The 4 songs that I would chose are, Endless Love by Diana Ross & Lionel Richie, Hurt by Johnny Cash, Say Something by a Great World & Christina Aguilera and lastly One by U2.
- I chose Endless Love by Diana Ross & Lionel Richie for the part when Joseph meets Madilyn till Madilyn is pregnant. I chose this song for this part because Joseph and Madilyn are in love and Endless Love is a love song. The lyrics of Endless Love connects to the actions that Joseph and Madilyn because the songs talks about how the couple want nothing but themselves and Joseph went to Madilyn house every day like he depends on her and Madilyn kissed Joseph for the first time and that match a paragraph in Endless Love.
2. I chose Hurt by Johnny Cash for the parts when Joseph tells his painful flashback and the part when Joseph gets in a fight in the lockers because the song is all about pain, anger and fear. Joseph has suffered a lot of pain, anger and fear and hurt by Johnny Cash was the song that reminded me of Joseph’s pain, anger and fear. In the song it says “I hurt myself today” reminds me as the part when Joseph kept trying to escape the prisons and the fight in the lockers.
3. I chose Say Something by a Great World & Christina Aguilera for the part when Joseph and Jack were skating on the ice because the song tune is what I picture as for Joseph skating and I think he is probably thinking of Madilyn and Jupiter. In the song it says “I will stumble and fall” reminds me of when Joseph fell on the ice. In the song it also say “i’m sorry I couldn’t get to you” reminds me of when Joseph is trying to see Madlyn and Jupiter.
4. I chose One by U2 for the main theme because the chorus stands out to me because it says “one love one life when it's one need one love”. To me the chorus lyrics stand out to Joseph because he only has one love and that is Madilyn and the one life is himself. The song is in a sad/ anger tune and Joseph feels both sad and anger most of the time.
