Something in the Water
The Song of the Family
I thought the song, "Something in the Water" was a good fit because she talks about changing in the song. You change you family and they change you. They make you stronger and help with all your problems. When she says, "there must have been something in the water", the pearl was in the water. The pearl changed Kino's family and made them stronger in a way.
Song of the Pearl (beginning) Feel this Moment- Pitbull ft. Christina Aguilera
One day when the light is glowing I'll be in my castle golden
But until the gates are open I just wanna feel this moment
I chose the song, "Feel this Moment" because it is a very exciting song. The light starts glowing when Kino finds the pearl. The gates are going to open when he sells the pearl. Until that happens, they live in the moment and are mostly excited about their good fortune from the Gods.
Song of the Pearl (end) Blank Space by Taylor Swift
Nice to meet you, where you been?
I could show you incredible things
Magic, madness, heaven, sin
Saw you there and I thought
Oh my God, look at that face
You look like my next mistake
Love's a game, wanna play?
New money, suit and tie
I can read you like a magazine
Ain't it funny, rumors fly
And I know you heard about me
So hey, let's be friends
I'm dying to see how this one ends
Grab your passport and my hand
I can make the bad guys good for a weekend
So it's gonna be forever
Or it's gonna go down in flames
You can tell me when it's over
Blank Space is the perfect song because the pearl is finally found. The pearl shows many different sides of itself like magic, madness, heaven, and sin. The pearl was like a game and they lost. They lost Coyotito and mostly everybody looks at them differently now. Kino risked everything and lost most of it.
The Song of Evil Wake Me Up by Avicii
Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can't tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start
They tell me I'm too young to understand
They say I'm caught up in a dream
Well life will pass me by if I don't open up my eyes
Well that's fine by me
So wake me up when it's all over
When I'm wiser and I'm older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn't know I was lost
I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don't have any plans
The song "Wake Me Up" is a great fit for the Song of Evil. Kino and Juana are desperately trying to find a way to change for the better. Juana just wants to throw the pearl back into the ocean to get rid of the evil. Kino is caught up in a dream of his own; picturing what life will be like after he sells the pearl. Juana is trying to carry the weight of their world by trying to convince Kino to get rid of the pearl. Trying to show him that he needs to know what is important in his life.
The Song of the Enemy All of Me by John Legend
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
You've got my head spinning, no kidding, I can't pin you down
What's going on in that beautiful mind
I'm on your magical mystery ride
And I'm so dizzy, don't know what hit me, but I'll be alright
My head's under water
But I'm breathing fine
You're crazy and I'm out of my mind
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
The song "All of Me" works very well for the Song of the Enemy. Kino is in a daze and can't seem to be able to get out of it. When somebody tries to steal the pearl, he gets hurt. He's says he going to be alright, but Juana thinks he's crazy. He is putting everything at risk and he doesn't know what he is going to get out of this whole thing.
The Song of the Book I Bet My Life by Imagine Dragons
Kino basically bet his family's lives. He put them in danger because people wanted the pearl all to themselves. Everyone is irritated when he throws it back into the water and never to be found again.
