Happy May Day everybody! To be honest, this year’s been a lousy one so far, but I hold on to my optimism. Everything is going to come together and get better. On that note, what could be more optimistic and heartening than Tom Waits crooning in your ear? Or, um, barking huskily, as it were. If time could move in reverse, I would love to hear Louis Armstrong cover this song in 1936. Wouldn’t it be the best? Some people play fantasy football. I play fantasy cover album.
