If I have to write a soundtrack for Orbiting Jupiter movie, which songs (3,4) would you chose and why did you chose them.
You can match songs to all overall theme of this novel, or to specific events (Be sure to to clarify this!) Your songs choices must be justified and supported!
If I had to chose 3 to 4 songs for the Orbiting Jupiter I would pick good creepy songs and sad also happy songs. The first song I would pick is Please Stay for when Joseph finds out when Madeline has died and he can not be the father also he never gets to see Madeline again. The reason why I picked this song is because its like a heartbreak and the time that Joseph find out that he can not see Madeline in the song it says things like "If I call out your name like a prayer would you leave me alone with my tears?" it is, like a sad song because the words are sad same with the music and talks about what they did in that past because Madeline and Joseph use to hang out all the time.
The second song I would pick is Happy because there is a time in the book when the hole family is skating and having fun that is why I picked the song happy. The reason why I picked this song is because Joseph and Jack and there dad were outside skating and talking and having fun skating and at the time it would be good for the movie. In the song it says "Bring me down... cant nothing bring me down" so if I would cast a movie I would pick that because like nothing Joseph can not be bring him down because he is having a fun time with his family.
The third song I would pick is Mad World because it is like a sad but also mad song to use in the movie. The reason why I picked this song is when Joseph was going on the bus for the first time and the bus driver says something like "where is your kid why did you almost kill a teacher" and he got so mad at the bus driver so that is why I picked this song because it is a sad and mad song that goes with his feelings.
The last song I have picked is Don't let me Down because it is like Jack does not want Joseph to let him let him down. The reason why I have picked this song is because the time Joseph was was on the ice and Jack does not want to go on it but Joseph is like letting him down because he does not care about what Jack is talking about. In the song it says "I think I`m losing my mind now" that is what I think Jack is think in his head because Joseph is walking on really thin ice. These are all the songs I have picked if I had to cast a movie for Orbiting Jupiter.
