Hey guys,

Don't know if any of you people have read The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway but I'm currently in the midst of an assignment based on it for my English class - the power of art within the story to be precise.

Anyways, what I need help with is that I need to find a song with lyrics that can accurately relate to the musical power throughout the story.

Quick background to the story: A cellist in Sarajevo (during the siege) witnesses several people get blown up while lining up to buy bread and he decides to go out into the ruins of the buildings (with shots being fired around him) and play Albinoni's Adagio in G minor for as many days as there were victims). People, greatly affected by the siege, hear his music every day and are given some kind of hope, being the main focus of my assignment: the power of art...

I hope i explained it well enough and I really need some help with this.

Bach's Cello Suite no. 1

Because I don't know anything else for the cello.

And it's really pretty.

Krv is from Sarajevo, so something by them.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

The deaf girl's song - Cloud Cult, it's not specifically relevant to the book but its lyrics are about a silent song written by a deaf girl that effects loads of people.

Did you hear about the deaf girl
The one who sang a silent song
Although it's totally quiet
You can't help but hum along

Did you hear about the deaf girl
The one who wrote the silent CD
Although there's nothing to hear
I swear that there are things to be seen

She'll make the world stand still
She'll make the world stand still

And someone sing us a song
That makes us feel like raspberries in the middle of June
When the garden's just getting going Someone sing us a song
That makes us feel like the coolest kid on the first day of school
You're as big as you're gonna get but you're still growing

Did you hear about the deaf girl
The one whose song's gone number one
Three minutes of silence on the radio
It's the best damn gift for everyone

Did you hear about the deaf girl
The one who made everything clear
If we could just shut up for a second
My darling, my dear, we might actually hear

She made the world stand still
She made the world stand still

And someone sing us a song
That makes us feel like the dead are breathing birthday balloons
And they blow and they blow and they blow
And someone sing us a song
That makes us feel like the fourth of July and New Year's Eve
Are making love in the snow
Ah-oh, ah-oh

Random shot in the dark after having a quick look through very few of the songs I have on my PC:
Bullet For My Valentine - Deliver Us From Evil

I was thinking of some Pink Floyd song too, but I can't really remember which one.
