Pride & Prejudice Soundtrack sample

Scene 1: The Bennets hear about Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy

I chose It's Time by Imagine Dragons to represent this scene because Mrs. Bennet is really excited and wanting to go meet them. This is similar to the song because it's a really upbeat song and listening to the song makes it sound like there are a lot of things to look forward to. START AT 0:16
Imagine Dragons - It's Time

Scene 2: Elizabeth's first impression of Darcy

I think Teeth by Cage the Elephant is really fitting of this scene because the song is really obnoxious and very weird so the first several times I heard it, I didn't like it at all. That's very similar to how Elizabeth really didn't like how rude Darcy was the first time they met. Then later in the book she loves Darcy in the same way that after listening to this song a lot of times, it's weirdly a lot more likable. START AT 0 AND GO FOR 10-15 SECONDS

Scene 3: Darcy's letter to Elizabeth

I chose Trouble by Imagine Dragons (again) for this scene and it applies very well to this part of the book because Elizabeth is having second thoughts and opinions about Darcy. The song Trouble is a pretty fast upbeat song that's in the album directly after a more dark, slow and sad song. The scene and the song are both similar because Elizabeth's second thoughts of Darcy come right after a sad and dark time since she used to dislike Mr. Darcy and Trouble turns the mood around much like Darcy's letter. START AT 0:12

Scene 4: Elizabeth and Darcy decide to get married

Cigarette Daydreams by Cage the Elephant fits this scene well because it's a really warm and happy sounding song to finish the album and Elizabeth's realization that she loves Mr. Darcy finally makes almost everything in the book clear. Having a happy and slow song that concludes the album is well fitting for Elizabeth's relief and realization. START AT 1:18
