The Outsiders Soundtrack
Through the Fire and the Flames
Through the Fire and the Flames by Dragonforce very closely relates to the burning church dilemma from The Outsiders. One quote in the song relating to the book is, "We're banished from a time in a fallen land to a life beyond the stars." This can be interpreted as how Johnny and Ponyboy were forced out of the Greasers territory, "a fallen land", to the distant church, "a life beyond the stars." Another quote from the song is, "In flames of death's eternal reign we ride towards the fight." This relates to how Ponyboy and Johnny fearlessly ran toward the fire. This is supported in chapter four, “I started at a dead run for the church… Suddenly, in the red glow and the haze, I remembered wondering what it was like in a burning ember, and I thought: Now I know, it's a red hell. Why aren't I scared?"
Eye of the Tiger
it's where my demons hide." This quote is closely related to chapter 8, when Ponyboy said, " Sixteen years on the streets and you see a lot. But all the wrong sights, not the sights you want to see." Another idea the song is close to is how everybody didn't want Ponyboy to get tough. One quote from the song to follow this is, "Your eyes, they shine so bright
I want to save that light." This is similar to chapter 9, when Johnny said, " Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold…"
