Twilight – New Moon tops 2009 Soundtrack charts

It was somewhat unexpected and at first the rumours seemed unlikely to be confirmed when Thom Yorke was named to be included for the soundtrack of The Twilight Saga: New Moon. At least it brought the Radiohead frontman good sales and recognition.

Thom Yorke contributed to the soundtrack of the teen blockbuster movie with new track ‘Hearing Damage’. The soundtrack, released on October 16, debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 albums chart and hit number one a week later with 153,000 copies sold. The album also features songs by Grizzly Bear, Lykke Li, the Killers, Death Cab For Cutie, Bon Iver and St. Vincent.

Film.com listed the soundtrack at #10 in their Best Soundtracks of the Year. In sales it was the top selling soundtrack of the year and also number one in digital sales. In the overall album list of 2009 it reached the 4th spot.

  • A tear in my brain
    Allows the voices in
    They wanna push you off the path
    With their frequency wires

  • Honestly this track is pretty mediocre. This thing has like no melody

    Come on Thom you can do better than this

  • Well done for posting the wrong lyrics, pantrus touching base.

  • what !? really ? i keep listening to the song and i still hear those lyrics . . . perhaps my hearing damage ?

    anyway . . . i don t think its the best song in the world but as i always say . . . if that is a mediocre song . . . wow . . . what its left for the other music around the world _shit_you guys are so demanding _same story as usual _anyway_ i really thought the lyrics [ at least what i posted ] were already great enough to justified the song . . . too clubby for my likes so what ? ! i still enjoy it a lot _ there s something missing in this world . . . people enjoying things or music or places without having to be bitching all the time _ have you guys [ the ones complaining all the time ] tried having better sex in your life _perhaps that can help ?

  • @pantrus touching base

    a tear in what brain? what wires?

    clearly what he sings is:

    a tear in the membrane allows the voices in
    they want to push you off the path with their low frequency winding

    great track…i hope there’s more whether this one came from.

  • i love this track, yes it’s strange that its on twilight..but still..beautiful song!!!

  • hmmm clearly . . .

    clearly can be different for you and me . . . it depends on our background and where we come from and the experiences we had in life . . . what might be clear for you might be blurred to me and vice-versa . . .

    sorry if i messed up . . . my bad . . . i still love the lyrics . . .

  • Although kinda wierd and suprising he contributed to it….its an awesome song….great vocal and melody…and wicked bass….plus if its means more money and freedom for the man to make whatever he wants…why not…

  • that song is mega dope
    i don’t know what people are complaining about

  • it’s very ‘…twisted words’ isnt it. a hint of eraser too. it has that haunting quality that thom loves so much
