That’s what I’m keeping, Sam.
And I will cut you right out too if you don’t watch your manners.
The genius of Tom Waits. Ad-libbing with Iggy Pop here in Jim Jarmush’s ‘Coffee and Cigarettes’.
Best part starts at 6:15 when he really starts screwing with Jim. Jimmy. Iggy.
Waits, ‘Walk Away’ from the ‘Dead Man Walking’ ‘not exactly soundtrack more like songs inspired by’ album.
Which is fantastic, by the way. Two Waits’ songs, two Vedder tunes, Springsteen, Suzanne Vega, Johnny Cash, Steve Earle …,
But starting after “Closing Time” seems rather odd.
Maybe because Hootie and the Blowfish once covered ‘I Hope That I Don’t Fall in Love with You?’
Well then. Cookie Monster sings Waits. That’ll do, Thursday.
Tom Waits: “Bad As Me”
You’re the head on the spear
You’re the nail on the cross
You’re the fly in my beer
You’re the key that got lost
Today smells like stale smoke, dried bourbon and wet outerwear. What else could it be but a new Tom Waits single?
New Waits? Day. Made.,
This is simply WRONG.
The correct answer is rye. In a chipped coffee mug or highball glass that has a gas station’s logo on it.
Tom Waits, ‘Jockey Full of Bourbon’ from Rain Dogs.
It’s late. Ergo, Waits.,
And now Waits? Oh, iTunes, you are a joy.
Here’s a song to play at my wake: ‘Time’ from Rain Dogs. I have cried to this song; while drinking, of course.,
Primus and Waits, ‘Tommy the Cat’
I think you’ll agree this is the greatest sonic achievement in the history of American music.,
Tom Waits’ “Closing Time” as I download “Mule Variations,” which somehow I never owned until today.
Just rip my heart out. What a pair of bluesy, crying when you’re drunk, songs.
Tom Waits, “Picture in a Frame”
