Wait For Me

So, I am a big Tom Waits fan.

I will be honest – I have only really gotten into him in the last 3-4 years or so.  I don’t claim to know his entire catalog yet (seriously, its extensive and will take me several more years to really get deep into all of his work), but I would say I am more than just a casual listener.  I find it hard to explain why I like him without falling back on ‘I like it because its weird and different’ but I think it has more to do with his storytelling style.  If you don’t know much of his music, be aware: his music jumps from beautifully lyrical to downright bizarre.

Even trying to decide which video of his to post is a daunting task.  His most accessible album is probably either The Heart of Saturday Night or his newest release, Bad As Me.  But since my current ‘favorite’ (if you can pick one) is probably Swordfishtrombones, I will just throw one from that album on here and hope that you find it as appealing as I do.
