Carry on my Wayward Son Lullaby Version

After Ponyboy, Johnny, and dally saved the children from the burning building they were in rescues. Johnny was in critical condition. In this song, Carry On My Wayward Son Lullaby version, it has a line in it that says, "...there'll be peace when you are done. Lay your weary head to rest don't you cry no more." This line reminds me of Johnny. He doesn't have to worry about life at home anymore because he's gone and when the line says, "there'll be peace when you are done" reminds me of the rumble and how theres going to be no more fighting.

How to Save a Life by The Fray

When Ponyboy, Johnny, and Dally pull up to the church it's on fire. Ponyboy and Johnny run out of the car. Dally is mad that they did that but he runs with them. They find out that theres children in there so they run in trying to save them. I chose, How to Save a Life by The Fray, because their trying to save the children. a line in the song says "...I lost a friend." This line reminds me of how Johnny eventually died because of he got hurt in the fire and Ponyboy and Johnny were close friends.

Fix You by Coldplay

The song, Fix You by Coldplay, reminds me of Johnny. It reminds me of how he had a tuff time at home and now he's died. The line, "...and I will fix you", reminds me of how the doctors are trying their best to fix Johnny and how the Greasers are trying to help Johnny stay happy because they know how bad him life is at home.

Trophy Father's Trophy Son by Sleeping With Sirens

The song, Trophy Father's Trophy son by Sleeping With Sirens, reminds me of how Darry, Sodapop, and Ponyboy don't have a mom and dad because they died in a car crash. The line, "When I go to sleep your not there" reminds me of how Ponyboy sleeps with Sodapop at night because Ponyboy had bad dreams. The line," It's been hell not having you here", makes me think off all the problems that Ponyboy, Darry, and Sodapop have faced with the socs and the police. I think Ponyboy especially just wants his parents there for him so he can feel safe.

Man Down by Rihanna

The song, Man Down by Rihanna, reminds me of when Johnny killed one of the Socs, Bob. Bob was drowning Ponyboy so Johnny stabbed Bob. The lines, "It's to late to turn back now" and "So I'm about to leave town" make me think of how Johnny and Ponyboy ran away to the church so they wouldn't be caught by the police.
