Act 4, Scene 1
The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet
"Thinking of You" by Katy Perry
I chose the song "Thinking of You" by Katy Perry because the lovelorn tone and lyrics of the song match Juliet's feelings in this scene very well. Specifically the chorus is spot-on in expressing Juliet's feelings, saying, "'Cause when I'm with him/I am thinking of you/Thinking of you/What would you do if/You were the one/Who was spending the night/ Oh I wish that I/ Was looking into your eyes" In this scene, Juliet's biggest wish is to leave Paris ('Cause when I'm with him/ I am thinking of you) and go be with Romeo as a wife should (What would you do if/ You were the one/ Who was spending the night/ Oh I wish that I/ Was looking into your eyes). In addition, the lyrics, "Oh won't you walk through/And bust in the door/And take me away" express what Juliet wishes beyond hope what Romeo would do: bust in and take her away so they can live happily ever after.
