Much Ado About Nothing
By: Brooke Richmond
Olly Murs' song " Oh My Goodness " is a good representation of the love theme in the film Much Ado About Nothing. When Murs says, " It's too late to look away, and unfeel what I feel for you ... Look away, and unsee what I see in you, " it reminds me of how much Claudio loved Hero in the beginning of the film. He knows that after he's fallen for Hero there is no going back; he is going to love that girl for the rest of his life. Also, when the song says, "I'm going too fast, heart first.. My head just can't slow me down," it makes me think of Claudio at the wedding. Once Claudio had Hero cheating on him stuck of his mind he couldn't stop. His head wouldn't slow him down or stop him from yelling all those awful things at the wedding. Lastly, when Murs says, " You got me dreaming of a life that anybody else would die for," it reminds me of when Claudio found out Hero didn't cheat. He finds out that Hero died for nothing and he longs for her. He can't help himself from dreaming of the life they could've had and how much he loves her still. Therefore, I believe " Oh My Goodness" by Olly Murs is the perfect song to represent the theme of love in Much Ado About Nothing.
