Soundtracks: The Twilight Saga

As obsessed as I am with music - finding new and enjoying old - I have come up with a list of my all-time favorite soundtrack albums. For me, it was impossible to narrow it down to 5 or even 10. I'm pretty sure my list of faves includes more than 30. Lame? way! Amazing mixes, scores and featured artists.. And what's a movie (or TV show) without the music?

I want to share each of my top picks - complete albums that I adore from beginning to end. So without overwhelming myself or anyone else, I plan to spread them out (in no particular order) over the next several months.

To begin this lil' journey of albums I heart, I had to start with Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse. If you've been following this, you know I'm not an obsessive/screaming/ball-my-eyes-out Twilight fan, but I do enjoy the books and the movies. I seriously cannot get enough of these compilations! SO GOOD!

I can't post this without giving a shoutout to my mum! She started reading the Saga before I even did, and when the first soundtrack came out, I'd like to say it transformed my little mom into a music machine! I think she'd give her left arm to meet MUSE in person, and I can admit I probably would too! Oh momma, I love you and your newfound, amazing taste in music!
