Sing It Out: Initial and Final.
“Kick off your shoes, Ay Oahh Ay Oahh!” The song “Check Yes Juliet” by We the Kings contains allusions to Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare. The song depicts the love story and does a good job comparing the song to the story.
"Check Yes Juliet" illistrates the love story Romeo and Juliet. It mainly focuses on the two lovers running away so that they can freely be together. In the story Romeo and Juliet are not allowed to be together because their families are enemies so they must run away in order to be together. In the song the narrator is convincing the girl to run away with him by saying, "Run, baby, run/ Don't ever look back/ they'll tear us apart/ If you give them the chance." It depicts the book in an effective way.
The allusion in this story is pretty accurate. The narrator of the song says, "Just sneak out/ And don't tell a soul good bye." That is exactly what Romeo and Juliet's plan is. He also says that he will throw rocks at her window and wait for her to come outside, which is kind of like what Romeo said to Juliet. Instead of throwing rocks he climbed to her balcony, and instead of waiting for her to come out, he went in. The song portrays the story perfectly. Almost exactly the same.
In conclusion, "Check Yes Juliet" by We The Kings is based on a story by William Shakespeare called Romeo and Juliet. They compare very well and the song illistrates the story effectively and correctly.
