Dire Straits recorded a popular live version for their album On The Night. Knopfler's voice hits every note with such passion that I never get tired of this fine arrangement. Also note that the Romeo and Juliet on this song on the balcony are having a strained relationship, while Shakespeare's R + J are on the balcony at the beginning of their relationship. All in all, a great song. James from Westchester, EnglandThe live version of this has a great feel. Katie from Melbourne, AustraliaIndigo Girls did a great cover of this song on their 1992 album Rites of Passage. The vocals by Amy Ray are amazing - full of passion
