So, brilliant, beautiful Twilighters. There has been a Breaking Dawn: Part 1 song officially announced! It is "It Will Rain" by Bruno Mars.
I know, I know. Kate.moon already beat me to the punch (She must have super powers), but I thought I'd post a preview of the song and a theory of mine for the song in the movie.
I think this preview was pretty okay, though I had been really waiting for Bruno to start singing. Though I am not a huge fan of his music (I have his album but never listened to the whole thing :P), I think he has a fabulous voice.
I really wonder where this track would go in the movie. It would be so awkward if it played during the sex scenes, in my opinion, but the Twilight movies are rather awkward anyway. This piece of the song reminds me of a couple of other songs, including:
- "4 Minutes" by Madonna feat. Justin Timberlake (Just a little bit, if anyone thinks I am insane for thinking this.)
- "A Million Miles An Hour" by East Conference Champions (It was featured on the Eclipse soundtrack.)
- "I Belong To You [New Moon Remix]" by Muse (It was featured on the New Moon soundtrack.)
- "Lovesong" by Adele (Again, just a little bit.)
I think this song will be interesting. I've seen that lots of fans are angry with the fact that Bruno Mars is on the soundtrack, but personally, I don't think some of them are being very open-minded. Most of those anti-anyone that isn't Muse or Paramore fans probably haven't even heard the preview. It's not as pop as you'd think, as it comes from a mainstream artist as popular as Bruno.
So what do you think? (By the way, the full song premieres in five days, I'm pretty sure.)
With Twilightish love,
