           Lonely post-JUVE world.

Fake Plastic Trees – Radiohead
           Jimmy’s mother, in the artificial world of the Compounds.
Piano Sonata No. 7 in Bb – Prokofiev (performed by Glenn Gould)
           Crake, though he was known as Glenn at the time, and his dark laconic clothing.
Never Let Me Down Again – Depeche Mode
           Two boys, the internet, and a great deal of pot.

Happy – Lit
           Jimmy - Women, ChickieNobs, and low paying jobs.
Eden – Guster

           Confrontation with Crake and what happened in the airlock. (So what if she did not turn blue?)
Spider – System of a Down
           Oryx’s bright pink ribbon in her hair. How much did she know about Crake’s plans? Why else would she ask Jimmy to watch over the Crakers if both she and Crake were gone?

Lady of Dreams – VAST
           All the women in Jimmy’s life, passing before his eyes. His mother. Disappearing into the darkness…
