T is for… Tom. Tom Waits.

I simply adore Tom Waits. All of his beautiful, crazy work.

I love his experimental stuff, his jazzy stuff, his heart-wrenching ballads, the fact that he was the voice of Tommy the Cat for Primus and the fact that he said in a book I once read (Innocent When You Dream: Tom Waits: The Collected Interviews, by Mac Motandon) that he likes to listen to music when it’s being played in another room, because of the different sounds it creates.

Listen to this and see what you think:

It makes me cry every time I hear it.
