Chasing Twilight Playlist Contest (Round 1)

We have to have a play list for our virtual road trip.

Have. To.

This contest is a little different than the other contests, as it will go all month long.

Also, it will not earn you points or get you into the Daily Prize or Grand Prize drawings.

However, by participating, you WILL be entered into a drawing for a Chasing Twilight CD.

I've created a Chasing Twilight playlist. You can see it at the bottom of this post or at the very bottom center of my blog. I've got one song on it—Total Eclipse of the Heart—just to get it started. But we need more songs.

We want songs that make you think of the Twilight Saga. All types of music are okay. BUT they CANNOT be songs that are:
We want new stuff. Other than that, anything goes.

Details for Round 1:
  • Post song suggestions in the comments section by midnight on June 15th.

  • Please include the song title AND the performer's name.

  • You can post as many songs as you want in the same comment.

  • Everyone who suggests a song gets entered into a drawing for a copy of the Chasing Twilight CD. One entry per song.

  • We'll add every suggested song to the playlist below (assuming we can find them on

  • On June 16th, we'll post a list of all suggested songs, with a link to vote for your favorites. The 10 songs with the most votes will move on to Round 2.

Details for Round 2:
  • If your song makes the cut to Round 2, you'll be entered into a drawing for a copy of the Chasing Twilight CD.

  • Somewhere around June 25th, we'll start the voting for the Theme Song from the top 10 songs.

Details for Round 3:
  • At the end of the Chasing Twilight Contest, we'll announce the Theme Song—the song that got the most votes.

  • If your song is chosen as our Chasing Twilight Theme Song, you'll win a copy of the Chasing Twilight CD.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to ever increasing shipping costs, to win the prize you must live in or have a ship to address in the U.S. (If you live out of the country, you're welcome to have me send it to someone stateside as a gift from you.)
