“There’s too many poets/There’s too many songs”

Bill Fox – “Song of a Drunken Nightingale” from Transit Byzantium (1998)
Tom Waits – “In the Neighborhood” from Swordfishtrombones (1983)

I’ll be in MO and KS for the next week, reenacting the Battle of Westport. As a for-a-while farewell, here’s a beaut from SWR fave Bill Fox and a Tom Waits classic famously described by Jordy’s wife as “A Cookie Monster Christmas.”

See you on Boxing Day.

Tom waits for no man

Bill Fox is expensive (just buy it from iTunes)
