Here’s some nice music for Advent: a rare recording of Tom Waits singing “Silent Night.” Click here to listen online.
This is real sweet, Ben, I'd not heard it. But I think I prefer his version of Silent Night on his "Christmas Card from A Hooker in Minneapolis" . Here's the link to a live version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1tQVJ-23ZY&feature=related
most beautiful, thank you!
Brilliant!!That's made my 1st Sunday of Advent!Happy New Year...
I always thought "Advent" was about the second coming of our Lord? Doesn't scripture tell us that that particular day/night will be anything but silent?Yours pedantically - JOHN HARTLEY
Hi John: well, to be fair, Tom Waits' performance is also "anything but silent"!
AAARRGGHH...owwwwwYou have all drunk the kool-aid.
Thanks for this. I hadn't put on Mr Waits in a while, so I had a listen to Franks Wild Years. Absolutely brilliant. Anyway, if you want a laugh check out this 'press conference' he did earlier in the year. hilarious. http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=EOrG1r3S6ZA
what? no caption contest? well, here is my own unsolicited entry:Waits, in an apparent change of career course, began his most recent concert with a soaring showcase of his abilities as a tenor: "La donna è mobile, Qual piuma al vento..."
OK Ken, I'll take the bait.The world renowned mime, T. Waits, breaks his silence with his historic 'I have a nightmare' speech.
Keep up the good work can a Faith and Theology mix CD be far behind?God BlessSteve in Toronto
huge thanks for this. thinking maybe my upper respiratory infection is a blessing in disguise, as I find myself able to sing like Tom today...
Hey, Does anyone have any other ideas on Great Christmas songs/Albums. Carols, not holiday song rubbish. I'm looking for guitar or piano Christmas music that's not cheese. Any ideas out there?
Hi Bram. Personally, my favourite is Sufjan Stevens' Songs for Christmas (a set of 5 CDs). It's wonderful stuff, with some gorgeous arrangements.
That was painful. S&G's Silent Night must now be posted to balance the cosmos.
Wow. Waits can even make Jesus' birth sound creepy. Love it.
wow, thanks for this! awesome!
