Transcript of Hamlet Song Project

Hamlet
"Than I to Hercules: within a month:
Ere yet the salt of most unrighteous tears
Had left the flushing in her galled eyes,
She married. O, most wicked speed, to post
With such dexterity to incestuous sheets!"
Hamlet Song Project
Monster
"Can I clear my conscience,
If I'm different from the rest,
Do I have to run and hide?
I never said that I want this,
This burden came to me,
And it's made it's home inside"
My Immortal
"These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase"
Explanation
Hamlet believes that his mom married his uncle way to soon after his fathers death and they should be mourning still.
Song 1
Song 2
-Act 1 Scene 2
Hamlet
"Thus conscience does make cowards of us all, And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pith and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,"
-Act 3 Scene 1
Explanation
Hamlet believes that your conscience can make you brave or also a coward.
Song 3
Mad World
"And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad, the dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had"
Hamlet
"To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep; No more; and by a sleep to say we end"
Explanation
In both the song lyrics and the soliloquy by Hamlet they are both thinking about suicide
Song 4
Crazy
"I hope all will be well. We must be patient: but I
cannot choose but weep, to think they should lay him
i' the cold ground. My brother shall know of it:
and so I thank you for your good counsel. Come, my
coach! Good night, ladies; good night, sweet ladies;
good night, good night."
Hamlet
Explanation
When Ophelia's father dies and is buried in the ground she starts to go crazy
-Act 4 Scene 5
"And when you're out there
Without care,
Yeah, I was out of touch
But it wasn't because I didn't know enough
I just knew too much

Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?"
Song 5
Let Her Go
Hamlet
"Get thee to a nunnery, go:
farewell. Or, if thou wilt needs marry, marry a fool; for wise men know well enough what monsters you make of them. To a nunnery, go, and quickly too. Farewell."
-Act 3 Scene 1
Explanation
Hamlet tells Ophelia all these nasty things to convince Polonius that he isn't love crazy.
"'Cause you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go

And you let her go"
Song 6
I Will Always Love You
Hamlet
Explanation
Hamlet jumps into Ophelia's grave to show he is upset and will always love her.
"What is he whose grief Bears such an emphasis? whose phrase of sorrow Conjures the wand'ring stars, and makes them stand Like wonder-wounded hearers? This is I, Hamlet the Dane."

[Leaps into the grave.]
"And I... will always love you, ooh
Will always love you
You My darling, you...
Mmm-mm"
Song 7
-Act 5 Scene 1
In The Air Tonight
Explanation
The song In The Air Tonight was wrote about a friend of his being killed and in Hamlet he finds out his father was killed.
Hamlet
"Well I remember, I remember don't worry
How could I ever forget, it's the first time, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, no you don't fool me
The hurt doesn't show; but the pain still grows
It's no stranger to you or me

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord..."
-Act 3 Scene 1
"'Tis given out that, sleeping in my orchard,
A serpent stung me; so the whole ear of Denmark
Is by a forged process of my death
Rankly abused: but know, thou noble youth,
The serpent that did sting thy father's life
Now wears his crown."
-Act 1 Scene 5
Hamlet
"Of thinking too precisely on th' event—
A thought which, quartered, hath but one part wisdom
And ever three parts coward—I do not know
Why yet I live to say “This thing’s to do,”
Sith I have cause and will and strength and means
To do ’t."
Song 8
Counting Stars
"Old, but I'm not that old
Young, but I'm not that bold
And I don't think the world is sold
I'm just doing what we're told

I feel something so right
By doing the wrong thing
And I feel something so wrong
By doing the right thing
I could lie, could lie, could lie
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive"
Explanation
Hamlet is having doubts about killing Claudius and sees himself as not so bold and a coward
Song 9
Dust in the Wind
Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away, all your money won't another minute buy

Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind
Hamlet
"'Tis sweet and commendable in your nature, Hamlet,
To give these mourning duties to your father:
But, you must know, your father lost a father;
That father lost, lost his, and the survivor bound
In filial obligation for some term To do obsequious sorrow: but to persever In obstinate condolement is a course Of impious stubbornness; 'tis unmanly grief; It shows a will most incorrect to heaven, A heart unfortified, a mind impatient, An understanding simple and unschool'd"
Explanation
In both the lyrics and play they are both talking about letting something or somebody go and to forget about it
-Act 1 Scene 2
Song 10
One Way or Another
"One way or another I'm gonna find ya
I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha
One way or another I'm gonna win ya
I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha
One way or another I'm gonna see ya
I'm gonna meetcha meetcha meetcha meetcha
One day, maybe next week
I'm gonna meetcha, I'm gonna meetcha, I'll meetcha
I will drive past your house
And if the lights are all down
I'll see who's around"
Hamlet
Explanation
Hamlet finds a way that he is able to confront Claudius of his crime.
"Watch my uncle at the play tonight. There's a scene that's just like how my father was killed. If my uncle doesn't react, then the ghost was a fake and I don't need to take revenge. We'll both observe the king during the play, and then compare notes to see how he reacted."
-Act 3 Scene 2
