Hana has been coming up quite a bit in my Searches, so I thought maybe it was time to revisit this topic. Some time ago I posted about Hana Pestle and her Need (get it?) to find her way onto the New Moon soundtrack. She has a sort of Tori Amos/Alanis Morissette sort of sound. Her song is beautiful and fits New Moon perfectly. I still think it’s a great fit for the scene in the forest after Edward leaves, but others on Hana’s MySpace page proposed it for the “blank pages”. That’s a great idea! I could see a montage of Bella walking around like a zombie with this playing over it. It would really make the audience feel the emptiness of that period of Bella’s life.

Has anyone heard anything new about the soundtrack? I don’t see anything online, myself. Until we hear anything, there’s always SMeyer’s playlist.

I came across Hana Pestle and her song, Need, while tag surfing. She feels that her song is a great fit for the New Moon soundtrack, and I must agree. While listening I imagined it playing while Bella is lying on the ground in the forest after Edward leaves. Good luck, Hana!

Current mood:  jolly

i am a twilight fanatic. and i’m proud of it, despite my best friend’s constant teasing that it resides in the “tween” section at barnes and noble. i gave in to the madness a few months ago and read the first three books in less than 24 hours. mix in my highly addictive personality….not good.

i was hiking when i realized that i have a song that could be perfect for new moon, the second twilight book/movie.

hence, i have an assignment/request for you!
i need lots of help getting my song “need” into the ears of the movie’s director, producers, music production manager, as well as the author stephanie meyer’s. if you are a twilight fan, listen to the song, read the lyrics, think about what happens in new moon, and just imagine the song in the movie.

it’s going to take a bit of creative networking to make this happen.

however, my manager, jordan feldstien, also manages collective soul, who’s song “tremble for my beloved” was used at a very integral part of twilight. i have jordan working on it as well, so we’re attacking from both sides. =)

if you can, PLEASE HELP OUT!

here’s what you can do as often as you like, whenever you can:

1. listen to “Need”
