Never Give up

Helena's Journey Through the Land of Love


The theme throughout Midsummer Night's Dream explains how love can be complicated and very hard to go through, especially since you can't control it. But if you never give up, you will get through the obstacles and be united with your true love in the end.
Just In Love - Joe Jonas Lyrics HQ

TRACK ONE: Just in Love by Joe Jonas

The part where Joe Jonas says, " Girl, I'm just in love with you. No other words to use." I feel like this is what Demetrius says to Helena before the play even started, when they were both in love. This song very clearly portrays that relationship. They are both in love with each other and are very happy with it. This is the part that he makes all the promises to Hermia that he will end up breaking.
Taylor Swift Today Was a Fairytale Lyrics

TRACK TWO: Today Was a Fairytale by Taylor Swift

In this song, Taylor Swift describes all these picture perfect moments with her lover but then says that it was a fairytale. Helena will definitely listen to this song the night that Demetrius stops loving her after he sees the beautiful Hermia. This song portrays a perfect day that Helena would spend with Demetrius when they were in love, but the night changes so quickly that it feels like that day was a fairytale.
Austin Mahone - What About Love

TRACK THREE: What About Love by Austin Mahone

Austin Mahone, in the chorus says, "What about love? What about our promises?" I feel like these are the two questions that Helena asks in one of her monologues. These questions give a sense of desperation for getting Demetrius. All she needs are the answers to these questions, but he can't give them to her.
Selena Gomez - The Heart Wants What it Wants (Lyrics On Screen)

TRACK FOUR: The Heart Wants What It Wants by Selena Gomez

"There's a million reasons why I should give you up. But the heart wants what it wants." The message that Selena Gomez tries to get at in this song is that no matter how her love treats her, she will always love him. This relates to Helena because when Demetrius falls in love with Hermia, he treats Helena like she is a nobody. But no matter how much she hates the way Demetrius treats her, she still persists with her love for him.
Selena Gomez & The Scene - A Year Without Rain

TRACK FIVE: A Year Without Rain by Selena Gomez

"A day without you is like a year without rain." This one line from the song kind of explains Helena's obsession with Demetrius. When she isn't with him, there is an emptiness that she can only fill when he is there. This is definitely a song that Helena would sing when she isn't near Demetrius.
Justin Bieber - That Should Be Me ft. Rascal Flatts

TRACK SIX: That Should Be Me by Justin Bieber

This song is all about jealousy. "That should be me" is exactly what Helena thinks when she sees how Demetrius looks at Hermia, wishing she was in that spot. This is a song that Helena would sing to herself, telling herself that for Demetrius she isn't good enough.
One Direction - Taken ( Lyrics + Pictures )

TRACK SEVEN: Taken by One Direction

This song explains how when you wanted another person, they would leave you in the dirt. And when you FINALLY move on, they suddenly want you back. And you don't believe them one bit. This is how Helena feels when Demetrius falls prey to the flower's juice.
Two Steps From Hell - After the fall (female voice)

TRACK EIGHT: After The Fall by Two Steps From Hell

This song doesn't have any words, but I think the way the music is played, it symbolizes getting back up after you fall. Helena's relationship with Demetrius went down hill ever since he started loving Hermia. But this song represents the time when they are back together in the end "after the fall". This is a happy time for Helena, but she doesn't know what is in store for her
Always Be Together- Little Mix (LYRICS, PICS, NAMES)

TRACK NINE: Always Be Together by Little Mix

This is a song that I think Demetrius and Helena will both sing as a duet together when they are reunited as a couple because of the magic at the end of the story. This is after Helena gets over thinking that the whole thing was a joke.
Christina Perri - A Thousand Years [Official Music Video]

TRACK TEN: A Thousand Years by Christina Perri

This is way in the future, after the end of the play. This is when Helena and Demetrius are finally together. In love. Everything perfect. This song is their Happily Ever After. "I have loved you for a thousand years. I'll love you for a thousand more.

You will get there in the end.

Throughout the story, Helena persisted with her love. She was in pain to see Demetrius loving Hermia. She kept following him. She got her true love in the end. Even though Shakespeare doesn't say so, they live the rest of their lives together in peace.
