Madonna's version of /Fever/ has a reference to R & J; also there was an
R&B song maybe 10 years ago that mentions R&J  I think it was titled
"That's What Love Is" and went something like:

Just like Romeo & Juliet
Our love is strong and stronger we'll get
Never had enough
Nothing stronger than this
That's what love is.

Back from SAA and ready to weigh in with mod music. No one has mentioned
yet "The Cinema Show" by Genesis on _Selling England by the Pound_ or a
British group called "Not-Shakespeare."

A recent Eagles song, "Get Over It," includes the lines: "Old Billy was
right/Let's kill all the lawyers...."

On the Indigo Girls' _Rites of Passage_ album:

*In the song "Love will Come to You," the line: "Strength from the milk
of human kindness..."

*In "Virginia Woolf," the song begins "Some will strut and some will
fret, see this, an hour on the stage..."

Somewhere on the Spin Doctors first big album:

"I'm quite contented to take my chances,
With all the Guildensterns and Rosencrantzes..."

Please let us know if we can take a peek at the final list.  I'd love to
have a copy for future classes.

Cheers,
Heather
