One of his best, definitely - Cyrobian
Whats to say
Love this song. It's my alarm song to wake up to, but I change it in my mind " I Don't Wanna Wake Up! "
Best Tom song in my opinion, and I've heard them all
One of my favorites from the first album. Gives you a glimpse on what direction Tom went latter on.
Strange, but really good.
Most emotional, poignant song he ever wrote. Beautifully delivered. Such evocative lyrics and devastingly sad conclusion to the song. I cry every time I listen to it
One of my favorites from Bone Machine. He wrote it with the help of Keith Richards. - Gg2000
This song is absolutely sad and gutting. He's right; it's love, not bricks and wood, that makes a house a home. - Gg2000
In this song, Tom Waits appears to be teaching a class about insects and their disgusting habits, until he reveals that the insects he's discussed are commonly known as humans. - Gg2000
This song is actually really funny; it's his indictment of advertising. - Gg2000
Kinda like The Piano Has Been Drinking in the sense that he's addressing his alcoholism but not being serious about it. - Gg2000
