Artists come in many forms, and Alex Genadinik, known professionally as SHAKESPEAREAN RHAPSODY, draws inspiration from literature, particularly the works of William Shakespeare. By deconstructing Shakespeare’s works and finding his most iconic ideas and quotes, Alex transforms them into melodies that resonate with book lovers. We have to give it to him for his uniqueness and ability to challenge the status quo in his artistry, which oozes authenticity and ingenuity. He just wants you to get completely lost in the music as the melodies wash over you and the lyrics transport you to another dimension because, at the end of the day, there is nothing as powerful as music.
Well, many of you are familiar with one of Shakespeare’s most famous romantic plays, Romeo and Juliet, and if not, you might want to explore its timeless allure—this world has much to offer through Shakespeare’s lens!
Has it ever crossed your mind, even casually or absent-mindedly, what would have happened if this couple, regarded as archetypal young lovers, had lived on? Would their love have flourished, or would it have succumbed to inescapable fate or the harsh realities that often dawn on lovers as they grow older, reflecting on the notion that it might have been a naive first love with inevitable heartbreak?
With this track, Alex lets this thought hang in the air, perhaps expecting a listener to imagine their own answer. Shakespeare’s dramatic structure propels this song as it progresses, changing at the end to a poignant, mellow, and melancholy melody and rhythm.
The song is catchy and upbeat, with an unmistakable rock vibe and stunning lyrics that highlight actual quotes from Shakespeare’s play. The accompanying music video is top-notch and a high-caliber complement to this ingenious jam.
