    Oh, and the Rammstein version is hillarious. "I don't wanna be barweed! In zee pet Zematarrrry!"

    The song was directly commissioned by King for the film.

    I'm surprised no one mentioned it yet but Stephen King was friends with Joey Ramone (I believe it was Joey if I remember correctly). King actually wrote a whole story about him and Joey going to a French Restaurant in the liner notes of the Ramones tribute CD.

    A karaoke favorite of mine. Love this song.

    Pretty straight forward stuff here - wasn't looking for insight, just felt like checkin' out the comments.

    I don't know this for a fact - but i'm imagining if King commissioned them to write the song, he probably did it before they filming began. Meaning they probably wrote and recorded the song before the movie was finished and hence used the book to based the lyrics around. It's cooler that way anyway - but that makes some kinda sense i think. No?

    I love this song. As Daisuke said, it was written for the film. It is also the first song I learned to play. Yay me!

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
