War by Edwin Starr
I chose this song because it represents how in the beginning of the story Oberon is mad at Titania and they are having a verbal war with each other and then later they realize that there is no point in arguing because they are not getting anywhere just like how the song says "war, what is it good for"

All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey
I chose this song because I can see Oberon singing this to the little kid that he wants. It seems that at the time all he wants for Christmas is Titania's son. When the song says that I won't even wish for snow, snow may represent Titania's love and that Oberon would most likely rather have the young boy instead of Titania loving him.

Love Story by Taylor Swift
This song represents how Oberon wanted to see a love story between Helena, Hermia, Demetrius and Lysander. He wanted to see a true love story unfold right in front of his eyes and be able to say that he was the cause of it and no body would be this happy without him. When the song says "and my daddy said stay away from Juliet", Hermia represents Juliet and "daddy" represents Egeus and how he wants Hermia to have nothing to do with Lysander. I think that Oberon disagrees with that decision and that is why he messes up the love story.

Forget You by Cee Lo Green
I chose this song because this expresses how Oberon feels when Robin messes things up when he gives the love flower to the wrong person. Oberon just doesn't like Robin for a short amount of time after that and he just wants to say forget you because Robin did this and probably many other things wrong.

Apologize by One Republic
I chose this song because when Oberon had started to realize that it was partially his fault and that he had not given Robin enough specific information on who to use the love potion on, he might have thought it was too late to make his choices correct. So he might of thought it was "too late to apologize".

I Believe I Can Fly by R. Kelly
I chose this song because this is a song about someone trying to accomplish what he wants to do and this relates to Oberon because this is when Oberon is planning his plan he needs to believe that he can accomplish his plan. I don't think this song represents him but rather I think that this would be a song that he would listen to while planning because it is a good motivation booster.

Let's Get it Started by The Black Eyed Peas
I chose this song because it expresses how Oberon starts with his plan to make everything right. He needs to get his plan started before the King Theseus finds out about Hermia and the others. At the end of the song when they keep saying and running, and running, and running, and running... may express how Oberon is trying to finish his plan quickly.

All of me by John Legend
I chose this song because the song expresses how Oberon, in the end, realizes that he really loves Titania for who she really is. He does not really care about what she has even though he gets the boy in the end. When the lyrics say "I'll give you all of me" that may show that Oberon is willing to tell Titania anything that she wants to know and will keep no secrets (except for maybe the little kid) from her. So he is giving Titania all of what he knows to her.
John Legend All Of Me Lyrics
Happy by Pharrell Williams
This song represents Oberon's feelings when he successfully gets the love story correct and everyone loves who they need to love. When the lyrics say "no offense, don't waste your time", it may mean that he is so joyous that nothing can make him upset.

Lovely Day by Bill Withers
I chose this song because at the end of the story, everyone is happy. I thought this song will express everyone's feelings when they get married and Oberon and Titania make up to truly make it a lovely day.
