Basically all of the songs on Paramores 1st album would fit the movie.
With Riot!, not so much.

:( I understand why they don't wanna be in it.
If only they could've done New Moon, and not Twilight.

I think Weitz knows well enough about cinema to understand that an amazing soundtrack is best when it features a combination of (sort of) well known Alternative Bands and Indie artists. Look at the soundtrack for Garden State, which won Zach Braff the Grammy for best music compilation for a movie. Putting people like Paramore, Kelly Clarkson (which has been suggested on this thread :? ), and even Linkin Park makes the soundtrack lose its merit and it takes away from the tone of the film. Sure, I agree that there are some songs with lyrics that are PERFECT for certain scenes, but in reality it's all about the instrumentals, and if the soundtrack is REALLY good, then some songs may not be LYRICALLY compatible but if you listen closely you'll see the irony of choosing that song. Good songs for movies aren't blatantly OBVIOUS, they work. I agree, "My Immortal" by Evanescence is perfect for the cliff diving scene, but let's hope the film makers don't make that cliche decision. :)
Um, for one, Kelly Clarkson on a Twilight film? Really? EW.
Two, Paramore is NOT a bad band, a little mainstream, but their music fit in Twilight where it did.
Three, I don't think Evanescence is any less mainstream and commercial than Kelly Clarkson, and Paramore is, if we are going in that direction.
Imho. :?

^^Kelly Clarkson said she would want to a song for NM.
It just bugs me that now after Twilight was such a hit all of these people proclaim to be huge fans and they want to be apart of NM because they love the books and blah blah blah. If they really loved the books, then they'd do what Paramore (or, well, Hayley Williams) did and fight to be on the Twilight soundtrack because they actually love the story and not the fame.

Definitely "Run" - the Leona Lewis single version. Dramatically beautiful, yet sad at the same time. Would fit perfectly following the breakup scene in the woods. If you haven't heard this version, definitely check it out.

Yeah! I like, give Hayley major props. Because she was a big fan of the books, and she earned her spot, so I think Paramore deserves to be on the New Moon soundtrack!

I hope non of the artists from the Twilight movie are reparticipating. Since I do feel the only person who wasn't to fond with it.

I would wish they used some indie- or smaller bands for the soundtrack, but that ain't going to happen.
If they can't be indie I would love some Ben Folds, Taylor Swift, Rufus Wainwright, Stephen Kellog and the 6ers and stuff on there. I know it will never happen. But I think some more open mindeness and looking for more original ideas would make this a good soundtrack.

If Taylor Swift gets on this soundtrack I will shoot someone.
I really just want like rock and alternative stuff on not country or pop. I think that we should stick to the sort of songs that Stephenie put on her playlist. Another Muse song would be awesome! They have such good sound for New Moon. I was listening to Sing for Absolution yesterday (which is also on the NM playlist) and it's so haunting and great!
