The Music of New Moon: Match the Song to the Scene
The premiere is only four days away! Make your musical predictions for the sequel's pivotal moments
With the opening of New Moon just days away, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to pair songs from the top-selling soundtrack to five pivotal scenes in the Twilight sequel.
Here’s our musical match-made-in-heaven predictions for New Moon:
1. Bella’s Birthday Party: "Possibility" by Lykke Li
In this exclusive track for the album, Nordic singer Lykke Li purrs the lyrics, “By blood and by me, and I’ll fall when you leave.” The song couldn’t be a more somber match for Edward’s (Robert Pattinson) impending departure from his beloved Bella (Kristen Stewart) after her birthday party.

2. Bella’s Cliff-Diving Hallucination: "Hearing Damage" by Thom Yorke
So distraught over her breakup, Bella discovers that putting herself at danger (i.e.: cliff-diving into icy waters!) allows her to hallucinate Edward’s presence. Yorke’s opening phrase, “A tear in my brain/Allows the voices in,” has us convinced that this song’s perfect for Bella’s adventurous drop.
3. Jacob’s First Shift: "Monsters" by Hurricane Bells
Bella’s fallen for a vampire, and now she’s about to find out that her best friend Jacob (Taylor Lautner), who’s been consoling her broken heart, is a teen werewolf. Hurricane Bells’ “Monsters” – sample lyrics: “If you wasn’t too sure then now you know” and “The monsters are buried down deep inside” – is an apt track for Jacob’s big shift.
4. Jacob & Bella’s Near-Kiss: "Satellite Heart" by Anya Marina
Bella is torn. The love of her life left her and now she’s dealing with conflicted feelings for her hot werewolf bestie. We could see a shirtless Jacob singing Anya Marina’s lyrics to a heartbroken Bella in an effort to win her over: “So Pretty, So Smart/Such A Waste Of A Young Heart.”

5. Bella’s Pursuit of Edward in Italy: "Meet Me on the Equinox" by Death Cab For Cutie
With lyrics like, “Let our bodies intertwine/But always understand that everything ends,” this one calls for a Bella-Edward make out reunion after she saves him from exposing his shimmering skin in the Italian sun.
