Thursday Youtube - Tom Waits edition

Spinner recently gave folks a first listen to Scarlett Johansson covering Tom Waits' "Falling Down." Unsurprisingly, her version is nowhere near up to par compared to his original. It kind of sounds like Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U." I don't mean that in a good way. Perhaps it's unfair to compare them, but she chose the tune. Unfortunately, there's no Youtube available for the only studio track from Waits' 1988 album Big Time. Go steal it off the internet if you've never heard the classic. That got me craving more Waits tracks, so today I give you videos for two of his most atmospheric songs. Please to be enjoying!
