I've been hearing some real crappy covers of some real great Tom Waits songs lately.
At work a few nights ago, I heard for the first time Rod Stewart's cover of Waits's "Downtown Train". To say that the Waits version is better is an understatement of such astronomical proportions that the very idea of Rod Stewart being bmore commercially successful with the song makes me feel . . . well, it's another thing that makes me feel like my brain's from a different dimension.
I did hear an Elvis Costello song ("Veronica") at work the next night, so that kinna made up for it.
Anyway, I gotta go to work now, speaking of. I leave you with a new page of Doll Merchant.
