"Juliet of the Spirits"

"Juliet of the Spirits" is a song recorded by The B-52s. It is the second single from the band's eighth full-length studio album, Funplex.[1] A digital single and remix were released on September 9, 2008.[2]

The song was inspired by the film Juliet of the Spirits (Italian: Giulietta degli spiriti), a 1965 surrealist drama about an Italian housewife directed by Federico Fellini. The song's lyrics project themes of sexual liberation and awakening.

Although the song only features the vocals of female singers Cindy Wilson and Kate Pierson, the band has noted that Fred Schneider was a driving force behind the lyrics.[citation needed] The music was written by the band's guitarist Keith Strickland.
