The Sensual World
Belated Bloomsday thoughts reminded me of a Kate Bush tune. I have it on reliable authority that "The Sensual World" is based on Molly Bloom's soliloquy at the end of Ulysses though I should confess off the top here that I have never read the book. Bush' version is inspired by the piece rather than a strait quote as she was reportedly refused permission to go ahead by the Joyce estate. Jon Drukman and Jenn Turney recorded a fan version of the song using Joyce' original words. The slightly wobbly mp3 can be found here.
