Julius Caesar: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Your assignment as a group is to create a soundtrack to your movie version of Julius Caesar.

Your finished project must include:

  • At least two songs per act (so AT LEAST ten songs total)
  • Cover illustration for your CD with a track listing for your soundtrack
  • For each song, you must include the following: a. Title and Artist/Composer b. Lyrics c. One – paragraph explaining WHY this is a good song for the act/play
  • All written information must be typed or neatly written in blue or black ink.

For extra credit: You and your group will present this information to class. You must create the actual CD and play it for the class while explaining why the songs fit with the play.

  • Remember, if you create the CD, you must have the CD case, along with the cover art and track listing inside the case! You may put the lyrics with explanation on a separate sheet if they won’t fit in your CD case.
