"Sugar We're Going Down"
Fall Out Boy
I chose "Sugar We're Going Down" because Atticus decides to defend Tom Robinson. Lines 9 and 10 say, "We're going down, down in an earlier round and sugar we're going down swinging." This relates to the book in that Atticus knows that he will lose the case, but will try his hardest because he knows it is the right thing to do.
Lines 10 through 13 of the song "Landslide" talk about how things change and "children get older." Scout is bothered by how her brother is changing because he is getting older. She realizes how much she misses Dill and that his life has changed and also that their relationship has changed. Another change addressed in these pages is that not everyone agrees with her father defending Tom Robinson.
"Forever Your Girl"
The first 4 lines in the song "Forever Your Girl" relate to the book because Scout and Dill think that they will always be together. "Dill would reach up and kiss me when Jem was not looking." Also, in a letter Dill wrote to her he "concluded by saying he would love me forever and not to worry, he would come get me and marry me as soon as he got enough money together."
When Calpurnia was confronted by Lula about bringing Scout and Jem to a black church, Jem says, "Let's go home, Cal, they don't want us here.'" Zeebo, a black man who attends the church, says, "We're mighty glad to have you all here. Don't pay no tention to Lula... she's a troublemaker from way back, got fancy ideas and haughty ways.'" Even though it is a black church, most of the congregation welcomes the white children. This identifies with line 10 of "Two Worlds."
