Shakespearean Confidence.

Daily Create #tdc1380 was called ‘Shakespearean Actors Day!’ and asked that we record ourselves speaking some song lyrics in a Shakespearean style. I decided to do an extract from Demi Lovato’s ‘Confident‘ as it it a song I have listened to quite a bit recently and relate to a lot.

These are the words I used;

“This is my game
And you better come to play.

I used to hold my freak back
Now I’m letting go
I make my own choice
Yeah I run this show.”

This reminded me very much of the viral challenge #15SecondShakespeare where people read 15 seconds of pop song lyrics in Shakespearean style. It caught on to various celebrities who often challenged other celeb friends to get involved.

A personal favourite was by Karen Gillan;

An awesome article where you can see more #15SecondShakespeare’s is on Mashable here.

    Very well enunciated! I like that you pulled in some outside info for this assignment as well, it does a good job putting the assignment. Also a very good job finding lyrics that contrast with the time period, but not necessarily with the tone.
