Soundtrack Saturday: #4

[I'm posting this today as I'm out at a Snow Patrol (how fitting!) gig after work tomorrow, so I won't be around].

This Soundtrack Saturday idea came from Adele at Persnickety Snark.


I've had somewhat of a Twilight week this week, so that's what I've chosen to talk about for this Soundtrack Saturday. I'll start by saying that I love Stephenie Meyer's book playlists, and that they're all made up of brilliant music by some amazing bands (Blue October, Jimmy Eat World, Coldplay, Keane etc...).

However, my own personal Twilight song is Make This Go On Forever by Snow Patrol. It's one of my favourite songs, and I think the lyrics scream Edward Cullen.

Please don't let this turn into something it's not
I can only give you everything I've got
I can't be as sorry as you think I should
But I still love you more than anyone else could

The last girl and the last reason to make this last for as long as I could
First kiss and the first time that I felt connected to anything
The weight of water, the way you taught me to look past everything I have ever learned
The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love

And I don't know where to look
My words just break and melt
Please just save me from this darkness

Listen to it on YouTube here.

Do you have any thoughts on Twilight music? Do you have a song you apply to the book, or any favourites from Stephenie's playlists?

Ooh boy. I enjoy Stephenie's playlists too; they give me something new to listen to when I can't decide what I want to hear. And those lyrics you posted just blew me away. I can see why they fit Edward. Unfortunately I hardly ever pay attention to lyrics (I'm totally not an aural learner, more visual)... hehe.

Thanks for this. I have to go search for the song now!

I LOVE snow patrol!! They're one of my favorite bands :D This song is indeed really great and so are the lyrics of course. I think my favorite song of theirs is The Finish Line. Beautiful.

Ooh! Good song!

One of my favorite songs that reminds me strongly of Twilight is I'd Come For You by Nickelback... or more accurately New Moon.
