Seven Degrees of Hamlet

You’ve heard of “Seven Degrees to Kevin Bacon,” right? Well, we’ve been playing this game for months in my class, but as “Seven Degrees of Hamlet.”

Every other week we do a “song raffle” and do an analysis over whatever song is randomly chosen. At the end of the activity, I always ask them to connect it back to “Hamlet,” which sometimes stumps them… but I’ve taken it as a personal challenge.

And now I’m pleased to announce that, just as with Kevin Bacon, I am a Seven Degrees of Hamlet in Song champion, most recently evidenced by connecting “Livin’ on a Prayer” back to the dearest of danes.
