Does anyone know where I can get a list of what songs were written when? What songs from Orphans were part of the Real Gone sessions?


Aren't they on wikipedia? And my favorite orphan is probably Walk Away.

Also, I can't find the info I'm looking for on wikipedia. I'll keep looking around.

Incorrect...it was the cool thing to do between 1971 and 1973. After that he had put out an album and people knew about him.

Down by the Riverside motel
It's 10 below and falling
By a 99 cent store
She closed her eyes and started swaying
But it's so hard to dance that way
When it's cold and there's no music
Oh, your old hometown's so far away
But inside your head there's a record that's playin...

A song called 'Hold On.'

:luv:

It took the wind right out of me the first time I really heard that verse. I smiled, gasped and tears filled my eyes.

He's a fucking lyrical wizard.

I went down into the valley to pray
Everywhere I go it rains on me
I got drunk and I stayed all day
Everywhere I go it rains on me

Doesn't sound so bad, really.

This was the video/performance that sold me on Waits. When i was first digging in to him I came across this:




I was floored. I still am.

When was this shot? mid 90's?
