The Beginner's Guide to...
Thought it might be a good idea to start a thread which will feature links to compos where people can see if they want to get into a band/artiste, rather than have to d/l albums or whatever. I'm starting off with the enigmatic Mister Tom Waits, and will publish compos of his work in ascending order of accessibility, in other words, his most accessible first and then if you like that you can d/l some more advanced stuff.
Might work, might not, who knows?
Anyway, begins below.
If there's an outfit you'd like featured let me know, and if I have thier music I'll consider doing a compo on these lines.

Tom Waits
Starting off with his most accessible stuff, a collection for "starter" Waits fans, or people just curious...


Goin' down slow
New coat of paint
Tom Traubert's blues
San Diego serenade
Christmas card from a hooker in Minneapolis
I never talk to strangers (duet with Bette Midler)
I'm your late night evening prostitute
Saving all my love for you
Had me a girl
I wish I was in New Orleans
Johnsburg, Illinois
Shiver me timbers
Twenty-nine dollars
A sight for sore eyes
House where no-one lives
Jersey girl
(Looking for) The heart of Saturday night
Invitation to the blues
Rockin' chair
The ocean doesn't want me
Jesus gonna be here
On the nickel
Bad liver and a broken heart
Hang down your head
Kentucky Avenue
Little rain
Ruby's arms
When you ain't got nobody
Blue valentines
Drunk on the moon
More than rain
Picture in a frame
Black wings
Look like I'm up sh1t creek again
Soldier's things
Blind love
Come on up to the house
Train song
Downtown train
Ol' 55
I hope that I don't fall in love with you
Virginia Avenue
Ice-cream man
Closing time

Thanks so much for this.

Just thought I'd bump this, 'cos I think it deserves it. Plus I'm gonna do one or two comps for this myself soonish.

Would it be worth doing a Radiohead one or should I go for something like Sigur Ros or The Olivia Tremor Control?

FaSho 02-24-2009 03:35 PM

Or Mogwai maybe? :D
