Love and Conflict come hand in hand
Theme: Love and Conflict comes together
Shakespeare shows that love and conflict are attached in Midsummer's night's dream through Oberon & Titania. Oberon tricks Titania throughout the play. He argues with her and humiliates her by making her love a donkey. Shakespeare also proves his point by showing the conflict between Hermia, Helena, Lysander, and Demetrius. Helena loved Demetrius and Demetrius loved her until Hermia comes along, when the first signs of conflict attached to Love appears. Demetrius then abandons Helena and mistreats her. He chases after Hermia even when Lysander and Hermia are already in love. The second appearance of conflict appears with Hermia's dad trying to make Hermia marry Demetrius, the man she doesn't love. Hermia then escapes into the fairy forest with Lysander. Oberon then sprays Titania with magical love juice that he then sprays on several of the lovers, causing even more conflict. Things eventually sort out, but their love was hard earned through much conflict.

Track 1: "I Knew I Loved You" By Savage Garden
Oberon would connect to this song in the part before Midsummer's night's Dream. The Play doesn't tell what happens before, but Oberon and Titania had to have met and fell in love, and this song portrays that accurately. The line " I knew I loved you before I met you" portrays this nicely, summing up how Oberon and Titania loved each other, possibly even before they were married.
The Beatles - Words Of Love
Track 2: "Words of Love" by The Beatles
After the initial stage of Oberon and Titania just falling love, they get married. This song shows it very well, especially the line "Words of love you whisper soft and true, Darling I love you" by stating that Oberon and Titania love each other. However, It may be in this phase that they start arguing because as soon as Midsummer's nights Dream, they instantly start arguing, and this song doesn't have anything to do with that.

Track 4: "Faint" by Linkin Park
After Oberon and Titania temporarily separated, they were angry(angry enough to make their partner fall in love with a donkey). A line from the song that portrays their situation well is " I won't be ignored" because after Oberon and Titania had their argument, they ignored each other. However, unlike the song, they didn't want to be noticed by the other.
Hozier - Take Me To Church - Lyrics
Track 5: "Take Me to Church" by Hozier
This song sounds sad and guilt-full to me, like Oberon must have felt after he mixed up the lovers and applied Magic Flower Juice thing to them, messing up their lives. Other then that, however, this song doesn't really apply to Oberon.
Somebody's Watching Me w/ lyrics (Geico)
Track 6: "Somebody's watching me" by Rockwell
Hermia, Helena, Lysander, and Demetrius were all affected by Oberon in the woods. Oberon was watching them and sometimes interacting, similarly to the line in the song, "I always feel like somebody's watching me".

Track 7: "Safety Dance" by Men without Hats
After Oberon cleaned everything up, he must have felt very festive. In fact, He even starts dancing with Titania. This song is a very happy sounding song, and the line "We can leave your friends behind" made me think that Oberon may have heard this song and recalled when he left Titania, or his "friend" behind.

When Oberon and Titania were dancing at the end, they felt very happy, similarly to this song. This song has no lyrics, like when Oberon and Titania were dancing they were so happy without restraint(similar to lyrics).
I Can't Stop Loving You by Ray Charles
Track 9: "I can't stop loving you" by Ray Charles
After Oberon fixed his problems, he and Titania got together again. This song is about Love, which fits nicely into Oberon's story. There is one line in the song that that fits together with them separating then getting back together. The line is "They say that time heals a broken heart, but time has stood still since we've been apart". Also, This song has a note of finality to it with the "I Can't Stop Loving You" and all.
Beatles She Loves You (With Lyrics)
Track 10: "She Loves You" by the Beatles
Similar to the last song, this one is at the same chronological order. It is also about Love. Thsi one is differenct, though, and you can tell through the line "You think you lost your love" and "She said you hurt you so". These lyrics fit into Oberon's story very snugly.
