During the chapter Kim Wilde, Marji goes out and rebels with the music she listens to. For a long time, parents have complained how the songs their teenagers listen to influence them and cause them to rebel. The music that Marji is liberated by the Western music because it is the type of music she likes to listen to, although it is restricted and not allowed, she still goes out and buys the tape because it gives her a sense of freedom to listen to what kind of music she likes to. Many freedoms were taken away from her in Iran, such as the right to show her hair in public, but Marji feels as if she has a sense of control over what type of music she can listen to. Present day adolescents feel the same way about their music. Growing up, I have always felt that while living under the roof of my parents I am restricted to many things. What time I go to bed, who I’m allowed to hangout with, how late I can stay out…I felt as if many things are constricted by my parents because of the rules they enforce. While growing up, I learned to love music more and more, and part of the reason is because of the freedom I had to listen to whatever kind of music I wanted to. It was one of the few things my parents did not control, and I loved that there were so many different types of music that I can listen to, I wasn’t just limited to one genre. Although no specific songs were important to me, since my parents always listened to classical music, which I was sick of, having my own genre of music I liked that I could listen to gives me a sense of freedom.
