Poldy's iPod: music in Ulysses

The following is a complete-as-possible list of musical allusions in James Joyce’s Ulysses. The allusions are named in the order they appear in the novel, with youtube links. This list relies heavily on Gifford and Zack Bowen (and includes for completeness many poems that probably never had tunes). The goal with the links is to find the most authentic version of each available-- a moving target. (Versions by John McCormack get a free pass.)
