TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD SOUNDTRACK
Transcript of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD SOUNDTRACK
Fall Out Boy - You're Crashing But You're No Wave
This song relates to To Kill A Mockingbird because it's about a innocent man being sentenced to death by hanging just like Tom Robinson in his trial.
The Almost - Say This Sooner
I believe that this song relates most to Boo Radley. Although this song can be interpreted different ways, I view it rather sarcastically. When Aaron Gillespie sings, "I'll get to speaking, let you know how I feel, I'll get to judging, make you see my appeal," I think of how the townspeople speak so cruelly about Boo although none of them had taken the time to get to know him. It later goes on to say, "All my
Avicii - Wake Me Up
This song reminds me a lot of Jem because it's about his realizations of himself. In the chorus, "All the time I was finding myself, and I didn't know I was lost," is said and just like these words, Jem finds out more and more about himself and his community after Tom Robinson's trial. He learned that not all people are hair and there are some really shady people in this world.
Black Eyed Peas- Where is the Love
This song is connected to
To Kill A Mockingbird
because the lyrics describe the problems with our society, hence the line "What's wrong with the world, mama?"
They also say, "But if you only have love for ya own race, then you only leave space to discriminate," and this is directly related to one of the events in this novel- Tom Robinson's unfair trial. This all-white jury found an innocent Tom Robinson guilty all because he was black and they couldn't look past his skin color.
friends think that I'm gone," and all of the people of Maycomb County believe that he's crazy.
Christina Aguilera - Bobblehead
To Kill A Mockingbird
, Mayella accuses Tom Robinson of rape and assault. Mayella's marks were on the right side of her face, indicating her attacker was left-handed, but Tom's left side was immobile from an accident he had when he was younger. In Christina's song she says, "Why oh why pretend? I know you got a brain why don't cha use it? ... If you're so smart why you act brain dead?" and during Mayella's case, when she's being asked questions she wasn't prepared to answer, she gets hysterical and claims to not remember clearly.
John Mayer - Waiting on the World to Change
This song talks about how powerless he and his friends feel against the system, but describes the hope that he feels toward its change. This connects to Atticus because although Atticus is a very well-respected lawyer, he doesn't have the power to change the laws or the societal thinking of what's right and what's wrong. He just hopes that one day things will be different.
Dion & The Belmonts - Runaround Sue
This song reminds me of Mayella because this song describes the troubles this man runs into when he meets a certain woman. He says to "keep away from a runaround Sue" because she causes heartache. And when Mayella turns against Tom, she hurt him in the worst way possible.
Michael Jackson - They Don't Care About Us
This song describes individual power and standing up for yourself against the evil in this world. Michael sings, "Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now I'm tired of bein' the victim of shame," and this describes the black community as a whole and the struggles they face every day when they live in a place with white people who believe they are superior to those of color. It also reminds me of the Cunningham's and how the people of Maycomb County think of them as low-class for the way they live their lives.
Journey - Anyway You Want It
To Kill A Mockingbird
, Aunt Alexandra pressures Scout to be more of a girl. She wants Scout to grow up sophisticated and feminine as opposed to the tomboy she had become from growing up with Jem and Dill. Aunt Alexandra doesn't like not getting her way.
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers -
This song reminds me of Scout because she's tough, especially for a young girl. She grew up hanging out with boys and so she had to devlop a thick skin in order to prove she as "worthy" to hang out with and be one of the boys. She also witness a lot at a young age and she used those events to strengthen herself.
