The Twilight Soundtrack Soars Again

The Twilight soundtrack jumped back into the number 3 position on the Billboard 200 charts. It was languishing in the bottom of the top 20 but it has surged again. Why? We know why but here is a nice quote from EW:

"First, a special edition of the soundtrack came out, with bonus goodies including a live clip of that one Iron & Wine song, the music video for Paramore's "Decode," an interview with Paramore singer Hayley Williams, and, er, a "Beyond the Video" clip for Paramore's "Decode." Oh, and Twilight the movie came out on DVD over the weekend. Those two factors combined were enough to persuade 74,000 fans to buy the soundtrack for the first, second, or Nth time, according to Nielsen SoundScan, beating out everyone else last week but Kelly Clarkson (at No. 1 with 90,000) and U2 (at No. 2)."
