What are some songs that can relate to Romeo and Juliet?

I need SIX (6) songs that can accord to different themes for Romeo and Juliet.
The six themes are:
– The street fight in Act I
– Capulet party
– Juliet’s theme song
– Balcony scene and / or marriage
– Fight scene for Romeo/Tybalt/Mercutio
– Death scene for Romeo and Juliet

Please, do not recommend Love Story by Taylor Swift. I am aware of that song and I do not think it would accord to any of the themes that I am required. The same goes for Romeo and Juliet by any artist (i.e. Dire Straits, Killers), and Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult.
Please, do not tell me any songs off the DiCaprio version, those are not permitted either.

      Settle Down- Cartel for Juliet’s theme?:
      "They were the poster perfect high school sweethearts,
      But moving out can’t erase the time.
      The two had spent on working it out and
      Everybody knew that they were out of their minds."

      I knew I loved You- Savage Garden for the party or marriage

      The Way- Clay Aiken for the party or marriage once again

      Better Part of Valor- Houston Calls for the death scene or Juliet’s theme- I think this a really good one for Romeo and Juliet as a whole

      A Dustland Fairtyale- The Killers – Kind of fits anywhere. Maybe death scene. Talks about you then proceeds to how it deteriorates. "I saw the devil wrapping up his hands, he’s getting ready for the showdown…"

      That’s all I can think of for now. A lot of them are interchangeable so you can use them in more than one place. Hope I helped!
