Guiding Light

Viva La Vida
Guiding Light by Muse describes the relationship between Liesel Meminger and Hans Hubermann. The quotes "You're my guiding light" and "I'm lost, crushed, cold and confused with no guiding light left inside" show how much Liesel relies on her 'Papa' and the second quote shows her feelings after Himmel Street is destroyed and she finds out that everyone except her is dead and she is just crushed and has no idea what to do without her Papa, her 'guiding light'.
Karma Police by Radiohead illustrates the struggle of Hans Hubermann. The quotes "Police, arrest this man" and "For a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself" relate perfectly to the life of Hans Hubermann. This shows the situation when Hans helped a starving Jew by giving him bread and then gets sent to the army as a punishment. The latter quote shows Hans' attitude towards his stupidity and the former quote shows the attitude of the general 'party members' towards Hans Hubermann.
Viva La Vida by Coldplay illustrates another part of Max Vandenburg's losses. This is seen in the quotes "I used to rule the world", "Now in the morning I sleep alone", and "One minute I held the key, next the walls were closed on me"; all of these quotes show how Max was a successful fighter and he had all that he wanted (in fighting) and the next minute he is in a shelter by himself and after that he is alone, hiding in the basement of a friendly family.
Solitude
Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day illustrates the predicament of Max Vandenburg and the general mood that surrounds him. This is best illustrated by the quote "I walk a lonely road the only one that I have ever known, don't know where it goes" which shows that Max is by himself in the basement (and in this situation) without anyone there with him. Also, Max does not know what is going to happen to him but he keeps on living and "walking down that road".
Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Scar Tissue
Scar Tissue by Red Hot Chili Peppers illustrates the amount of pain that is felt by Liesel Meminger and the fact that she is not allowed to share this pain with any of her friends (even Rudy). This is best illustrated by the quote "scar tissue that I wish you saw" which fits perfectly with the general inner struggle of Liesel Meminger (she has a secret that she is not allowed to tell anyone).
The Book Thief
Snow (Hey Oh)
Snow (Hey Oh) by Red Hot Chili Peppers shows one of the happiest moments in the book. The quote "Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder , where it's so white as snow, privately divided by a world so undecided and there's no where to go" shows the happiness that Max and Liesel and Hans and Rosa felt when Liesel brought some snow into the basement to make max feel less alone. Also, the quote shows how at that moment nothing else mattered to them and it felt as if it was a completely different world, a world that wasn't so sad.
