Time for another anthem contender.

A little known fact about yours truly is that (among other strange predilections) I'm a chronic Shakespeare aficionado, and one of my favourite productions ever is Baz Luhrmann's 1996 film Romeo + Juliet. It's simply brilliant, conveying Elizabethan perceptions of 'those fiery Mediterraneans' better than anything I've ever seen. Sure the purists have issues with it, but I couldn't care less.

... and damn but it's a beautiful looking picture!

You, an aficionado of Shakespeare? With your choice of blog names, who wudda guessed.

I see why you like the song. But I liked Zefferelli's movie better, and West Side Story, for that matter.
