Tom Waits' voice sounds to me like it could jump out of a speaker and attack you, or sneak up on you from behind your barstool and yell in your ear. Then you hear songs like "Jersey Girl" (which Bruce Springsteen covered later on) and it's like: marry me. Write songs with shalalala for me forever.
And his press conference for "Glitter and Doom." Watch 'til the end.
