Transcript of Kite Runner Soundtrack

Track 5: Track 1: Track 3: Kite Runner Soundtrack Track 7: Track 8: Scene: When Sohrab cuts himself and is brought to the hospital. By: Matt Briars, Rachel Tenuta,
Hannah Burton and Samantha Bartolai Track 2: Coming Home- Diddy Dirty Money Scene: When Amir receives the call from Rahim Kahn, asking him to return to Kabul. Why: The begin of the song not only refers to returning home, but also atonement for one's mistakes. The phone call is the beginning of Amir's opportunity to redeem himself, and that's how this song talks about going home. Scene: Amir and Hassan playing together, reading books, playing in the tree, and building their friendship. We're Going To Be Friends- The White Stripes Why: This song is softer and seemingly innocent, like Amir and Hassan's friendship at the beginning of the novel. They play as normal little kids would, reading books and running around outside. The song also refers to school concepts, like the alphabet, which relates to the way in which Amir teaches Hassan words (although this is not as innocent as the song). My Body- Young the Giant Scene: When Amir is participating in the kite battle, as well as when Hassan is running for the kite. Track 4: Broken Strings- James Morrison Scene: When Amir's guilt for not telling anyone about Hassan takes over and Amir and Hassan's friendship is falling apart. Everybody- Ingrid Michaelson Scene: When Amir asks if Hassan will ever leave, because he is hopeful that if he does he will get Baba's undivided love. Track 6: (If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To- Weezer Scene: When Amir meets Soraya, and they develop mutual feelings for each other that they are at first unsure about because they are unable to express them because of cultural standards. Father and Son- Cat Stevens Scene: When Baba dies, and Amir reflects on how it will affect his own life. The Reason- Hoobastank Scene: When Amir decides he should try to rescue Sohrab from the orphanage. Track 9: How Far We've Come- Matchbox Twenty Scene: The battle between Assef and Amir over Sohrab. Dismantling Summer- The Wonder Years Track 10: I Love You and Buddha Too- Mason Jennings Track 11: Scene: When Amir decides to pray at the hospital. Track 12: Float On- Modest Mouse Scene: When Amir and Sohrab are flying kites, and the corner's of Sohrab's mouth turn up into a smile. Why: This song talks about having the will to keep fighting, even if things are tough. Both Amir and Hassan have to work hard and power through the challenges they face during the kite battle, both physically and mentally. They both have a greater prize in mind, and use it as motivation to persevere. Why: This marks the beginning of the disintegration of Amir and Hassan's relationship. Amir feels the pain of guilt, as well as the loss of their closeness, but is unable to mend what has broken for the time being. Instead, he makes no attempts to gain forgiveness and lets the friendship die. Why: Even though the feeling of this song is neither sad nor angry, it talks about each human's desire to gain love, and how it is an inevitable need. This explains why Amir frames Hassan as a thief and asks Baba if they are leaving- he only wants to gain the love his father never gave him. Why: When Amir first sees Soraya at the market, he is immediately interested. The problem is that it is not proper to just go over and talk to her, because of his culture. Instead, Soraya and Amir must hope that they like each other as much as the other person. This song talks about that uncertainty, and how the other person should "make a move" because the feelings are mutual. Why: Right before Baba dies, Amir starts to see that maybe Baba is content with the way things are. Amir must also consider how he is going to continue living without Baba. This song shows a similar situation between a father and son, where the father gives the son valuable advice. Why: Rahim Kahn tells Amir about Sohrab, Hassan's son, and how he is in a dangerous place. This gives Amir not only a reason to return to Kabul, but to begin his quest for redemption, and hopefully to atone for the information he never revealed. Through this journey, Amir hopes he can become new, and hopefully relieve himself of the burden he has been carrying, like the one the song refers to. Why: Amir has changed a lot since the last time he encountered Assef, and has become more courageous and more willing to stand up to him. Amir has also developed his morals, by showing that he is willing to fight for Sohrab, rather than stand by and keep himself safe from harm. This song talks about how in a time where everything seems like it's falling apart, a person's change in character can become apparent. Why: When Sohrab tries to kill himself, this is the first real physical evidence of the pain and trauma that he has gone through. Because of this attempt, both Amir and Sohrab go through emotional turmoil. This song talks about realizing that you are going through an emotional battle, and particularly refers to being in a hospital, like Sohrab was. Why: When Amir starts praying at the hospital, it shows a re-connection with his religious beliefs. In the past, Amir had been taught conflicting ideas concerning his religion, but in the end realizes that he can always fall back on it, whether he chooses one belief or the other. This song talks about how the religion you choose is not as important as the choice you make when you decide to practice a religion. Why: At the end of the novel, Amir realizes that recovering from everything that happened and finding redemption takes time. In the mean time, life will continue to move on and slowly improve if he takes it one step at a time. Just like this song says, everything will end up OK, because life keeps moving on.
