Having just gone through the Captain Beefheart thread, here goes the Tom Waits thread. I will assume that most posters will be fans of almost anything he does, so this is going to be real gun-to-the-head stuff:
Favorite songs (limit to the top FIVE ONLY, UNLESS you can’t leave THAT one out and still live with yourself).
Either favorite or most important/seminal/influential album, or both.
(Actually not so gun-to-the-head, really).
Explanations and/or insane ramblings are encouraged.
16 Shells from a Thirty-Ought Six
Gun Street Girl
Get Behind the Mule (must…not…violate…own…rule…and…put…Chocolate Jesus)
Hell Broke Luce
Favorite: Mule Variations
Most important: Swordfishtrombones
Let the mayhem begin.
