    Connect being works (poem, short story+ short story collection and album respectively) called “I Sing The Body Electric”. The latter two lifted their titles from the Whitman poem.

  7. The poet is Walt Whitman, the author is Ray Bradbury and the band is Weather Report.

    Walt Whitman wrote the poem I Sing the Body Electric which inspired Ray Bradbury to write a story of the same name. I guess Weather Report’s album I Sing the Body Electric is also inspired from one of the two.
