Twibute is my tribute to Stephanie Meyer's book Twilight. The cover is a Photoshopped watercolor picture I painted.

Our neighborhood is having a talent night and I wanted to submit a picture, or two, but I knew I'd run out of time and energy. I trying to keep things simple and I will display the watercolor, the printout of the final picture, a copy of this mix and its tracklisting. I enjoyed the book, though it is teen (science) fiction.

It was fun to get caught up in the story and try and find a good soundtrack for it. I'll cite what chapter each song belongs to, but I don't want to go into too much detail and ruin anything for you. Please excuse the all upper caps of the chapter titles, that is how they are in the book. It has been a little while since I've been this stoked to compile a mix.

Chapter One: FIRST SIGHT - j'awe dropping mix opener. I love the guitar line on this song. Great lyrics too. This song captures the feeling of making a clean slate of life that I was hoping to find.

Track Description:
Chapter Three: PHENOMENON - Massive, Thorn and Eno = soiled shorts on my behalf. It starts with rain and a thunderstorm in the distance. Perfect for Forks, WA. "I'll stand if front of you Take the force of the blow Protection." I love the lyrics here too. Few songs this long don't leave me A.D.D., but this works so well I can't help myself. This plays in my head while Bella is in the hospital. Enjoy.

Track 2 from Machina/The Machines of God
Length: 00:04:41
Year: 2000
Track Description:
Chapter Four: INVITATIONS - The most fitting song about rain that I have found for this CD. Machinas was on heavy rotation for a long time, when it came out. The songs I like continue to hold up over time, like this one. I think the lyrics work very well for the book too. Bonus.

Track Description:
Chapter Five: BLOOD TYPE - for Bella in Biology, that fateful day. This song works even better from Edward's point of view in the chapter one. I love Vega. Such a great album. Why don't I listen to it at work? Okay, I will tomorrow. "Blood makes noise It's a ringin' in my ear And I can't seem to hear you in the thickening of fear."

Track 15 from The Outsider
Length: 00:02:47
Year: 2006
Track Description:
Chapter Six: SCARY STORIES - This was added to my wife's first mix I made for her "new" wheels. She thought it was a Coldplay song and really liked it and inquired after it. I forgot it was from Josh Davis and Chris James. This cut is different than the album version, it is slower and the backing vocals are farther back in the mixing. One of the best songs from 2006.

Chapter Eight: PORT ANGELES - I first heard this song on the first Six Feet Under soundtrack. Amazing. I love the mood this sets. Friends of ours shared that Hats (that contained the original version from The Blue Nile) was their making babies album. Again, amazing stuff.

Track Description:
Chapter Nine: THEORY - The drive from Port Angeles. I've been playing this one a lot recently. This version of the song is called "Idiot Version", though I don't think it is fitting. I think this fits very well with the high velocity of the drive, added with the severity and weight of the conversation for the advancement of B & E's relationship. (it isn't a d.t.r., mind you)

Track Description:
EPILOGUE - Some My Favorite dance music for... you know... dancing. Imagine Depeche Mode fronted by a pretty sweet female singer. Here you go. The chorus of "The ghost of dead teenagers sing to me while I am dancing" works for me, considering the company Bella keeps. Terrific track.

EPILOGUE - the slow song. If people knew about this gem, it would be played at dances more than "Forever Young" (which was our Prom theme in'93, not that the DJ played Alphaville's song) This went straight to my wife's next mixtape, after we were engaged. This is one I never shared, until I met my wife. This one would be on My Life in Eighty Minutes mix.

Song for the closing credits. The lyrics finally dawned on my spotless mind today. This album opener is the perfect mix closer for my tribute to a book that I really enjoyed. This is where I get all LeVar Burton on your hiney. I admit that I haven't read the next book in the series, so I'm sure this mix may change once I read it, but I'm very happy with it as it is now.
