God, I love Tom Waits. That’s why I’m treating you to one of my favorite Waits compositions this Sunday morning. Dead and Lovely—he could be singing about me!
I will hum this tune all morning. It’s particularly alluring when matched with nostalgic images of Cuba from Wim Wenders’s Buena Vista Social Club.
Ai, que precioso!
