Epic soundtrack for the book The Odyssey


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, can you all help me out with this English Project.

In class, we are reading The Odyssey, and we have to a crative project. I chose to make a "soundtrack" to this epic, which I am naming "The Gods Can't Stop the Rock". I need some help compiling songs for this. I was wondering if you guys who have read the book could help me out. I have some themes if that can help people.

I need some songs that deal with/are about:

Missing your lover when he is far away

Coming home from war

having an unattainable lover

finding your inner strength/ adolesent self discovery

Dreaming of home

Soldier's Brotherhood

Songs of the Sea

so far, I have some songs...

"On My Own" from the Les Mis Soundtrack

"He Went to Paris" by Jimmy Buffet

"Homeward Bound" by Simon and Garfunkel

"Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?" by Mandy Patinkin

"I don't want to miss a thing" by Aerosmith

"Traveling Soldier" by the Dixie Chicks

"The General" by Dispatch

can you guys help me out?

Hi, Kibbutznik! Welcome!!! What about "Emotional Rescue" (Stones) when Odysseus comes back home and kills Antinous (sorry, I´m French, I don´t know what´s his name in English!!)?

Or "Sky Pilot" (Eric Burdon) for Telemacus falling?

Well, it´s part (only part) joke, but if you´re interested in the lyrics, I can post them. Just ask.

And welcome to songfacts!
