Kids These Days

I was shocked and a little disappointed today when none of my students had heard of Tom Waits. And I'm sure my impression of him did nothing to spark their curiosity. So, self-indulgently, here's a bit of Step Right Up:
Three for a dollar
We got a year-end clearance, we got a white sale
And a smoke-damaged furniture
you can drive it away today
Act now, act now
and receive as our gift, our gift to you
They come in all colors, one size fits all
No muss, no fuss, no spills
you're tired of kitchen drudgery
Everything must go

Speaking of which, Tom's new label, Anti, has MP3s for most of their artists -- including Nick Cave, Neko Case, The Frames and Solomon Burke -- on their site. So go there and indulge in some downloady goodness.
