Transcript of Soundtracks for Romeo and Juliet

By: Jasmine Black Soundtracks of Romeo and Juliet We Found Love- Rihanna This incredibly catchy song by Rihanna tells a story of how two people found love in a place full of obstacles. Despite all of the challenges that the couple faces, they still have feelings for each other. In Romeo and Juliet, the couple realizes after meeting that their love will be complicated, thus indicating that their love was in a hopeless place. We Belong Together - Mariah Carey This song basically translates into the ongoing theme that Romeo and Juliet share of being "meant for each other". The star-crossed lovers both have intense feelings for each other, and couldn't imagine having any other partner, despite the lust-inspired feelings Love Story- Taylor Swift This song by Taylor Swift is a direct allusion to the tragedy, despite the inaccurate lyrics. The song describes "Romeo" and "Juliet" with very basic elements of the play. It describes their parent's disapproval, various meetings, and their "undying " love. Take Care - Drake This song relates to the connection of Romeo and Juliet, on how they view each other. Romeo and Juliet felt that all they had that accepted their love, other than Friar Lawrence and the Nurse, was themselves. In the end, they would take care of each other. Hate That I Love You- Rihanna ft. Ne-Yo I felt that this song described how Juliet felt when she found out that Romeo had been involved in the brawl that killed both Tybalt and Mercutio. She loved him, but she felt that it was wrong to love someone who could do something so horrendous. I Knew You Were Trouble - Taylor Swift This song kind of relates to how Juliet must feel about Romeo, especially in the final scene. When she awoke and found Romeo in a dead state, the song just comes to my mind. He was trouble, from the first time she saw him, and she felt a certain way when she was "left alone" by his death. They Don't Know About Us - One Direction I feel that this song completely explains how the couple feels. Romeo's and Juliet's love is completely misunderstood, so the vast majority of their families do not know about the little things that incorporate into their relationship. My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion This song really describes the passion between Romeo and Juliet. The song's message is that true love never dies, and in the case of the tragedy, Romeo's and Juliet's love and passion for each other seemingly passed all of the barriers in life, and went on even after their deaths. Wait For You - Elliot Yamin I feel that this song describes how Romeo feels towards Juliet. When he discovered Juliet in a death-like state, he realized that he would do anything to "be with her." The lyric, "Don't tell me I ran out of time.." kind of reminds me how Romeo felt , and partly how Juliet felt when they discovered the other's corpse. The One That Got Away- Katy Perry This song kind of relates to the theme of losing your love, especially in an unnecessary situation. When both of the lovers lost who they had all of this incredible passion for, they lost who they truly loved. Romeo lost Juliet, and Juliet lost Romeo, which relates to the fact that they both "got away" with their suicides. Soundtrack 1. We Found Love- Rihanna
