My Lost Treasure: Tom Waits (For Coop)
Our theme right now on My Lost Treasure is old and/or new. Ol’ will also work. Today’s lost treasure is a good ol’ song. When I first thought of using it on My Lost Treasure, I was not sure if I wanted to use this original version or The version from The Eagles. Both are really good. I played The Eagles yesterday, so the original version it is.
I became more familiar with Tom Waits after I met my coworker and later to be radio partner, Mark Cooper. Coop loved Tom Waits, so I listened and became a fan myself. Coop seemed to like musicians with gruff voices. Kind of like Coop himself. I knew The Eagles cover of this song before this version. Now I love them both. Thanks, Coop. For introducing me to the music of Tom Waits. And for a lot more than that.
What song do you think I should play for the old and/or new theme? Let me know. It’s firstname.lastname@example.org or leave your comments on facebook or below. Thanks.
