Our friend ERIK DAVIS at CINEMATICAL called the songs on the upcoming TWILIGHT soundtrack the kind of music you “throw on in the background while you dream of sexy vampire boyfriends.”
This seems odd, as most of the tracks are the kind of thing you hear while waiting to get your teeth cleaned at the dentist’s office.

Like the books, the movie targets the teen set while attracting a much older audience. When we were that age, hardcore bands like NINE INCH NAILS and MARILYN MANSON would have made the cut — not easy listening acts like Iron & Wine.
Check out our own version after the jump and let us know if we made a vampire soundtrack that doesn’t suck.
