Good news, Twihards: Any of these songs could be the first dance at your Twedding. From Passion Pit's church-bell ringer ''Where I Come From'' to Christina Perri's violin-strung ''A Thousand Years (Part 2),'' there's one grand-ballroom epic after another in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 Soundtrack, ranging from ethereal (''Bittersweet'' from Ellie Goulding, above) to awesomely sludgy (St. Vincent's ''The Antidote''). The lovesick vibe reaches ''yuck'' level only twice: when Twilight actress Nikki Reed harmonizes with her real-life husband, Paul McDonald (''All I've Ever Needed''), and when the Boom Circuits serenade ''an angel learning howto fly'' (''Everything and Nothing''). But Green Day add some necessary bitterness on ''The Forgotten'': ''Where in the world did the time go?'' Billie Joe Armstrong (above) snarls. Poor Edward Cullen — it's tough to be 17 for 94 years.
