Candy's Dog Scene
"We'll Meet Again" -Johnny Cash
We selected this song because it explains the yearning to see a deceased loved one again. This relates to Candy wishing he still had his dog but he knows that it is in a better place and they may meet again. The tone of the song is sad and mournful and this depicts candy laying on his bed mourning his dog's death.
Candy Joins George and Lennies Plan
"Ooh Child" -The Five Stairsteps
The song says that better times are to come even though life is hard at the moment. This relates to the three workers because they work long hard hours but there is hope for them. The mood is content and hopeful just like the three men are.
Curley Fights Lennie
"Ride of the Valkries" -Richard Wagner
Normally associated with war, this song fits because the conflict between Lennie and Curley reaches it's climax.
George Loses Lennie
"Second Chance" -Shinedown
The main chorus line of the song is, "sometimes good bye is a second chance". This describes George's situation because even though he just lost his only friend he get's a chance to live his own life.
