We can hardly keep up with all the exciting Breaking Dawn developments coming up this week. After watching new clips, catching the premiere of Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years” and reading new interviews with Rob and Kristen about their sex scenes, we have something else for the Twi-hards today, via VH1’s Breaking Dawn Soundtrack Posted: The premiere of Iron & Wine‘s video for “Flightless Bird, American Mouth (Wedding Version).” And while the clip is all about the bearded band’s time in the studio, the song itself makes us conjure up visions of Bella and Edward floating through Alice’s Midsummer Night’s Dream wedding wonderland.
According to the book, Bella walks down the aisle to the traditional Wagner wedding march, so we don’t think this tune will be the processional for the big day. The soundtrack’s version of “Flightless Bird” is a wistful waltz, with lyrics that don’t really apply to the story (“Now I’m a fat house cat/ Nursing my sore blunt tongue/ Watching the warm poison rats curl through the wide fence cracks/ Pissing on magazine photos”). But its melancholy, questioning mood brings to mind a few different scenes from the wedding. We picked out a few.
