…yes, I have neglected my song du jour of the day lately. And even though it’s DrBob’s birthday, I don’t have a birthday song, because I think the song du jour of the day should be something I love, even if it’s only for the moment, and there aren’t any birthday songs I love. But today’s song is one for the ages, my first-ever Tom Waits song. I was 20 years old, and it was playing at Keith’s house, when our relationship was on its way out anyway, and even though we were barely speaking, I called him two days later to ask him what that song had been. It is my favorite love song, because it admits that lovers can have problems but still care about eachother.
Please call me, baby
Wherever you are
It’s too cold to be out walking in the streets
We do crazy things when we’re wounded
Everyone’s a bit insane
But I don’t want you catching your death of cold
Out walking in the rain
