14.1

The soundtrack!  Brave New World – Aldous Huxley

Opening title song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozitqabi6UM  Technologic by Daft Punk

Why?  This song briefly paints a picture of how humans have become regulated.  How technological everything is is this future dystopia.

In the scene where they are touring the embryo part of the hatcheries:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOvgR_mWGco  Bring Me to Life by Evanescence

Why? All of these embryos are lives.  Canned, frozen, jarred, with the lid screwed on tight.  Some are purposely disabled.  Some are mentally boosted.  Bringing them to life…  Also, this doubles as society crying out.

When they are seeing the conditioning of the baby Deltas: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjX2KYuAJcA  Life Is Beautiful by Sixx A.M.

Why?  A pretty beginning and theme “Life is beautiful!” But underneath, it’s talking about how corrupt this is.  Same principle applying here?  I think so.

When they are walking through the place outside when the children play: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyhrYis509A  Barbie Girl by Aqua

Why?  It’s modernizing and sexualizing youth.  Toddlers singing/hearing this?  Creepy!  The song applies.  “I’m a barbie girl, in my barbie world.  You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere.”

When Fanny is telling Lenina she should be more promiscuous:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzumsXtyCW4  Good Time by Owl City

Why?  “We must make the effort [not to be faithful].” As Fanny says, and as the song goes,  “It’s always a good time!”  So the song should be an accurate representation of what Lenina should be doing, rather than being faithful.

 

 

Be creepy.

Stay strong.
