The Odyssey Playlist

The song I choose for the overall story of the odyssey is don't stop believing journey

My reasoning for choosing this songs is odessyus never stopped believing. No matter what was thrown his way Odysseus never quit and he never stopped believing that he could make his way back home.

Just a small town girl

Livin' in a lonely world

She took the midnight train

Goin' anywhere

Just a city boy

Born and raised in South Detroit

He took the midnight train

Goin' anywhere

A singer in a smokey room

The smell of wine and cheap perfume

For a smile they can share the night

It goes on and on, and on, and on

Strangers waiting

Up and down the boulevard

Their shadows searching

In the night

Streetlight people

Livin' just to find emotion

Hidin' somewhere in the night

Workin' hard to get my fill

Everybody wants a thrill

Payin' anything to roll the dice

Just one more time

Some will win

Some will lose

Some were born to sing the blues

Oh, the movie never ends

It goes on and on, and on, and on

Strangers waiting

Up and down the boulevard

Their shadows searching

In the night

Streetlight people

Livin' just to find emotion

Hidin' somewhere in the night

[Instrumental interlude]

Don't stop believin'

Hold on to that feelin'

Streetlight people

Don't stop believin'

Hold on

Streetlight people

Don't stop believin'

Hold on to that feelin'

Streetlight people

Odysseus versus the suitors

Survivor - eye of the tiger

Rising up, back on the street

Did my time, took my chances

Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet

Just a man and his will to survive

So many times it happens too fast

You trade your passion for glory

Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past

You must fight just to keep them alive

It's the eye of the tiger

It's the thrill of the fight

Rising up to the challenge of our rival

And the last known survivor

Stalks his prey in the night

And he's watching us all with the eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat

Hanging tough, staying hungry

They stack the odds still we take to the street

For the kill with the skill to survive

It's the eye of the tiger

It's the thrill of the fight

Rising up to the challenge of our rival

And the last known survivor

Stalks his prey in the night

And he's watching us all with the eye of the tiger

Rising up, straight to the top

Had the guts, got the glory

Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop

Just a man and his will to survive

It's the eye of the tiger

It's the thrill of the fight

Rising up to the challenge of our rival

And the last known survivor

Stalks his prey in the night

And he's watching us all with the eye of the tiger

The eye of the tiger

The eye of the tiger

The eye of the tiger

The eye of the tiger

The eye of the tiger defiantly has a good fit to this seen. When Odysseus is faced against the suitors he had the eye of the tiger to fend them off. When the odds are 100 to 2 you're going to need the eye of the tiger.

Rising up to the challenge of our rival

Polyphemus

Hungry like the wolf - Duran Duran

Dark in the city night is a wire

Steam in the subway earth is afire

Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

Woman you want me give me a sign

And catch my breathing even closer behind

Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

In touch with the ground

I'm on the hunt down I'm after you

Smell like I sound I'm lost in a crowd

And I'm hungry like the wolf

Straddle the line in discord and rhyme

I'm on the hunt down I'm after you

Mouth is alive with juices like wine

And I'm hungry like the wolf

Stalked in the forest too close to hide

I'll be upon you by the moonlight side

Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

High blood drumming on your skin it's so tight

You feel my heat I'm just a moment behind

Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

In touch with the ground

I'm on the huntdown after you

Scent and a sound

I'm lost and I'm found

And I'm hungry like the wolf

Strut on a line it's discord and rhyme

I howl and I whine I'm after you

Mouth is alive all running inside

And I'm hungry like the wolf

Hungry like the wolf

Burning the ground I break from the crowd

I'm on the huntdown I'm after you

I smell like I sound

I'm lost and I'm found

And I'm hungry like the wolf

Strut on a line it's discord and rhyme

I'm on the hunt down I'm after you

Mouth is alive with juices like wine

And I'm hungry like the wolf

Burning the ground I break from the crowd

I'm on the huntdown I'm after you

Scent and a sound

I'm lost and I'm found

And I'm hungry like the wolf

Strut on a line it's discord and rhyme

I'm on the hunt down I'm after you

Mouth is alive

Their were really only two reasons why I chose this song. The first reason is it actually goes with what's going on in that scene when Polyphemus is eating his men. The second reason was I couldn't really find another song that would fit this scene.

"Hungry like the wolf"

The after affects of Scylla and Charybdis

Fix you - cold play

https://vimeo.com/40555466

When you try your best, but you don't succeed

When you get what you want, but not what you need

When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep

Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face

When you lose something you can't replace

When you love someone, but it goes to waste

Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home

And ignite your bones

And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below

When you're too in love to let it go

But if you never try you'll never know

Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home

And ignite your bones

And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face

When you lose something you cannot replace

Tears stream down your face and I

Tears stream down your face

I promise you I will learn from my mistakes

Tears stream down your face and I

Lights will guide you home

And ignite your bones

And I will try to fix you

Fix you is almost a perfect way to describe the way Odysseus felt after what had happen to his men with Scylla and Charybdis. Even though he knew their fate to begin with he still tried to help save his men.
