One Way to Memorize the Famous Hamlet Soliloquy: Turn It Into a Song [Video]


In case you were faced with the high school English class task of memorizing the famous “To be, or not to be” monologue from William Shakespeare‘s Hamlet, here is one solution: find a ukelele, learn how to play it, acquire musical talent and a lovely singing voice, and turn it into a song! Or just memorize Courtney Welbon‘s version, the melody of which, she admits, does not exactly match the tone of Hamlet’s soliloquy, in which he ponders whether or not to kill himself in light of all the death and sorrow that has been taking place.
