Bruno Mars' swoony "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1" song, "It Will Rain," dropped Tuesday on iTunes, and in the grand Bruno and "Twilight" tradition, it's heartbreaking and sweeping.
Mr. Mars certainly joins a laundry list of A-listers like Muse, Florence & The Machine and Paramore, who all sang about the power of love for the franchise. With roughly seven weeks until the movie finally opens, we have no clue where the song will appear in the film. So here are our theories where we might here it.
Charlie Swan's made no secret of the fact that he doesn’t want Bella and Edward to spend eternity together, and lines like, "I’ll never be your mother's favorite; your daddy can’t even look me in the eye/ If I was in their shoes I'd be doing the same/ Say there goes my little girl/ Walking with that troublesome guy" would make it perfect for any pre-wedding father/daughter heart-to-heart.
Oh, Jacob Black! How Bella always breaks your heart! And when Bruno sings "Don’t you say, goodbye/ Don’t you say, goodbye/ I’ll pick up these broken pieces till I’m bleeding/ If that’ll make it right" it could be the perfect song for the dance between Bella and Jacob.
The sex scene
Okay, so the song has plenty of angst about it, but the general romantic vibe of the song may make for just the right soundtrack to Bella and Edward's bed-breaking love scene.
Bruno sings, "Cause there'll be no sunlight/ If I lose you, baby/ There'll be no clear skies/ If I lose you, baby/ And just like the clouds, my eyes will do the same/ If you walk away, everyday it'll rain," and a part of us can't help but think of Edward's pain and agony thinking he might lose Bella if she has his baby.
