Taylor Swift - Bad Blood ft. Kendrick Lamar

Bad Bloods By Taylor Swift

The song “Bad Blood” by Taylor Swift has a verse saying:

Now we got problems

And I don't think we can solve them

You made a really deep cut

And baby now we got bad blood

This relates to when Julius Caesar is killed in Act 3 Scene 1. The conspirators had a problem with Caesar that they weren’t ever going to get passed so they stabbed him. The stabbing of Caesar relates to the line “You made a really deep cut”. They also bathed in his blood which can relate to the part “now we got bad blood”. So overall this song comes in good relation with a scene with murder.

Rascal Flatts - What Hurts The Most

What Hurts the Most by Rascal Flatts

In the song “What Hurts the Most” by Rascal Flatts, he sings about being hurt by a loved one. Which relates to Caesar and Brutus, but more specifically to Brutus and Portia. In act 2 scene 1 where Portia is asking Brutus what is bothering him, going to the length of stabbing herself, then the doorbell rings and he has to walk away. Matching with the lyrics “what hurts the most was being so close, and having so much to say, and watching you walk away.” This song shows how hurt Portia was by needing to hear what was bothering Brutus, then him going to answer the door instead.

Kool & The Gang - Celebration

Celebration by Kool and The Gang

In the song “Celebration” by Kool and The Gang, it is all about celebrating and having a good time by repeating those exact words in the song. This can relate to Julius Caesar during Act 1, Scene 1 when the play first begins because everyone is in the streets of Rome and they are all celebrating the Feast of Lupercal and also the fall of the sons of Pompey. Every person in Rome was in their best clothes and having a good time for those 2 occasions. In the song they say “it’s time to come together and have a good time” and that's exactly what the people of Rome are doing during this scene to start off the play. In Act 1, Scene 1 it says "we make holiday to see Caesar and rejoice in his triumph", they are celebrating their new leader in a fitting fashion by making is a holiday to rejoice.
