    I don't have any of his albums.. but I love a song he sings called "Down Down Down" or something..
    Frank Black sings a cover song called Black Rider, that I like.
    You know(?), I'm going to get some Tom Waits CD's!

    Too many to count.....if I'm forced to pick a favorite it's probably Heartattack and Vine....followed closely by Mule Variations.

    Honestly though....all of his albums are gold.

    I know it's his "hit", but I always loved "In the Neighborhood"

    I don't think he's awesome. His singing kind of sucks. Before anyone goes on to explain what a great songwriter he is, I suggest sticking to songwriting. That being said, maybe I respect him for his originality. I know his acting in Dracula was superb, and he can do no wrong as far as that goes.

    I haven't kept up with Waits' works, and that's my fault. But when my kids were small I'd tell them the story of "Big Joe And Phantom 309" as a bedtime story and they loved it.

    Not too sure of any albums, but my favorite Waits song is Christmas Card From A Hooker In Minneapolis.

    He was awesome. I also love his voice, both early days and now. Give me emotion over clean any day.

    I love this song. Means more to me than words can say... l

    He sounds like he's gargling razor blades.

    The only good things he's done is writing Jersey Girl for Bruce and playing Renfield in Bram Stoker's Dracula.

    Unfortunately, Tom Waits got some horrendous-looking plastic surgery. He must have gone to Wiggy's doctor. :facepalm:

    It's a shame his pal Warren Zevon isn't around to play his last show...

    I wish Letterman would quit all this bullshit celebrity parade and revive the golden years before he goes out.

    Bring back the velcro wall, call the chick across the street, take over NBC support calls, bring back Chris Elliot. Charts and graphs. CBS mailbag. Will it float. And if he does have on a celebrity bring them out and tear them a new asshole lie he use to.. instead of kissing the one they have

    i would rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy

    he always had good one liners in all of his interviews from the very beginning
