And so we waits…

My Tom Waits playlist in progress.
These are all songs from albums after 1980, I wanted
to put together songs specifically because of the raspy
quality in his voice starting develop around that time.
The order of the songs is being chosen based on a long
drive I'd like to take while listening to them. It starts quiet

and rough, gets louder and gains momentum, then starts
to get a little tired, a little saddle soar and ready to roll out
it's bed on the sand and look up at the stars.
