On the other hand, the song explains how one should be ready to love each other forever without any regrets. One should stick to the other by not looking at their negative areas, but by remaining true to each other and ready to address any kind of problem faced. The symbolism used in the song includes the nature of conversation and hard work to show some of the issues which should not result in painful experiences whenever in a relationship (Shakespeare 63). One should not be forced to change the color of the hair or try new fashions. This is symbolic of the nature of a person. One should never be forced to fake her personality so that the love affair can last. Basically, the song by Billy Joel “Just The Way You Are” and William Shakespeare’s “My Mistress' Eyes Are Nothing Like the Sun” present similar subjects therefore helping the people in relationships to relate well and live together by coping with each other’s weaknesses and strengths. This is the only trick towards a true and long-lasting life.
2. Chicago May Day '86: organize "religious" procession for Haymarket "Martyrs"--huge banners with sentimental portraits, wreathed in flowers & streaming with tinsel & ribbon, borne by penitenti in black KKKatholic-style hooded gowns--outrageous campy TV acolytes with incense & holy water sprinkle the crowd--anarchists w/ash-smeared faces beat themselves with little flails & whips--a "Pope" in black robes blesses tiny symbolic coffins reverently carried to Cemetery by weeping punks. Such a spectacle ought to offend nearly everyone .
