Tom Waits: Emotional Weather Report

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

It's Tom Wait's birthday. Tom is one of the greatest artists that the United States of America has ever seen and one of the greatest modern musicians, period. He composes and sings with the soul of someone who went to hell and back a few times. A true, honest genius, who has evolved in the most fantastic way, always looking for new sounds and musical experiences.

Anyway, no more presentation needed. Just watch this, a live version of Swordfishtrombones' Frank's Wild Years, performed on Letterman's, back in the 80s. It's one of my favorite songs.


Happy Birthday, Señor Waits. You've been by my side for almost three decades. Thank you for all your amazing music. [Spotify, Amazon, iTunes]
