Scene: While hunting, Edward keeps obsessing over Bella, wondering why she turned down all the human boys who asked her to the upcoming dance.
Why it fits: While this song could also fit with the famous “I’m your brand of heroin” line later on, this is the scene where Edward realizes he loves Bella, and thus requires Lana’s operatic, depressive stylings.
