Was listening to Tom Waits’ album Blue Valentine, in particular Somewhere, which always makes me cry, and I realised it’s best part of forty years old.

But my favourite Tom Waits song is Shore Leave, just for the break into the chorus, when you realise it’s basically a twelve-bar, and it’s a blues, but it’s not a ‘twelve bar blues’ and you think, “What has he just done there?”

Surprising, and beautiful too. Which is what all art should be.

Here it is.
