Essay on Review Of ' The ' Ultralight Beam ' By Kanye West
• “Ultralight Beam” by Kanye West is the first song on this soundtrack. The second verse by Kelly Price talks about how “You persecute the weak / Because it makes you feel so strong,” similar to when Atticus talks about how Mayella is putting this man on trial so she doesn’t have to deal with the fact she kissed a black man. They both possess the mood of being somber. The song makes you feel as if there are problems that have been corrected and you finally feel free. The book, however, highlights the racial divide between whites and blacks. Though their mood is different, they both have similar meanings. This happened in chapter18.
• “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked” by Cage the Elephant is the second song on this soundtrack. This song talks about how there needs to do anything they possibly can to live their life because they have others counting on them. For example, in the song the prostitute confronts the speaker and offers her services so that she can pay for her family. On the other end of the spectrum, we see in the book that Tom Robinson gave up his time to help Mayella with her chores simply because he felt sorry for her and did not accept a cent from her. The mood in these works is pessimistic. In the book, it shows that even when helping someone they can turn on you and put you on trial for your life. In the song, it shows that you are going to have to do what you have to, to live your life. This happened in chapter 18.
