I sing the body electric.

Easily one of my favorite songs, from the instrumentation to the lyrics.

Not sure how the composer got inspiration from Walt Whitmans poem of the same name, but apparently he did. It was an awkward poem to develop a thesis for a critical analysis on because it was all about the sensuality of the human body and I was a teenager at a Mormon school where thinking about anything beyond your clothes made Heavenly Father sad.
Poetry = art.
Viva Bohemia.

It's also the name of a well known episode of The Twilight Zone.
