Death Cab for Cutie is Team Jacob + Talks Inspiration for 'Meet Me on the Equinox'

Chris Walla is Team Jacob!

Death Cab for Cutie talks to MTV about their inspiration for Meet me on the Equinox:

The inspiration behind the tune is drawn more from Gibbard's own life rather than the lives of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, he explained.

"The song at its core is just about meeting another halfway, because life is very short, because there's only a brief period of time to really connect with people, and that it's important to recognize that," Gibbard said. "I haven't read all of the 'Twilight' books, but I know a bit about them, and I think the song is really based on tones of the series.

"Like, I think it would've been really easy to write a song that was like a book report, and I've always kind of disliked book report songs, even though I'm guilty of a couple myself over the years," he continued. "I just wanted something that kind of tonally matched the story and the scenes within the film, so they could kind of be put alongside but not be telling a narrative you're watching on the screen."

  1. Love how all these ppl that are a part of the this great/huge franchise- have never read the series or only have read a few of the books. Yet some how understand the story and bring great things to the movies for us fans!
    LOL - Edward was an asshole and Jacob is the hero!! Jacob did save our beloved Bella- at least temporarily:))

  2. victory! Lol
    Go team Jacob!!!

  3. Edward WAS an asshole! lol

  4. Anoymous Team Jacob; Victory??? Obviously you have not read the whole saga: Bella picks Edward....

  5. I would say Jacob is also an asshole and a bigger one at that. He hurt Bella two or three times in this saga where as Edward only did it once.
