Came to this thread to post a Tom Waits song, and it's the third or fourth one :P Some artists just understand pain











Pretty much the whole Either/Or album is depressing as hell.



There's a lot of music that don't listen to very often these days, because it's not the mental place that I am, or want to be, thankfully.

Sometimes it's hard to say, is it sad? Thoughtful? Melancholic? Deep?

Fred Eaglesmith 'Cigarette Machine' (and Mary Gauthier's version live)
Mary Gauthier 'Can't Find the Way'
Mulehead 'Josephine'
Chris Knight 'North Dakota'
George Jones 'Just One More'
Cracker 'Big Dipper'
Bottle Rockets 'Smokin 100s Alone'
NQ Arbuckle 'Song for Kathleen O'Hara'

Gotta stop somewhere. Thanks for the thread!

The movie is fantastic, so is the song. Have you heard the version by The Be Good Tanyas? I love Townes's version of Dead Flowers as well. The late great Townes.

Warren Zevon - Keep Me In Your Heart   Warren wrote this song to his family when he found out he had stage 4 lung cancer.  He died a couple weeks after it's release.  I already let my family know it will be playing at my funeral.

Shortly  before he died, he was on Letterman and said that we should enjoy every sandwich. Letterman asked him if he had any more insights into life and death than the rest of us do. He said not unless I can tell you how much you're supposed to enjoy that sandwich.

He said that avoiding the doctor for more than 20 years was probably not one of his better choices. Even on a subject like that he managed to make it somewhat funny. He was the only guest that night.

Yesterday was his birthday and my favorite station played Werewolves of London.
