Dead Love: Dead and Lovely, Tom Waits

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!

    The images of old Havana have me dieing to return to Cuba. Last visit: 1975
