Anya Marina "Whatever you like" (video) Twilght New Moon song "Satellite heart"

The internet is buzzing over Anya Marina's cover of "Whatever you like" by T.I. Many music fans are discovering this song for the very first time.

Listen to Anya Marina's "Whatever you like" below and tell us what you think. Do you like her version better than T.I's.?

Anya Marina song "Satellite heart" is on the Twilight New Moon soundtrack.

Anya Marina was picked to record a song for the Twilight soundtrack after director Chris Weitz heard her cover of "Whatever you like".

Marina posted a blog on Myspace expressing her excitement over being included on the Twilight New Moon soundtrack.

Hello friends!
 

A few months ago, I was asked by Chris Weitz (the director of the new Twilight movie (New Moon) to come in to his office to screen the latest Twilight movie, NEW MOON. I guess he'd heard my cover of T.I.'s "Whatever You Like" and really liked it. Naturally, I was thrilled. I heard all sorts of my favorite bands were being considered for the soundtrack (Thom Yorke, Death Cab, Grizzly Bear, etc). In fact, on the day of my own private screening, as I walked in, The Killers were making their way out.
 

oh.
em.
gee.

Suffice it to say, the movie was great and I got really inspired to adapt a new song I'd been working on to suit Bella and Edward and their whole drama. I got together with my friend, producer [and mixer on Slow & Steady...] Ken Andrews, and we recorded a pretty mean version of a new song called "Satellite Heart."
When I heard that Chris decided not only to include "Satellite Heart" in my favorite scene in New Moon, but also in the soundtrack, I was - pardon the pun - over the moon. I can't wait to see it in the movie or for you to hear some of the straight-up sick remixes that'll be coming out soon, too. For now, stream the song (and check out the lyrics) on MySpace, and then pre-order the soundtrack through iTunes to be able to download "Satellite Heart" instantly.
 
Enjoy. See you in November!

Lyrics to Satellite heart" by Anya Marina

So pretty/so smart
Such a waste of a young heart!
What a pity / what a sham
What's the matter with you, man?

Don't you see it’s wrong/ can't you get it right?
Out of mind and outta sight
Call on all your girls, don't forget the boys
Put a lid on all that noise!

You can find the complete lyrics on the Atlantic records website
