    I bought that album when it first came out. It's superb, if really maudlin.

    Much better, IMO, are Blue Valentines and $29 (for which there are no vids on YouTube, Daily Motion or Google).

    One of my favorite songs of all time.

    (About 15 years ago, at a family reunion in the hills of west PA my Ohioan sister and I went for a cruise in my old 84 Grand Marquis with Californian second cousins I had had just met for the first time. Driving around the hills of W. Virginia, we talked some, smoked some kind and I popped in a mix tape - yes a mix tape - and Christmas Card started playing. My California cousins, siblings, both immediately knew and loved the song as much as I. Very nice family reunion bonding.)

    That song has been getting heavy rotation Chez Snoozan lately. It's been reminding me of an ex. An ex I need to purge from my brain forever. Perfect song for that kind of reflection.

    I let the clip play out while searching for a clip of $29 (without success). I remember every inflection and hesitation, even after over 25 years.

    <sigh>

    oh wow, beautiful song, I'm new to him, really, I had heard of him, but didn't really got out of my way and check it out, but I was listening to some John Zorn and naked city, and I remembered someone talking about him, and finally decided to check out some videos, glad that I did. Can any of you recommend an album of his?

    Beautiful Maladies is good, it's a compilation
    Rain Dogs is a favorite
    Small Change is good
    The Early Years vol. 2
    Foreign Affair

    I could go on. Those are the albums I'm most familiar with, but by no means the best. I really like Beautiful Maladies because it covers a few albums.

    I concur with my pal Snooze. Small Change was where I started my Tom Waits appreciation. The songs we've been discussing come from Blue Valentine.
