We have gotten more comments, emails, tweets, etc. on the Breaking Dawn Part 1 soundtrack than any other soundtrack in the franchise. It’s not even close to the previous frontrunner, Twilight. The Twilight Examiner, Amanda Bell, has a really great article up on the 5 best placed songs in the movie.
5. The Noisettes – “Sister Rosetta”: One of the things Breaking Dawn – Part 1 did really well was to add some humor in the in-between points, and “Bella’s” need for “a few human moments” was one such. She races around trying to prepare for what is, to just about every woman, a pivotal night in her life by brushing her teeth, shaving her legs, and picking out something to wear. “Sister Rosetta” was a great song for this scene because it was quick, happy, and a little bit rattling, just like “Bella.” I also quite like the joinder of the lyric, “Queens of Twilight” with “Bella.” She is, after all, the “Queen” of Twilight.
4. Carter Burwell – “Love, Death, Birth”: This piece of the score came in at the point when “Bella” is fighting for not just her own life but for her baby’s as well. A lot happens here. “Renesmee” comes into being, for one, and “Bella” dies and is re-born herself. Burwell’s return to the Saga for Breaking Dawn was an exciting one, and having him score this moment proves just why.
