I look forward to the score, but I hope they can put Robert Pattinson's version of the Lullaby on here as a bonus track. Or at least on the DVD as an extra. I like the love theme version, but it's not exactly a lullaby, from what I've heard so far. Just curious about Rob's take on it.
I definitely agree with you that Bella's lullaby is supposed to be the piano only and that I also like Carter's version, but all the other instruments involved kind of threw me off. If they gave us Rob's version of the lullaby that would be amazing!! He is such a talented person and if they could show more of him by including that, so many people would buy this CD, I know I will cause I was a bit disappointed that they didn't include all of this in the soundtrack.
I was incredibly bummed when I heard that they'd be using the composer's lullaby -- I mean, it wasn't even really introduced AS the lullaby in the movie, which was kind of frustrating for me... especially when it really isn't a lullaby. It's pretty, but I'd like to hear Rob's lullaby. He DID say that it was the most beautiful piece he'd ever written on the piano, and I think that it would be cool if they added it as a special feature for iTunes or something, since the CD's are already made. Maybe a bonus on the DVD that people can rip and distribute on the internet?
I'm glad you posted this -- I thought that I was the only one. Okay, so not the only one, but I didn't think that anyone else was really focusing on that anymore.
hey i was pretty dissappointed too till i looked on limewire for "Bella's Lullaby" and the one i happen to get said it was by edward cullen which i know is completely not able too happen but i listened to it anyways and i sat at my computer and cried for 3 minutes and 8 seconds it was possibly the most beautiful piece of raw piano playing i have ever heard in my life. then i really wanted to know who done it originally. and it was by Yiruma called River Flows In You. even though robert or carter burwell didn't do it as you listen to it you can visualize that this is the tpe of lullaby SM had in mind when she wrote the book, check it out it's great;)
You are right about River Flows In You.... it really is a moving piano piece. And it is so much closer to what I expected for Bella's Lullaby. Thanks for the suggestion, now I have a better song in my head when I read the books :)
The song "River Flows in You" by Yiruma is a very moving piece. It does fit the moment in the books much better in my opinion but the song in the movie was lovely too. You will have better luck finding the live video of Yiruma playing the song on Youtube. Bring your box of tissues ;)
