New Moon deconstructs “serious music”.

I watched New Moon last night. When a Bon Iver & St Vincent duet soundtracks the scene right before Edward leaves Bella, Lykke Li soundtracks a scene where Bella feels devastated because Edward left her, and Thom Yorke soundtracks a werewolf/vampire fight it creates a deconstruction of the idea that any music, even “serious music”, is truly on a higher credibility level. And, I like that.
