Macbeth the musical

19 May

When my year 10 students and I explored Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 I set a series of extension activities that sought to link key moments in the novel with unrelated songs (see here).  Many of my students really enjoyed it.  So much so, I am keen to do the same thing, this time with Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

The problem is, I am struggling to come up with a list of songs that relate to the play.  The list so far is below.  If you have any other suggestions, please let me know in the comments.

The list thus far:

  • ‘I knew you were trouble’ by Taylor Swift – Macbeth thinking about the consequences of sharing the prophecies with Lady Macbeth.
  • ‘I want it all’ by Queen – Lady Macbeth as she outlines her reasons for killing King Duncan.
