The Graph of Love

Helena's Playlist

Love is the power to break and unite people

In A Midsummer Night's Dream, Helena is a character who has problems trying to get Demetrius's attention away from her rival, Hermia. This playlist will show the emotions she feels as A Midsummer Night's Dream goes on.
The Teddy Bears - To Know Him Is To Love Him

To Know Him Is To Love Him by The Teddy Bears

It's obvious from the title that Helena wants to be loved by Demetrius, even though he shuns her. This song tells about a person loving someone who doesn't love the person back. One of the lines that fits this is "Why can't he see, how blind can he be. Someday he'll see that he was meant for me".
Adele - Someone Like You

Someone Like you by Adele

"I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it." shows that Helena will always love Demetrius.
Hot Chelle Rae ft. Demi Lovato - Why Don't You Love Me (with lyrics)

why don't you love me by hot chelle

As the title suggests, this music shows Helena's confusion on why Demetrius doesn't love her back. The lines that represent this are "Why don't you give me a reason? Please tell me the truth. You know that I'll keep believing, till I'm with you."
Coldplay - The Scientist

the scientist by coldplay

Only a parts of this song actually fit the theme, yet it shows the break-up between Helena and Demetrius. "Nobody said it was easy. It's such a shame for us to part."

Lysander Loves helena but she loves Demetrius

When magic intervenes so that Lysander is in love with Helena, Helena is confused whether if Lysander is kidding. She wants to get away from him because she thinks that he's making fun of her.
Orianthi - According To You

According To You by Orianthi

This song may not be about the topic but it tells that Lysander says that she's beautiful but Demetrius says that she's not. One of the lines that illustrates this topic is "I need to feel appreciated like I'm not hated. Why can't you see me through his eyes?"
A Great Big World - I Don't Wanna Love Somebody Else

i don't wanna love somebody else by a great big world

Although this natural theme is about breaking up (in which this case Helena doesn't want to), I chose this because of the words in it and the title. Also, it's really good. These words have a double meaning: "Well I don't care if loneliness kills me I don't wanna love somebody else". These lines mean that even though Lysander loves Helena, she doesn't want to love him.

Lysander and Demetrius love Helena

Helena is being loved by two people. Obviously, she'll pick Demetrius but Demetrius and Helena want to fight for her love.
Jefferson Airplane - Triad

Triad by Jefferson Airplane

The song Triad may have a different meaning than the meaning in A Midsummer Night's Dream, yet they show the same meaning. Helena love life is changed magic again but now Demetrius and Lysander both like her. One of the lines that really gets to the point more than any other is "Saying to me--"What can we do now that we both love you".

Helena and Demetrius love each other

Finally, Robin makes Lysander love Hermia again so now the only lover that loves Helena is Demetrius. Helena finally gets the person she wanted so she's pretty happy about it.

when somebody loves you back by teddy pendergrass

The line here that specifically relates to the play is "So good, good lovin' somebody. And somebody loves you back. It's so good needin' somebody. And somebody needs you back".
Emotions - Best Of My Love

best of my love by the emotions

"Never, never will I feel discouraged. 'Cause our love's no mystery." shows that now Helena and Demetrius love each other, Helena is happy again.
Lionel Richie - Endless Love ft. Shania Twain

endless love by lionel richie and diana ross

I think this is the perfect song for when Helena and Demetrius are back together, showing love for each other. The first lines are "My love There's only you in my life The only thing that's bright".
