Tom Waits + Paul Rudd = Happy Saturday

Matt just told me that Paul Rudd wears a Rain Dogs shirt in Knocked Up. I had no idea that man could get more attractive than he already is, but here is my proof. Maybe I'll have to rent a movie for once.

Now I have to post my favorite song off of Rain Dogs. As Matt said a little while ago, you will hate Tom Waits at first. But after a while, you'll come to love that 3-pack-a-day gravelly voice of his. "Tango 'Til They're Sore" is the perfect 3am song. The drunken piano, the tired plea to "let me fall out the window with confetti in my hair", sounds exactly like it feels to give up and go to bed hours after you should have. If you don't love this song now, I promise it will come to your mind late one night. I just hope you'll remember to give him a second listen the next day.

Tom Waits - Tango 'Til They're Sore

Tom Waits is an acquired taste, and appreciation for him is darn-near a pre-requisite for any potential date.

I'm way late on this, but thanks for the complements and the link back. I will surely return the favor as soon as I catch up! I've had some kind of horrible germ I like to call The Walking Death. And I missed the Bishop Allen show. :(
