Sarah Rowley is a passionate classicist who runs the Latin Rocks On
Twitter account, translating popular song lyrics into Latin, from Marvin Gaye
to Madonna, Take Th at to Taylor Swift . Latin may have earned an unfair
reputation for being somewhat inaccessible.

With Latin Rocks On Sarah’s mission is to bring the language to new
audiences in a more accessible and innovative way. Her Twitter account has
followers from all over the world who love to test their knowledge and guess
the correct songs. Sarah also volunteers at the charity Classics for All, which
raises funds to enable more schools across the UK to study Classics. She works
in communications in healthcare technology.

quod tu velis, cara, id habeo… quod tu requiras, scisne quomodo ego id
acceperim? rogo modo… paucam reverentiam.

What you want… Baby I got. (ooo) What you need (ooo) Do you know how I
got it? All I’m asking for.. is a little respect.

Aretha Franklin, Respect

ego debeo habere fidem, ego debeo habere fidem. care, scio te rogare me
ut maneam. dic, quaeso quaeso quaeso – noli abire!

‘Cause I gotta have faith, I gotta have faith. Baby! I know you’re
asking me to stay. Say please please please don’t go away!

George Michael, Faith

tu es saltans regina, iuvenis et dulcis, modo septemdecim. saltans
regina! senti modum tympani…

You are the dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen. Dancing
queen! Feel the beat from the tambourine…

Abba, Dancing Queen

est haec vita vera? est simpliciter somnium? captivus in vortice non
fugio a realitate..!

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide, no
escape from reality…!

Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody

ego sum vir missilis…et ego credo id futurum esse diu.

I’m a rocket man…and I think it’s gonna be a long, long time.Elton John, Rocket Man
