Branching Inward songs:
Prologue: Northern Sky by Nick Drake
Chapter 1: Rollin’ and Tumblin’ Part I by Muddy Waters and Temptation by New Order. Rob would have been about 10 when this song came out, LOL.
Chapter 2: I am Part of a Large Family by Great Lake Swimmers and Help Yourself by Sad Brad Smith
Chapter 3: Love is a Stranger covered by Martha Wainwright and Tightrope by Yeasayer
Chapter 4: Sleepyhead by Passion Pit and The Orchids covered by Califone. Robert Pattinson should definitely record a cover of this gorgeous song.
Chapter 5: Ambulance by TV on the Radio. So much feeling, so tightly controlled, in this song.
Chapter 6: Can't Go Back Now by the Weepies
Chapter 7: Bloodbuzz Ohio by The National. Matt Berninger's voice is a lot like what Edward's should sound like, don't you think? and Just Like Honey by The Jesus and Mary Chain.
Chapter 8: My One Desire by Freakwater (a sample) and River by Akron/Family
Chapter 9: Colors and the Kids by Cat Power
Chapter 10: Transatlanticism by Death Cab for Cutie. Yeah, it's that kind of chapter. Photos -->(Edward's place, etc)
Chapter 11: Always Keep a Diamond in Your Mind by Tom Waits Photos--> (Inspiration for Edward's sculpture)
Chapter 12: Never Ever by Shout Out Louds and That Feel by Tom Waits and Keith Richards
Chapter 13: Love and Some Verses by Iron & Wine
Chapter 14: I Can Change by LCD Soundsystem and A Heart Needs a Home by Richard and Linda Thompson
Chapter 15: Slow Motion by Panda Bear
Chapter 16: Nothing Like This by J. Dilla
Chapter 17: Is There a Ghost by Band of Horses
Chapter 18: First Breath After Coma by Explosions in the Sky
Chapter 19: Professor Booty by the Beastie Boys
Chapter 20: Slow Show by the National
Chapter 21: The Book of Love by Magnetic Fields
Chapter 22: Sycamore by Bill Callahan (aka Smog)
Chapter 23: Spread your Love by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Chapter 24: Zebra by Beach house and, of course, When I'm Sixty-Four by the Beatles. It really does use a lot of odd instruments.
