Tom Waits does Christmas

And it's what you'd expect.

Tom Waits' stuff is amazing. Not only are his songs auditory Experiences (capital E), they're also like short stories, with rising and falling action, characters, and vibrant details-- the lyrics beg to be read along with the song so that you can catch everything.

never really been into his material but the title alone (i.e. hooker), is gives it a top 5 rating in the seasons song list :-)
