Spotify’s bid to conquer the online music market has made its way into the high modernist consciousness.  Featuring music both from and inspired by Joyce’s work, the James Joyce Spotify Playlist is a collection of 38 songs accessible through the music service.  Selections include Irish standards such as Declan Hunts’ “The Croppy Boy,” the aleatoric experimentation of John Cage’s “Roaratorio: An Irish Circus on Finnegans Wake—Part Four—To End,”  Kate Bush’s recent rendition of Molly Bloom’s soliloquy, and even a remix of Joyce’s reading of the Anna Livia Plurabelle section of The Wake courtesy of DJ Spooky.  The Playlist can be accessed here.
