The first in the Twilight Saga, Eclipse, focuses on the tumultuous relationship between Bella and Edward. It features a who’s who of beloved musicians, including Michael Bublé, Céline Dion, and many more. It was originally released in 2008, and remains one of the best-selling albums of all time. The score was composed by Stephen Macleod and it was originally performed by the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, with Sarah Kay as the narrator. If you haven’t heard it yet, you need to add it to your playlist. It’s truly an amazing album.
The second film, New Moon, focuses on the friendship between Bella and Jacob. It was released in 2009 and features an all-star cast, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett, Martin Freeman, and many more. It was also the first collaboration between Robert Pattinson and his longtime friend, director Shane Black. The score was composed by James Newton Howard and it was originally performed by the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus with Sarah Kay as the narrator. This playlist will make you feel all the love and loyalty between Bella and Jacob. It’s a perfect match for the character of Jacob, who is played by the one and only, Ryan Gosling.
The third film, Breaking Dawn, was released in 2011 and focuses on the romantic story of Bella and Edward’s newborn daughter, Emmett. It was nominated for several awards, including Best Score and Best Song for Twilight’s “Let Me Take You Away.” The film itself was also nominated for Best Picture and it won a Golden Globe. The score was composed by Hans Zimmer and it was originally performed by the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus with Sarah Kay as the narrator. This album will make you feel the love and elation of a new family member. You’ll also feel the overwhelming emotions of a strain on the relationship between Bella and Edward. It’s an emotional journey and it’s certainly one of the most beautiful soundtracks ever made.
The fourth film in The Twilight Saga, Four Seasons, was released in 2012 and focuses on the relationship between Bella and Jacob. It won the award for Best Cinematography at the 2013 British Independent Film Awards and it was nominated for Best Original Score and Best Song for “When You’re Falling.” The film itself was also nominated for Best British Independent Film at the Raindance Film Awards.

You’ll feel inspired by the beautiful countryside around you as you make your way through the haunting score.
The fifth film in The Twilight Saga, Belle, was released in 2013 and tells the story of a marriage proposal at Tiffany’s. It was directed by Pierre-Loup Schiffer and it features an all-star cast, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Justin Timberlake, and many more. The album consists of original music and classical pieces by Ludwig Van Beethoven, Claude Debussy, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. If you’re a fan of romantic comedies, you’ll love this album. It’s one of the best soundtrack opportunities you’ll ever get. This is the perfect album for the character of Belle, played by Gwyneth Paltrow. She’s an independent high-spirited woman who doesn’t need a man to complete her.
There are seven Twilight soundtracks in all. The first four were all composed by James Newton Howard and they were performed by the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. The remaining three were composed by Hans Zimmer and performed by the Metropol Orchestra. If you’re just starting to dive into the series, these are some of the best-sounding albums ever made. As with all good things, though, it’s time for them to come to an end.
That’s right. The Twilight Saga is over. As of this writing, the series has not yet been renewed for another movie season. This, however, does not mean that it’s time to hang up on the music. Far from it. There are still plenty of great albums from the series to fill your playlist with. In fact, there are so many iconic songs from the films that it would be hard to fit them all on one playlist. So, we’ve decided to split the songs into two separate playlists: an Eclipse playlist and a non-Eclipse (including New Moon, Breaking Dawn, and Four Seasons) playlist. These are three phenomenal soundtracks that you must hear to believe. Now, let’s take a journey back in time to relive these remarkable musical moments.
For our friends in the United Kingdom, we have also prepared a little gift for you. Many of the songs on this list are available on iTunes or Amazon UK, and most of them are also on Spotify. So, if you or someone you know is a fan of The Twilight Saga, we hope this playlist will help you get into the mood.
