"Happy" - By Pharrell Williams
Theme: Death Affects Everyone
"9,999,999 Tears to Go" - By Dickey Lee
Because I'm happy. Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof. Because I'm happy. Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth. Because I'm happy. Clap along if you know what happiness is to you. Because I'm happy. Clap along if you feel like that's what you want to do.
I chose this song because and these specific lyrics illustrate Two-Bit's attitude. Two-Bit is a laid back and cheerful character. He is constantly talking and "smarting off" to others. He is supportive to others and is just the guy you would most likely hang out with in the book. The song tells us to be happy when you're down and Two-Bit would agree. He is always keeping Pony and Johnny's spirits up. Even if the mood of the story is grim, Two-Bit's still cracking jokes.Two-Bit's idea of happiness is to shoplift and smart off to the cops. If Two-Bit heard this song, he'd be clapping to it all day.
My heart is cold. My body is glass. C'mon baby can't you see? I don't need no GPS to show me where to go. But I can turn into the North Pole, and show you what is cold. I don't need no sympathy. I won't cry and whine.
, Dallas Winston is the stereotypical figure of a greaser and criminal as noted by Cherry. He was tougher than anyone in Pony's gang. Dallas has had a vast criminal record from his arrest at age ten in New York. Dallas even said that jail hardened him. In the book, Pony tells us that Dallas could do anything, go everywhere, and get everything he ever wanted. This song reflects off of Dally's life. It's even as if Dally wrote the song to show us his bitterness and anger to the world. The thing that stood out to me in the song was, "My heart is cold. My body is glass." Dally's years in jail has hardened both his heart and body to the point where nothing could change him.
Can we go back, this is the moment.
Tonight is the night, we'll fight 'til it's over.
So we put our hands up.
Like the ceiling can't hold us.
Like the ceiling can't hold us.
I chose this song because it aligns with the mood when the greasers are about to battle it out with the Socs - climatic and lively. It's been leading up to this point and we will come out victorious. The song illustrates this exceptionally well. The greasers are so determined to win, and nothing can stop them to fight. It's the fiercest rumble between the greasers and Socs. The mood gets extremely tense when Darry and Paul, each the more powerful of their respective groups, meet to face off on page 142. When it seems like the greasers were about to lose, the tables are turned.
That's when the first tear came falling from my eyes.
I'm beginning to feel the pain seeing nothing but cloudy skies.
Got nine million, nine hundred, ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred ninety-nine tears to go.
And then, I don't know if I'll be over you.
