Christina Perri has had quite the year. Her music was featured on 'So You Think You Can Dance' and 'Glee' and now, pretty much the best place a soulful rock artist can be featured, a 'Twilight' soundtrack.

The soundtrack for 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' will feature 14 tracks, including Perri's, will be available November 8th, a few weeks before the film's release.

Past 'Twilight' soundtracks have featured bands like Muse, The Killers, Death Cab For Cutie, but for the 'Jar of Hearts' singer, the inclusion is particularly exciting.

"Yes, I am 1,000 percent a 'Twilight' fan," she told MTV. "I can't even deny that I am actually, in fact, a Twihard and have a 'Twilight' tattoo. I got a tattoo on my wrist that says 'bitten,' and it's written in the font of all the book titles. So, yes, I am of one the big, geeky fans."

Noticeably absent from the listing is Muse. The band, who 'Twilight' author Stephanie Meyer has cited as a main source of inspiration in writing the books (she's even mentioned them on one of the book's dedication pages) has had tracks on all three previous albums. Could it be the band was upset their song 'Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)' was used in passing during the graduation party scene of 'Eclipse' and not in the end credits?

The Joy Formidable - 'Endtapes
Angus & Julia Stone - 'Love Will Take You'
Bruno Mars - "It Will Rain"
Sleeping at Last - 'Turning Page'
The Features - 'From Now On'
Christina Perri - 'A Thousand Years'
Theophilus London - 'Neighbors'
The Belle Brigade - 'I Didn't Mean It'
Noisettes - 'Sister Rosetta (2011 Version)'
Cider Sky - 'Northern Lights'
Iron & Wine - 'Flightless Bird, American Mouth (Wedding Version)'
Imperial Mammoth - 'Requiem on Water'
Aqualung & Lucy Schwartz - 'Cold'
Mia Maestro - 'Llovera'
Carter Burwell - 'Love Death Rebirth'

No word on where 'A Thousand Years' will play during the movie, but if you had to take a guess, which scene would you choose? If it's anything like Perri's other songs, we're thinking it could play while Bella gets ready for her wedding or maybe even during her dance with Jacob.
