Transcript of The Outsiders Soundtrack

Scene #2: Train to Windrixville In this scene, because Johnny killed a Soc to save Ponyboy, they are now fleeing to an abandoned church in Windrixville under Dally's advice. Johnny and Ponyboy are doing what they think is best to get to safety (if Johnny is caught, he will get the electric chair). The song "Safe and Sound" fits this scene in my opinion because it is a calm song about just closing your eyes and waiting for the morning light when everything will be brighter and better. This song is also a lullaby, which is fitting for this scene because Ponyboy falls asleep on Johnny's lap. Come morning light, they are hoping to be "safe and sound." Scene #1: Ponyboy's Walk Home In this opening scene, Ponyboy is walking home from the movies alone, which is not a smart idea for a Greaser like Ponyboy. Ponyboy is explaining the divisions between the poorer East Side group, the Greasers, and the snobby West Side group, the Socs. Socs jump Greasers for fun, so it's bad news when Ponyboy spots a red Corvair full of Socs trailing him. Five Socs jump out of the car and beat up Ponyboy until his gang shows up to drive the Socs away. The Greasers hate the Socs, probably out of jealously of the Socs care-free lives. I think the song “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster The People defines some of the feelings of jealously and hatred that Greasers have for the Socs. According to the band's lead, Mark Foster, this song was written to come from the mind of an isolated social outcast who wants revenge on the people he envies. The Gang Scene #3: Sunrise In this vividly-painted scene, Ponyboy and Johnny are watching a majestic sunrise on the back steps of the abandoned church in Windrixville. "Clocks" perfectly fits this setting in that the melody of this song is amazingly uplifting and joyful. A sunrise symbolizes a bright new day full of life and opportunity, and that is exactly the kind of scene I picture in my head when I hear the song "Clocks." Also, this song's lyrics mention ticking clocks (as in time), which reminds me of Robert Frost's poetic words recited by Ponyboy after witnessing this breathtaking sunrise, "Nothing gold can stay." Scene #4: The Rumble The entire scene of the rumble, from when the gang is doing flips towards the lot where the rumble will take place to when the Socs run from the Greasers, is very upbeat and intense. I definitely think Fall Out Boy's "My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark" is upbeat and intense too, so it is a fitting song for the rumble between the Socs and Greasers. This is a pump-up song, and the Greasers were obviously excited and ready for the rumble. The song lyrics, "Light 'em up" and "I'm on fire," give an idea of just how fired up the Greasers must have been before and after winning the rumble against their biggest rivals. Scene #5: The Brothers Make a Pact In this touching scene towards the end of the story, Ponyboy and Darry promise each other to stop fighting after Soda tells them both how it feels like they are pulling him apart when they fight. Soda tells his brothers that although he sees both of their sides, they have to get along because all they have left is each other. According to Soda, without each other, they do not have anything, and you end up like Dallas Winston before he died if you don't have anything. The main reason I chose "Lean On Me" is because I think Soda's feeling that without each other, they don't have anything is similar to the song lyric, "We all need somebody to lean on," meaning no one can do it all without the help of their brothers (whether by blood or not).

The Civil Wars Song: Clocks by Coldplay Song: My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark (Light 'Em Up) by Fall Out Boy Song: Lean On Me by Michael Bolten Scene #6: Johnny's Letter In this closing scene, Ponyboy finds the letter Johnny wrote him in the hospital. Johnny gives Ponyboy closure by telling him that losing his life was worth saving those kids. Johnny tells Ponyboy to stay gold, and that he has a lot of time to make what he wants of his life. He even tells Ponyboy to tell Dally about the good in the world. Ponyboy then starts thinking about these friends, but in a general way. He realizes that others are experiencing similar issues today, and people need to know that. He decides to write his English composition about this entire experience (which ends up being the very book, "The Outsiders"). The song "I Lived" is a song about not letting struggles hold you back, and being able to say that you "owned every second that this world could give." Song: I Lived by OneRepublic The End :)
