I adore Tom Waits. Some of my favorite Wait’s songs include I Hope That I Don’t Fall In Love With You, What’s He Building in There?, That’s the Way and Green Grass. Grab the songs, a drink and let your head spin.
“Thomas Alan “Tom” Waits (born December 7, 1949) is an American singer-songwriter, composer, and actor. Waits has a distinctive voice, described by critic Daniel Durchholz as sounding “like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car.” With this trademark growl, his incorporation of pre-rock music styles such as blues, jazz, and vaudeville, and experimental tendencies verging on industrial music, Waits has built up a distinctive musical persona.” – Wikipedia
