SHAKESPEREAN RHAPSODY – Song With Shakespeare Quotes

This song has a number of Shakespeare’s quotes in it. The inspiration for this song is the question of whether Romeon and Juliet would have stayed together long-term had they not died.

And even if they did stay together, would their love remain as passionate as it was in the beginning? It usually doesn’t, so this song brings back a little bit of the harsh reality of love: that it ends or decreases in intensity.

My favorite Shakespeare quote in this song is: “Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.” Not only is it so true, but it also is an example of extraordinary imaginative and creative writing with many metaphors and images in just one line.


I have written a number of other romantic songs with beautiful imagery. If you like this song, please check out my song Wind Of Sighs, the title of which was inspired by the very quote of Shakespeare that’s in Shakespearean Rhapsody. I also write a song Oh Michelangelo which re-imagines Michelangelo’s famous painting The Birth Of Adam.
