I chose two songs for the soundtrack of Orbiting Jupiter if it was a movie. The two songs I chose were Without You Acoustic (Breaking Benjamin) and Follow You (Bring Me The Horizon).
I think Without You Acoustic (Breaking Benjamin) is a good song for depression and heartbreak because of the sad melody and lyrics for it. I believe the song would be good for the part in the book where Joseph discovers that Maddie died giving birth to their child, Jupiter, because in the lyrics of Without You it says “I can't face the dark without you”. I feel like that lyric would say that Joseph can't face himself living without Maddie.
The song Follow You (Bring Me The Horizon) would be good for the theme when Joseph is talking about the happy moments he had with Maddie when they were together and she was not dead. I think that would be a good song because the tune is soft and the lyrics are about someone who loves you so much that they would follow you even if you went to hell as it states in the chorus that is “So you can drag me through Hell, If it meant I could hold your hand, I will follow you cause I'm under your spell, And you can throw me to the flames, I will follow you, I will follow you”. I believe that lyrics shows that Joseph would go through hell just to be with Maddie once again.
That is why I think that those two songs would be appropriate for the themes that I chose if Orbiting Jupiter was a movie.
