Lots of people are making negative comments about Tom's voice. I get it...he has a very distinctive, even dissonant voice...rough, scratchy and world-weary. I'm sure Simon Cowell would hate it, too...probably Randy and Paula as well...are they even still judging? I haven't watched that show in years. Anyway, I'm not grudging those who don't like it...it's not for everyone. I can't explain why I love Tom Waits...you either get it, or you don't. Lots of people worship Bob Dylan, and I don't care for him at all. People just have different tastes, I suppose. Getting angry over someone not liking your kind of music is like getting angry over someone not liking your favorite food or favorite color...who cares? lol

"His voice sounds like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car." -Daniel Durchholz I still love his voice though

If tobacco smoke got emphysema and throat cancer and tried to make a go of a singing career, but got a nasty cold on the day of recording, it'd still sound like a bit of a pussy next to Tom.

This song remains anthem of every musician that was waiting for sunrise on a damp street, with taste of tobacco and booze in mouth, chasing a dream of self created reality...
