Shakespeare inspired songs

Shall I compare thee to a Shakespearean play? Of course not, since these songs are by no means on par with the Bard's masterpieces, but still contain references from his works.

What a great idea for a collection! Teeth smile (The kind one wishes one would have thought of oneself... Wink smile )
Looking through the list, I was wondering whether you'd include actual works by Shakespeare set to music, and then I found Sonnet 29. Personally, I prefer Rufus Wainwright's take on it though:

As you probably know, Iron Maiden have a song called "Ides of March" too, but since it's instrumental it's not on LT. Tongue smile

Thank you for your kind comment!

Yes, I know the song and I believe it is excellent, just like all of Iron Maiden's songs. I will add more to the list soon, along with the missing videos.
