The Twilight Saga's Five Best Musical Moments
Come Friday -- or Thursday for the real Twi-Hards -- it's all coming to an end. That's right, the vampire love story that captured the undivided attention of teenage girls and grown women, making their kids late for school, hair unwashed, dogs unwalked, wraps up in the final installment of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II.

But before we close the chapter on Edward and Bella, we're going to take a look back at the five best musical moments from these classic vamp-romance films. Because even if you didn't like the Cullen clan, you can't deny that those soundtracks were damn good.
5. "Turning Page" - Sleeping at Last
This was the moment all the Twi-hards were waiting for: The wedding between Edward and Bella. Now they could finally mate according to Mormon propriety. As Bella walked down the aisle, the instrumental version of the song plays while the room of Twi-hards freaks out over every inch of her dress. An honorable mention goes to the song "Fightless Bird, American Mouth" by former Miami-guy Iron and Wine that is heard during the wedding kiss.
4."My Love" - Sia
Poor Bella, all she wants to do is get down and dirty with her red-eyed boyfriend. To the lovely sound of Sia's voice, she's turned down, again. Quite possibly one of hottest and most disappointing moments during Eclipse.
3. "Fightless Bird, American Mouth" - Iron & Wine
Their first dance at prom is accompanied by the sounds of Iron and Wine. Does a high school moment get any more perfect than that? And all she can think about is being turned into a vampire... Sigh, silly human.
2. "Possibility" - Lykke Li
In New Moon, Edward has just left Bella and she spends months as a hermit. We watch the seasons pass as the heartbroken teenager falls deeper into depression. Set to Lykke Li's hauntingly sweet voice, you can't help but get all choked up. Break-ups are hard to do, especially when your beloved is immortal and you're a future cheater.
1. "Love, Death, Birth" - Carter Burwell
Finally, Bella, finally! She gets what she wants, immortality! And all because of that monstrous half-vampire, half-human daughter growing inside of her. Following a somewhat disturbing birth scene that included Edward eating the baby out of her, Bella spends the last part of Breaking Dawn: Part I laying on table before revealing her new blood red eyes. Rejoice Twi-hards! She's a vampire!
