I barely know what to say about this. This is Rob’s face after hearing the song Justin Guarini (who? Yeah, I know) wants added to the New Moon soundtrack.
I don’t even-I just-all I can say is, “No. No, dude with the funky fro from the FIRST fucking season of American Idol like a bizzilion years ago.” Honestly, way to try to latch on to the hot topic in the Hollywood right now to get your name back in the news.
Ok, I’m probably being a little harsh. It’s not that this is a BAD song, per say. It just doesn’t pass the bar set by the last soundtrack for the Twilight movie. I know I’m probably in the minority, but I found something to love about every single song on the Twilight soundtrack. I liked that the music they chose wasn’t by any bands or singers that are on the top 40 radio stations. When the music started playing in the movie scenes, it didn’t jolt you out of the movie by making you think, “Oh, that’s a Kelly Clarkson/Madonna/Jonas Brothers song.” You just thought, “Oh that’s an awesome/haunting/beautiful song.” and were able to stay in the story. The only time I recognized any of the music was during the baseball scene and I think you were meant to, since all fans of the series know that Muse was a major inspiration for Stephanie as she was writing.
So please, Summit. Do the right thing and tell this fool, “Thanks, but no thanks. Don’t call us, we’ll call you.” or however you want to put it to him. Ooh, I know! Just tell him that all the room on the soundtrack for ballads is already taken by Rob’s songs that he and all his talented friends wrote for the movie. That’s someone the fans DEFINITELY want to hear more from.
