I have to do this report for my English class. Basically, i have to make a soundtrack for a play that we are reading. Its Fences by August Wilson. Its about a black family in the 1940's in New York who are going through a rough time. So, i was thinking putting mainly blues music, but I've looked through my music catalog and realized that there are a lot of rock songs that apply, so I'm pretty much looking for:
A song about baseball: Take me out to the ballgame
A song about death:
A song about dead end jobs (the guys work as garbage men, if that helps): Truck driving man Lynyrd Skynyrd
A song about fighting (like families fighting, not fist): Let it Die - Foo Fighters
A song about infidelity: Jolene - The White Stripes version
A song just about doing something with your life or something like that: Good Times Bad Times - Led Zeppelin (if you have a better suggestion tell me)
A song about fatherhood: Simple kind of Man - Lynyrd Skynyrd
A song about love: She loves you - The Beatles
A song about fighting with the devil/Death: The Devil Went Down to Georgia - Charlie Daniels

I guess something like that. Any help at all would be appreciated. And please, try to be serious.

well
if your as much of a smart ass as i am
just put as many death metal songs as possible in there, even if they just barely relate to the meaning

but im also a lazy asshole, and last time i was asked to something like this i didnt even bother looking at meanings and wrote i cum blood
Vikings? What Vikings? We are but poor, simple farmers. The village was burning when we got here, and the people must have slain themselves.

Infidelity : **** the pain away (peaches)

Fighting the Devil: The Devil Went Down to Georgia (either Charlie Daniels Band or Steve Ouimette should suffice)

Love: Wicked Game (HIM)

Fatherhood : Blood Brothers (Iron Maiden)

ok, about the death song, it has to be like a big epic, funeral song. i'm using it for the last song that is basically the funeral of the main character who died.

not about fighting with the devil but I always thought "A Warm Place" by NIN would be an incredible song for a funeral scene

A song about fighting with the devil/Death:
.


the devil went down to georgia
R.I.P. Frank Zappa R.I.P. Hideto Matsumoto and nowR.I.P. Rick Wright

It doesn't take words to make love
You be the flower, I'll be the bee
That wasn't love, they were just words
You be the heart, I'll be the arrow
