This 1975 live studio album was Tom Waits' third release. It begins with a bit of sax, percussion and an intro by Waits. He's a bit of a stage comedian, telling jokes between songs, and giving little introductions before them. The music is beautiful, as with all of Waits' live work. One of the best is Better Off Without A Wife, all about a stag and his love of being alone. Playing after that is Nighthawk Postcards, which is another great story, this time of a journey through a town past dark.
An excerpt from Nighthawks at the Diner's-
Emotional Weather Report

With tornado watches issued shortly
Before noon Sunday, for the areas
Including, the western region
Of my mental health
And the northern portions of my
Ability to deal rationally with my
Disconcerted precarious emotional
Situation, it's cold out there

Tom Waits released his second album just a year after his first. Much had evolved from then, though much was the same. Waits' newer music had a more jazzy feel, rather than the country twang of his debut. The piano is often drowned out by other instruments, but it does come pounding back out. The title track, The Heart Of Saturday Night, and it's conclusion The Ghosts Of Saturday Night, are settled, but very bouncy tunes.

New Coat Of Paint

Let's put a new coat of paint, on this lonesome old town
Set 'em up, we'll be knockin' em down.
You wear a dress, baby, and I'll wear a tie.
We'll laugh at that old bloodshot moon, in that burgundy sky

A declaration of anger suitable for fat white women and scrawny gay men.
"The bitch at the drive through forgot my five-pounder with cheese, you know I can't just eat a big fry! I am p-i-double-guh-issed!"

1. The thirteenth song on Tom Waits' 2004 album, Real Gone.

2. Sort of like Hook, Line and Sinker, this is supposed to mean everything.
Well my baby ’s so fine
Even her car looks good
From behind
Oh yeah!
Well my baby ’s so fine
Even her car looks good
From behind

But the train that took
My baby…
It went Clang, Boom and Steam

An OHSHIT moment is the instant between the pain and screaming, or the first time you smell Paris Hilton's cooch. (Maybe a mix of both.) Any sort of moment where you are bound to freak out has an OHSHIT, big or small. Here you may yell out a shitplitive, begin to cry, or crap yourself. Or all three.
(An example of an OHSHIT moment)

In Johnny's head-

'OHSHIT, definitely not having kids now.'

An odd way of saying Jesus, used by Tom Waits in the song Filipino Box Spring Hog. It has few practical conversational uses, but it is an interesting word.
An excerpt from Filipino Box Spring Hog-
From the album Mule Variations-
Tom Waits-

"Jaheseus Christ I can always
Make room, when they're
Cookin' up a filipino box spring hog"

Album number seven from artist-in-the-shadows, Tom Waits. Released in 1983, it was a forty minute, thirteen track, carnival mad house of wicked instrumentals and monologues. The album's title track is a story of a demented soldier returning home, hell bent on giving a show. The second track, Shore Leave, is a squeaky love ballad from a sailor to the land and his girl.

Gin Soaked Boy

I got a belly full of you and that Leavenworth stuff
Now I'm gonna get out and I'm gonna get tough
You been lying to me, how could you crawl so low
With some gin-soaked boy that you don't know

I come home last night full a filth of Old Crow
You said you going to your ma's but where the hell did you go?
You went and slipped out nights, you didn't think that I'd know
With some gin-soaked boy that you don't know
