what kind of popular/modern music do you think the cullens would be into today? basically any singers/bands that rose to fame during the 2000s or earlier. thanks, panlight!
Oh this is hard.
I sort of imagine that Esme likes Michael Buble. He’s kind of a classic crooner in the style of Sinatra and I think that appeals to her. Like he’s modern but with a classic edge which is kind of how I see Esme.
Edward apparently likes Muse and Linkin Park in canon, so there’s that? A friend of my also suggested Coldplay, and that he’d like musical scores from movies and really admire some of those composers.
I can see Alice liking pop, especially pop that comes with a spectacle. Probably thinks Lady Gaga is a crazy genius. Katy Perry. She likes what’s new and trendy so I think she probably is the most up to date with pop music.
I think Emmett but be the only one into rap but I know next to nothing about rap so I can’t say who he might specifically like or dislike.
I don’t know about Rosalie. I sort of see her more into the 90s angry girl scene than anything out right now? Alice might be able to convince her to go to concerts with her sometimes but I don’t think she’d as into it as Alice is.
Jasper’s a total mystery. Maybe country or rock but again I don’t know much about those genres so I can’t say specifically.
Carlisle I feel like is usually a few years behind everyone because like, he’s been around so long he doesn’t jump on bandwagons, he sort of waits to see what has staying power before checking it out. I don’t think he (at this point) likes anything that’s purely synth or overly produced, I think he appreciates like, actual instruments and actual singing (no auto-tune). And lyrics. Meaningful lyrics. I mean when you think about the symphonies and operas he must have seen in Europe (and that he remembers perfectly), it’s probably hard for “All About that Bass” to really measure up, you know? I could see him appreciating like, Billy Joel or something?
