Good news, Twihards: Any of these indie-pop songs could be the first dance at your wedding. From the twinkling church bells of Passion Pit’s “Where I Come From” to the Pachabel-inspired violins of Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years (Part 2)”—which sounds exactly like the first “A Thousand Years,” except it’s about 500 years longer—there’s one grand-ballroom epic after another.

The mood mostly ranges from ethereal (Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark star Reeve Carney’s “New For You”) to even more ethereal (Ellie Goulding’s “Bittersweet”), but the lovesick vibe only reaches “yuck” level twice: once, when the Boom Circuits serenade “an angel learning how to fly” on the excruciatingly twee “Everything and Nothing,” and again when Twilight actress Nikki Reed harmonizes with her real-life husband, American Idol alum Paul McDonald, on the get-a-room ballad “All I’ve Ever Needed.”

Good thing St Vincent and Green Day drop by to rough things up a bit.The former’s Annie Clark might have the best song on the album with “Antidote,” a sludge-rock anthem that pokes fun at vampire lore. (“I’ll show you where it really hurts,” she coos.) And the latter’s Billie Joe Armstrong manages to turn a stately piano ballad into an awesomely bitter love song. “Where in the world did the time go?” he wonders. Poor Edward Cullen. It’s tough to be 17 for 94 years. B
