Julius Caesar Soundtrack

"Stay strong even when life doesn't give you a reason" -Jordan Gullete
Titanium by David Guetta
In the song Titanium, David Guetta sings about how to stay strong even when life doesn’t give you many reasons to. “ You shoot me down, but I won’t fall, I am titanium…” means that people and things in this world will always be waiting to see you fail, but you have to let your inner strength shine through and be made of titanium. At the end of Julius Caesar, when Antony takes Cassius and Octavius takes Brutus, Brutus and his men defeat Octavius’ men. It would have been easy for Octavius and Antony to back down, but they didn’t. “You shoot me down, but I get up…” Brutus and Cassius had the advantage here, but Antony and Octavius decided not to back down. They came into this battle made of strong titanium and this made them “bulletproof”.
Don't be afraid to fight for what you want- Caroline Tipton
Big Idea: Don’t be afraid to fight for what you want.
In this song, Sink or Swim, Lewis Watson sings about how you should never let doubt or fear stand in the way of something you want to accomplish. In Act V, Scene 1, Antony, Octavius, Brutus, and Cassius prepare for battle. Since the conspirators are doubtful about winning the war, they must find courage in order to fight with confidence. In this song it states, “don’t throw the towel, we can win this race.” This illustrates when Brutus must be brave and battle Octavius while Cassius battles Antony. It also says “Don’t let doubt ever have it’s day”, which is exactly what the conspirators were trying to overcome when competing with harder opponents. Throughout the whole play, the men all had to be brave and have a mindset of the lyrics “don’t be scared who cares if we lose again?”. This song connects with the play Julius Caesar and shows what many characters were feeling in the time of battle.
There is no perfect world -Miranda Rowden
In the song, Imagine John Lennon sings about what a perfect world would be like. Having no heaven, no hell, no wars and no hungry people. Just one perfect world. In the chorus ( “you may say i’m a dreamer, but i’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one.” ) We find that it’s very similar to the way Brutus would like everything to be. Unlike Cassisus, Brutus was more about having peace and being ruled by someone who would make it a perfect Rome.
