There are loads of songs about Romeo and Juliet! The Shakespeare play is often said to be the greatest love story of all time, so it’s no wonder so many artists have chosen to write songs about the couple.

Some songs mention Romeo and Juliet by name, and others just use the tragic romance as a theme. Here are a few of the most popular ones:

  • Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straits
  • Love Story by Taylor Swift
  • Romeo and Juliet by The Killers (cover of the Dire Straits song)
  • Romeo and Juliet by Toybox
  • Hey Juliet by LMNT
There are plenty more out there, but these are probably the most relevant!

Don’t Fear The Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult also mentions Romeo and Juliet, but it’s not really about them. There are lots of songs that do this – just keep looking!

There’s also Lovefool by The Cardigans, which featured on the soundtrack for Baz Lurhmann’s Romeo + Juliet. Hope this helps!

Bulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, Pigs Get Slaughtered by Chiodos - "Did my heart love until now, cause it feels as though I've never seen beauty till this night, I'm forever yours" is a play on a line from the play.
