The Heart of Saturday Night

4 years, 11 months ago at Sep 13 20:14
Before Tom Waits created albums full of percussive instruments that sounded like plastic tubs and trash cans, he was Beat poet giving his jagged croon to jazz-like numbers. The Heart of Saturday Night is a fantastic album for a rained out, slightly depressing Saturday night, preferably if it’s in the middle of the night. These songs might not all be depressing, but they sound subdued and melanch... read more

Website: Amazon
Description: The Eagles might have covered his song "Ol' 55," but Tom Waits was cut from a different cloth than California's other singer-songwriters--he suggested a scruffy beat poet who'd walked out of a forgotten scene of Jack Kerouac's On the Road. Waits's beatnik schtick could get old, and he developed into a much more musically ad ... (more)

The Retrospective - Tom Waits (19 music items)

"The sophomore jinx didn’t come true with Tom Waits. He moved on and started to evolve his jazzy love songs of Closing Time into a more mature and interesting ways to portrait he’s feelings. Still I don't call this as a undisputed classic. Album is full of classic numbers but some songs seems cheesy. Flawed but good. Produced by Bones Howe."

""By the time Waits made his second album, he'd finally developed his talent for growling, jazzy beatnik gutter tales, and largely dispersed with the love songs. He does it best on "Diamonds on My Windshield" and "The Ghosts of Saturday Night."'"

The Heart of Saturday Night

“Before Tom Waits created albums full of percussive instruments that sounded like plastic tubs and trash cans, he was Beat poet giving his jagged croon to jazz-like numbers. The Heart of Saturday Night is a fantastic album for a rained out, slightly depressing Saturday night, preferably if it’s in the middle of the night. These songs might not all be depressing, but they sound subdued and melancholic.

“Drunk On the Moon” is one of the many fantastic songs on the album. It features the Jack Kerouackian lyrics that pervade the album and has the soft jazz-like percussion throughout. And no Waits album is complete without one spoken-word piece. This album has two: “Diamonds On My Windshield” and the closing “Ghosts of Saturday Night (After Hours at Napoleon’s Pizza Hous” read more
