Twilight “Eclipse” soundtrack debuts at #2 on Billboard Top 200

By Kim Palacios

HollywoodNews.com: Though Reuters predicted that “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” soundtrack would enter the Billboard Top 200 at #1, it was bested by “Journey to Regionals”, the latest release from “Glee”. Also competing for top debuting album last week was Christina Aguilera’s “Bionic”. The artist’s first studio release in four years came in at a predicted third.

It is no surprise that “Glee” albums have done so well, considering that all its songs are covers. Mega-hits like Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” and “Over the Rainbow” have been proven many times over. Whereas the Twilight soundtracks must convince listeners to take a chance on unknown bands and develop an ear for unknown singles, the “Glee” albums invoke the cardinal rule of the entertainment industry: what sells the most are the things that are tried and true.

The “Glee” album had other things going for it, like its lower cost. With only six tracks, it is appropriately priced at $6.98. Though deeply discounted on Amazon.com at $9.99 for the moment, the “Eclipse” list price of $18.98 is nearly three times more. Is it any surprise that “Glee” came out on top?
