Fan Made Friday: Twilight Inspired Music

In honor of the New Moon Soundtrack (early!) release today, I thought I'd bring you an assortment of Twilight inspired music. Various groups, either formed to sing Twi-music, or bands inspired to write something related to the series.

You've heard of the Mitch Hansen Band, I'm sure. Stephenie Meyers herself is a fan. I had heard their hilarious song Jacob Black, but until recently, hadn't heard any others. Here is "Lullaby", not their interpretation of Edward's creation, but just a song about his feelings as he was writing Bella's Lullaby.

Be sure to listen to the rest of their songs here.

Take a listen to the Twilight Music Girls, I've chosen "The Lion and The Lamb" to share with you, it's amazingly beautiful, both the music and the voice.

Take a listen to Kathleen Colton May, I don't have a youtube video for you, but there are several pieces, mostly instrumental. My personal favorite is "The Hunt".

Newly recommended to me is The Bleeding Forks. Amy Murphy, from Creation Entertainment (the folks bringing us the Twilight Conventions) brought them to our attention recently. The Bleeding Forks write songs inspired by the characters of Twilight themselves.

Do you have any Twilight inspired music? And have you picked up your copy
of the New Moon Soundtrack yet? Leave a comment and tell me what you think!
