Twilight Soundtrack Climbs to No. 3

From EOnline: The Twilight soundtrack is officially undead—thanks in part to Robert Pattinson's singing debut.

The new deluxe version of the soundtrack, timed to the film's weekend DVD release and featuring Count Cullen's first recording effort, clawed its way back up the charts.

Yes, girls, he can croon, too.

Twilight shot up 11 spots to No. 3 with 74,000 in sales—a whopping 250 percent sales increase—trailing only Kelly Clarkson's All I Ever Wanted (No. 1; 90,000) and U2's No Line on the Horizon (No. 2; 76,000), per Nielsen SoundScan.

The new double-disc Twilight package features five new songs, including the single "Spotlight" by Mute Math, an acoustic version of Paramore's "Decode" and Pattinson's "Never Think." A bonus DVD features interviews, music videos and live performances.

The soundtrack has sold more than 1.5 million copies to date. The Twilight movie DVD sold 3 million copies its first day of release.

Anyone knows how to get that second song by Pattinson that was in Bella's death scene "Let Me Sign"? I was so disappointed that it didn't make into the soundtrack or the score CDs...
