i have not been here long, but since i have been here i have not seen a thread for tom waits. He is my all time favorite, every album he puts out is a classic. Listen to Rain Dogs and your life will be changed

WOO! first a topic on brazil and now this. i'm regaining my respect for you xixaxers.

tom waits is my favourite musician ever and i love ALL his albums, favorites must be swordfishthrombones, rain dogs and franks wild years but everything else is gold too. his latest three albums have all been masterpieces in my oppinion especially alice. i would die to see one of those wilson plays.

Me and 'Phil Marlowe' have had your share of whishey and Tom Waits. No, seriously I love this guy. I wouldn't say I'm a fan, cause I don't like all his work. Some of it is a little too....spooky. My favorites would be 'Small Change', 'Mule Variations' and 'Swordfish Trombone'.

Hey check out 'Iron Weed' it's a really cool film. Waits and Nicholson are both really great.

Yes!!!! The WAITS...!

Love the guy. Love him. So sad, yet so funny. One of the greatest voices you can possibly hear. I think Small Change is my favourite album, with The Piano Has Been Drinking (Not Me) being one of my favourite songs of all time.
Oh, the blues, the blues, the whisky-soaked, crooked-smile, lazy tune, heart-rending, smoke-filled, beautiful blues...

Would Woyzek be one of the ones you're talking about? I saw it in London: superb. At one point they had a mechanical monkey singing in Tom's voice - magic...!
"Should I bring my own chains?"
"We always do..."

YES! ahh voyzeck...i remember wanting to see it sooo bad but nobody wanted to go with me and i didn't really wanted to go alone. i remember it getting crazy reviews, the critics really loved it. other wilson(is that his name???) would be the black rider and alice and more i guess. the next one will be premiering in denmark so i'm psyked.

I picked up 'Small Change' for 3 bucks at a used CD shop and was very happy with it.  That is the only Tom I am familiar with.

I think that maybe my favorite two Tom Waits songs are "Alice" and "The World Keeps Turning" from "Pollock.
"You're too kind."
-Richard Roeper

"You're too cruel."
-Roger Ebert

I'm just getting into Waits and man, I fucking love him.

I'm not yet in the position to name favourite songs and albums but I just ordered Rain dogs and Swordfishtrombones.

There is something poetic about his music and voice...it gets under my skin and into my heart.

Doesn't happen too often.

I fecking love Tom Waits.  Some people I know say he has the worst voice and then they proceeded to laugh. I didn't let it get to me though because I know I have superior taste.  :wink:
