Hi, this is a question from Orbiting Jupiter for you to answer. Have fun and good luck! Your question is ...
What are some emotions that you felt during chapters 4 -6 when reading/listening? When and why?
f you were to write a soundtrack for your Orbiting Jupiter movie, which songs (3-4) would you choose and why would you choose them?
If I were to write a soundtrack for an Orbiting Jupiter movie, three songs I would choose are Take Me to Church by Hozier, Creep by Radiohead, Someone Like You by Adele.
The first song I would choose is Take Me to Church by Hozier. The part where I would put this song is after Joseph talks to the priest. I would choose this song because in both the song and book their is a lot of prosecution and the tune fits the theme.
My First reason I would choose this song is because I think this song has a hidden meaning about life struggles. This is because Take Me to Church is about being prosecuted in the catholic church, this relates to Orbiting Jupiter because Joseph can hardly walk around Jack’s school without being prosecuted by almost everyone. An example of this is when Mr. Canton is telling Jack not to hang around Joseph.
My second reason I would choose Take Me to Church is because the tune of the song fits the theme. I think this because the tune of the song is sad and so is Joseph’s life. An example of this is when Joseph was telling his foster parents (Jack’s parents) about how he had to give Jupiter (his daughter) up for adoption.
That is why I think that Take Me to Church is a good song for a movie of Orbiting Jupiter. Click here for the song with lyrics.
The second song I would choose is Creep by Radiohead. The part where I would put this song is when Joseph meets Maddie for the first time (in the flashback) I would choose this song because it is a very depressing song and the song is about an outsider.
My first reason I would choose Creep is because this song is very depressing. I think this is important is because Joseph comes from a poor family and he loves Maddie but he can’t ever have her. This relates to the song because the depressiveness of the song represents that it’s sad that they are not allowed to be together.
My second reason I would choose this song is because the song is about an outsider. This is important because Joseph knows he can’t have her because he is poor and she is rich and their parents wouldn’t be happy and separate them and their relationship. This relates to the song because the song says that the girl is so beautiful but he can’t have her because he is a freak and an outsider.
This is why I would choose Creep by Radiohead. Click here for the song with lyrics.
The third song I would choose is Someone Like You by Adele. The part where I would put this song is when Joseph is done talking about his past. I would choose this song because it shows that Joseph is finally opening up to people and that he will never forget Maddie.
My first reason I would choose Someone Like You by Adele is because it shows that joseph is finally opening up to Jack’s family. This is because the line “ Why don’t you remember the reason you left me.” in the song means that she doesn’t want to forget why he left her, just like Joseph doesn’t want to forget Maddie and that he will do everything in his power not to forget her and what has happened.
My second reason I would choose this song is because this song is about never forgetting someone, in Joseph’s case Maddie and in Adele’s case a boyfriend. The line “ Don’t forget me I beg, I’ll remember you said.” shows never forgetting and not wanting the other person to forget you.
This is why I would choose this song for an Orbiting Jupiter movie. Click here for the song with lyrics.
These are the reasons why I would choose Take Me to Church, Creep, and Someone Like You for a sound track in Orbiting Jupiter.
