Happy Birthday, Shakespeare!Bookish , Music
It's (maybe, sort of, possibly) Shakespeare's birthday today, and I was going to find a passage to quote, but it's Friday morning and hey, let's have some music instead. Other favorite songs that reference Shakespeare's characters, anyone? I feel like I'm forgetting about something really obvious.
October Project's "Ariel:"
Dire Straits' "Romeo and Juliet:"
And the same covered by The Killers, which I'd somehow never heard before:
Taylor Swift's "Love Story:"
And hey, Shakespeare references "Greensleeves," so that's as good as excuse as ever to make sure everyone's heard Loreena McKennitt doing Tom Waits doing "Greensleeves:"
