Friday Links...

A few random Sylvia Plath links to pass on today...

Moby has a song entitled "Victoria Lucas" on a e.p. released recently. Watch the video & listen to the song on YouTube or via Moby’s website. The video is quite Plathian, or, should I say Lucasian.

While you are at it, perhaps you will want to download all these songs with Sylvia Plath in the title from Amazon.com’s MP3 Download site...

Interesting Plath news out of Taipei, Taiwan “Taiwanese theater troupe invited to perform in France.”

And from earlier this month, with thanks to Jescie, we have this from the Lisa Simpson Book Club.

"Wish I Had a Sylvia Plath" has found its way to Los Angeles, according to Los Angeles Broadwayworld.com. The play opens March 12, 2011 with reception to follow. Performances are Thursdays-Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 7pm (No performances Thursdays March 10th & 17th).

I apologise to the composer but this sample made me burst out laugh

There's a great song by Paul Westerberg (of the Replacements) called Crackle and Drag (get the reference?) about Sylvia. Most music searches don't generate it as a Plath-song as she isn't directly mentioned but you should definitely check it out Peter! I think you'd like it:) My friends like to play it for me when I have one too many whiskies:)

Apologies for the double comment but I also thought I should share this link with you: a friend-of-a-friend's band from Galway, Ireland have a song called Esther Greenwood. You might like to have a listen - it's actually one of my favourite Plath songs even though the band aren't actually signed! :)

Melanie, I agree, the clip is a bit startling!

Maeve, thanks for the link to "Esther Greenwood" and no need to apologize for a double comment. They are always welcome. I had heard about Paul Westerberg's song, and may have even heard it, but likely this was many moons ago...

I find it interesting that you posted a link for all of the Sylvia Plath songs. I am specifically researching this topic for my Honors thesis and will be presenting the paper at a symposium in May! I would very much like to submit it for the next volume of Plath Profiles when I finish!
