There is a design, an alignment
A cry of my heart to see
The beauty of love as it was made to be
~Sigh No More
Lyrics inspired by or from books and plays today. So many choices! I shared some Wuthering Heights songs and David Gilmour singing Sonnet 18 a while back. This Poetry Friday, we have two Shakespeare, two Daphne du Maurier, one C.S. Lewis, and one Gregory Maguire (L. Frank Baum).
Mumford and Sons: Sigh No More (lines from Much Ado about Nothing by Shakespeare)
MC Lars: Hey There Ophelia (Hamlet)
Tori Amos: Jamaica Inn (inspired by the book of the same name by Daphne du Maurier)
Meg and Dia: Rebecca (also by Daphne du Maurier)
Phish: Prince Caspian
Kristin Chenoweth: Popular from Wicked (a musical inspired by a book inspired by a book)
