True Love Defies All Odds
Hermia and Lysander's Love Mix Tape
Theme: True Love always Wins In The End
track one: "RUde" by MAGIC!
"Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life? Say yes, say yes 'cause I need to know, You say I'll never get your blessing 'til the day I die, Tough luck, my friend, but the answer is "No" "
track two: "break your little heart" by All time low
"I'm gonna break your little heart, Show you to the door, Sew yourself shut, now you're begging for more, 'Cause there's nothing surgery can do, When I break your little heart in two"
Hermia really doesn't like Demitrius, but he still follows her around. So, she always trys to reject him, because she loves Lysander. If this happened to me, I would be mad, and want to break his heart in two. She really doesn't like him, although her father does. I think this a perfect way to describe her feelings towards Demitrius.
track three: "Let's Elope Baby" by Janis Martin
"...Let's elope, honey, paw's asleep, maw is too, Let's elope, baby, the preacher's awaiting, and my heart is true..."
These lyrics sum up what Hermia and Lysander were thinking when they made their plan to elope. When they were going to get married, Hermia's father was talking to Theseus, and Lysander's parents didn't know. They didn't have a preacher to marry them, but they were going to Lysander's aunt's house to live. Overall, this song is all about eloping, and that's all that matters!
track four: "Night Changes" by One Direction
"We're only getting older baby, And I’ve been thinking about you lately, Does it ever drive you crazy, Just how fast the night changes, Everything that you’ve ever dreamed of, Disappearing when you wake up, But there’s nothing to be afraid of, Even when the night changes, It will never change me and you"
Hermia and Lysander rest while, magic changes the path of their love. This song fits really well because all that Hermia's ever dreamed of is disappearing when she wakes up. It's kind of Ironic because it says it will never change me and you, and what's changing is Lysander's love. But, in the end, we all realize that their love never really did change. :)
track five: "Please don't leave me" by P!nk
"I don't know if I can yell any louder, How many time I've kicked you outta here?, Or said something insulting?"
Then, the next part is about not leaving her, not how he's made her act out of character, which Lysander was definitely doing.
"When my heart is broken, Da da da, da da, Please don't leave me, Please don't leave me, I always say how I don't need you, But it's always gonna come right back to this, Please, don't leave me, How did I become so obnoxious?, What is it with you that makes me act like this?, I've never been this nasty"
This song is about the two sides of one person, but if you think about it like Lysander and Hermia, it all fits.
track six: "Say something" by A great big world
"Say something, I'm giving up on you, I'll be the one, if you want me to, Anywhere, I would've followed you, Say something, I'm giving up on you, I am feeling so different now, Perhaps, I was in over my head, But, I know a lot more now, Where are you at now?"
The song describes knowing a lot more now, and wondering where you are now, which Hermia says before she falls asleep, she wonders is he is safe. The song also describes that anywhere, I would've followed you, which shows how much Hermia loved Lysander.
track seven: "who you love" by john mayer feat. katy perry
"Oh, you can't make yourself stop dreaming, Who you're dreaming of, If it's who you love, Then it's who you love."
Once they get back together again, they get married, and it seems almost like the magic flower never happened. This song means to accept who you love, and that's exactly what they were doing.
track eight: "Count on me" by bruno Mars
"You can count on me, like 1 2 3, I'll be there, And I know if I need it, I can count on you, like 4 3 2, You'll be there, 'Cause that's what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah"
Hermia and Helena go from hating to loving each other in a short period of time. This is just what good friends do, and they have many precious memories together. In the end, they become good friends again.
track nine: "MArry me" by train
"Forever can never be long enough for me, To feel like I've had long enough with you, Forget the world now, we won't let them see, But there's one thing left to do"
The song describes how forever won't be enough, and that's what they were feeling before they were going to get married. Theseus says that Hermia's father doesn't get a say in true love. This shows how true love conquers all. It's happy that they get married in the end.
track ten: "ever ever after" by Carrie Underwood
"No wonder your heart feels it's flying, Your head feels it's spinning, Each happy ending's a brand new beginning, Let yourself be enchanted, you just might break through"
