Sooo, I finally watched Breaking Dawn (bootlegged it). It was awful, but I’m glad I saw it. Robert Pattinson is a good actor and Kristen Stewart does Bella justice. I have read all the books and they are a shameful, guilty pleasure (with predictable plots, angst, chastity, and the fainting/crying of a weak female character). The movie has some nice moments surrounded by two hours of terribleness that seems like it could have been easily fixed/made better.
Later, I was looking at the soundtracks for the films (which are suprisingly indie and interesting) and I saw that Robert Pattinson had sung a song on one of the soundtracks. His voice is a little bluesy and a lot mumbley, but I like it. Anyway, long story short, here are some recordings of him singing:
Robert Pattinson – Let Me Sign (written by Marcus Foster and Bobby Long)
Robert Pattinson – Never Think
Robert Pattinson also sings a cover of “I was Broken,” orginially by his friend and Mumford and Sons’ protege (and record label companion), Marcus Foster.
Robert Pattinson – I Was Broken
This is Marcus Foster’s version. Look who is in the video!
Marcus Foster – I Was Broken
I like both versions. Can’t choose between them. They are also friends/fans of Bobby Long, who I first heard on WTMD.
Bobby Long – Who Have You Been Loving
Wow. Googling Robert Pattinson makes me feel bad for the guy. His life is well stalked. I think he may have gone to school with some of these people. Idk.
Here is Marcus Foster and Bobby Long in a duet.
Marcus Foster and Bobby Long – Crooked Sky
Oh snap, there’s another bro in the group: Sam Bradley. I looked at his stuff and it was a little too…mellow? for my taste. But here is a duet with Marcus Foster (this song demands harmonies!):
Marcus Foster and Sam Bradley – I Was Broken
British guys can sing! Btw, Happy New Year!
