How to Be: Songs in order of the movie

Robert Pattinson as Art in How to Be

Robert Pattinson as Art in How to Be. The layers make the man.

I know this is sort of random, but I put the songs from Robert Pattinson’s movie, How to Be (2008), in the order they appear in the film. There is a spoiler-free list followed by a list describing where the song appears in the film.  All songs appear on the soundtrack of How To Be, except where noted.

Of course, we have the same list for Twilight and New Moon, if you want to check it out.

If you’re a huge Rob Pattinson fan, such as moi, you should check out How to Be. As an American, I describe it as very “British.” Rob is excellent in it and his character is as far from Edward Cullen as vampire-ly possible 😀

    Melissa,
    I too enjoyed this movie and found it to be very “British”, which is OK with me because I’m a huge fan of British humor (Monty Python, Ab Fab, the Young Ones!!!). I liked watching “awkward and funny” Rob. It was quite a departure from the “serious and brooding” Rob that we get in Twilight.

    I saw the film when it was available to rent on OnDemand a few months back, but might rent it again now that it’s available for general release!

    I would like to hear an album or recordings of Robert Pattinson and his music. I did enjoy the movie How to Be very much. Robert Pattinson seemed quite at ease with the other actors, director, etc. Much more relaxed indeed.! I want to see much more of Robert Pattinson in the future and it looks as thought I’m going to get what I want (big smiles)!!!
