FTRK #21 = "Everything Goes to Hell" by Tom Waits
Everything Goes to Hell (2002) (Download .mp3)
Everything Goes to Hell is a dark, jazzy track off of the Blood Money album. Its filled with lyrics of disregard, alluring saxophone and a passionate timpani. In some ways its romantic, in others it's distrustful, but it's all put together in a underground New Yorker fashion. Best of all, its ridiculously different in tone than his earier works; much murkier than Closing Time, but more modern than Rain Dogs.
