Ultimate Playlist #269: Romeo and Juliet

Originally written and performed by Dire Straits, Romeo and Juliet is a song about woman who dumps her boyfriend once she becomes too famous. The song is from brokenhearted Romeo’s point of view.

With all due respect to Dire Strait, this raw scream of emotion is one of the best covers ever recorded.

Matt Nathanson also a very good, albeit subdued cover of this song.
