So, news broke this morning that Paramore — they of all the "Misery Business" and "CrushCrushCrush"-ing — have been confirmed to appear on the upcoming "Twilight" soundtrack. They'll be contributing two new songs, "Decode" and a track with the sexy title of "TBA" (as in, they haven't decided what to call it yet). And while Paramore frontwoman/firecracker Hayley Williams is an avowed "Twilight" fanatic — she tells us that "Decode" is about "the building tension, awkwardness, anger and confusion between Bella and Edward" — we're still having a hard time picturing the band's decidedly up-tempo tunes in Stephenie Meyer's relatively dark world.
Perhaps this is all Paramore's attempt to make up for the "Twilight" stars' awkward introduction of the band at the VMAs?
The soundtrack for the film is being hand-selected by Alexandra Patsavas, the music supervisor who's made her mark on shows like "Gossip Girl," "The O.C." and "Grey's Anatomy." At Comic-Con, director Catherine Hardwicke said they'd acquired a song from Muse (Meyer's favorite). Our sources tell us that the soundtrack will also feature a new song from Perry Farrell, with production help from Alan Moulder and Atticus Ross (Nine Inch Nails) — a collaboration that sounds, well, just a little more "Twilight"-y.
Far be it from us to doubt the skills of Ms. Patsavas, but now we're turning to you, the avid "Twilight" fans, to give her a little instant feedback. Did she make the right choice with Paramore? And who else would you like to see on the film's soundtrack? Chime in below.
