The Twilight saga will always be about the vampires, the wolves — and the music. Going back to the novels, author Stephenie Meyer made it known that tunes were essential to the creation of Edward, Bella and Jacob: “I can’t write without music,” the Muse superfan confessed. She even gave followers a look at the playlist she “heard in [her] head” while writing the first book.
