Hamlet Playlist

By Kade Contrael
Bad Romance: Lady Gaga
This song describes Hamlet’s mother , Gertrude. Since Gertrude is married to
Claudius, who isn’t the best influence on her and it is not a good relationship.
Just like the song it talks about a bad love in a relationship. This “Bad
Romance” occurs with Gertrude and Claudius. Gertrude does not care she
wants Claudius
Bad Romance Lyrics

I want your drama (Verse


used 3 )
The touch of your hand

I want your leather-studded kiss in the sand

I want your love

Love-love-love
Thriller: Michael
Jackson
In the opening scene of Hamlet the atmosphere is filled with a heavy darkness
as Horatio sees a ghost that looks like dead King Hamlet, I would play this
song because it relates to Horatio saying “It’s close to midnight and something
evil is lurking in the dark” The sight of dead King Hamlet is scary and creepy
and this song fits perfectly for it.
Thriller: Lyrics

I t's close to midnight (Verse


Used)
Something evil's a-: lurkin'in the dark

Under the moonlight

You see a sight that almost stops your heart

You try to scream

But terror takes the sound before you make it

You start to freeze


Beat it: Michael Jackson
This song expresses thoughts on revenge, example is Hamlet trying to avenge
his father the entire play. Another factor is madness, family, and death
Madness is presented throughout the entire play but an example is in Act IV
when Laertes is infuriated with Claudius about his father’s death, even though
it was Hamlet, our Protagonist.
Beat it Lyrics

T hey're out to get you, better leave while you can (Multiple
verses)
Don't wanna be a boy, you wanna be a man

You wanna stay alive, better do what you can

So beat it, just beat it

You have to show them that you're really not scared

You're playin' with your life, this ain't no truth or dare


Fake Love: Drake
Fake Love relates to Ophelia and Hamlet’s troubled love affair. This is true
because Hamlet is obviously showing he isn’t interested in Ophelia from the
beginning of the play. Hamlet is leading Ophelia on as well. Sexual words,
when he doesn’t mean it and plenty more. Also including Gertrude and
Claudius, as personally I believe Claudius can careless about what Gertrude
has to say.
Fake Love Lyrics
I've been down so long it look like up to me

(Verse 4)
They look up to me

I got fake people showin' fake love to me

Straight up to my face, straight up to my face

I've been down so long it look like up to me

They look up to me

I got fake people showin' fake love to me

Straight up to my face, straight up to my face


Wrecking Ball: Miley Cyrus
This song brings a whole different atmosphere to the book of Hamlet, this
covers parts of the book from Claudius acting as a wrecking ball to ruin
everybody’s world when he murders King Hamlet. Also talking about Claudius
acting as a wrecking ball once more in Act III
Wrecking Ball Lyrics

I've been down so long it look like up to me (Verse


7.1)
They look up to me

I got fake people showin' fake love to me

Straight up to my face, straight up to my face

I've been down so long it look like up to me

They look up to me

I got fake people showin' fake love to me


Mean: Taylor Swift
Mean by Taylor Swift is the best song in the world to describe Rosencrantz
and Guildenstern’s betrayal on Hamlet. They switch sides on Hamlet and are
cold blooded monsters, just like one of many of Taylor Swift’s ex’s she is
talking about in this song. Example is in Act II when they are sent by Claudius
to spy on Hamlet and lie right to Hamlet’s face.
Mean Lyrics
You, with your switching sides

(Verse 2)
And your wildfire lies and your humiliation

You, have pointed out my flaws again

As if I don't already see them

I walk with my head down

Trying to block you out cause I'll never impress you

I just wanna feel okay again


The one that got away: Katy Perry
The “One that got away” is perfect for the example of a time in Act IV when
Hamlet lets Ophelia right out of his life, he didn’t realize how much she meant
to him until after she was gone. She commited suicide.
The one that got away Lyrics
In another life, I would be your girl

(Verse 9)
We'd keep all our promises, be us against the world

In another life, I would make you stay

So I don't have to say you were the one that got away

The one that got away


In and out of love: Bon Jovi
In and out of love describes yes, once again Hamlet and Ophelia’s troubled
love affair, this song however doesn’t cover the abuse, and depression. In Act
II Hamlet shows his inconsistency with Ophelia and that is exactly what this
song is talking about, Hamlet refuses to stop playing love games with Ophelia,
“going in and out of love”
In and out of love Lyrics
And out of love

(Verse 5)
Hear what I'm sayin'

In and out of love

It's the way that we're playing

In and out of love

Too much is never enough

She's gonna get ya.


Myself: Nav
Myself by Nav reminds me of Claudius and Laertes because they are so full of
themselves and do not care about anyone else, an example is when Claudius
can go stick up for himself but he sends Polonius in Act II to go see what’s
wrong with Hamlet because he was to big of a coward to do it himself.
Polonius ends up dead and Claudius doesn’t even feel bad that it was because
of his orders that Polonius is dead.
Myself Lyrics
When I'm sober I just don't like who I am

(Verse 6)
Pour me up a 4 and I'll feel like myself again

Leave me and I'll feel like myself again

I'mma break every box they try to put me in

I got a lot of enemies who used to be my friends

I’m the best and I'll feel like myself again

Betray me and I'll feel like myself again


Lil Uzi Vert: Ps & Qs
Although I only used a very small portion of this song, I saved it for last
because it has the biggest impact of them all. Ps & Qs touches on multiple
aspect of Hamlet but mostly on Claudius how he swoops in “out of nowhere”
and he steals Gertrude from King Hamlet, and then everyone acts as if it didn’t
happen, other than Hamlet of course. Lil Uzi expresses a “mr steal yo girl”
theme when he says “yeah I took your girl I made her mine”
Ps & Qs Lyrics

Yeah, I took what's yours (Verse 3x)

I made her mine

Yeah, I took what's yours

I made her mine
