Tom Waits - Train Song (live)

Moving on from the remembrances (I'm assuming Aaron went with some MJ, but I am writing this on Monday and could be wrong.), I wanted to draw our train survey to a close.

It is probably the least inspired of my selections, but of course I had to post this song. The clip is from his concert film "Big Time," which I have not seen, although I did purchase the accompanying album in a little record store in Ljubljana about a year ago. Trains, travel and the music of Tom Waits always make me nostalgic. For me, this one is the intersection of all three.

(Critics should note this is the first Tom Waits song I've posted since the inaugural post of this blog.)
