If you've ever been asked to memorize a Shakespearean phrase, let alone an entire soliloquy, you're aware of what a feat it can be, but luckily, Courtney Welbon's 'To Be, or Not to Be' song is here to provide some assistance.

When faced with the task of remembering Hamlet's infamous soliloquy for her English class, Courtney picked up her ukulele and decided to set the lines to music. The result is an incredibly catchy and lovely track, at just under four minutes long. While the melody itself might not embody the sentiments of the soliloquy, it definitely makes memorizing the words much easier, and the flow even allows for an easier understanding of Billy Shakespeare's work, for those new to it.

As a fan of both Shakespeare and ukulele song covers, Courtney Welbon's To Be, or Not to Be song is impossible to resist. Stats for Hipster Shakespeare Adaptations Trending: Older & Mild
