Most big name singers are held back by the idiosyncrasies of the GOAT of songwriting Tom Waits. They are afraid to take them on but not Rod. He done some job too

Downtown Train.

Waits deciding to make a few bucks for himself.

Tom Traubert’s Blues came on the Spotify machine as I was leaving the gym this morning. I hadn’t heard it in years. I was running late with kids to dress, breakfasts to make, Lunches and swimming gear to sort but I sat in the car and listened till the end. What a fucking song. One of the greatest last lines of all time

And goodnight to the street sweepers
The night watchman flame keepers and goodnight, Mathilda too

A bit of Tom Waits when you are in the right mood can soothe a man’s soul and make him want to be a better person.

@maroonandwhite. I love you man.

I fucking cancelled spotify yesterday thinking the ‘have it half price for a few months instead’ message would eventually pop up. Mugged off.
