There are certain tunes that can only be described as “singable,” and the Twilight Restaurant theme song is one of them. Since the song was used as the opening theme song for the Twilight movies, it has become extremely recognizable. When you hear this song, it instantly brings to mind the image of a dark, handsome vampire staring at you with soulless eyes from behind a screen. But even if you didn’t watch the Twilight movies, you likely know the tune from other media. It has been covered by popular artists, including Leona Lewis, who performed the song on the British show, The X Factor.
While the song is essentially an instrumental track, with just piano and strings, there are some indications that it was originally written with vocals. There is a bridge at the end of the track, for example, that sounds like it was meant to be sung. The following video from the film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s novel, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, gives you a good idea of what the song is like with vocals. Unfortunately, it doesn’t feature anyone matching Rob’s vocal stylings, but it does feature some pretty darn good lip-syncing:
That being said, it’s fairly easy to sing along to the tune of “Over the Twilight River,” and once you get the hang of it, you’ll feel like you were born with a silver tongue. So, here’s how to sing like Robert Pattinson on the Twilight Restaurant Theme Song.
Tune Into The Vibe
Before we get started, it’s important to mention that this isn’t meant to be a comprehensive guide to vocalizing the tune. Instead, it’s designed to give you an idea of how to sing the song correctly. If you want to learn how to sing the song correctly, there are plenty of other resources available. What this guide will give you are the basics of singing along to the tune.
To start, it’s important to match the tempo of the song. This one isn’t tricky, as it’s in BPM (beats per minute), so all you need to do is sing at a steady 120 for optimal results.
The lyrics to the song are also important to match, which is why you should learn them by heart. The most important thing is to connect with the music at a soul level, so that you can express yourself through your voice in a way that the song will interpret correctly. When you feel like you have achieved that, you can start moving around, stretch your arms, and use your voice as much as you want. That’s when the real magic happens.
Open Your Mouth Wide
The first thing you need to do is open your mouth wide like Robert Pattinson. You do this by sticking out your jaw while breathing deeply. Remember, this is a slow, sensual song, so you want to keep those sensual tones. You also want to relax your throat, as it will make the tingling in your voice seem real. After you’ve opened your mouth wide, it’s time to start singing. Remember: slow, deep breaths, and relaxed throat!
As you open your mouth, let it gently hug the music. You don’t need to belt out the words with fury, as there is no need to. Make sure the tone of your voice matches the tone of the song. If it’s sensual, it will be soft and low; if it’s passionate, it will be high and tense. Keep that in mind as you sing along.
There are three basic positions that your vocal cords need to be in to sing this song correctly. They’re described as the open, mid, and close positions, and they’re named after the way that your jaw, tongue, and larynx (voice box) are positioned when you sing. As you get used to opening your mouth and vocalizing with these positions in mind, you will find it easier to achieve the desired effect.
Let Your Voice Carry You
The next thing you need to do is let your voice carry you. You do this by imagining that you’re floating on a cloud above the ground, and the sound of your voice is gently caressing the hairs on the back of your listener’s necks. To achieve this effect, you must use your diaphragm. When you use your diaphragm, you allow the air to rush into your lungs. This fills your lungs with air, which makes your voice carry farther. As you take in more and more air, your voice will gradually become more powerful.
When you use your diaphragm, your stomach should stay calm and relaxed. This is because your diaphragm is attached directly to your stomach, and when your stomach is relaxed, your diaphragm will also be relaxed. You can also focus on relaxing your throat and jaw a bit more, as these will naturally follow the pattern of your stomach. As you get better at using your diaphragm, you will find it easier to sing the song without thought, following your instincts and what feels right for the music. You will notice a huge improvement in your voice in no time.
Explore Different Techniques
The next step is to explore different techniques. Different singing techniques can help get those full bodied, sensual tones that Robert Pattinson is known for. One of the best vocal coaches around, Michael Anthony, suggests using your chest, not your throat, to project your voice. So, instead of tensing your throat, which can cause you to lose your voice, he suggests that you push out your chest. When you do this, you allow your vocal cords to vibrate, which can result in the full, rich sound that he is known for.
There are many different vocal techniques that you can learn, which can help you find the right tone for this song. It’s important to find the one that works best for you, so that you can connect with the music and allow your voice to carry all its richness. You should also learn to control your voice, so that you don’t lose it, as this is the main cause of most people’s bad singing voices. Once you can control your voice, you can make even the most complicated melody sound simple and natural. This is because you are using your innate abilities and not relying on strict pitch or tempo.
When you’re learning to control your voice, it can be helpful to record yourself singing, and then hear yourself play back. By doing this, you can isolate the parts of your voice that you need to work on. Once you’ve identified the areas for improvement, you can start taking steps to fix them. This is why it’s so important to learn to control your voice; without it, you will never be able to sing with confidence. If you want to sing like a star, you need to start by learning to control your voice. That’s what this guide will help you do.
Finally, it’s time to practice. The more you practice, the better you will get. This goes for anything in life; the more you practice, the more you will improve. Practice makes perfect, and when it comes to singing, perfection is all that matters. Once you’ve gotten the basics, it’s time to move around and feel your voice expanding with each note. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different tones and pitches, as this is what makes singing so much fun. If you want to sing with confidence, you need to have fun, so turn up the music and let yourself go!
