My Twilight Saga Playlists

Since I’ve discovered Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga, it seems that I’ve been stuck between universes. I know it’s a serious addiction because it’s definitely cutting into my knitting time!
So, to celebrate my enjoyable distraction, here are my Twilight playlists. Songs are listed in chapter order (skipping selections where I haven’t found a perfect fit as of yet), and any abbreviations refer to character’s names (for example, B would be for Bella).

  1. Ahhhh I was wondering what people meant when they were talking about playlists.

    The Truth: Stay–Shakespeare’s Sister
    Epilogue–Treaty: With or Without You–U2
    Compromise: I Want You Now–Depeche Mode

    I totally agree – I have to look up some of the other choices – especially Lowen & Navarro. I love Navarro.

  2. Oh man, you got it baaaad.

    My fave of your picks? “Forever Young” and “With or Without You”. Perfect.
    But no Muse? I love it now.

  3. And one more thing,
    No “I’m Only Happy When it Rains” by Garbage?

  4. Jamie Said:

    And I thought I had it bad! I was really surprised to find Chocolate by Snow Patrol on yours too. I don’t have a complete list yet like you do, I just finished the books a couple days ago. It feels weird getting back to my knitting after reading Twilight because now I don’t want to stop. Ahhhh, to read & knit at the same time….. But to get me through the wasteland that is from now until August (with a slight reprise in May when the first chapter of Breaking Dawn will be available) I’m going to cast on Bella’s gloves. Thanks for that!

  5. mari Said:

    Great playlists!
    You have a lot of my favorite music on here. Muse, Depeche Mode, The Smiths!

    Love the look of your blog, btw. Glad I found you. 🙂

  6. dawn Said:

    take a listen to depeche mode’s the sweetest perfection. to me, it fits edward’s need for bella. it’s perfect.

  7. Betsy Said:

    Hi – I love your work.
    I’m publishing a magazine about women fans of sci fi fantasy horror etc.The next issue is on Twilight. I would like permission to use your Twilight Playlist. May I? What name should I put it under (do you want your real life name on it)? I like how you write and that you read fast. Perhaps you could write some books reviews in the future.

    Let me know,
