Madness and Chocolate

Jimi has introduced me to many, many things I may have never found on my own.  Tom Waits is on that list.

Something about Tom Waits - does anyone like him the first time they hear him?  His voice is so gruff and rough and scabby and dry and scratchy, and his words...his words are fucked up, yo.

And you'll die with the rose still on your lips
And in time the heart-shaped bone that was your hips
And the worms, they will climb the rugged ladder of your spine
We're all mad here

Fucked up, but I love it.

Well I don't want no Abba Zabba
Don't want no Almond Joy
There ain't nothing better
Suitable for this boy
Well it's the only thing
That can pick me up
Better than a cup of gold
See only a chocolate Jesus
Can satisfy my soul

Once again, I am in awe and appreciation of the power of the internet.

  1. OHHHH Tom, love, love. He was my first red head crush when I was growing up.


Please don't make me cry.
