YMMV / Tom Waits

Go To

  • Awesome Music: A few examples, but Hoist That Rag from Real Gone stands out.
  • Covered Up: Happens to him all the time. "Downtown Train" from Rain Dogs seems to be the most popular cover choice. Since Waits' own recordings have never made the charts, Rod Stewart's cover of "Downtown Train" went to #3. Bruce Springsteen's cover of "Jersey Girl" was only released as a B-side, but got lots of radio airplay and is more associated with him than with Waits.
