What are some songs that relate to isolationism in Of mice and Men?
Try Woodie Guthrie songs:

I Ain't Got No Home in this World Anymore https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Z6OEqc0uS0

Dust Bowl Refugee https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_ehYkr0NhU

Contrast with Simon and Garfunkle 1960's New York:

The Boxer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYPJOCxSUFc

The Sound of Silence https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zLfCnGVeL4

And The Beatles 1960's Liverpool

Eleanor Rigby https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twFbweJfUUo

Sort of connected to 'I'm on fire' by Bruce Springsteen in my mind...
it was on the radio a lot about the same time I was reading the book.

& probably tracks off the Nebraska album too

from roughly the same era... The Chameleons

P.S. Just reading the comments on those videos and I notice that the drummer in that band, John Lever, died earlier this year - We weren't besties but I had spoken to him a couple of times and was a neighbour of his cousin at uni.

'The Ghost of Tom Joad' - written about a character from another Steinbeck book 'The Grapes of Wrath' which deals with the same time period.
