-This songs introduces one of the most vital aspects in Macbeth, the witches. It goes with ACT I, Scene 3 when Macbeth and Banquo come upon the witches who give them predictions of Macbeth becoming King and Banquo's sons becoming King's. In this song, it talks about destruction moving into "Must be the season of the witch." In Macbeth, this is highly true because all the destruction in the play is centered from the predictions.
*Season of the Witch-Donovan*
*I Want It All-Queen*
-This songs goes along with Lady Macbeth. When Lady Macbeth hears the predictions of Macbeth becoming King, she decides that they have to have this power, and that Thane of Cawdor is not enough. Soon they come up with a plan, which is mentioned in the song. Also, the song says "I want it all, and I want it now," which is exactly like Lady Macbeth. Lady Macbeth want the future to be with her alongside Macbeth being King, so as the song says, "here's to the future."
*The King Must Die-Elton John*
-This song perfectly relates to Macbeth and the killing of the King. In order for Macbeth to become King, King Duncan himself must die. In Act I, scene 7 with the conversation between Lady Macbeth and Macbeth is really when we see that they are actually planning on killing the King. In the song it says "And sooner or later, everybody's kingdom must end. And I'm so afraid your courtiers cannot be called your best friends." This relates because Macbeth was a friend of Duncan, and then it turns out that Macbeth kills him proving that those will do whatever it takes to get what they want, and to be careful who you trust.
*Confrontation-From Jekyll & Hyde The Musical*
-In this song, it is one man singing, but with two personalities. In the song, he is fighting with the good and evil in himself. He says "Am I a good man? Am I a mad man? There's such a fine line..." In Act I, scene 7, we see Macbeth struggling with the thought of killing the King. In Act II, scene 1, we see Macbeth's inner struggle before killing Duncan. He is fighting with himself on the thought of killing the King , just as in the song, Jekyll is fighting with his inner self (which is Hyde).
-This song relates to Macbeth becoming crazy. In Act II, scene 1, we see Macbeth's sililoquy before going off to kill Duncan. In this, he imagines a dagger in front of him that is not actually there. This is the beginning of all his madness. He is hopping aboard "The crazy train." His madness is continued in Act II, scene 3, when he talks of hearing voices.
*Crazy Train-Ozzy Osbourne*
-This is the only modern song in the mix. This song is very fitting with Lady Macbeth, in a sense that the disturbed thoughts are taking over her actions and mind. In the song it says "A disease of the mind, it can control you," it also says "It can creep up inside you and consume you." Lady Macbeth is completely taken over with the thought of more power. She is slowly growing more and more mad. Her "Mind's in disturbia."
-This song relates with specific lyrics to Act II, Scene 2 in Macbeth. In this Macbeth is going insane, and Lady Macbeth tells him to "Go get some water, And wash this filthy witness from your hand." In this song, it says "Wash your face and hands. Rid me of the problem, do all that you can," which relates perfectly. It relates overall to the who superstitious aspect of Macbeth as well.
-In Act II, scene 1, a bell rings in the middle of Macbeth's soliloquy symbolizing that it is time for him to go kill Duncan. This was a part of Lady Macbeth's plan that she would ring a bell when Macbeth was to go to action. "Hells Bells" represents the ringing of this bell (the beginning portion of the song). Even more relates with Macbeth in the song, such as when it says "Won't spare no lives," because Macbeth plans on killing or trying to kill whoever could get in his way or reveal the truth. Also, the song mentions "I'm rolling thunder pouring rain." This relates the weather controlled by the witches in portrayal of the evil actions.
