QUIZ: Is This a Shakespeare Quote or a Lana Del Rey Lyric?

You might think I’m exaggerating the cultural significance of the latter by comparing her to the former, but try and tell me you didn’t have a religious experience the first time you ever heard “Blue Jeans.” Go ahead. I’ll wait.

With that in mind, can you tell a Shakespeare line from a Lana Del Ray lyric?
