PTS 12/077: Romeo and Juliet Soundtrack Album


There’s an irony that the PTS read-through project has significantly slowed when dealing with the plays I know best.

Mostly, I think it’s because I’ve had too much to say, and been unable to stick to a post-per-act; a post-per-scene is a killer.

So, at least for the moment, I’m moving on from Romeo and Juliet: there’s plenty of room for future posts if I want to revisit it, but I’m hungry for my next new play.

That leaves one thing to do before I move on, and that’s produce the now-traditional soundtrack album.

The eternal question is, of course: WHAT’S MISSING?  Drop me a line and let me know …

  1. Public Image Limited – This is Not A love Song
  2. Bon Jovi – This Ain’t A Love Song (both for anyone who thinks they know the play)
  3. Frankie Goes To Hollywood:  Two Tribes
  4. Razorlight:  I Can’t Stop This Feeling I Got
  5. Queen:  Too Much Love Will Kill You
  6. Lionel Richie and Diana Ross:  Endless Love
  7. Iron Maiden:  Only the Good Die Young
  8. Bad Company:  Feel Like Making Love
  9. Gregory Isaacs:  Night Nurse
  10. Freddie Mercury:  I Was Born To Love You
  11. Prince:  The Most Beautiful Girl In The World
  12. Led Zeppelin:  Communication Breakdown  (for Friar Laurence)
  13. Bee Gees:  I’ve Got To Get A Message To You (for Friar Laurence)
  14. The Animals:  We’ve Gotta Get Out Of This Place
  15. Lou Reed:  Romeo had Juliet
  16. Dire Straits: Romeo and Juliet
  17. Roberta Flack:  The First Time Ever I saw Your Face

And on we go, to King John
