Hate and Love (Catullus 85)

July 4, 2013 7:44 PM

A song based on Catullus 85 ("I hate and I love ...")

A song based on Catullus 85, which in the original Latin reads:

Odi et amo. Quare id faciam, fortasse requiris?
Nescio, sed fieri sentio et excurcior.

Which translates as:

I love and I hate. How am I able to do this, you may ask?
I do not know, but I feel it to be happening and I am tortured.

I came up with the idea a few weeks ago, and so asked on AskMeFi to make sure I remembered how to say the poem aloud in Latin (even though almost all of the song is in English). However, because I wanted to do the song for the 50/90 Challenge, I put it all together yesterday and today.
