Pick the Song for New Moon

October 7th, 2008 at 12:05 am by Kaleb Nation

As I near the final few chapters, the time has come to pick the song for New Moon!

As we did for Twilight, everyone will be picking the song that BEST FITS WITH THE ENTIRE NOVEL as a whole. Songs have been an enormously important part of each post, so it only follows that for the Epilogue, the ending of New Moon, we should have a special one that truly closes the story — as picked by Twilighters from around the world!

The voting will take place in two parts: the first will be suggesting songs, for one week, and then the second will be voting from the top ten most suggested. You can nominate up to three songs per person, and can also choose songs that were already used for chapter posts — use the form below to start sending them in!

I will be posting the most voted for song when I write on the Epilogue, with my final thoughts on the book. Have fun voting!

Oh, and if you need a smile, check out the new video from Dragoat, proclaiming his love for NoMoreMarbles:

If you don’t know who Dragoat is, you should watch our BlogTV shows :D

You can use the comment box below to talk about your picks and why you chose your songs:

    first comment?!! this is great i’m going to have to think of a good one! love the video too…

  2. sally

    wow i love figuring out which songs to choose. it’s so hard!

  3. Stacey

    Wow the third to comment! Excitment. I picked Blackout sun by soundgarden. Manly because i picture edward in italy throughout the song.

  4. Chelsea

    I chose The Scientist by Coldplay. I think the tone of the song really suits New Moon and also the lyrics really match it as well :D

  5. Tracy

    I chose Earthquake by The Used,
    I think it really captures the whole book from Edwards point of view at least. From how Bella reacted to hm leaving, to him trying to fix it when he came back, asking if she still loved him.

    heres the lyrics…

    She had an earthquake on her mind
    I almost heard her cry out as I left her far behind
    and knew the world was crashing down around her

    I sink to the ocean floor because I know that we are more but
    I’ve made this mess
    I built this fire, Are you still mine?
    Cause baby I’m not alright when you go, I’m not fine.
    please be all mine. I never want you to go because I am all yours, so please be all mine.

    She had an earthquake on her mind apparently the kind that would
    bury us alive
    by putting all this weight on us forever
    I lie here on the ocean floor broken castle by the shore and
    I made this mess
    I built this fire, Are you still mine?
    Cause baby i’m not alright when you go, I’m not fine.
    please be all mine. I never want you to go because i am all yours, so please be all mine

    Let me save us
    I’ve slaughtered us, I’ve murdered our love
    I can taste it, This blood in my mouth
    This knife in my lungs
    Have I murdered our love?
    Have I mudered our love?

    Cause baby I’m not alright when you go
    I’m not fine, yeah please be all mine,
    I never want you to go because I am all yours, so please be all mine.

    Cause baby I’m not alright when you. baby I’m not alright when you go.(when you go)
    please be all mine. I never want you go because I am all yours so please be all mine.
    Please be all mine.

  6. Marina

    i submitted three because i couldnt decide. i picked pressure by paramore, all around me by flyleaf, and vulnerable by secondhand serenade. cant really explain why, i just think of new moon whenever i hear these songs. does anyone agree with my picks?

  7. Giada8424

    I choose one for each of the three characters(Bella – Frozen by Within Temptation, Edward – Sing For Absolution” by Muse; Jacob – Maybe I’s Just Me by Butch Walker); it was really hard to decide. I can’t wait to see wich other songs had been submitted!

  8. Anna

    jeez its so hard to chose songs! but eventually I chose Patience by Take That. Basically like no ones heard that song before, but if you listen to it, it fits so well to New Moon…can’t wait till u read eclipse!

  9. Bethany

    I picked That’s What You Get by Paramore. It seemed kind of like how Bella’s feeling all throughout the book. Edward leaves; she’s heart broken. She falls for Jacob some. And then Edward comes back, therefore making her confusion greater. So yeah, “that’s what you get when you let your heart win.” Lyrics seem compatable =]

  10. Owen

    i have chose “Wild Horses” by The Sundays (orginally by the rolling stones) It fits perfect for new moon.

  11. Sarah

    Comatose by Skillet will aways be my New Moon song. It fits perfectly with what Edward is going through all during the book. Awesome song, check it out if you’ve never heard of it.

  12. Katie

    Everything You Want by Vertical Horizon. I think it explains Bella’s relationship with Jacob and with the absent Edward in New Moon perfectly.

  13. JessieLynn

    I picked “The Older I Get” by Skillet. It pretty much summed up the book for me, if not the entire series. Check it out if you don’t know what it is.

    Also, it was only a matter of time before Dragoat would seranade Bailey. Great video! :)

  14. Kay Tee

    I have to agree with Sarah up there, Comatose by Skillet is my pick.

  15. Victoria

    Wow, I thought that I was going to be unoriginal, but guess not…

    I picked Near to You by A Fine Frenzy, a song that has also been picked as a chapter song. Think it represents Bella’s feelings for Jake in New Moon perfectly.

  16. Katy

    I picked Bring Me to Life by Evanescence. There are two songs by Flyleaf that I think fit, I’m Sorry (ends with the singer saying, “I’m done healing.”) and Sorrow (ends with the scream, “Joy will come!”)

  17. Tanit

    This is the perfect song, I really mean it: Goodbye my lover

    http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/jamesblunt/goodbyemylover.html

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVyggTKDcOE

  18. Verali

    Well, I picked one from the actual playlist that Stephenie has, and it’s one of my favorites. ‘Sound of Pulling Heaven Down’ by Blue October. I thought that it really matched up, and that it got down to the heart of things. But that’s just me.

  19. Madi

    i went for hate me by blue october. i thought that it really went with edwards side of the story… im suprized more people havent mentioned it.

  20. Verali

    ps
    i think that dragoat is really cute! :)

  21. Sarah

    I nominated two songs by Yellowcard, Only One and Light Up the Sky, because a) I love them and b) (and slightly more relevantly) the lyrics fit perfectly.
    Only One I think fits perfectly Edward’s feelings for Bella and how he feels that she is so fragile, he should leave so she can find someone better for her but how she truly is his only love.
    Light Up the Sky is Jacob asking Bella to give him a chance and it is doubly appropriate because he wants to Light Up the Sky for her, and she always calls him her sun. It also talks about how far she has come with a broken heart, which is her after Edward left, and even has a line “they’ll just watch you die” which is very appropriate given that he views Bella changing as her dying.

  22. Lisa from Germany

    I choose “Unwell” by Matchbox Twenty and “Hate Me” by Blue October. Because the first is perfect for for Bella and the second allways makes me almost cry when Justin sings: “And then she wispered How can you do this to me” I swear it ALLWAYS brings tears to my eyes

  23. Rochelle

    I chose Katy Perry’s Thinking of You, which was the ‘Paris’ chapter song, because it touches on the role of all three characters. I also voted for Erin McCarley’s Pitter Pat. This isn’t a rough or edgy song, as many of our beloved Twilight inspired songs are but it is very bittersweet, which seems to be a major theme in NM. It is also a little slow and numbing, and that is how I see Bella in NM … no matter how risky she gets, emotionally low, irrational, or heart broken over Edward leaving and Jacob changing she isn’t ever completely “there.” You can hear the full song on her Myspace.

  24. Vickie

    I sent in “Whatever It Takes” by Lifehouse. Here’s a bit of the lyrics:

    A strangled smile fell from your face
    It kills me that I hurt you this way
    The worst part is that I didn’t even know
    Now there’s a million reasons for you to go
    But if you can find a reason to stay

    I’ll do whatever it takes
    To turn this around
    I know what’s at stake
    I know that I’ve let you down
    And if you give me a chance
    And give me a break
    I’ll keep us together, I know you deserve much better

    My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE is “Storm” by Lifehouse. It really captures Bella’s perspective throughout the book. It embodies a terrific correlation to being in or under water and feeling like you can’t make it anymore. If you happen to search for the song on Youtube, find the acoustic version! It is sung in such a heartbreaking and heartfelt way!! This is my FAVORITE for New Moon. Very, very, very good!

    How long have I been in this storm?
    So overwhelmed by the ocean’s shapeless form
    Water’s getting harder to tread
    With these waves crashing over my head

    If I could just see you
    Everything would be all right
    If I’d see you
    This darkness would turn to light

  25. mara-kate

    i sent in Better Than Me (hinder) go listen to it! it is THE edward song of New Moon! i also did Paramore (couldnt decide between Pressure or Thts Wat you Get) and Save You (Simple Plan…go canada!) this is fun :) love this part!

  26. Annie

    My pick is “Star-Crossed” by Scary kids Scaring Kids. It really fits the story well….

    “Star crossed lovers
    They say we’re not meant to be
    ‘Cause the stars in the sky, and the fashion that they are aligned.
    I say if the futures been drawn out there’s no point in living.
    I wont give up my love so that fate can have its way.” This one defiantly fits Bella… She doesn’t want to Give up Edward, and she almost dose give up on living when she loses him….

    “If the stars say that you couldn’t love me,
    Are you telling me that you would listen?
    If the words make their way from your mouth,
    Don’t ask my permission,
    All is forgiven.”
    This is essentially what edward keeps asking bella to do, even if it isn’t what he wants.

  27. Ash IS DA BOMB

    I don’t know I’m suggesting several songs for New Moon this one a tuff one since in New Moon there are so many emotions in it

    My Choices

    All Around Me By: FlyLeaf
    Memories By: Evanescence
    I Need You By: Relient K (Yes I know)
    Boulevard of Broken Dreams by: Green Day

    (YES I just had to put green day in there cuz it describes Bella’s zombie phase)

    ~*Lots of Love*~
    Ashley

  28. HeidiMarie

    I picked 3 songs:

    Far Away- Nickelback
    This is How I Disappear- My Chemical Romance
    No Air- Jordin Sparks ft. Chris Brown

    What do u think?

  29. Nurazlin

    Whoo! Long time reader, first time commenter. I suggested Patience (Take That) and The Scientist (Coldplay) too. But my first choice was ‘The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot’ by Brand New. It’s from Steph’s playlist and it stuck with me. It’s awesome! And it’s from Edward’s POV.

  30. Becky

    its so hard to choose :(
    I think I’ll wait til round 2, lol. I can’t narrow it down to just 3 songs…

    and Dragoat is amazing (as always)! I’m sure Bailey is touched by his… love declaration.

  31. Andrea

    God! all the songs you’ve suggested are awsome!! i just dont know which song to suggest!
    I was thinking about “what hurts the most” by cascada, i know it’s actually from rascal flatts but because it’s from bella’s point of view cascada fits better. That song is just perfect when he leaves! and she has to deal with that and th shool is just borring and she doesnt understands why that happened!
    Although “lips of an angel” by Hinder, when edward sees bella in italy and he thinks hes in heaven! aww so cute!

  32. KT

    I totally agree with HeidiMarie’s choice of No Air by Jordin Sparks & Chris Brown. I was having trouble deciding what song to pick, but I saw No Air and I like, Oh my God! That song is PERFECT!!! So I chose it, too. In New Moon Bella literally says that being away from Edward is like not being able to breath. The whole mood of the book is kind of like this song.

  33. Deliquate

    I picked one of my favourites: If You Only Knew by Shinedown.

    I like the lyrics and I think it’s somewhat suitable for New Moon.

    If you only knew
    I’m hanging by a thread
    The web I spin for you
    If you only knew
    I’d sacrifice my beating
    Heart before I lose you
    I still hold onto the letters
    You returned
    I swear I’ve lived and learned

    It’s 4:03 and I can’t sleep
    Without you next to me I
    Toss and turn like the sea
    If I drown tonight, bring me
    Back to life
    Breathe your breath in me
    The only thing that I still believe
    In is you, if you only knew

    If you only knew
    How many times I counted
    All the words that wen’t wrong
    If you only knew
    How I refuse to let you go,
    Even when you’re gone
    I don’t regret any days I
    Spent, nights we shared,
    Or letters that I sent

  34. Rosalie

    I put No Air and Sound of Pulling Heaven Down

  35. Kimmie

    everyone has to go with Near to You. it’s perfect.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PA8opx-d44c

  36. TwilightObsessed*Eddiepus*

    I think that THE SCIENTIST BY COLDPLAY IS THE PERFECT SONG!!! It fits the book as a whole, and has the right tempo for the book too!!!
    “Come up to meet you, tell you I’m sorry, you don’t know how lovely you are”
    Every part of this song fits NEW MOON!!! I’m also thinking of suggesting “UNINTENDED” BY MUSE!!!!! “I’ll be there as soon as I can,
    but I’m busy mending all the
    pieces of
    the life I had before!”

  37. Ms. Cullen

    I think the best song for New Moon is Bring Me To Life by Evanescence :)

  38. marissa

    Weezer-The Other Way…This is the perfect song for why Edward leaves…admitedly it is a little cheerful, but come on, just look at the lyrics!!!

    I want to help you
    But I don’t know how
    I want to soothe you
    But I can’t speak out
    I have many fears
    About rejection
    I have many memories of pain
    I have always been a little shy
    So I’ll turn and look the other way

    [Chorus:]
    Other way
    Other way
    I will turn and look the other way

    I want to hold you
    But I am afraid
    I want to touch you
    But I’m not that way
    I have many doubts about my motives
    I have many fears about my greed
    I have always hurt the ONE THAT I love
    So I’ll turn and look the other way

    [Chorus:]
    Other way
    Other way
    I will turn and look the other way

    [guitar solo]

    I have many doubts about my motives
    I have many fears about my greed
    I have always hurt the one that I love
    So I’ll turn and look the other way

    etc…

  39. AShley

    I picked the song Lapse by Envy On The Coast because honestly I can’t even hear any partof that song without thinking of New Moon and there are parts that just fit so well. There was no way I could resist nominating it. Sample lyric:

    I know you know how it feels to make a clean break
    my bones are your bones
    my home is your home
    you must be so confused
    I got scared and ran away from you
    oh sweet divine predicament
    I can’t hide I can’t change the evident

    My other song is Everything you want because it also fits with the story as a whole with jacob being everything she could ever need and yet still not enough.
    Again sample:

    You’re waiting for someone
    To put you together
    You’re waiting for someone to push you away
    There’s always another wound to discover
    There’s always something more you wish he’d say

    You never did notice
    But you still hide away
    The anger of angels who won’t return

    Haha sorry for the long post. I couldn’t resist.

  40. TwilightObsessed*Eddiepus*

    Falling Away With You (Muse) would fit too…..there are just so many choices!!! hmm….When It Rains by Paramore, although I also think that Pressure would fit too…..

  41. Loony_Lovegood

    Okay, it took me a while but i think i picked my 3 songs:

    “Pressure” by Paramore
    “The Scientist” by Coldplay
    “That’s what you get” by Paramore

    (can you tell that i’m a paramore fan?)

    I was going to vote for “No Air”, but alot of other people were already voting for it…

  42. Sarah

    I think Earthquake by The Used is a GREAT choice. I didn’t even think of that.

    I submitted Dear God by Avenged Sevenfold. I think it is absolutely perfect.

    Though it would be perfect-er if Edward had taken the pictures from Bella because of the line “pictures and some memories will have to help me through.”

    And I think the “Dear God” thing kind of fits with Edward’s religious views. (Dear God, the only thing I ask of you is to hold her when I’m not around, when I”m much too far away.”

    I’m gonna shut up now. =D

  43. Elise

    I think “Hate Me” by Blue October cuz thats what song SM choose for this book

  44. Leah M

    i chose hate me by blue october because i think it fits absolutly perfecty when edward leaves bella and thats huge in the book! also only one by yellow card.i think that song is perfect too

  45. Syd

    I picked “I don’t love you” by My Chemical Romance.
    Because, for anyone that’s heard that song.
    It’s perfect.
    Even if SM didn’t pick it.

  46. Andrew (DefineNormal)

    I suggested three songs that I thought might fit. Or at least they reminded me of New Moon. Unfortunately, I doubt anyone else will suggest them. Anyway, they were:

    Near To You – A Fine Frenzy (a good song to express Bella’s Jacob related confusion)

    I’m Scared – Duffy (a good “Bella’s Lost Without Edward” song)

    Here With Me- Dido (THE BEST New Moon song)

    If you haven’t heard Here With Me, look it up. Its pretty much perfect.

  47. FeatherWriter

    I picked Changes by Yes. It really goes through the dynamic ending of the book

  48. Jennifer

    “Almost Lover” by A Fine Frenzy. I’m super suprised noone has suggested this one yet!

  49. Ashley Evelyn

    I suggested three.

    “Savior” by 30 Seconds to Mars (the absolutely perfect one, in my opinion); “Stand My Ground” by Within Temptation; and, “The Secret’s In The Telling” by Dashboard Confessional.

  50. Astrid

    I choose Broken by Amy Lee and Seether. I think it just describes the way they feel throughtout the book.

  51. Twilighter Fanpire

    Breaking Benjamin – Breathe

    “Breath”

    I see nothing in your eyes, and the more I see the less I like.

    Is it over yet, in my head?

    I know nothing of your kind, and I won’t reveal your evil mind.

    Is it over yet? I can’t win.

    So sacrifice yourself, and let me have what’s left.
    I know that I can find the fire in your eyes.
    I’m going all the way, get away, please.

    [Chorus:]
    You take the breath right out of me.
    You left a hole where my heart should be.
    You got to fight just to make it through,
    ’cause I will be the death of you.

    This will be all over soon.
    Pour salt into the open wound.

    Is it over yet? Let me in.

    So sacrifice yourself, and let me have what’s left.
    I know that I can find the fire in your eyes.
    I’m going all the way, get away, please.

    [Chorus:]
    You take the breath right out of me.
    You left a hole where my heart should be.
    You got to fight just to make it through,
    ’cause I will be the death of you.

    [Bridge]
    I’m waiting, I’m praying, realize, start hating.

    [Chorus:]
    You take the breath right out of me.
    You left a hole where my heart should be.
    You got to fight just to make it through,
    ’cause I will be the death of you.

  52. Ginger

    The ultimate New Moon songs for me are “My Immortal” and “Going Under” by Evanescence. “My Immortal” gives me goosebumps and reminds me of Bella’s life when Edward left her. “Going Under” is perfect for her dangerous actions and cliff diving.

  53. Denna

    I suggested Broken by Lifehouse I think it works for Bella, Edward and Jacob :)

    http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/lifehouse/broken.html

  54. Samantha

    Fix You by Coldplay is better than all the rest.
    That is all.
    Thanks!

  55. Angeliss

    Oh man… So many choices.

    But here are my final three.

    1. Frozen, by Within Temptation.

    It’s all about leaving someone for their own good, even though it nearly destroys you to do it, and you don’t even know if it will work, you can only hope… So Edward.

    2. No Air, by Jordin Sparks (feat. Chris Brown)

    How two people can’t live without each other, and not for lack of trying. Really fits both Edward and Bella.

    3. My Immortal, by Evanescence

    This one factors in poor Jacob, and the healing that Bella is going through, even leaving Jacob for Edward again.

    So I got all three main characters. I think they fit, but we shall see…

  56. Jen

    It almost seems like there should be two songs for the book? One would be for Bella and the complicated feelings of Edward leaving and becoming close with Jacob. The other would be for Edward returing and everything that his return brought- hope for the two of them, and his sincere attempts at trying to make it up to her….

  57. Marie

    I chose Hoodoo by Muse, because I think the lyrics suit perfectly Edward POV and how he wants to be with Bella but still leaves her for her own good…

    “Hoodoo”

    Come into my life
    Regress into a dream
    We will hide
    Build a new reality
    Draw another picture
    Of the life you could have had
    Follow your instincts
    And choose the other path

    You should never be afraid
    You’re protected from trouble and pain
    Why, why is this a crisis in your eyes again

    Come to be
    How did it come to be
    Tied to a railroad
    No love to set us free
    Watch our souls fade away
    Let our bodies crumble away
    Don’t be afraid

    I will take the blow for you

    And I’ve had recurring nightmares
    That I was loved for who I am
    And missed the opportunity
    To be a better man

  58. KIM

    I Will Follow You Into The Dark – Death Cab For Cutie – Edward

    Almost Lover – A Fine Frenzy – Bella about Edward

    Near to You – A Fine Frenzy – Bella about Jake

  59. Sarah

    I nominated Sing For Absolution by Muse, Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls, and Sound of Pulling Heaven Down by Blue October. Judging by the comments so far, I’m pretty sure one or two of these songs will make it. I hope so, at least! I think they all are perfect for New Moon in different ways.

  60. Sarah W.

    Darn it I should have voted for #57 song instead! Grrr! I totally forgot about it.

  61. Ana

    [b]I picked Skyway Avenue by We The Kings

    here’s the lyrics:
    She said let’s change our luck
    This night is all we’ve got
    Drive fast until we crash
    This dead end life
    Sweet dreams that won’t come true
    I’d leave it all for you
    Brick walls are closing in
    Let’s make a run tonight

    Blinded by the lights
    Hold you through forever
    Won’t let you go

    Cause if you jump
    I will jump too
    We will fall together
    From the building’s ledge
    Never looking back at what we’ve done
    We’ll say it was love
    Cause I would die for you
    On skyway avenue

    She said don’t change your mind
    Let’s leave this town behind
    We’ll race right off the cliff
    They will remember this
    It all got so mundane
    With you I’m back again
    Just take me by the hand
    We’re close to the edge

    Blinded by the lights
    Hold you through forever
    Won’t let you go

    Cause if you jump
    I will jump too
    We will fall together
    From the building’s ledge
    Never looking back at what we’ve done
    We’ll say it was love
    Cause I would die for you
    On skyway avenue

    Where are your guts to fly
    Soaring through, through the night
    And if you take that last step
    I’ll follow you
    Leave the edge and fly
    We’re finally alive

    Cause if you jump
    I will jump too
    We will fall together
    From the building’s ledge
    Never looking back at what we’ve done
    We’ll say it was love
    Cause I would die for you
    On skyway avenue
    So what’s left to prove
    We have made it through

  62. Ana

    I picked Skyway Avenue by We The Kings

    here’s the lyrics:
    She said let’s change our luck

    Hold you through forever
    Won’t let you go

    Cause if you jump
    I will jump too
    We will fall together
    From the building’s ledge
    Never looking back at what we’ve done
    We’ll say it was love
    Cause I would die for you
    On skyway avenue

    Where are your guts to fly
    Soaring through, through the night
    And if you take that last step
    I’ll follow you
    Leave the edge and fly
    We’re finally alive

    Cause if you jump
    I will jump too
    We will fall together
    From the building’s ledge
    Never looking back at what we’ve done
    We’ll say it was love
    Cause I would die for you
    On skyway avenue
    So what’s left to prove
    We have made it through

    Blue October – Sound of Pulling Heaven Down
    Justin sang it at the Breaking Dawn Concert and it was amazing!

  64. Twifanatic Amanda

    Also I chose (yes same as some other people but I really think these songs fit :D )
    I Will Follow You Into the Dark by Death Cab for Cutie
    and
    Comatose by Skillet

  65. Twifanatic Amanda

    OMG! Broken by Seether (feat. Amy Lee) This was my favorite song when it came out a few years ago! And it toally describes New Moon aswell! I think it has the whole book down not just some. Ok that’s it! No more XD

  66. Madeline

    Fix You, by Coldplay.

    Sums up everything perfectly.
    Look up the lyrics.

  67. The Questionable Shieka

    I choose I Miss You from Blink 182
    I heard this song and started to cry because I had just finished reading New Moon
    I capilalized the important lyrics
    “Hello there, the ANGEL from my NIGHTMARE. The shadow in the background of the mourge. The unsuspecting victim, Of darkness in the valley. We can live like Jack and Sally if we want. Were you can always find me. And We’ll have Halloween on christmas, and in the might we’ll wish this never ends.

    I miss you, miss you

    WHERE ARE YOU? And I am so sorry. I CANNOT SLEEP, I CANNOT DREAM TONIGHT. This sick strange darkness, some crepping on so haunting every night. And as I stared i counted, the webs from all the spiders, caughting things and eating there inside. Like in desicion to call you and hear YOUR VOICE OF TREASON. WILL YOU COME HOME AND STOP THIS PAIN TONIGHT?

    I miss you, miss you.

    Don’t waste your time on me. YOU’RE ALREADY THE VOICE INSIDE MY HEAD.

    I miss you, miss you

    Dont waste your time on me. YOU”RE ALREADY THE VOICE INSIDE MY HEAD

    I miss you, miss you”

    And reapeat.
    If you read that than you know why the song is So good for Newmoon

  68. Alyssa

    I voted for “The Scientist” by Coldplay as well…Like someone said, the tempo fits really well with New Moon, as well as the lyrics. And it’s just an amazing song.

  69. Madysen

    I think all of our suggestions are amazing! (Us Twilighters are good xD).
    There’s something about “My Immortal” by Evanescence that I really like though. It’s like the verses are Bella talking, and the chorus is Edward talking. It would play out like…

    Bella:
    I’m so tired of being here
    Suppressed by all my childish fears
    And if you have to leave
    I wish that you would just leave
    ‘Cause your presence still lingers here
    And it won’t leave me alone

    These wounds won’t seem to heal
    This pain is just too real
    There’s just too much that time cannot erase

    Edward:
    When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
    When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
    I held your hand through all of these years
    But you still have all of me

    Do you see what I’m getting at?
    Anyway, these are all great suggestions, it’s so hard to choose.

  70. Chapter Thirteen

    I think Katy Perry’s song Thinking of You is the perfect song for NM. It was already used as a chapter song. Read the lyrics and you’ll see how fitting this song is for this book; it covers Bella, Edward, and Jacob.

    Thinking of You

    Comparisons are easily turned
    Once you’ve had a taste of perfection
    Like an apple hanging from a tree
    I picked the ripest one
    I still got the seed

    You said move on
    Where do I go
    I guess second best
    Is all I will know

    Cause when I’m with him
    I am thinking of you
    Thinking of you
    What you would do if
    You were the one
    Who was spending the night
    Oh I wish that I
    Was looking into your eyes

    You’re like an Indian summer
    In the middle of winter
    Like a hard candy
    With a surprise center
    How do I get better
    Once I’ve had the best
    You said there’s
    Tons of fish in the water
    So the waters I will test

    He kissed my lips
    I taste your mouth
    He pulled me in
    I was disgusted with myself

    Cause when I’m with him
    I am thinking of you
    Thinking of you
    What you would do if
    You were the one
    Who was spending the night
    Oh I wish that I
    Was looking into…

    You’re the best
    And yes I do regret
    How I could let myself
    Let you go
    Now the lesson’s learned
    I touched it I was burned
    Oh I think you should know

    Cause when I’m with him
    I am thinking of you
    Thinking of you
    What you would do if
    You were the one
    Who was spending the night
    Oh I wish that I
    Was looking into your eyes
    Looking into your eyes
    Looking into your eyes
    Oh won’t you walk through
    And bust in the door
    And take me away
    Oh no more mistakes
    Cause in your eyes I’d like to
    stay….

  71. Emily

    I submitted “Paradise” by Vanessa Carlton. It makes me think of Bella going crazy without Edward.

  72. becky sue

    Oh man, I love Evanescence’s “My Immortal”…….uhh and……. (Such a tough decision!) Blink 182′s “I Miss You”…….and definetly something from Paramore, only they have soo many that work I can’t decide! (OH and Dragoat is flippin’ halarious! I seriously laughed for 10 minutes!)

  73. Ivette

    i chose ‘White Flag’ by Dido:
    i think it pretty much summarizes the book….

    “White Flag”

    I know you think that I shouldn’t still love you,
    Or tell you that.
    But if I didn’t say it, well I’d still have felt it
    where’s the sense in that?

    I promise I’m not trying to make your life harder
    Or return to where we were

    I will go down with this ship
    And I won’t put my hands up and surrender
    There will be no white flag above my door
    I’m in love and always will be

    I know I left too much mess and
    destruction to come back again
    And I caused nothing but trouble
    I understand if you can’t talk to me again
    And if you live by the rules of “it’s over”
    then I’m sure that that makes sense

    I will go down with this ship
    And I won’t put my hands up and surrender
    There will be no white flag above my door
    I’m in love and always will be

    And when we meet
    Which I’m sure we will
    All that was there
    Will be there still
    I’ll let it pass
    And hold my tongue
    And you will think
    That I’ve moved on….

    I will go down with this ship
    And I won’t put my hands up and surrender
    There will be no white flag above my door
    I’m in love and always will be

    I will go down with this ship
    And I won’t put my hands up and surrender
    There will be no white flag above my door
    I’m in love and always will be

    I will go down with this ship
    And I won’t put my hands up and surrender
    There will be no white flag above my door
    I’m in love and always will be

  74. Arielle

    I submitted “The Mixed Tape,” by Jack’s Mannequin, and “Slipped Away,” by Avril Lavigne. “The Mixed Tape,” is like an extended metaphor for how Bella feels after Edward leaves. “Slipped Away” is just perfect, and captures that whole feeling of losing someone you really love, and not seeing it coming.

  75. becky sue

    Ohh and “Cut” by Plumb.

  76. becky sue

    and….”Time is Standing Still” by The All-American Rejects is great too……

  77. becky sue

    …….and Avril Lavigne’s “When You’re Gone”

  78. Shelby

    I’ve come up with a few ideas.

    That’s what You Get- Paramore
    Blackout- Muse
    My Immortal- Evanescence
    Aim, Snap, Fall- The Spill Canvas
    Alexithymia- Anberlin

    This book is hard for me to come up with songs for. Eclipse is so much easier. But That’s What You Get fits with Bella and Jacob both. Blackout is for when Edward leaves Bella in the woods. My Immortal just seems to fit the mood. Idk. Aim, Snap Fall fits with Bella I think. Alexithymia fits really well with Bella’s zombie state. She just doesn’t want to get up and live, but she knows that she’s not living at all. “With down cast eyes, there’s more to living than being alive…” is the main line in Alexithymia, and that fits so well with Bella. Sadly, I can’t really think of anything that fits with Jacob for New Moon…but when Eclipse roles around, I will definitely have some!

  79. kelsey

    i chose broken by lifehouse….it just seems to fit heres some of the lyrics:
    The broken clock is a comfort, it helps me sleep tonight
    Maybe it can stop tomorrow from stealing all my time
    I am here still waiting though i still have my doubts
    I am damaged at best, like you’ve already figured out

    I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing
    With a broken heart that’s still beating
    In the pain there is healing
    In your name I find meaning
    So I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on
    I’m barely holdin’ on to you

    The broken locks were a warning you got inside my head
    I tried my best to be guarded, I’m an open book instead
    I still see your reflection inside of my eyes
    That are looking for a purpose, they’re still looking for life

    I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing
    with a broken heart that’s still beating
    In the pain is there is healing
    In your name I find meaning
    So I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on
    I’m barely holdin’ on to you

    I’m hangin’ on another day
    Just to see what you will throw my way
    And I’m hangin’ on to the words you say
    You said that I will be ok

    The broken lights on the freeway left me here alone
    I may have lost my way now, haven’t forgotten my way home

  80. Alice Cullen

    i put in 2 cuz i couldn’t decide. They were Bring me to life by evenascence and cut by plumb. They both describe bella’s depression over the course of the entire book really well. here’s a bit of hte lyrics from bring me to life:

    (Wake me up)
    Wake me up inside
    (I can’t wake up)
    Wake me up inside
    (Save me)
    call my name and save me from the dark
    (Wake me up)
    bid my blood to run
    (I can’t wake up)
    before I come undone
    (Save me)
    save me from the nothing I’ve become

    Bring me to life
    (I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside)
    Free me tonight

    frozen inside without your touch without your love darling only you are the life among the dead

    all this time I can’t believe I couldn’t see
    kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
    I’ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
    got to open my eyes to everything
    without a thought without a voice without a soul
    don’t let me die here
    there must be something more
    bring me to life

    and then some for Cut:

    I’m not a stranger
    No I am yours
    With crippled anger
    And tears that still drip sore

    A fragile flame aged
    Is misery
    And when our hearts meet
    I know you see

    I do not want to be afraid
    I do not want to die inside just to breathe in
    I’m tired of feeling so numb
    Relief exists I find it when
    I am cut

    I may seem crazy
    Or painfully shy
    And these scars wouldn’t be so hidden
    If you would just look me in the eye
    I feel alone here and cold here
    Though I don’t want to die
    But the only anesthetic that makes me feel anything kills inside

  81. Astrid

    Seriously, Broken by Seether and Amy Lee (of Evanescence) describes Jacob Bella and Edward. Just listen to it and youll see. :) here are the lyrics:

    I wanted you to know I love the way you laugh
    I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
    I keep your photograph and I know it serves me well
    I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

    ‘Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
    And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away

    You’ve gone away, you don’t feel me, anymore

    The worst is over now and we can breathe again
    I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away
    There’s so much left to learn, and no one left to fight
    I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

    Chourus
    ‘Cause I’m broken when I’m open
    And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
    ‘Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
    And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away

    ‘Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
    And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away

    You’ve gone away
    You don’t feel me here anymore

  82. Alli

    Ok, so I’m no t big into all these groups you all are suggesting, so mine probably won’t get picked, but I chose “How Do I Live” by Trisha Yearwood, “When You’re Gone” by Avril Lavigne, and “Wake Me Up” by Evanescence feat. Linkin Park

  83. Monica

    *sigh*
    I picked 3 songs for Twilight, and none of them ended up in the top 10…I think I’ll just wait until round 2, though maybe I’ll vote for Blue October. IMHO, “My Immortal” is just a bit too cliche…maybe I’ve just been listening to it too often. LOL

  84. Kirsten

    Check out ‘Addicted’ by Kelly Clarkson, it describes the book PERfectly. :]

  85. devz30

    Definitely No air.
    I’m pretty sure I know some other songs…I got to rack my brains up for some…

    “Check out ‘Addicted’ by Kelly Clarkson, it describes the book PERfectly. :]”

  89. JessieLynn

    Here’s the Lyrics to “The Older I Get” By Skillet. I think it just fits perfectly, and the music behind it rocks too, just saying.

    The walls between you and I
    Always pushing us apart
    Nothing left but scars fight after fight
    The space between our calm and rage
    Started growing shorter,
    Disappearing slowly day after day

    Chorus 2:
    I was sitting there waiting in my room for you
    You were waiting for me too
    And it makes me wonder

    Chorus 1:
    The older I get
    Will I get over it?
    It’s been way too long for the times we missed
    I didn’t know then it would hurt like this but I think
    The older I get
    Maybe I’ll get over it
    It’s been way too long for the times we missed
    I can’t believe it still hurts like this

    The time between those cutting words
    Built up our defenses
    Never made no sense it just made me hurt
    Do you believe that time heals all wounds?
    It started getting better
    But it’s easy not to fight when I’m not with you

    Chorus 2:

    Chorus 1:

    What was I waiting for
    I should’ve taken less and given you more
    I should’ve weathered the storm
    I need to say so bad
    What were you waiting for
    This could have been the best we’ve ever had

    Chorus:

    I’m just getting older
    I’m not getting over you I’m trying to
    I wish it didn’t hurt like this
    It’s been way too long for the times we missed
    I can’t believe it still hurts like this

  90. Krystie

    The song “Love Remains the Same” by Gavin Rossdale? I think it fits perfectly for New Moon. I can see it playing out as a movie in my head….

    A thousand times I’ve seen you standing
    Gravity like lunar landing
    You make me wanna run till I find you
    I shut the world away from here
    I drift to you, you’re all I hear
    As everything we know fades to black

    Half the time the world is ending
    Truth is I am done pretending

    I never thought that I
    Had anymore to give
    You’re pushing me so far
    Here I am without you
    Drink to all that we have lost
    Mistakes we have made
    Everything will change
    But, love remains the same

    **That’s talking about Edward’s pain in leaving to protect Bella and how he says he’s “done pretending he can be ‘normal’” even though he’s still completely in love with her and just saying that to save her–which is a big mistake…..**

    I find a place where we escape
    Take you with me for the space
    The city buzz sounds just like a fridge
    I walk the streets through seven bars
    I have to find just where you are
    The faces seem to blur
    They’re all the same

    Half the time the world is ending
    Truth is I am done pretending

    I never thought that I
    Had anymore to give
    You’re pushing me so far
    Here I am without you
    Drink to all that we have lost
    Mistakes we have made
    Everything will change
    But love remains the same

    **Bella being in Port Angeles and her first hallucination. And how she doesn’t feel anything without him. Everything blurrs together and is meaningless.**

    So much more to say
    So much to be done
    Don’t you trick me out
    We shall overcome
    ‘Cause our love stays ablaze

    We could have had the sun
    Could have been inside
    Instead we’re over here

    Half the time the world is ending
    Truth is I am done pretending
    Too much time too long defending
    You and I are done pretending

    **The two of them in her room after coming back from Italy and “the truth” comes out. And when he asks if she still feels the same and Bella says that there’s nothing he can do about her loving him, then Edward says “That’s all I needed to know” and that passionate kiss<–that I see happening when the music swells and the line “You and I are done pretending” because they can’t pretend that they can live without each other any longer.**

    I never thought that I
    Had anymore to give
    You’re pushing me so far
    Here I am without you
    Drink to all that we have lost
    Mistakes we have made
    Everything will change
    Everything will change

    I, oh I,
    I wish this could last forever
    I, oh I,
    as if we could last forever

    Love remains the same
    Love remains the same

    **This part describing how they’ve accepted that mistakes were made, but it doesn’t change anything because they know they should be together. And in Bella’s head, it could last forever if she is changed into a vampire. SO, everything changes, but love will remain the same….**

    That is my assessment. And no matter what anyone says, whenever I hear it, that’s what I think of. But what do you think?

  91. Cecilia

    Linkin Park or Screamo is good for the scene where Edward leaves and it begins to rain etc. Well, basically after he leaves and she’s trudging through the forest part. But I chose “Won’t go home without you” by Maroon 5.

  93. Taylor

    I picked Bring Me To Life by Evanescence and If You’re Gone by Matchbox Twenty.
    I feel as if most of the book is centered around Bella’s pain, and these songs show that perfectly.

  94. mj

    I did a somehwat obvious but great song. Comatose by Skillett. When you read the lyrics its almost telling the story of New Moon

  95. Rebeccah

    I chose flyleaf all around me…my chemical romance demolition lovers….and Kelly Clarksons since u been gone
    random, not to edgy song, but the lyrics somewhat go, and the instrumental part when it goes all loud is when I see bella jumping off the cliff or racing against time to saveedward

  96. Long Lost Cullen

    I submitted “Broken” by Lifehouse, and “My Immortal” by Evanescence. I have always thought those two songs really explain what Bella is going through, and her pain. I still have to find a third song for the rest of the book, or for the part in Volterra.

    I can’t wait to find out which songs are the winners!

    -LLC

  97. emi bee

    how about Save Me by Remo Zero? the lyrics aren’t exactly PERFECT, but i think the mood of the song is. no doubt. for anyone who’s never heard it, it’s the smallville opening song. classic.

  98. EdwardCullenisHOT

    I chose When Your Gone by Avril Lavigne , Pressure by Paramore, Something I Can Never Have and All Around Me both by Flyleaf, and Untouched by The Veronicas. Those are really good songs and they would fit in my opinion…. Anyone think so? I’m listening to Never Let This Go by Paramore I think i’ll enter that too.

  99. Tiana

    I think Come on get higher would be a great song. Every time i hear it i think of twilight. <33

  100. mj

    yall r crazy “Angels On The Moon” by: Thriving Ivory is the best song ever….it should totally b in the movie and i thought “Fall For You” should hav been in twilight

  101. Wol

    OMG most of these songs fit perfectly *_*.

    Hmmm I thing the best choice it will be Linkin Park – “Leave Out All The Rest” and I don't know WHY THIS song was in Twilight 0_o NOT in NEW MOON …

    I dreamed I was missing, you were so scared
    But no one would listen, ’cause no one else cared
    After my dreaming, I woke with this fear
    What am I leaving when I’m done here?

    So if you’re asking me, I want you to know

    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I’ve done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don’t resent me, and when you’re feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest

    Leave out all the rest, don’t be afraid
    I’ve taken my beating, I’ve shared what I made
    I’m strong on the surface, not all the way through
    I’ve never been perfect, but neither have you

    So if you’re asking me, I want you to know

    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I’ve done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don’t resent me, and when you’re feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest
    Leave out all the rest

    Forgetting all the hurt inside you’ve learned to hide so well
    Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself
    I can’t be who you are

    When my time comes, forget the wrong that I’ve done
    Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
    Don’t resent me, and when you’re feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest
    Leave out all the rest

    Forgetting all the hurt inside you’ve learned to hide so well
    Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself
    I can’t be who you are

    I can’t be who you are

  102. Courtney

    I think “The Angel and the One” by Weezer fits the entire book and is a beautiful song

    It's not my destiny to be the one that you will lay with
    So many reasons why I have to go but want to stay here
    Sometimes I want a taste but then I don't know what I'm saying
    You are the angel and I am the one who is praying

    There is another love that I would rather be obeying
    I see the ecstasy and already I'm anticipating
    I feel a deeper peace and that deeper peace is penetrating
    I've got the magic in me, I am complete is what I'm saying

    I'm flying up so high, my purple majesty displaying
    I've reached a higher place that noone else can make a claim in

    I'll take you there my friend
    I'm reaching out my hand, so take it
    We are the angels, and we are the ones that are praying

    Peace, shalom, peace, shalom
    Peace, peace
    Peace, shalom, peace, shalom
    Peace, peace

  103. Courtney

    I think “The Angel and the One” by Weezer fits the entire book and is a beautiful song

    I've got the magic in me, I am complete is what I'm saying

    I'm flying up so high, my purple majesty displaying
    I've reached a higher place that noone else can make a claim in

    I'll take you there my friend
    I'm reaching out my hand, so take it
    We are the angels, and we are the ones that are praying

    Peace, shalom, peace, shalom
    Peace, peace
    Peace, shalom, peace, shalom
    Peace, peace
