Heavy in Your Arms (4:46)

Cover of Lungs

From Lungs and 11 other releases

Florence Welch explained to the Independent why she wanted to be involved in writing for the soundtrack (Source Heavy in Your Arms Songfacts). “I thought it would be something fun to do; I’d never written a song for a soundtrack before. It’s an interesting exercise as a songwriter. You’re thinking about it more in a visual tone and imagining a film score, which I think is really exciting.

They didn’t specifically say what bit of the movie it was going to be in or anything, but they did say it should have nothing about vampires or werewolves in it. I don’t think they wanted anything with specific references to the story; it’s not a musical, opera type thing – they just wanted something that fitted the emotional tone of it. I just thought about some of the themes in the book and wrote the song.”

    “Too good for Twilight”? I don’t know how to gauge this. Is it too good for “The Godfather”, or “Citizen Kane”, or “Dirty Dancing”, or “Jaws” or etc…….? Is there somewhere where this is listed? I would be interested to know more.

    I never really listened to this song because I knew it was used in Twilight. However, I just loved it right now. All I'm really trying to say is [this song is] too good for Twilight! [163]
