Transcript of Call Of The Wild Soundtrack

The main tone of chapter one is change and adaptability. This shows a lot in the entire chapter. The beginning takes place at Buck’s home in California. He then gets stolen by one of the housekeepers and sold to someone who sell dogs for sled teams in the North. He travels all through the western states and eventually gets on a boat and travels to Alaska. Chapter 1, Page 16 “He saw once and for all that he stood no chance against a man with a club.” The song “Start Today” by Fall Out Boy shows the tone in this chapter extremely well.

“Start Today” – Fall Out Boy

“Next time I'll try,
For the first time in my life.
It won't pass me by.
Procrastinate it can wait, I put it off.
Let's start today.
Let's start today”

The Dominant Primordial Beast
Into The Primitive
In this chapter Buck has decided he has had enough of Spitz bullying. Time and time again Spitz tries to challenge Buck for the packs dominance. Finally at the end of the chapter they are chasing a rabbit for the pack, and buck wants to catch it to be looked at as the hero. But Spitz beats him and kills the rabbit first, and then Buck hits him and starts the last fight between them. Chapter 3, Page 36, “There was no hope for him. Buck was inexorable. Mercy was a thing reserved for gentler climes.” The main tone for chapter 3 was rivalry and that applies to the song “I Will Not Bow” by Breaking Benjamin in the way that they aren’t giving up and they are fighting back.

“I Will Not Bow” – Breaking Benjamin

“I will not bow
I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall
I will not fade
I will take your breath away.”

Who Has Won To Mastership
Chapter 4 - Who Has Won To Mastership
In chapter 4 Buck has killed Spitz and when François and Perrault found out they put Sol-Leks into the lead dog position and Buck didn’t like this. He refused to be harnessed and had ran away from François when he came after Buck. This happened for an hour before François finally decided to give Buck the lead dog position and they could carry on. Chapter 4, Page 38 “… Buck trotted in, laughing triumphantly, and swung around into position at the head of the team.” This quote from the book follows the tone of this chapter in that it is happy. Buck had finally taken lead and he was glad that he was the leader. This tone can also be seen in Pharrell Williams’ song “Happy.”

“Happy” – Pharrell Williams

“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 wanna do.”

The Law Of Club and Fang
This chapter is about Survival of the fittest, only the strongest can live in the environment Buck is living in with these other dogs. He has to learn by watching other dogs and by instincts to steal, fight, and makes his bed in the snow for shelter. Buck also learns that since he is such a big dog, he will have to steal others food to keep himself alive. Chapter 2, Page 24, “This first theft marked Buck as fit to survive the hostile Northland environment. It marked his adaptability…” The tone for chapter two is survival, and the song “Survival” by Eminem captures this feeling on how Buck needs to survive.

“Survival” – Eminem

“This is Survival of the fittest
This is do or die
This is winner takes it all
So take it all.”

The Toil of Trace and Trail
In this Chapter the dogs were overworked and underfed. After the Canadian government was done with the dogs, they were sold to a small group of travelers who came to the Yukon for gold. Their names were Hal, Charles, and Mercedes. They had no idea on how to handle the Northland conditions or how to run a team of sled dogs. When they had left Skaguay to head up to Dawson, the dogs were tired and needed a long rest, but since their owners were completely incompetent and interested in nothing but trying to get rich quick, they didn’t care about how the dogs were treated. At first the dogs were given too much food but were still overworked and when the owners realized their dog food was low, the dogs were underfed. Chapter 5, Page 49 “With the newcomers hopeless and forlorn, and the old teams warn out by twenty-five hundred miles of continuous trail, the outlook was anything but bright.” All of this ties to the tone of the chapter which is hardship. Rodney Atkins’ song “If You’re Going Through Hell” expresses this tone very well.

“If You’re Going Through Hell” – Rodney Atkins

“Well you know those times when you feel like
There's a sign there on your back
That says I don't mind if you kick me, seems like everybody has
Things go from bad to worse
You think it can't get worse than that
And then they do”

The Love of a Man
By this point in the book, Buck has been worked almost to death and is on the verge of death when John had saved him. This entire chapter is about how his loved for John Thornton has advanced and how he has come to be protective over John and how he would do anything that John asked. Chapter 6, Page 58 “Love, genuine passionate love, was his for the first time… love that was feverish and burning, that was adoration, that was madness, it had taken John Thornton to arouse.” The tone of love ties into the song “Accidentally In Love” by Counting Crows.

“Accidentally In Love”- Counting Crows

“We're accidentally in love
Accidentally in love”

The Sound of the Call
The main theme of chapter 7 is sadness. In this chapter, Buck’s love for John Thornton is halted to a stop because, while Buck is out hunting, John’s camp was attacked by a group of Indians. The Indians had killed everyone in the camp and had killed the dogs that stayed in the camp. Buck walked into camp and noticed one of the people staying with John was dead on the trail into the camp. As Buck walked farther into camp, he saw that the man was not the only victim of this massacre. When he actually got into camp, he noticed the group of Indians still in the camp and had killed quite a few of them before they decided to run away. Chapter 7, Page 76 “Thornton’s struggle was fresh-written on the earth, and Buck scented every detail of it down to the edge of a deep pool.” The song “See You Again” By Wiz Khalifa captures the emotion that is displayed in this book very well.

“See You Again” – Wiz Khalifa

“All the planes we flew
Good things we've been through
That I'll be standing right here talking to you
About another path”
