Romeo and Juliet (SparkNotes Literature Guide Series)
Baz Luhrmann 's garish, flamboyant adaptation of Romeo + Juliet was hyper-kinetic and colorful, boasting a heavy inspiration from the visual style of MTV, so it's only appropriate that the soundtrack was tailored for the alternative nation that MTV fostered. Combining modern rock acts like Garbage , Radiohead , the Cardigans , and the Butthole Surfers with contemporary soul like Des'ree and adult alternative like Gavin Friday , the album is slick, polished, catchy -- and surprisingly strong. Though the soul and pop is good, the alternative rock acts on the soundtrack fare the best, with Garbage and Radiohead both contributing excellent B-sides ("Number One Crush" and "Talk Show Host," respectively), with the Cardigans ' sleek, sexy lounge-disco number "Lovefool" stealing the show.
No Fear Shakespeare puts Shakespeare's language side-by-side with a facing-page translation into modern English—the kind of English people actually speak today.
