Of Mice and Men
"Lately I been, I been losing sleep,
Dreaming about the things that we could be.
But lately, I been, I been prayin' hard.
Said no more counting dollars,
We'll be counting stars."
In this scene George is talking to Lennie about their future dream, and how everything would be so much easier if they didn't have to worry about money or work.
Count On Me
"You can count on me like 1, 2, 3
I'll be there
And I know when I need it
I can count on you like 4, 3, 2
You'll be there
'Cause that's what friends are supposed to do"
This song is connected to George and Lennie because they are really good friends and they can count on eachother. They both know what's best for the other and always try to help.
"They're just girls, breaking hearts
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
"I said yo, think you better go,
I can't take you!"
Curley's wife is always flirting with the men working on the farm and none of them want to talk to her because they know Curley will get really angry. They just tell her that she needs to leave before she gets in trouble but Lennie doesn't know what to think of her other than that "she's purty"
In the Arms of the Angel
"In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
Form this dark, cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here"
George is really sad that he has to lose his only friend, but he knows that he's doing the right thing for Lennie. Lennie doesn't have to worry about their troubles or be afraid of anything anymore because he is in a better place.
