The Complexity of Love
Theme: Love is complex feeling and can be painful
Track 1: Falling for You: Colbie Caillat
I chose this song because it is about starting to fall in love.
In the beginning of A Midsummer Night's Dream, Helena is starting to fall in love with Demetrius, so she would listen to this song.
This song is just about falling in love. There is no component of sadness or jealousy in it. When Helena first fell in love with Demetrius, she wasn't insecure and whiny.
TRACK 2: Boom Clap: Charlie XCX
TRack 3: Stay With Me: Sam Smith
Track 4: I Wish : One Direction
Helena likes Demetrius, but his heart is already taken by Hermia. So the lyric "Oh I wish that was me" describes Helena perfectly because she would listen to this song when she wanted to be Hermia. This is when she realizes that Demetrius now loves Hermia and when she starts to grow jealous. So, this song represents Helena just starting to grow jealous of Hermia
