  1. Excellent

  2. The best ever.

  3. Amazing how his is so funny and hers is so heartbreaking.

  4. Tom Waits rocks. Thanks

  5. Lets do a little analogy, S.A.T. style.

    Waits’ “A Christmas Card” is to Christmas as Arlo’s “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” is to Thanksgiving.

    It’s truly an amazing piece. A new Christmas tradition around these parts.

  6. Great version which I hadn’t heard…thank you for this. A very welcome addition to tired lists of Christmas songs :)

  7. Amusingly, there’s a campaign to get this to No. 1 in Ireland for Christmas. So stop sharing it! :)

Definitely one of my favorite Waits songs, I like the studio version (with the great organ) better than the live one with “Silent Night” that’s floating around, but it’s a brilliantly sad and beautiful song, no matter what version. And don’t forget to head over to Aquarium Drunkard to pick up Neko Case’s fantastic cover. Consider it a bonus. […]
