Visiting Montana again has made me feel nostalgic, for times and people now long gone. “Martha” by Tom Waits is as melancholy and nostalgic as any song I can think of.
I was introduced to Tom Waits by my friend Bob. This was back in the days when you would make tapes of favorite music for others and send it to them. I wore the tapes out. One of the first things I did when I got an iPod was to buy all the Tom Waits that I no longer had.
On a melancholy Monday, Tom Waits is just the thing.
