"Somebody Gonna Love You" – The Color Purple

I selected the soundtrack "Somebody Gonna Love You" from The Color Purple Original Broadway Soundtrack to listen to. This song is sung by Celie and occurs when Pa takes Celie's baby to "get rid of". I think it fits into the mood of the novel, the sadness and regret a mother feels when parted from her baby. The mood of the song is kind of gloomy but not entirely hopeless, signifying that there is still hope for the baby to live a happy life, although that life is not given by Celie. You can listen to this song here. Hope you enjoyed this post and see you all next time!

  1. Great choice of song! How does it set up the rest of the story? Does it anticipate the end when Celie is reunited with her children?
