Midweek Mixtape | 119 Songs That Step Right Up (Side 6)

939

Today is Tom Waits’ 73rd birthday. Unfortunately, the incomparable singer-songwriter did not choose to celebrate that event with a new release. Nor did anyone prominent cover one of his classics. So I don’t have anything Waitsian to offer you on this day. But I do have 119 singles, videos, cover tunes, remixes, oldies, holiday songs and live performances to fill that Tom-sized void. Your Tinnitist-approved tracks — many of which you won’t find anywhere else — have been tagged with a 👠. The piano has been drinking, not me:
