Here's some more:

Laurie Anderson's 'Blue Lagoon' from the Gravity's Angel-album mixes The
Tempest and Moby Dick in a passage that starts off 'Full fathom five thy
father lies... and ends '...call me Ishmael'.

There may also be a reference to Macbeth in The Fall's* Elves* but I
could never work out the lyrics and I blame it on Mark E. Smith's
idiosyncratic singing. I'd suspect there should be something in Bauhaus,
too. They did this catchy tune on Artaud.

Eckart Voigts-Virchow

Try The Sin Doctors, "Cleopatra's Cat", and then of course, there's Dire
Straits' "Romeo and Juliet"

Cheers
