Stephenie Meyer and Paramore

By Jonathan McNamara

Fans of the Twilight Series likely have this track on heavy rotation on their iPods, but we mere mortals might be interested to know that the song "Decode" by Paramore from the upcoming film adaptation of Twilight is currently available for a listen on Stephenie Meyer's Web site.

Paramore vocalist Hayley Williams had the plot of the first book in mind when she penned this piece. According to the singer as quoted on Stephenie Meyer's site, " I chose the title 'Decode' because the song is about the building tension, awkwardness, anger and confusion between Bella and Edward. Bella's is the only mind Edward can't read and I feel like that's a big part of the first book and one of the obstacles for them to overcome."
