Playlistin': Top 5 Vampire (Team Edward) Lyrics

Today's the big day all you Twi-hards have been waiting for— Twilight: Breaking Dawn (Pt. 1) is officially in theatres! If you're on Team Edward and can't get enough of those cunning, mysterious beings we call vampires, then this is the playlist for you. We're counting down the top 5 lyrics that name drop your fave creature of the night:


5. Nicki Minaj - Moment 4 Life


"And yes I call the shots, I am the umpire / I sprinkle holy water, upon the vampire (vampire)"

 
We're hoping that Nicki isn't referring to the one and only Edward Cullen — we know you're thinking the same thing! Holy water, like garlic or a wooden steak, is just another way to defeat a vampire. Maybe she's talking about the Volturi clan? 


4. Lady Gaga - Dance In The Dark


"Run, run her kiss is a vampire grin / The moon lights away while she's howlin' at him"

Lady Gaga's lyrics have the potential to be about dear old Bella Swan. The love triangle between her, Edward, and Jacob are represented in the line above. Her kiss with Edward vs. her lust for Jacob? We think Gaga planned this...  


3. Timbaland - Morning After


"Maybe we can start a riot, maybe we can run this town / Maybe I'll be your vampire, we could figure it out"

Timbaland is offering himself to be your Edward Cullen in his lyrics for "Morning After Dark". Sure, he may not have the hair, the clothes, the sparkly skin but: Tim's a fun-loving guy and, unlike Edward, might be able to make you LOL! 


2. Tom Petty - Free Fallin'


"All the vampires walkin' through the valley / Move west down Ventura Blvd" 

Here's a classic tune that name drops vampires by Tom Petty. The Twilight saga wasn't even born yet when this song came out, but maybe these lyrics were a premonition for the upcoming gangs of vampires that Twilight writer Stefenie Meyer created? Hmm...


1. Monster - Kanye West ft. Bon Iver, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross


"Love, I don't get enough of it / All I get are these vampires and blood suckers" 

 Jay-Z's line in Kanye's "Monster" sounds a lot like what Bella went through throughout the Twilight series. Since she's a human and Edward's a vampire, their love was looked down upon by the other Twilight vampires. Who knew Jay-Z was a Twilight fan?
