Pick The Song For Eclipse (Round 1)

February 25th, 2009 at 9:35 am by Kaleb Nation

As is tradition on this site, the time has come to pick the song for Eclipse!

For each chapter I have written about, I have picked a song that I think best fits the mood and scenes in that part of the book.  However, as with my final reviews of  Twilight and New Moon, I am letting you, the loyal readers of my site, pick the final song that you think BEST FITS WITH THE ENTIRE NOVEL as a whole.

The voting will take place in two parts: the first will be suggesting songs, for one week, and then the second will be voting from the top ten most suggested. You can nominate up to three songs per person, and can also choose songs that were already used for chapter posts — use the form below to start sending them in!

There will perhaps also be certain epic prizes for people who send in suggestions and comment on this post: though I can’t quite reveal what they are until February 28 (oh wait, I’ve said too much…). Have fun!

    Oh yeah, I think it represents Edward talking to Bella in Eclipse about all the stuff they’ve been through. 🙂

  2. miinda

    i think they should pick think twice by eve 6 to be in eclipse because it really describes how Edward feels about Jacob

  3. Pru

    “I’ts My Party (and I’ll Cry If I Want To)” – your grandmother will remember this one by what’s-her-name.

  4. Nya

    AWESOME!!!

  5. Ash

    I picked the song under pressure by queen.
    😀
    I think its good cause, Bella Is pressured so much into choosing between edward and Jacob. Also many other reasons why i picked this song.
    lol.

  6. Kirsty

    I went with Katy Perry “Thinking of you”. Perfect lyrics.

    😀

  7. Loony_Lovegood

    Oh No
    It’s bad

    Got me feeling so weak
    When your holding my hand
    You smile I die
    Cause I don’t wanna feel what I’m feeling inside
    It’s to much it’s to late
    I’m so into you

    I’d be crushed
    If you walked away
    I’d be lost
    I’d be drowning in gray
    I’d be rooted beyond repair
    If you weren’t there
    I’d be crushed

    I swore
    I would be in control of myself
    What have you done with me
    Your lips (your lips)
    My skin (my skin)
    I don’t know where ya end
    And where I begin
    I hate you
    But I love you
    So don’t ever leave

    I’d be crushed
    If you walked away
    I’d be lost
    I’d be drowning in gray
    I’d be rooted beyond repair
    If you weren’t there
    I’d be crushed

    You got me falling
    And I never wanted to feel like I do
    I’m so into you

    Oh No
    It’s bad

    CRUSHED!

    If you walked away
    I’d be lost
    I’d be drowning in gray
    I’d be rooted beyond repair
    If you weren’t theerrree

    CRUSHED!

    I’d be lost
    I’d be drowning in gray
    I’d be rooted beyond repair
    If you weren’t theerrree!

    Yeeaaahhh

    I’d be crushed

    Oh No Oh No

    hey, am i a little to late to submit any songs for ur contest. because i have tons of songs that will work for eclipse.

    please reply soon or some one who knows =) thanks

    ill be back later =)

  11. emilia lizcano

    I’m finding my way back to sanity, again
    Though I don’t really know what
    I am gonna do when I get there
    Take a breath and hold on tight
    Spin around one more time
    And gracefully fall back in the arms of grace

    I am hanging on every word you say
    And even if you don’t want to speak tonight
    That’s alright, alright with me
    ‘Cause I want nothing more than to sit
    Outside Heaven’s door and listen to you breathing
    Is where I want to be

    I am looking past the shadows
    Of my mind into the truth and
    I’m trying to identify
    The voices in my head
    God, which one’s you?
    Let me feel one more time
    What it feels like to feel
    And break these calluses off me
    One more time

    ‘Cause I am hanging on every word you say
    And even if you don’t want to speak tonight
    That’s alright, alright with me
    ‘Cause I want nothing more than to sit
    Outside your door and listen to you breathing
    Is where I want to be

    I don’t want a thing from you
    Bet you’re tired of me waiting
    For the scraps to fall
    Off your table to the ground
    I just want o be here now

    *chorus*

    please please visit my website

    i have tons of song on my playlist that match eclipse

  12. FutureMrsPattinson

    I think Love Like Winter by A.F.I would be great for Eclipse

  13. Sabse

    Damn, that’s hard.

    I just kept listening to The Fray while reading Eclipse and I suggested “Look After You”

    I guess it fits each sides perfectly.

  14. ifsogirl80

    so can we submit more than one song?

  15. DreamingEternal

    I submitted “What Have You Done” by within temptation. Here’s Why:

    “Would you mind if I hurt you?
    Understand that I need to
    Wish that I had other choices
    than to harm the one I love”

    Anybody else see a Bella/Jacob parallel there? She just can’t help stringing him along even though it hurts him.

    “Why, why does fate make us suffer?
    There’s a curse between us, between me and you”

    Bella has a great boyfriend and a caring best friend — the potential for a happy life. But fate would have it that they are mythical creatures destined to hate each other and that Jacob cannot let go of his need to be more than friends.

    Anyway, i think this song really captures Bella’s inner turmoil as she is forced to choose between Edward and Jacob.

  16. Erinn

    Right now, I’m thinking ‘You and Me’ by Lighthouse. An awesome song representing an awesome book. Just look up the lyrics and you’ll see what I mean.

  17. Cass (:

    kalebnation, if you read the lyrics to the 3 songs i submitted, you can understand more of why i chose them!!

    CHARIOTS OF FIRE (G.A.Y. Remix)
    -By: BWO

    I feel fascination a kicking sensation
    This is my turn and I’m striking for gold
    Let’s fly this truck through the sky
    Worlds colliding we keep on riding

    “worlds colliding” def shows the different worlds of bella and edward

    and also the werewolf and vampire worlds clashing together

    THIS IS FOR KEEPS! Spill Canvas

    The streets are dark, my pulse is flat-lined
    as I’m running to you
    You sit completely unaware of what I’m about to do
    The air is thick with tension much like when we are together
    My fangs are aching as I’m pondering about you and I forever

    As I round your corner
    I am nervous that you won’t be my lover
    I knock three times and hope that my pale complexion won’t blow my cover
    You answer the door with your innocent face
    Would you like to leave this human race, tonight?

    Eternity will never be enough for me
    and eternally we’ll live our infallible love

    My brain is pumping an unusual secretion of lust
    Your eyes are softer now
    and your chin, it drips a bloody color of rust
    I am raising up the stakes of this round, I am playing for keeps
    Oh, would you like to leave this human race, tonight?

    Eternity will never be enough for me
    and eternally we’ll live our infallible love

    Follow me into the sea
    We’ll drown together and immortalize you and me
    Leave behind this lonely town
    We’re both better than this, it’s not worth being down

    Eternity will never be enough for me
    and eternally we’ll live our infallible love

    Follow me into the sea
    We’ll drown together and immortalize you and me
    Leave behind this lonely town (eternally)
    We’re both better than this, it’s not worth being down (eternally)

    this whole book is about bella letting go of her mortality and closing off any roads (ie jacob) interrupt her IMmortality

    Ohhh oohh oohh oohh ahh ohh ohh oohh oohh oohh ohh ohh oooh ohh(x3)
    : Deep Heavy Speaking :
    Bound at every limb by my shackles of fear
    Sealed with lies through so many tears
    Lost from within and persuing the end
    I fight for the chance to be lied to again

    You will never be strong enough
    You will never be good enough
    You were never conceived in love
    You will not rise above

    They’ll never see
    I’ll never be
    I struggle on and on to feed this hunger
    Burning deep inside of me

    : Deep Heavy Speaking :
    But through my tears breaks a blinding light
    Birthing a dawn to this endless night
    Arms outstretched, awaiting me
    An open embrace upon a bleeding tree

    Rest in me and I’ll comfort you
    I have lived and I died for you
    Abide in me and I vow to you
    I will never forsake you

    They’ll never see
    I’ll never be
    I struggle on and on to feed this hunger
    Burning deep inside of me

    They’ll never see
    I’ll never be
    I struggle on and on to feed this hunger
    Burning deep inside of me

    LYRICS

    Ohhh oohh ahh oohh ahh ohh (x4)

    :Heavy Scream:
    Rest in me and I’ll comfort you
    I have lived yet died for you
    Abide in me and I vow to you
    I will never forsake you

    They’ll never see
    I’ll never be
    I struggle on and on to feed this hunger
    Burning deep inside of me

    Ohhh oohh ahh oohh ahh ohh (x4)
    fade out

    Song Title :The LAST SONG I’M WASTING ON YOU

    I HOPE YOU LIKE IT =)

    SONG
    Sparkling grey,
    They’re my own veins.
    Any more than a whisper,
    Any sudden movement of my heart.
    And I know, I know I’ll have to watch them pass away

    Just get through this day

    Give up your way, you could be anything,
    Give up my way, and lose myself, not today
    That’s too much guilt to pay

    Sickened in the sun
    You dare tell me you love me
    But you held me down and screamed you wanted me to die
    Honey you know, you know I’d never hurt you that way

    You’re just so pretty in your pain

    Give up my way, and I could be anything
    I’ll make my own way
    Without your senseless hate… hate… hate… hate.

    So run, run, run
    And hate me, if it feels good.
    I can’t hear your screams anymore

    You lied to me
    But I’m older now
    And I’m not buying baby

    Demanding my response
    Don’t bother breaking the door down
    I found my way out

    And you’ll never hurt me again.

    i love the song “think twice” by eve6. it fits PERFECTLY! please hear it 🙁

  29. Reading Eclipse: Chapter 26 (Ethics) | Twilight Guy - with Kaleb Nation

    […] Me by Sum 41 for the first time today, and it had to be today’s chapter song. Good possible pick for the Song for Eclipse? var addthis_pub = ‘kanation1’; var addthis_brand = ‘TwilightGuy.com’;var addthis_language = […]

  30. Jo

    Ok I know this is crazy cause it’s country but i just heard it today and all i could think about was Jacob and Edward and Bella. They both feel the same about her, she’s all they want. Kinda like their brand of heroin but it’s “She’s My Kind of Rain” Tim McGraw. Crazy I know but so, i don’t know, heartfelt? What’s the word I’m looking for. Anyway, here’s just a few lines scattered here and there…

    She’s my kind of rain
    Like love in a drunken sky
    She’s confetti falling
    Down all night

    She sits quietly there
    Like water in a jar
    Says, Baby why are you
    Trembling like you are

    So I wait
    And I try
    I confess like a child

    She’s the sun set shadows
    She’s like Rembrandt’s light
    She’s the history that’s made at night

    She’s my lost companion
    She’s my dreaming tree
    Together in this brief eternity
    Summer days, winter snows
    She’s all things to behold

    Anyway i know i’m all alone on this one, i just thought i’d share it. I think it’s beautiful, tho probably more for their new love in Twilight more than Eclipse. Enjoy

    There’s a new band called “The Becoming” with a song I think fits the book. It’s called “Under the Full Eclipse,” and I feel both the lyrics and the overall style fit the mood perfectly. Here be the lyrics:

    I kissed the death of our hearts today
    Now I’m addicted to the way it tastes
    Can you feel it setting in?
    This world it gets so cold sometimes

    It’s you that makes me feel this way
    I can’t help you, I can’t begin to explain

    Tell me if it’s wrong
    Can we take it?
    To be holding on
    Can we make it?
    Can we make it through this endless night?

    There’s a piece of you haunting me
    Every street became a memory
    And I’ve been losing hope in love
    Our scars may never heal with time

    I cannot bare the thought
    Of having loved and lost
    And waking up each day
    Knowing that something’s gone
    My world is closing in
    Oh what a deadly kiss
    But love can still survive
    Under the full eclipse

  32. Lola

    I think This is Your Life by The Killers fits perfectly with this book 🙂

  33. Tash

    I think ‘I Caught Myself’ by Paramore is a great choice for eclipse

  34. Michelle

    I think missing you by first lady, lovely song, really tucks at my heart strings.

  35. Elvin Madden

    i love you Miley.

  36. Cornelius Forbes

    i saw them at the gibson ampitheartre here in LA they rocked so hard!!! I LOVE U NICK JONAS!! lol wow that does not sound like me.

  37. cherylRI

    Hey it won't let me fill in the submit form?????? Anyway I think Hold me in your Arms by Ray LaMontagne is a great song for Edward and Bella.

  38. theWvrockers

    I think the song: “Rangers” by A Fine Frenzy
    would be a really good song for Eclipse 😀
