To Kill A Mockingbird:The Soundtrack
Transcript of To Kill A Mockingbird:The Soundtrack
Stand By Me- Ben E.King
When Scout and Jem were walking home from the pageant, it was nighttime and they were attacked by Bob Ewell.
You're Crashing But You're No Wave-Fall Out Boy
Tom Robinson is accused of raping Mayella Ewell a white girl. Tom is taken to court and proven guilty when he is really innocent, because he is a black man in the time when Jim Crow Laws were at their prime.
Walk A Mile-Jan Nigro
If Everyone Cared- Nickelback
When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
No I won't be afraid
Oh, I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
This song fits because when they were getting attacked Boo Radley was there for them when they were afraid and he rescued them and stood by them in their time of need
1.)Walk a Mile-Jan Nigro
2.)If Everyone Cared-Nickelback
3.)Stand By Me- Ben King
4.)You're Crashing But You're No Wave-Fall Out Boy
In chapter 3 Atticus says to
Scout "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view until you climb into his skin and walk around in it."
What Atticus meant by this statement was that before we judge someone or critique their opinion we should try to see it from their standpoint.
I want to walk a mile in your shoes,
I want to walk a mile in your shoes,
I want to know what you think and what you feel,
So I really want to walk -- a mile in your shoes!
Remember the fight that we had?
Why did we both have to lose?
It's because we both walked away mad,
Instead of walking a mile in each other's shoes!
You hear how the world is a mess
Every time you turn on the news,
But all countries could have happiness,
If they'd be walking a mile in each other's shoes!
Grace Kelly- Mika
This song relates to when Atticus decides to defend Tom Robinson because Atticus took a risk by defending a black man during this time and he had to "breakaway" from what was normally done.
I gotta take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
In chapter 9 Atticus decides to defend Tom Robinson a black man who was accused of raping Mayella Ewell.
"I'm simply defending a Negro-his name's Tom Robinson
This song relates to Tom Robinson's trial because he was at his trial knowing he was innocent and the verdict was guilty.
Fresh pressed suit and tie
Unimpressed birds sing and die
Can talk my way out of anything
The foreman reads the verdict
"In the above entitled actions we find the defendant..."
Shame of all nations
What seeds do we plant in an infant's mind?
Seeds of destruction
And don't you trust their kind?
This hate is deep-rooted, get rid of the weed
Destroying the harvest
Of peace that we need
Shame of all nations
We got to live in the same neighborhood
When you take a man's life it don't mean that you're good
Same blood runs through your veins
Your hate proves you're insane
See a man's face but you can't see his heart
Don't even know him but you tear him apart
This song relates to the theme of the book because as the song says prejudice is a seed we plant, we don't come on earth having hostility against others.We as humans are are the same just different features and colors, in the book whites and blacks were prejudice against each other.
Prejudice is just one of the many themes present in To Kill A Mockingbird.
I could be wholesome
I could be loathsome
I guess I'm a little bit shy
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me without making me try?
This song relates to Scout and Aunt Alexandra's relationship because Scout was happy with herself and she didn't want to change she just wanted her aunt to accept her the way she was.
In To Kill A Mockingbird Aunt Alexandra is constantly trying to change Scout's ways and change her into a "lady."
I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you...
This song relates to Boo Radley and Scout at the end of the book because Scout tried to see it Boo's way. She realized that he was human and he had a right to be understood.
In chapter 31 after Boo Radley has rescued Scout and Jem, Scout takes Boo to her house to say goodnight to Jem then she walks him home. Scout finally tries to see things from his perspective.
This song relates to Boo Radley because if the town would've taken the time out to really put themselves in Boo's place they would have seen how it felt to be talked about and no really even knows you.
If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died
Throughout the book Boo Radley is the talk of the town. He is a misunderstood individual because he keeps himself in his house isolated from others.
"Atticus was right. One time he said you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them. Just standing on the Radley porch was enough."
“When they finally saw him, why he hadn’t done any of those things . . . Atticus, he was real nice. . . .”
“Most people are, Scout, when you finally see them.”
Thanks for watching!!!
