While we’re STILL Fishin’ our friends Stacey & Stacey talk the Eclipse soundtrack (and UC hijacks the conversation once or twice)
Dear Eclipse Soundtrack,
Stacey (East Coast) suggested we review you. I (West Coast Stacey/ snowwhitedrifted) jumped at the chance to be caught in the wake of someone else’s good idea. A little background on us: We are talking out of our a$$es when conducting a music review. Stacey (East Coast) likes the indie band stuff with a bit of sass on the Twilight soundtracks . I, snowwhitedrifted, like the dark/ moody/ indie kind of stuff. Let’s just put that disclaimer in there because we know everyone’s tastes are different. So can 2 graphic designers/ex theater majors offer any insight into the Eclipse soundtrack? Probably not, but we wrote you a letter anyway.
Stacey: Eclipse (All Yours) – Metric: Ahh…Bella’s theme. Girl power anthem just like Paramore’s songs in Twilight. I have been know to skip this one. I am sure the New Moon soundtrack had one of those too, but I only bought the Death Cab For Cutie track on that one. Isn’t the lead singer married to Zooey Deschanel? I think I have a girl crush on her. Wait a sec! I have a replacement band for this one. How about Zooey’s band She & Him. That would be great.
snowwhitedrifted: I skip this one too. But I too love Zooey. Do you think she ever looks in the mirror and sees Katy Perry?
UC: I HATE YOU BOTH. You know I’d go fake lesbian (and probably real) for Emily Haines from Metric ANY DAY.
Stacey: Neutron Star Collision – Muse: I know Stephenie hearts them, but not so much with this girl. But why? I finally realized that they sound like Queen. Seth Green Jr. forced me to watch ESPN when the song We Are The Champions came on with it’s soaring guitars. My three-year old likes it, but she also loves the Wiggles.
snowwhitedrifted: Yup, it’s a Muse song all right.
I’ll see your Wiggles and raise you a Fresh Beat Band.
Stacey: Didn’t Alice say that she was going to give those Fork kids what they want? That means Ludacris or The Black Eyed Peas. Just to hear Mike Newton yell, ” Holla! I need to crunk old dirty South style!” would have made Eclipse magical for me.
snowwhitedrifted: Yorkie totes has Bieber Fever. I mean c’mon , look at the bangs.
Stacey: Ours- The Bravery: Not bad. But for fun, let’s put in Pete Yorn, even Pete Yorn with Scarlett Johannson. ‘Cause I heart him, as much as Stephenie hearts Muse. *cough* Breaking Dawn *cough*
snowwhitedrifted: This one skips in my car, so I don’t listen to it. Wow, I’m down 3 for 3. Good reviewing on my part!
Stacey: Heavy In Your Arms- Florence and the Machine: Amazingly, I have not one smart a** comment about this song. I just like it.
snowwhitedrifted: This is my kind of song. Yearn-y and tragic. Where on earth was it in the movie? Why wasn’t it used when Jacob is carrying Bella? Just a little literal reference for kicks. Oh wait, maybe becaue Bella isn’t heavy. Side note: It could also be the girl’s answer to Timber Timbres’ “Lay Down in the Tall Grass”. I guess I just associate both songs with moving dead bodies.
Stacey: My Love-Sia: Pretty song that makes me think of dead people. You see, Breathe Me by Sia, was the last song of Six Feet Under where the whole cast croaks. Now every Sia song makes me think about that. Funny full circle though. Sia =Six Feet Under=Alan Ball=True Blood=Vampires=Twilight=Sia.
snowwhitedrifted: Great circle, Stace! Awe, the Leg Hitch song. Again, yearn-y and tragic, Love it. It makes me a little sad though, since I really want Edward Bella’s engagement ring.
UC: WHOA 6 feet under spoiler alert people! One of these days I do plan to have a major surgery where I’m going to catch up on all this TV I’ve missed!
More spoilers for TV shows off the air for years after the jump Continue…
