"It's Only A Paper Moon" recorded by various artists, is one of the songs that plays during the secene where the narrator proclaims that with out his/her love nothing seem real, out of a lovers arm, the world is a temporary parking place. Music Varsouviana Polka plays in Blache's head when she thinks of her deceased husband (Allen Grey) Blanche told Allen that he disgusted her while they went out dancing,because he slept with another man. Allen quickly ran off and shot himself. Through out the play Blache will hear this song when she begins to lose her grip. The louder Stanley gets on inisting on the unenicable facts about Blanche, the louder the song gets. This is a symbolic meaning of the of their two philosophies.
