I am am annoyed that so many contemporary mainstream artists are picked, but i understand becuase those have the most votes. I just feel like you shouldnt just pick your favorite song, and some of these are just to peppy for the seriousness of the book.

    I’m voting Spill Canvas, becuase, apart from it being abotu vampires, the tone and lyrics both fit.

    Also you dont have to pick an “emo” one just becuase you thing the book is emo.

  97. Claudia

    almost every song up there applies to twilight the first one i picked was “this is for keeps” that song is perfect and of course muse then flyleaf… but after reading the comments im getting a feeling that muse will win…

  98. Megan

    Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls is an amazing song. i also like the MUse one, but i dont want it to win because its on SM’s page and practically its choosen almost all the time. eh oh well =/

  99. Sarah

    Hey, its comment number six again. I chose Time Is Running Out because you have that whole feeling throughout the entire book, not just when James was tracking Bella. First it was mentioned when Edward tells Bella he cares more for her because he could walk away. Next when he confesses he went to Denali. Then, throughout the rest you get the impression he has no intention of changing Bella. Edward waits for the ‘running and screaming’ part. Lastly, we find out later from Alice that Edward never intented to out live Bella. He agonizes while Bella sleeps whether to break it off to keep her from harm. And then in New Moon, Jasper inadvertenly makes the decision for him. So it can’t of been that big of a shock when Edward left Bella. With little hints all throughout Twilight, you get the feeling Edward might not stick around. That’s why I chose TIRO because in the end it really does.

  100. Sarah

    I apologize for my massive block of text. Sorry!!! :)

  101. Hazey

    Forgetting about the competition for a minute ;) , I can’t believe I’ve never heard Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls. What an amazing song.

    Oh, and the lyrics from ‘Lion’ fit Twilight perfectly!

  102. Jasmine***

    OME this is an amazing list of songs!
    they are all really good for the twilight series but i think some songs are not very suitable for the first book… for example AAM by flyleaf/ its perfect for new moon but not really for twilight (in my opinion). nyway may the best song win!

  103. melissahope

    ome!
    All Around Me!
    BEST SONG EVER!!!
    and Your Gaurdian Angel!
    i can play that on piano!
    and Metro Station rocks!
    and Hero/Herione is an amazing song!
    love it!
    love them all!
    ilykaleb.
    peace.

  104. melissahope

    i agree w/ Tessa(#95)
    Your Gaurdian Angel has always been my ‘Bella/Jacob’ song.

  105. Megan

    Audrey-

    that’s a really good idea! that song (seventeen forever) would be so perfect for the prom scene/ending of Twilight. it will totally throw the non-Twilight audience, thinking that Bella we be turned that night but of course we fans know better ;)

  106. AiriFox

    LOL, I submitted “This is For Keeps” in the preliminary round as well. I hate to say it, but alot of the songs just don’t seem to fit. I mean, I like Metro Station and Flyleaf but those songs just don’t feel very ‘Twilight’-y, be it in terms of the lyrics or the general tone.

    But, eh. That’s my two cents.

  107. Filipa

    I love them all! When I saw the list I was like: oh boy, this is going to be difficult… I wonder what will feel like voting in the top 3 :S

    The Spill Canvas, Metro Station and Rebecca Saint James for me ;) ! <3

  108. Jessica

    Is there any way to see the current stats?!

    I really hope bleeding love doesnt win. its too mainstream.

    but seriously. I really want to know where each song stands!

  109. Kaleb Nation

    Okay, I realize that I didn’t get a voting thing that shows you the current results, so here’s some of the positions now:

    Your Guardian Angel and Time Is Running Out are exactly tied. EXACTLY the same number of votes, literally. Iris is just below them, then Lion. The others are nearby, but less than those. Keep voting!

  110. Katie ~

    Is anyone voting for Here(in your arms)? Just wondering cuz no one seems to be commenting on that song. I personally don’t think it fits really well, either, but I was just wondering if anyone has an argument for it. Everyone is proving really good points for the other songs, but not this one. I think this song may come in last.

  111. Katie ~

    Yay! Your Guardian angel is up there! Thanks for the update, Kaleb!

  112. Anjanie

    Well, I chose Time is Running Out also, even though it’s already on her playlist. But, I mean, part of the lyrics are actually IN the book. When Edward and Bella are going to the baseball field, and she kisses him all “enthusiastically” he says something like “you’ll be the death of me”. And I just thought it was too weird that the exact same lyrics are in that song. I think it captures the intensity of the book. So, there’s my two cents…

  113. Shahala

    If you haven’t read the lyrics to This is For Keeps.. you are voting a for the wrong song!! Here is a sample (just so you’ll understand)::
    The streets are dark, my pulse is flat-lined
    as I’m running to you
    You sit completely unaware of what I’m about to do
    The air is thick with tension much like when we are together
    My fangs are aching as I’m pondering about you and I forever….Eternity will never be enough for me
    and eternally we’ll live our infallible love…
    Read the rest and vote for the best!!

  114. SM

    VOTE HERO/HEROINE is matches PERFECTLY to the book (mostly edward, but still):

    I never thought that you could break me apart
    I keep a sinister smile and a hold of my heart

    I feel like a hero and you are my heroine
    Do you know that your love is the sweetest sin?

    And I feel a weakness coming on
    Never felt so good to be so wrong
    Had my heart on lockdown
    And then you turned me around
    I’m feeling like a new born child
    Every time I get a chance to see you smile
    It’s not complicated
    I was so jaded

    thats just some of the lyrics, if you listen to the entire song you will see how it matches up to the book.

  115. Ash is DA Bomb!

    Mysterious
    That’s what I call You
    I’m curious about You
    I’m scared and not sure that You are safe
    But Your eyes seem to say that You are good

    Chorus
    This is not a dream that I’m living
    This is just a world of Your own
    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    Wise eyes, You see the core of me
    Your gentleness melts me
    And now I know that words cannot describe
    The power that I feel when I’m with You

    Chorus
    This is not a dream that I’m living
    This is just a world of Your own
    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is

    Peace and power, love forever
    Who am I to stand before You?
    I am speechless
    But in my weakness
    You are here and all is well

    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    Chorus
    This is not a dream that I’m living
    This is just a world of Your own
    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    is an angel

    It’s PERFECT!! come on ppl Vote for Lion!!!

  116. Shannah

    I personally love Time Is Running Out (plus I’m a HUGE Muse fan) and it fits Twilight perfectly, but like someone said it’s on Stephenie’s playlist and that does seem kinda cheap to like, use it again. And I’ve always thought This Is For Keeps and Twilight were like, a match made in heaven, plus that song is really underrated as is The Spill Canvas, so that’s what I voted for!

  117. Hannah

    I personally thought this list was a bt of a let down. That Leona Lewis and Metro Station made it on is sort of a tip off, really i would have loved to have seen some less well-known bands that aren’t all up in the Pop scene. I forget who said it, but a Dashboard Confessional song would have been great, but i think the best Dashboard song for Twilight would have been The Secret’s in the Telling

  118. Jane

    I just want to say that Iris is the BEST SONG EVER, but it isn’t really Twilight related, and i guess a lot of people don’t understand the song? Yes it’s a love song, but it’s more about the pain of parting. Also, I hope we do this for New Moon and Eclipse as well, because Bruised – Jack’s Mannequin is the BEST New Moon song EVER!!

  119. Erin

    sorry to post AGAIN, but i’ve been reading through the comments and I just wanted to add something onto what Cameryn Rose said. “Lullaby” by The Spill Canvas is an incredible song, and i recommend everyone here listen to it, because it totally fits in with what i’d imagine Edward’s lullaby for Bella would be (only with lyrics). Whenever i read about the lullaby in the book, i always think of this song. So check it out!

  120. nancy

    I voted for Iris, but maybe it’s cause I’ve jusy been in love with the song for EVER…but Time is Running Out would probably be best. Bleeding Love would work for New Moon, not Twilight though… dunno why it’s up there. I don’t really like Metrostation and Here in Your Arms is just… eh. All Around Me is an annoying song, I don’t think it particularly fits, and I sort of hate Your Guardian Angel, although the lyrics would connect to Twilight overall I guess.
    That’s just my 2 cents :]

  121. Emily

    I voted for Lion. I love the song. I don’t know why Bleeding Love is up there… It doesn’t really fit. I had a lot of trouble picking, but I ended up choosing one of few that was from Bella’s point of view and related to Twilight. Why are so many of the songs from Edward’s point of view when the book is written from Bella’s?

  122. kassia

    #54 Kate-

    It IS going to be a great midnight showing. All the fangirls will be there, and we can all squeal at everything.

  123. Maddy

    ok. i think the muse song is good for the book. but everyone knows that one. and its even on her playlist! why dont we try to get a song that isn’t so famous for the book? i think iris is perfect!

  124. Elizabeth

    I agree with comment 99. You get the feeling of time running out through most of Twilight. And also, I don’t think it’s that bad that the song is Stephenie’s playlist. And sure, the band seems much more popular after Stephenie said they were her favorite, but I was a Muse fan even before I knew who Stephenie Meyer was.

  125. Elizabeth

    And also as an add on to comment 99, in the first half of Twilight, Bella would get the feeling that while Edward was saying something else, he was really trying to say goodbye.

  126. Caitlin

    THIS IS FOR KEEPS BY THE SPILL CANVAS.
    FTW.

    Honestly..like people have said before me, read the lyrics. The song is about a vampire.
    Perfection..?
    I think yes.
    :D

  127. SEW

    I couldn’t agree more with the comment ninety-nine. Instead of looking into the the song, you need to look into the BOOK for them to match up. I also felt like that was a more dominant mood in the book, though not seen so much in the end. Time Is Running Out all the way!!!

  128. SEW

    Also, the book is through Bella’s perspective, not Edward’s, so doesn’t really make sense for a song that could of been Edward’s to win. We see the worry through BELLA’S eyes. A song describing her awe for him or fear of losing him makes much more sense.

  129. Alli

    I just want to restate what I said in comment 51 for anyone that didn’t notice it: “This is for keeps” does not make sense to me as being for Twilight. I’m not saying it’s a bad song, and yes, it’s clearly about a vampire, but that’s the problem. It uses the word “fangs” in the first verse,(don’t you remember that Edward doesn’t have fangs?!) and the vamp in the song clearly wants to turn this girl. Edward is set on keeping Bella human for all of Twilight. Open your ears and eyes people!

  130. wes

    I totally agree with the comment above me. Also though, with comment 6 especially. The first comment for the Muse song. Time Is Running Out all the way!!!

  131. Sarah

    I was reading through the comments again. Come on people, do you really not know Twilight? Just think about what I’ve said and the others for TIRO.

  132. Arielle

    “Your Guardian Angel,” fits perfectly with Edward and Bella! I actually hadn’t heard the song until I saw it on the list. I listened to the entire song, and decided that its the most fitting on the list! But anyway, awesome selection of songs. They all fit. Allthough, I admit, I’m not much of a Muse fan. Anyway, “YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL” ALL THE WAY!

  133. wes

    Likes how the girl above and below me thinks.

  134. wes

    Not Arielle, Sarah

  135. wes

    Whatever, it got all messed up with comment 132. Ignore comment 133

  136. Angelica

    Oh crap, I’m going to have to with either Hero/Heroine, All Around Me (sort of), or Here (In Your Arms). Bleeding Love is okay too, but I don’t think it really describes Twilight well. Bella really hasn’t had anyone break her heart before….and besides Leona Lewis’s voice irritates me, as does the song.

  137. Amy H.

    Blleding Love is an annoying song, and SO overplayed / over-marketed everywhere! I wish she would just bleed out so she couldn’t keep singing about all the love she’s bleeding! Enough already!!!!!

  138. Stephanie

    yeah….i voted for the spill canvas (i was the one who suggested it) because when you read the lyrics its like edwards perpective of twilight and fits how the story goes perfectly….plus the song is really good…i like muse…but time is running out doesnt really seem to fit twilight for me….

  139. Anna

    EVERYONE VOTE FOR MUSE! MUSE MUSE MUSE MUSE MUSE MUSE! Best band in the universe, and that song is sexy as hell ;D

    i voted my three times, now you do yours :) Muse!

    *exited fan*

  140. sarabeth

    I don’t like the song Your Guardian Angel as everyone else does. To me, its’s kinda annoying and has a corny title. Like Lion does.

  141. sarabeth

    Yeah, I definitely agree with Anna.

  142. Tina

    In my opinion I don’t think Your Guardian Angel describes Twilight as well as some of the other songs. I get what you guys are thinking but some point in the song it says “…Even if saving you sends me to heaven…” and Edward thinks heaven is the exact opposite place he’ll end up… Though I really liked Seventeen forever by Metro Station, the lyrics were practically written for the book :D

  143. Makayla

    Iris is one of the sweetest songs I’ve ever heard.
    I was happy to see it was one of the initial songs I voted for in Round 1.

    I’ve always loved that song, and it fits Twilight perfectly.

    Vote for the Dolls!!!

  144. Willa

    I think Time Is Running Out is good, but it’s already on her playlist. For this I think we should choose something original.

  145. Allison

    I really liked the muse song. the lyrics fit really well and i can imagine it playing during the end credits. Also Lion really made me think of alice and jasper, and how she made him feel hope. Some of the songs have great lyrics but time is running out just nailed it. Muse has my vote.

  147. gina

    OMG!!!! the song i submitted got on..wow!! :D
    i voted for three coz i couldnt pick-
    1)LION!! has anybody rad the lyrics i mean honestly, the lyrics are like made for twilight!!
    2)TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!! it even quotes the book “youll be the death of me”…im not a muse fan..neva heard of them till i read it on stephenie meyer’s site but i mean its catchy and the lyrics r awesome
    3)the one i originally submitted..BLEEDING LOVE!!! yet again, the lyrics…its saysing she loves a guy and people tryna pull her away and think shes crazy!!
    you guys may not agree with me but im loving those 3 songs to the max.!!!!

  148. Malerie

    lion, this is for keeps, your guardian angel, and time is running out are just good in general with really fitting lyrics. twilight is written in bellas view so I think lion fits the best and I voted for it. it sounds like its written by her. its not depressing at all, look up the lyrics! the others are sung by guys or they were too much of a pop sound. to me that genre doesn’t fit for twilight (like someone said up there) dont get me wrong they still are good songs with good lyrics. lion to me is just better suited. I think bleeding love fits new moon rather than twilight

  149. Kaitlin

    I picked All Around Me because i think that it really represents what bella feels about edward. I’m really glad that Hero/Heroine and Iris are on there too. And i like Bleeding Love but i really don’t understand why it was on the list. It really doesn’t describe twilight at all. I probably wouldn’t mind if lion won. I’ve never heard it before but is sounds promising.

  150. Tiffany D

    This is for Keeps by the Spill Canvas just matches so perfectly, and the music seems to fit pretty well with the book. I can picture Edward playing it. (Most of) the others match pretty well too, but Keeps just seems more fitting to me, especially if you hear the entire song, instead of just a short clip. I don’t know, it was hard to choose. There are a couple that will greatly disappoint me if one of them wins.

  151. Eliza

    I don’t know why everyone keeps choosing songs they think are perfect for Edward when the entire book is from Bella’s perspective.

  152. Eliza

    All I know is that if a song that totally ‘matches’ Edward, or that doesn’t deserve to be up there wins, it would be a major letdown.

  153. Emily

    I totally agree with Ali in comment 129. I felt the same way! I actually stopped listening when I heard the lyric “my fangs are aching as I’m pondering you and I forever”

  155. gina

    i also fully agree with emily and ali in comments 129 and 153, i agree that its about vampires and its realted with twilight but honestly, fangs? there a HUGE no no in the twilight saga!!!

  156. Heather

    I feel that Lion is PERFECT!!! Doesnt anyone else see that this is the song that TOTALLY discribes Twilight!

  157. Lauren

    i’m definitely set on the fact that “All Around Me” by Flyleaf is the absolute perfect song for Twilight.
    It gives me goosebumps when i hear it. . .

  158. Katie ~

    To Comment #117 Hannah – thats funny because I submitted The Secret’s in the Telling for round one of this contest! I think that would have been a good choice for Twilight, but oh well.

  159. Kyleigh

    I’m sorry but I think that Time is Running Out is better fit for New Moon and not really Twilight… Just for anyone who thought that was like the perfect song. Sorry again for anyone who really likes that song for Twilight.

  160. Ash

    Definitely Lion by Rebecca St. James – word for word Bella’s story in twilight “Mysterious, that’s what I call You; I’m curious about You; I’m scared and not sure that You are safe; But Your eyes seem to say that You are good”. Some of the others are good songs too but I think they are more appropriate for New Moon (i.e, Time is Running Out). I really don’t think there’s much competition here!

  161. Sage

    YAY! I chose lion by rebecca st. james in the first round, and i’m so suprised to see it up there! I didn’t think anybody would vote for it because it’s not well known, but I guess I was wrong :D

  162. Katie ~

    no one has posted the lyrics for Your Guardian Angel, so here they are, for anyone interested. This song does a pretty good job of summing up Edward’s feelings for Bella. He would do anything for her, even if in doing so he was killed and his 100 year long life was ended. He’s willing to give that up, because he wants to protect her. He’s her guardian angel, and will always look out for her and be her superhuman knight in shining armor. He’s so selfless, and I think this song really reflects that. Anyway, here are the lyrics:

    When I see your smile
    Tears run down my face
    I can’t replace
    Now that I’m strong I have figured out

    how this world turns cold
    And breaks through my soul
    and I know I’ll find deep inside me
    I can be the one

    I will never let you fall
    I’ll stand up with you forever
    I’ll be there for you through it all
    even if saving you sends me to heaven

    It’s ok

    Seasons are changing and waves are crashing
    and Stars are falling all for us
    Days grow longer and nights grow shorter
    I can show you I’ll be the one

    I will never let you fall
    I’ll stand up with you forever
    I’ll be there for you through it all
    even if saving you sends me to heaven

    ’cause you’re my,your my,
    my true love
    my whole heart
    please don’t throw that away
    ’cause I’m here for you
    please don’t walk away and
    please tell me you’ll stay

    use me as you will
    put my strength’s just for a thrill
    and I know I’ll be ok
    though my skies are turning grey

    I will never let you fall
    I’ll stand up with you forever
    I’ll be there for you through it all
    even if saving you sends me to heaven

  163. Katie ~

    sorry bout the long comment!

  164. Heather Cullen

    EEEWWWWWWWWWWW LEONIA LEWIS? WHO VOTED FOR THAT?! Vote for LION REBECA ST JAMES AND MUSE AWESOME!!!!!!!!

  165. EDWARD

    Does anyone know how perfect ion is for twilight as a WHOLE!!

    “Lion”
    Mysterious
    That’s what I call You
    I’m curious about You
    I’m scared and not sure that You are safe
    But Your eyes seem to say that You are good

    Chorus
    This is not a dream that I’m living
    This is just a world of Your own
    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    Wise eyes, You see the core of me
    Your gentleness melts me
    And now I know that words cannot describe
    The power that I feel when I’m with You

    Chorus
    This is not a dream that I’m living
    This is just a world of Your own
    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is

    Peace and power, love forever
    Who am I to stand before You?
    I am speechless
    But in my weakness
    You are here and all is well

    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    Chorus
    This is not a dream that I’m living
    This is just a world of Your own
    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    is an angel

    PLEASE PLEASE VOTE FOR THIS SONG ITS PERFECT!!!!!!!

  166. Eliza

    Here’s why I don’t think Your Guardian Angel should win. First, Edward cannot shed tears. Edward does not believe he has a soul. Edward doesn’t believe he can go to heaven at all. ‘I’ll stand up for you forever’ doesn’t make sense because he isn’t prepared tp damn Bella to an eternity of being a vampire. And even though Edward craves Bella’s company, he’d much rather her walk away for her safety in Twilight. Edward struggles enough as it is against Bella’s blood, so why would he want her to make it harder for him? ‘Use me as you will; put my strengths’ just for a thrill?’ I don’t think Edward’s that big of a masochist. And finally, Twilight is entirely from Bella’s perspective, so why does it seem that every one is looking for the perfect Edward song? And I actually don’t think it is because I’m pretty sure Edward wouldn’t be so happy or joyous or whatever feeling the song is trying to portray. He is, afterall, a brooding vampire with lots of time on his hands. :)

  167. Claudia..

    This Is For Keeps definitely! It matches so well with Edward’s perspective, it’s his song!. I really like the Muse, but not for Twilight as much as The Spill Canvas. C’MON! read the lyrics, i know you’ll think immediately of Edward.

  168. Claudia..

    OK, it’s true that Twilight is from Bella’s perspective, and the fact that i support This Is For Keeps it’s because of Edward, and yeah i might be wrong about that, but i don’t see a song that i could look up to from Bellas perspective, i just don’t.. (especially the Leona Lewis one, i don’t like it at all!)..

  169. Amy

    Lion, Lion, Lion ALLLLL the way!!!!!!!!
    it’s perfect :)

    and despite the fact that i’m probably the 170th comment and not to many people will read this, imma going to post the lyrics anyway because of the fact that they are perfect *sheepish grin*

    “Lion”

    “Mysterious
    That’s what I call You
    I’m curious about You
    I’m scared and not sure that You are safe
    But Your eyes seem to say that You are good

    This is not a dream that I’m living
    This is just a world of Your own
    You took me from all that I knew

    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    Your gentleness melts me
    And now I know that words cannot describe
    The power that I feel when I’m with You

    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    Chorus
    This is not a dream that I’m living
    This is just a world of Your own
    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    is an angel”

    pretty good right? well i think so…. :)

    *ah so close only 169! :)

  171. Eliza

    And I kinda feel bad, ’cause I totally looked at the comment above my first one to reference my point. Sorry YGA fan!

  172. Beth

    Grrr!!!!!!!!!! Why does everyone keep thinking of Edward when this is all Bella?????????? GAH!!!!!!!!!

  173. Beth

    I kinda have to agree part way with Claudia comment 168 because Leona Lewis does not belong up there. Time Is Running Out is the only Bella’s perspective song I found on there because of both the book and the lyrics. I know we are all lazy and I most certainly never do this when someone says, but look at the lyrics. Maybe then you’ll see similarities.

  174. Beth

    I’d would just type out all the lyrics, but then again I am lazy and most people will just skip over them. Maybe, HOPEFULLY, someone else will. (Winks and nudges to other TIRO fans.) :)

  175. SW

    This is for Beth.
    Here are the lyrics.
    Although, I was lazy, too. :)

    I can’t believe we have to wait until the weekend for rouund three. No fair. I’m going off to pout now.

  178. Marla

    I think hero/herione is perfect. He is always saving her.

  179. Eshizz

    uhm, hello, has anyone seen the lyrics for seventeen forever, they totally describe the conflict with bella and edward’s relationship.

    go look at them if you dont believe me.

    vote for metro station-seventeen forever

    :)

  180. Cassandra

    This is for keeps by the spill canvas is so twilight! if you havn’t heard the whole song do that :D

    this is for keeps:
    “The streets are dark, my pulse is flat-lined
    as I’m running to you
    You sit completely unaware of what I’m about to do
    The air is thick with tension much like when we are together
    My fangs are aching as I’m pondering about you and I forever

    As I round your corner
    I am nervous that you won’t be my lover
    I knock three times and hope that my pale complexion won’t blow my cover
    You answer the door with your innocent face
    Would you like to leave this human race, tonight?

  181. iFantasize

    why didnt anyone suggest ‘calling you’ by blue october? i love the songs up here but i think ‘calling you’ deserves to be on this list instead of bleeding love. oh, and duh, david cook!!!:))

  182. Camrin Rose

    um, i know no-one ever reads the comments, but please, PLEASE whoever the person called Camryn Rose is, i am BEGGINMG tell me who the heck you are! i only posted this because my middle name is Rose and WOOT there is another Camrin/Camryn in the world who is FEMALE! and i’m scared now…

  183. Tash

    This was a hard choice and a great way to hear songs i didnt even consider. Ithink the spill canvas ones only conection with twilight is that its about a vampire and that in relation to twilight specifically (as opposed to other vampire books) dosnt go as well as others
    WoW seventeen forever- this one works so well!!!
    Time is running out- I think this is VERY valid despite what some people are saying. The main conflict of twilight (just the first book)especially at the begginng is what edward considers his fixation with Bella (not being able to ignore/give her up) and the danger it puts her in.

    BTW when it said ‘sense of elation’ for ages i could have sworn it was ‘sense ovulation’ which made me laugh – coz he can.
    I think My guardian angel is good- but i cant realy see how it represents twilight more than any of the others.

    Iris does fit- (especially ‘youre the closest to heaven that i’ll ever be”) but i think it goes with other books/movies better

  184. Alexa

    omgsh. :O
    i definitely voted for your guardian angel the first round and its on there. :)
    im so excited.

  185. Alexa

    btw, i definitely have the best song for new moon.
    far away by nickelback. :)

  186. XYZ

    This is for comment 174

    I think I’m drowning
    Asphyxiated
    I wanna break this spell
    You’ve created

    You’re something beautiful
    A contradiction
    I wanna play the game
    I want the friction

    You will be the death of me
    Yeah You will be the death of me
    Bury it
    I won’t let you bury it
    I won’t let you smother it
    I won’t let you murder it

    Our time is running out
    Our time is running out
    You can’t push it underground
    You can’t stop it screaming out

    I wanted freedom
    Bound and restricted
    I tried to give you up
    But I’m addicted

    Now that you know I’m trapped
    Sense of elation
    You’d never dream of
    Breaking this fixation

    You will squeeze the life out of me

    Bury it
    I won’t let you bury it
    I won’t let you smother it
    I won’t let you murder it

    Our time is running out
    Our time is running out
    You can’t push it underground
    You can’t stop it screaming out
    How did it come to this?
    Ooooohh

    Yeah You will suck the life out of me

    Bury it
    I won’t let you bury it
    I won’t let you smother it
    I won’t let you murder it

    Our time is running out
    Our time is running out
    You can’t push it underground
    You can’t stop it screaming out
    How did it come to this?
    Ooooohh

  187. beth

    oh my god!!!!! i voted for the same song all 3x…

    LION!!!!!!!

    like i didn’t know what i was gonna vote for but when i played that it just screamed”vote for me” and i knew i had to the lyrics the melody everything just screamed twilight to me ^_^

  188. Elle

    Oh my goodness it’s so hard to choose ! Iris is such a gorgeous song, that was my first pick just because i know the song. But know that i’ve heard that others it’s incredibly hard to choose… i’ll have to say Your Guardian Angel – The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.

  189. Ashlee

    Ok still haven’t made up my mind… but i feel really wierd voting for LION…

    as well as it seems to fit it was written for Chronicles of Narnia the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe…

    so it’s basically about the characters relationship with Aslan… who is supposed to represent God… so i just can’t bring myself to see it for Twilight…

    i can’t make up my mind on any of the others though… maybe i’ll get back…

  190. Sabrina

    OH YEAH U PICKED MY SONG!!!! Seventeen forever

  191. Chantal

    I think all the songs are great, Muse, Rebecca..etc.
    I really secretly hope Lion wins, because I just love it, and everytime I hear it I think of Bella, but everything on the list is something I’d like to win. :)
    Twilight Rocks!

  192. Tash

    The more i think about the more i think that My guardian angel – although a really good song doesnt fit twilight very well eg. Edwards does not think he is going to heaven/ have tears etc
    the spill canvas is a great vampire song but is not fitting for twilight (just the first book) as the whole subject of changing only ever comes up in the last few chapters

    Oh and if theres ever a vote for the song of eclipse i totally choose ‘Newborn’ by Muse

  193. Molly

    OMEC! all theese songs are perfect! i was going to vote but now i cant! its to hard to choose! ill be watching to see who wins…
    luvs molly

  194. Amy H.

    Why is everyone all obsessed w/ the notion that Your Guadian Angel has to be from Edward’s perspective? I know Edward phiysically saves Bella 3 times in Twilight, but it is Bella who truly “saves” Edward. She gives him reason to live. She spiritually and emotionally saves him. Your Guardian Angel works from both perspectives, (it’s music/art folks, it doesn’t have to be completely literal). But, for me, it is Bella who is Edward’s guardian angel. In this song it is Bella saying I’ll stay w/ you forever. Also, it works best in the verse that has the lines “please don’t walk away”, “please tell me you’ll stay”. Bottom line: they both save each other. Isn’t that why this book and these characters are so amazing?

  195. Amy H.

    I’m ok with any of them except “Bleeding Love” because it is perhaps the most annoying song in the last decade, and “Seventeen Forever” because it sounds like it’s written in the perspective of a pedophile. It creeps me out. The other eight are all wonderful!

  196. allaboutthemusic

    MUSE and FLYLEAF and MUSE AGAIN… There is no contest and you can be sure that Alex will NOT put Bleeding Love on that soundtrack. That is a promise. As for this Lion song…I get what many of you see in the lyrics but unfortunately that girls voice is terrible.

  197. Sarah

    Lion by Rebecca St.James!
    I can’t believe it! Thats one of the songs I entered! Wow!
    VOTE FOR IT! (not that I’m forcing you or anything…)
    And listen to the whole song if you aren’t sure about it.. its truely a beautiful song <3
    Ooooh this is so exciting!

  198. Sarah

    *truly
    Sorry for the typo >.<

  199. Katie ~

    To Eliza #166 : I respect your opinion on the lyrics for YGA, but still, ya gotta admit this fits pretty well >

    Peace and power, love forever
    Who am I to stand before You?
    I am speechless
    But in my weakness
    You are here and all is well

    This shows Edward knowing that because Bella is with him, it is a weakness, and yet at the same time he is glad she is with him.

  200. Katie ~

    Hey Kaleb, how about posting a daily update of the standings of the songs? That would be awesome – all of us out here are dying to know what has changed since the last time you posted!

  201. Sarah

    Wow, okay so update…
    I actually read EVERY SINGLE COMMENT and I’m happy that people actually like the song I suggested in (Lion).
    Yeah, okay some people may not like it, but its okay, I respect your opinion.
    And also… it seems to me like people think of it in Edwards point of view…
    Okay I’m sorry but… no.

    And one more thing I forgot to say earlier….
    Bleeding Love….. NO. Sure, the lyrics sorta kinda fit, but the genre is just… no. *flails*

    and the other songs… to me they seem to fit either a single chapter or one of the other books…
    I don’t know… just my opinion.
    But thank you all who support Lion! ^^

  202. Meli

    I’m torn! Your Guardian Angel is really how I’ve pictured Twilight. I adore Red Jumpsuit and I happened to be listening to them when I was reading Twilight and it just spoke volumes to me.

    MUSE and FLYLEAF are great, but Time is Running Out I don’t feel encompasses the entire book. All Around Me I definitely relate to New Moon way more than to Twilight.

    Iris is wonderful. I hadn’t even thought of that song, but the moment I saw it on the list I was like…Oooooh.

    Hmmm…the deliberation continues….

  203. Stacey

    wow, all of the are pretty good. except i dont understand the hello goodbye on, it doesnt seem like twilight at all. but i LOVE This is for keeps – The Spill Canvas basically because it totally fits. i know someone on here said that edward doesnt want to change her so it doesnt fit. But edward does want to change her, but he feels selfish and evil for wanting to, and there is a part of him that doesnt, but that is what the song captures is that dilemma. plus the chorus is totally from bellas point of view too. :D
    then i also like iris, but its too old and used for another movie, as is lion(the lyrics fit really well, but it is for narnia). so i really also like guardian angel, and time is running out, also all around me. i think they all fit well in a way. it was really hard to choose.

  204. Stacey

    okay, i am going to put all the lyrics for This is For Keeps up here. cause they are awesome

    “This Is For Keeps”

    The streets are dark, my pulse is flat-lined
    as I’m running to you
    You sit completely unaware of what I’m about to do
    The air is thick with tension much like when we are together
    My fangs are aching as I’m pondering about you and I forever

    As I round your corner
    I am nervous that you won’t be my lover
    I knock three times and hope that my pale complexion won’t blow my cover
    You answer the door with your innocent face
    Would you like to leave this human race, tonight?

    Eternity will never be enough for me
    and eternally we’ll live our infallible love

    My brain is pumping an unusual secretion of lust
    Your eyes are softer now
    and your chin, it drips a bloody color of rust
    I am raising up the stakes of this round, I am playing for keeps
    Oh, would you like to leave this human race, tonight?

    Eternity will never be enough for me
    and eternally we’ll live our infallible love

    Follow me into the sea
    We’ll drown together and immortalize you and me
    Leave behind this lonely town
    We’re both better than this, it’s not worth being down

    Eternity will never be enough for me
    and eternally we’ll live our infallible love

    Follow me into the sea
    We’ll drown together and immortalize you and me
    Leave behind this lonely town (eternally)
    We’re both better than this, it’s not worth being down (eternally)

    how perfect is that?

  205. Twilighter Fanpire Stephanie

    I have loved “Your Guardian Angel” since the first time I heard which was sometime last year i think and it is amy all time favorite song!! While I was reading Twilight this was the 1st song that played in my head! I am so glad that they chose it because it fits both in Edward and Bella’s perspective and throughout Twilight Bella is constantly teling Edward to not walk away and that’s what keeps being mentioned in the song (sorry 4 such a long comment :( )

  206. Tiffani Box

    HECK YES the song i suggested got Up there!!!! Kewlio man! cant believe it.this is AWEsome!

    Lion

    i suggested it because it just screams twilight i mean the whole thing

    “Lion”

    “Mysterious
    That’s what I call You
    I’m curious about You
    I’m scared and not sure that You are safe
    But Your eyes seem to say that You are good

    Chorus
    This is not a dream that I’m living
    This is just a world of Your own
    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    Wise eyes, You see the core of me
    Your gentleness melts me
    And now I know that words cannot describe
    The power that I feel when I’m with You

    Chorus
    This is not a dream that I’m living
    This is just a world of Your own
    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is

    Peace and power, love forever
    Who am I to stand before You?
    I am speechless
    But in my weakness
    You are here and all is well

    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    Chorus
    This is not a dream that I’m living
    This is just a world of Your own
    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    is an angel”

    pretty good right? well i think so….

    so just listen to it and vote baby!

  207. Butterscotch

    omg i’m so happy that ‘Lion’ is up there! its the perfect twilight song. just listen to the lyrics! i’d type them out but i’m really lazy so maybe someone else will??*nudgenudge* *winkwink*:]*bats eyelashes hopefully*:]:]

    Also, ‘Hero/Heroine’ is pretty good too. ‘Bleeding Love’ is awsome for New Moon but i don’t really like ‘Time Is Running Out’. and i don’t get why ‘Here In Your Arms’ is on that list. to me it doesn’t seem like a Twilight song.

  208. Butterscotch

    never mind

  209. Reading Twilight: Chapter 23 (The Angel)

    [...] Voting for the song for Twilight will continue until this weekend, when I post my final thoughts on the book and write on the [...]

  210. Isabel H.K.

    I had a really hard time picking the PERFECT song for the book. I listened to all of them fully and read all their lyrics. I finally found a top 3 that would fit in the most ways possible! NOW TO SEE THE RESULTS AT THE END! :)

    (Go “Guardian angel”, “Hero/heroine” and “This is for keeps”)

    I personally think they mirror Edward’s and Bella’s relationship the best. Now to wait and see if I was right.

  211. Isabel H.K.

  212. stephanie

    ugh..this is soo hard i really don’t know what to vote for.
    everybody knows “hero/herine” and i wanted something new for twilight.
    “time is running out” is kind of for midnight song, since it’s from edward’s perspective.
    “lion” is just perfect, every single line is perfect for twilight, BUT it belongs to the chronicles of narnia soundtrack…
    “iris” again everybody know that song; the lyrics are beautiful, but some lines fit for bella some for edward like
    ” and i don’t want the world to see me, cuz i don’t think that they’d understand”..but it’s a beautiful song <3 it

  213. Nora

    I agree with Hannah #117, there are too many mainstream songs on here. It sames as if people just voted their favorite love song on there without much thought. I would have love to seen some DC4C or Dashboard Confessional

  214. Tessa

    Wow. Some of these are pretty…bad. I vote Muse because Stephenie Meyer would approve.

  215. Allie

    Iris, you guys!
    It’s so pretty!!
    It describes the meadow scene to perfection, and that totally what the whole book is about.
    In Edwards words.

    “And I’d give up forever to touch you,
    Cause I know that you feel me somehow.
    You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be,
    And I don’t want to go home right now.”

    “And all I can taste is this moment,
    And all I can breathe is your life,
    And sooner or later it’s over,
    I just don’t want to miss you tonight.”

  216. Cassidy

    Wow, I really think these songs are good choices!!! I voted for Time Is Running Out by Muse, for I love that song and it fits Twilight perfectly ^_^ It was a hard decision for me between that and “All Around Me” but I guess I’m kinda voting favorites :P

    And I also would liek to say that “Seventeen Forever” is kinda contradicting because the lyrics say “You won’t be seventeen forever
    And we can get away with this tonight — You’re wise beyond your years, but I don’t care” so it wouldn’t make sense from either of their points of view. Bella will be, well, hopefully 18 forever, Edward is already 17 forever, and the wise beyond your years part wouldn’t make sense at all.

  217. Cassidy

    Wow, I take that back. I just read the lyrics for “This Is For Keeps” and realized it was basically a vampire song, lol :P But to tell you the truth it sounds way more like the end of New Moon. I think they’re are way more New Moon songs than Twilight ones, but still….

  218. nidhi

    I feel, along with most people, that time is running out is the best. it has exact sayings that were in the book, and is relatable to both bella and edward. all around me was good too, but too generic, along with bleeding love, here in your arms, and hero/ heroine. this is for keeps seems to say that he WANTS to turn her into a vampire, which isn’t the case in twilight. Iris is perfect, but its mostly in edward’s point of view. this other songs just don’t fit that well.

  219. nidhi

    one thing about time is running out that I didnt like, was that it was a little too rockish and upbeat for twilight. on the other hand, seeing as twilight has a happy ending, its good in a way.

  220. XY Z

    Hey Kaleb, you should totally post aanother update on the polls.

  221. Katie Beth

    That was really hard! I narrowed it down to five pretty quickly, but then I agonized over “Your Guardian Angel”, “Time Is Running Out” (I still think this one’s better for New Moon), “Hero/Heroine”, “Iris”, and “Lion”, just because of the lyrics. I finally had to go with musical compatibility and choose “Your Guardian Angel”. :-P

  222. Suzie Q

    Of all the choices here, I am going to have to go with “All Around Me” by Flyleaf. It’s so teen angst. And it’s from a girl’s perspective, like Bella. And, you know, Bella gets obsessive enough to really feel Edward all around her. And there is that line about “thickening the air I’m breathing” Yeah, that is so Edward making her dizzy.

    But, if you really wanna stay in the spirit of the series (with the classical music Edward plays…) I’ve been reading New Moon whilst listening to the theme song from Requiem For a Dream. You wanna talk about angstyness…. And it’s got a good climactic build up too.

  223. Brittany

    FLYLEAF… hello! We dont want any of those sappy teeny bop songs, but something a little darker and deep;)

  224. Annalise

    OK… so none of the songs that I submitted were picked, and I still think “Bring Me to Life” by Evanesence is the absolutely perfect choice for Twilight for both Edward and Bella, they both wake each other up, and bring each other out of a type of darkness in which they were both living… but I’m older, and therefor my tastes are older, and much more refined… Iris is definately the best choice in this list, with Muse close behind… and if anyone actually read the lyrics to “Bleeding Love,” it totally doesn’t fit. Great job, and hopefully the masses will do the vote justice (or at least the musical coordinator for the movie will have some sense;).)

  225. Nancy

    “Iris” fits the book perfectly!
    No questions asked

  226. Kaleb Nation

    Hey people! Some updates on the songs:
    Lion by RSJ, Time Is Running Out by Muse and Your Guardian Angel by RJA are the three in the lead. They’re literally all within 40 votes of each other.

    The others are not far behind either. Iris is up with Hero/Heroine by Boys Like Girls.

    For all the people talking about Bleeding Love, I don’t know how it got on there either. But it is still getting a huge amount of votes, so obviously a lot of fans are still picking it.

  227. laura

    muse for sure! i mean stephenies favorite band is muse and she even quotes time is running out in twilight!! edward says you will be the death of me and that is direct from this song. i am a die hard fan of both muse and meyer so this just seems right :]

  228. Katie ~

    To Kaleb – did you choose the songs for the top 10 by the amount of times they were submitted in Round 1, or did you personally pick the top 10 songs you think fit Twilight? I’m guessing it’s not the latter – that would have been quite a burden for you!

  229. Kaleb Nation

    @228: they were picked by the most submitted for each song. Yeah…I had to go through them all :D

  230. SW

    Just read through the comments again. My oh my, it’s getting so close!!! Ah, all of them seem to be: blah, blah, blah LION! Then blah, blah, blah YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL. Then blah, blah, blah TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!!!!!! I voted for TIRO. I’m not sure people are looking into the song and book enough, of it would have more votes. Come on people, let’s not let Twilight down by voting for a ‘not so good for Twilight’ song. Except for the song I voted for, I really did not like any of the song choices at all.

  231. SW

    To all of the people who voted for Time Is Running Out, I love you. I will love the ones who haven’t yet had the chance to vote for it, too. Although, I do have a friend who voted for Hero/Heroine, Hayli in comment 36. I love her most of all. ;)

  232. SW

    Just out of curiostity, Kaleb, I have a question for you, although, I understand if you can’t answer it. Which song do YOU want to win? Did you vote for it?

  233. bookgirlluvstwilight

    Go Your Guardian Angel! I’ve never heard the song before but it sounds perfect! Iris is my 2nd choice. :)

    Stevie was here

  234. Lisa Mason Cullen

    YOUR Guardian Angel (The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus)
    Lion (Rebecca St.James)
    Time is running out (Muse)
    and I know we do not get 4 but I think a song made about a Vampire in love with and wanting to change a human girl he is very much in love with well enough said I am talking about, This is For Keeps by The Spill Canvas

  235. liz

    i really hope the spill canvas wins :) when you read the lyrics it’s truly about vampire love hahha

  236. KatRin

    holla @ seventeen forever and lion! all the songs fit nicely at various points in the book though, so good job everyone!

    kaleb: if you don’t mind sharing, what song do YOU think sums up Twilight the best? either from the top 10 list or your own choice? :]]

  237. SW

    Ok, I guess you can’t…:)

  238. Katie ~

    To 237 SW — Maybe if we’re lucky, AFTER the voting is done next weekend Kaleb will grace us with his opinion of which song he thought was best. We shall see… :)

  239. Katie ~

    If he did it now, people who were undecided might choose that song, because Kaleb likes it.

  240. Paige

    Georgia, comment 8:
    Shut the f*** up. Seriously.

  241. EDWARD

    I agree with paige who ever left comment #8 dont put in your two cents if your gonna talk negative about songs that are up for vote especialy muse there far from emo and you obviously are ignorant.

    I have voted for ‘LION’ numerous times! Keep on voting for ‘Lion’, people!!
    It perfectly fits Twilight from Bella’s perspective, and especially the mood of the song!!!
    ‘Bleeding Love’ should have been more for New Moon. To me, it sounds too depressing.
    ‘Here in Your Arms’ sounds too Tech-no for me. Kinda irritating.
    I’ve heard the rest of the songs, and they’re really good to.
    I’m not so sure about Flyleaf though… VOTE LION!!!!

  243. Amy

    Come on Lion!!!

    *crosses fingers*

    =D

  244. Amy

    And because I can and for all the people who haven’t read the lyrics yet… here ya go :
    VOTE FOR LION!!!
    (please?) :)

    “Lion”

    “Mysterious
    That’s what I call You
    I’m curious about You
    I’m scared and not sure that You are safe
    But Your eyes seem to say that You are good

    Chorus
    This is not a dream that I’m living
    This is just a world of Your own
    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    Wise eyes, You see the core of me
    Your gentleness melts me
    And now I know that words cannot describe
    The power that I feel when I’m with You

    Chorus
    This is not a dream that I’m living
    This is just a world of Your own
    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is

    Peace and power, love forever
    Who am I to stand before You?
    I am speechless
    But in my weakness
    You are here and all is well

    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    Chorus
    This is not a dream that I’m living
    This is just a world of Your own
    You took me from all that I knew
    Shown me how it feels to hope
    With You with me, facing tomorrow together
    I can learn to fly
    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel)

    is an angel”

  245. guinevere

    muse, definitely.

  246. Jocelyn

    Muse definitely fits but overall is too dark for the book. Twilight is dark, sure, but has overtones of hope that are much better reflected in Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls. This song is classic, and gorgeous, and perfect.

  247. Butterscotch

    come on ppl!! vote for lion!! the lyrics are in these comments at least 3 times!! read them!! there perfect for twilight!!

    VOTE FOR LION!!!!!!!

  248. Krissie

    uh kaleb…there’s seems to be a prob with me previewing the songs…but i did place a vote already but would love to listen to the other songs nonetheless…i know you have a lot of emails and mine might catch a little attention…just giving you a heads up…this issue might be a regional thing…but thanks thanks!! the songs are absolutely fantastic!

  249. Bryn

    Ah, Katie 238, I hope you’re right! I don’t particularly see Muse’s song as dark, it just sounds dark. But, realy, I think he’s trying to portray that he doesn’t want to lose whatever he has. (If that makes sense.) :)

  250. Bryn

    In the last several comments, it’s seemed that people are going for Lion. No! Please, always Time Is Running Out!!!

  251. SW

    Some of the lyrics in Lion apply to Twilight, but I’m just not getting the whole feel for the song. Don’t know why.

  252. Ally Reindl

    Wow. The song I suggested didn’t make it in the top ten, but I’m not disappointed because these songs are just so amazingly perfect for Twilight. I simply could not decide between Iris and Lion, so I chose both. I think that, maybe both should be chosen because when I heard those songs, it was like Iris described how Edward probably thought or felt and Lion described how Bella felt.
    And, okay, Lion was written for the Chronicles of Narnia movie, but I actually think it describes Twilight better. Plus, it’s a beautiful song; just listen to the lyrics!

  253. Leah

    Guys, i know it’s been said, but Iris doesn’t fit in with twilight whatsoever, i think you’re all getting confused with the metaphors. It’s about a break up, or the loss of someone, and basically telling them how much they need them, but that they are letting them go. I guess you could twist the lyrics around and if you take them literally they’ll work for twilight, but it’s really not what the song is about. I know it’s upsetting, ’cause it’s a really good song, but maybe we should chose a song where the lyrics fit a little better? Lion on Time is Running Out are good choices *wink wink nudge nudge*

  254. March

    i voted for your guardian angel because i thought it so fit twilight and how edward saves her and all.
    I also like the song.

  255. KraZEe4TwiLIght

    Dang it! I so was going to suggest Here(In Your Arms)! But my computer wouldn’t work so I could suggest it in the beginning. I decided when I first read Twilight that that WAS THE SONG!

  256. Annette

    Lion all the way! It basically IS Twilight.

    some lines stood out to me:

    But Your eyes seem to say that You are good (gold eyes….)

    Feels like I’m living in a lion’s mouth, but the lion is (an angel) (**lion and the lamb….)

    Your gentleness melts me (Bella always stops breathing or her heart goes crazy)

    Peace and power, love forever
    Who am I to stand before You?
    I am speechless
    But in my weakness
    You are here and all is well (sums up how she feels for him…)

    That is why Lion makes a great song for them

  257. S.

    Lion seems as if it’s talking more about God or a higher being than a about a lover.

  258. S.

    Edward is an immortal, not so much a god, though sometimes Bella does view him as an angel.

  259. whist

    So the Lion is God? That makes sense.

  260. whist

    But we’re looking for Bella and Edward here!

  261. casscullen

    you should pick river flows by yirma or lion

  262. casscullen

    i really want muse or lion mostly lion is about the book totally plz plz pick that song

  263. Lori

    TIME IS RUNNING OUT!! AHH I NOMINATED THAT SONG IT IS PERFECT!!!

  264. gina

    ahhhhhhhhhh for gods sake!!!!! peoples vote for time is runing out and lion!!!! they are like completly perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  265. Mrs.EdwardCullen

    LION LION LION!!!!!!

    I <3 rebecca st. james and this song just *fits* the book so well!

    I’m scared and not sure that You are safe
    But Your eyes seem to say that You are good

    Those lyrics remind me so much of when Edward is telling Bella that he’s dangerous and a bad guy, but she says “no, I don’t believe that you’re bad.”

  266. Angela

    I’m so happy that “Your Guardian Angel” made it in the top ten!! I voted for it the first round. I really hope it wins because it is the perfect song for Twilight. :D

  267. Missy

    Literally, time is running out to vote for the right song. Which is Time Is Running Out!!!

  268. Missy

    S. in comments 257 and 258 makes a good point, I think.

  269. Monica

    Actually I really like Your Guardian Angel. At least I knew all the songs in ths list :D even if I’d only submitted one of them.

  270. Brigitte

    Isn’t Lion for the Chronicles of Narnia representing Aslan? That makes way more sense for that movie than Twilight. That song was written for the movie, not ‘practically’ written for Twilight! I don’t think you should take a made for a movie song with a totally different theme and then apply it to something totally opposite like Twilight.

  271. Brigitte

    On the other hand, I have ALWAYS been a Muse fan. Can you guess where I’m going with this? :) TIRO!

  272. Katie ~

    Hey Kaleb, how bout an update?

  273. E.

    Lets see some Time Is Running Out lovin’!!!

  274. E.

    Update yes!!!

  275. Stephanie

    hey, it’s me again. comments #54 and 55.
    I’m back to say that it’s still very annoying how people are all like ‘i love these top 10 overplayed crappy songs’. like i’ve said before, i aprove of Lion and the song by the spill canvas. Those are the only good ones in my oppinion. I mean, seriously people, do we want twilight to have a song that remembers it by being an overplayed song that is so obviously picked only for the name *cough* bleeding love *cough* *cough*.
    I like how some people agree with me about this stupid top 10 crud, at least i have some hope that we fanpires have some taste.
    another thing. message to all twilight fans. In case you didn’t already know this…
    TWILIGHT IS FROM ISABELLA MARIE SWAN’S PERSPECTIVE YOU IDIOTS! STOP RECOMENDING SONGS THAT ARE FROM EDWARDS! SAVE THOSE FOR MIDNIGHT SUN! GOD!
    do we not have brains or something?!
    anway, i can’t wait to see what wins, but if one of the stupid overplayed crappy songs win, i’m going to gag myself with a barbie leg :P
    I mean, some of these songs are like making the twilight theme song BARBIE GIRL! Bleh!

  276. E.

    I hope the message above me does not fall on deaf ears because I know what she’s feeling: Frustration. I too, have mentioned that Twilight is from Bella’s perspective. Has anyone listened? Not really, no. Sorry, excuse my snappishness, I’m just a little worn out over the’it’s the perfect song for Edward!’ stuff.

  277. E. aka Sarah

    Of course, when I mentioned it, I was under a different name. I have also left comments under ‘Sarah.’

  278. Sarah

    Kaleb!
    How are the polls doing?
    (winks and nudges to reveal which songs are in the lead.)

  279. gina

    i just want to say, i fully disagree with stephanie in comment 275…the top 10 songs arent “barbie-ish” yes some of them are gay, but there are still good ones, a mojrity of them are good, and fyi- we all have brains.

    and kaleb nation, do this for ur fans….POST ANOTHER UPDATE OF THE VOTES…please..? :D

  280. nat

    all three of my songs mad it through. genius!

  281. Liz

    I actually voted for Seventeen Forever (and nominated it) because the first time I heard it I thought of Edward and Bella, and Bella’s argument with Edward at the end of the book, where she tells him flat out “I won’t be seventeen forever” (prolly a misquote. I’m at work, so I can’t pull the book out and reference when I’m at my desk.). This song just was Twilight, and Edward and Bella, to me. Iris, as much as I love it, is about suicide, and would be much more Edward in New Moon if any (yes, it is seriously about suicide. Goo Goo Dolls talked about it in a concert). Bleeding Love is soooo overplayed that I would be very happy to never, ever hear it again (it was a gorgeous song in the beginning though). All Around Me is a song about God and the Holy Spirit. So I guess if I had to choose another song it would be Muse. Because Twilight was influenced by Muse and Stephenie loves Muse and I saw them live, they are amazing, way way way before Black Holes came out and people actually knew them (back when I was in college. Oh God, I’m dating myself again). Anyways, that’s just my logic for why I nominated and voted for Metro Station’s Seventeen Forever.

  282. Katie ~

    I agree with #270. I think Lion is a good song, and could even represent Twilight, but the problem is that it already represents another book/movie. I know, it can fit for Twilight too, but it was made for Aslan. I just don’t think it would be original enough to be the song for Twilight.

  283. Feaad

    Wow, they’re all so good! A lot of them are creepily well chosen for the book or series. This is For Keeps by Spill Canvas is even very definitely about a vampire, but I don’t think it captures what makes Twilight special. I love the song though… I don’t know what to pick!

  284. Meaghan

    Bleeding Love is SOOOOO New Moon. When the song first came out I was like WOW that’s like the theme song for New Moon. But for Twilight? Really? I don’t think so. At first I was really excited to see Iris, but after thinking about it and listening to it, I think that would fit New Moon from Edwards POV. Out of that list, I thought Lion would be the best fit even though it’s for another movie. And yes, I realize “lion” is God, but Edward has a god complex anyways! :)

  285. maria carolina

    omgggg i can’t believe my song made it to the 2nd round! Lion by rebecca st james! i just read a comment saying that lion is amde for narnia.. well yeah it’s a bit odd… but iris was made for city of angels.. anywho.. not trying to be rude or anything i completely understand what youre saying.. :)

  286. maria carolina

    oh and lion is based in Aslan from the chronicles of narnia.. i know that the love to aslan is completely different from the one btwn bella and edwrard but once you lsiten to the lyrics and put narnia aside you can tell that the lyrics are simply perfect!

  287. Sarah

    I think the lyrics in Lion make more sense for what they were written for then Twilight. And I can’t shake off the fact that it was for Chronicles of Narnia anyways.

  288. Sarah

    Well I love This Is For Keeps but I think that it more describes either Eclipse or Breaking Dawn because it is Edward thinking of changing Bella.

    But Lion fits Bella’s POV and Twilight PERFECTLY

  289. gina

    its true that lion was written for narnia and all, but it doesnt mean that it still cant represent twilight…

  290. YessIca

    Bleeding Love??? Are you serious!?! I get the irony in the lyrics but can you honestly say that song encompasses the feel of the book?? I was never a fan of that Flyleaf song but I have to admit the sound and feel of it are perfect for this dark love story!

  291. HB

    Man, all the songs r so good! so hard to decide, but in my opinion, i have to agree with sarah, lion is pretty much perfect!

  292. Katelyn

    Lion is the PERFECT song!!! I can totally see that song playing on the credits. Time is Running Out does describe Twilight well but I honestly can’t see it playing durring credits!

  293. Ingrid

    I voted for Your Guardian Angel by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus!
    I like most of the songs listed- but I really hope that Bleeding love or Here (In Your Arms) does NOT win- I would repeatedly smash my head into the keyboard if either of those two won. (way too ‘mainstream-pop’ for my tastes)

  294. KatRin

    everyone: woww this is getting a little hostile, don’t you think? remember that the song you’re bashing and saying is complete crap is one that might mean a lot to the many people who nominated it, which is why its on the top 10 list in the first place, mk?

    of course its ok to express your opinions about music [or whatever you want], but there are civilized ways to do it. for example, i’ve never cared for Muse but that doesn’t mean they “suck”, they just aren’t my style. and just because they aren’t my favorite doesn’t automatically disqualify them; their song is a great fit for twilight [although i thought others fit better].

    so please, lets not go calling everyone idiots just because you want “your” song to win and they chose something else.

    ew, that was a rant, i’m sorry! :/

  295. whist

    Thank you KatRin! Now lets all take some much needed deep breaths…

  296. whist

    But still, NO LION!!!! Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!
    TIRO,TIRO,TIRO,TIRO,TIRO,TIRO…..

  297. Sarah Elizabeth

    KALEB!!!! Update??? Please!

  298. Leah

    Yeah Kaleb…. please! We know you’re out there! Appease us and give us an update!

  299. Amy

    Update….please?

    :D

  300. Leah

    wow… there have been 300 comments so far on this posting. I bet this is a record for Twilightguy.com!

  301. Sarah Elizabeth

    Please Kaleb! We’re all dying here! Save us! How are the polls doing??? UPDATE!!!!!!! Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!

  302. Kayla

    It was a tough choice, but in the end my all time favorite for the book was “Lion” by Rebecca St. James. The lyrics were perfect for Bella, and the book is in Bella’s POV, afterall. I loved “Hero/Heroine” by Boys Like Girls for Edward, too, but since Twilight is told by Bella I think the song should be from Bella’s point, too. Plus, the lion… I mean, come on, how much more perfect does it get? Well, I hope it wins, and I’ll check back to see the winner!

  303. Alex

    Iris all the way! its the most beautiful song on that list, and fits twilight perfectly . i actually listened to that song over and over again when i was first reading the saga!
    IRIS!

  304. Sarah Elizabeth

    Are you not going to be doing updates anymore, then? How sad. If you are though, an update would be nice right about now. Thank you!

  305. Ms. Paranoia

    Sheesh that’s a lot of good songs to choose from, if only we could choose them all @.@

    Anyways, I’m excited to know what song will win =D

  306. Kayla

    Kaleb, an update would be AMAZING right about now :) My mom and I, both dedicated Twilighters, listened to all of the songs today and picked our favorite out as “Lion”, but we want to know if it is still in the lead!!! PLEASE update soon :) Thanks!

  307. Bryn

    A lot of people want Lion to win. NO!!!!!! I really didn’t like that song too much. I have to say I do not want it to win. Sorry to everyone who does like it, though. I just don’t think it captures ALL of Twilight that’s all.

  308. Mandy

    Holy crow! I’m so happy the song I chose got in! OMG OMG OMG! Idk y tho, but EEEEEEEEP! Hero/Heroine, people!

  309. Leah

    UPDATE!!!! ahhh pleassse Kaleb????

  310. Sarah

    I’m sorry we keep bugging you Kaleb, but really, we’d stop if you WOULD JUST UPDATE ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  311. Katelyn

    LION ALL THE WAY!!!
    It describes the WHOLE book!!
    Muse is okay but I can’t honestly see it being played durring the credits. Lion I can however!
    So come on everyone and chose Lion!!!

  312. Sarah

    I thought Lion was played for the Chronicles of Narnia. For Twilight? Eww. During the credits? No, not so much. And it definitely doesn’t describe the whole book.

  313. Sarah

    And I don’t think they’d play a song in the end credits that was made for another movie, either.

  314. Lolaine

    Lion just does not seem like a Twilight song.

  315. Lauren

    how can you say Lion doesn’t seem like a Twilight song??

    LION is the PERFECT Twilight song! to me, it completely describes it from Bella’s perspective. the whole entire thing. it’s like it was written just for Twilight. it’s amazing

  316. Lolaine

    But I thought it was written for the Chronicles of Narnia. I mean, that’s what everyone keeps saying.

  317. Lolaine

    Yeah, so I went to youtube to listen to Lion and I have to admit it is a pretty good song, but I was distracted by the different Chronicles of Narnia clips flashing by. And it doesn’t really change my vote. But she has a nice voice. I just thought it was borderline (and please, please don’t get offended here, this is just my humble opinion) corny. That’s all. Still a nice song though if you’re into that kind of thing which I admit, I’m not. Sorry! But still, I liked her voice.

  318. ila

    All of us voters are getting pretty irritated here.

    KALEB.

    UPDATE.

    PLEASE.

  319. gina

    i reckon that just because lion was a Narnia song doesnt mean that it cant be the twilight song…lion fits twiilght perfectly- in my opinion – and i dont realli think it matters where it came from…an in a very very slight way – note: very – aslan is a bit like edward- the saviour, an angel, kind-hearted and unselfish….

    KALEB PRETTY PLEASE WITH A HUGE CHERRY ON THE TOP PLEASE GIVE US AN UPDATE!!! MANY OF US R DYING HERE!!! PLEASE!!!:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

  320. T.

    KALEB NATION- PLEASE GIVE US AN UPDATE!!! WE ARE ALL BEGGING AND WANTING!!! DO it FOR THE FANS!!!

  321. ila

    I refuse to go to bed until I see an update!!!!!!!!!!!

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…………………………..

    never mind then

  322. ila

    I died because I never got an update. I only blame one person.
    (Points to boy holding Twilight with brown hair.)
    :)

  323. Britt

    I think that Bleeding Love *shudder* would be better for New Moon, ’cause as Edward said, “I cut you open and left you bleeding.” Or something like that.
    Although, i hate the song with as much passion i can muster. Really. It’s terrible.

    But, i’m not here to complain about that, i’m here to say that i voted for Time Is Running Out, ’cause the lyrics really suit what the book is about.

    “Time Is Running Out”

    I think I’m drowning
    Asphyxiated
    I wanna break this spell
    That you’ve created

    You’re something beautiful
    A contradiction
    I wanna play the game
    I want the friction

    You will be the death of me
    You will be the death of me

    Bury it
    I won’t let you bury it
    I won’t let you smother it
    I won’t let you murder it

    Our time is running out
    Our time is running out
    You can’t push it underground
    You can’t stop it screaming out

    I wanted freedom
    Bound and restricted
    I tried to give you up
    But I’m addicted

    Now that you know I’m trapped sense of elation
    You’d never dream of
    Breaking this fixation

    You will squeeze the life out of me

    Bury it
    I won’t let you bury it
    I won’t let you smother it
    I won’t let you murder it

    Our time is running out
    Our time is running out
    You can’t push it underground
    You can’t stop it screaming out
    How did it come to this?
    Oh

    You will suck the life out of me

    Bury it
    I won’t let you bury it
    I won’t let you smother it
    I won’t let you murder it

    Our time is running out
    Our time is running out
    You can’t push it underground
    You can’t stop it screaming out
    How did it come to this?

    *End*

    ‘Cause when you think about the book overall, Bella (in the beginning) is curious in this interesting and strange… um, stranger. Don’t the lyrics relate to that??

    “You will suck the life out of me”

    “You’re something beautiful”

    “You will be the death of me”

    (From Edward and Bella’s view)

    “I tried to give you up, but i’m addicted.”

    And i’m not sure, but i think that some people (just guessing) may have voted for that song just because they liked it.

    That was part of my reason, too. :D

    There. I think that was enough to convince you guys!

  324. Kayla

    Hey guys, just so you know, “Lion” wasn’t actually written for Narnia. I mean, she may have wrote it with Aslan as God in mind, but I own both soundtracks from both Narnia movies and it isn’t on either of them. So yeah, it wasn’t for that. There are lots of clips on Youtube with it being played to clips for Twilight, too, so I think anything having to do with Narnia was all relative, like we are comparing a song to Twilight, they compared one to Narnia. So there, we can all stop our squirming about it being written for Narnia. Not that it would matter, it’s perfect from Bella’s perspective anyways… :P Kaleb, update would be phenomenal right about now! Seriously, a standing ovation would be in order if and when an update comes!

  325. Annette

    I think Lion is more for Twilight (Bella’s POV)

    and

    Your Guardian Angel is more for Midnight Sun (Edward’s POV)

    Lion describes Twilight as the whole thing. I mean, the lion and the lamb. Hes her angel…

    Fits perfectly

  326. Annette

    Sorry, forgot to put this in my last post.

    Here is a wonderful Edward/Bella video set to Lion

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=hky4ZnuAwRY

    Its what made me love the song so much. :D

  327. Leah

    well, guys, looks like we’re just going to have to wait until the final results are posted tomorrow…

  328. Kaleb Nation

    Hey people! Sorry, I can’t update. See, the results will be in tomorrow. In fact, they should be up around 1 AM Central US time. So there isn’t much of a point of totaling them when the real results will be there tonight! :)

    –Kaleb

  329. Charly

    well, for those of you that didnt vote because it was in ‘edward’s point of view”
    NEWS FLASH!!!
    IT’S A MOVIE! it’s going to be in the CAMERA’S point of view.
    not a characer’s
    so it doesnt make a difference because its a movie.
    sorry to burst your bubble

  330. Kayla

    Thanks for the update of sorts, Kaleb. Man, I have to stay up until 2 a.m. my time now :( Glad I’m not doing anything important tomorrow :P Thanks!

  331. Leah

    I hope he posts the winner AND how the rest of the songs did, too. I want to see how well my songs matched up, even if they don’t win!

  332. Sarah

    To comment 329: the movie is about Bella, not Edward. Sure, Edward is a major character, he is one of the main characters, but just as in Twilight, we will be viewing everything the way Bella sees it. The book is about her experiences, not Edward’s. He is a part of those experiences. A large part actually. But its not about him. This is all Bella, the camera will go where she goes. Edward will just be there most of the time.

    And also, I liked the reasoning in comment 323. I chose that song, too!

  333. Annette

    To comment number 329, we are voting for the song that goes with the BOOK Twilight, not the movie.

  334. Sarah

    Yes, thank you girl above me, this is the book, not the movie.

  335. gina

    yup- im agreeing with with comments 333 and 334- THIS IS FOR TWILIGHT THE BOOK, NOT THE MOVIE~!!!

  336. Rachel

    I think it should be fall for you by secondhand serenade

  337. shiori

    OMG! i can’t believe there’s Muse in here… i’m totally addicted to this band and i also can’t believe that my most fave song in muse is here!!!! yay!

    all hail MUSE!
