Need some suggestions for Tom Waits


Recommended Posts

I've heard great things about and would like to know a few songs to start off with.

Let's see, albums:

Closing Time

Rain Dogs

Nighthawks at the Diner


Frank's Wild Years

Orphans (His newest)

You'll notice a tremendous variety of styles in his music. Pretty much any songs off of those albums are great for a listen. If you want a couple songs, I'd recommend:

Eggs and Sausage

Bottom of the World

Downtown Train

Rain Dogs


Pretty much anything off of Rain Dogs is a great place to start. However, if you want a more bluesy/jazz type listen, check out Closing Time or some of his earlier work in the 70s. He's a great artist, so good luck.
