Oh yeah! Tom Waits is hitting the road. I seriously gotta try and see him so I can cross him off of my list. The man is a legend. FACT. And just in time, Scarlett Johansson's album of Tom Waits covers, Anywhere I Lay My Head, is about to drop. I am really not sure how I feel about this, but right now it's more novelty than anything. I mean, come on, it's Scarlett Johansson. She's h0tt and all, but this could very well go the way of the Paris Hilton album. However, at least she (Scarlett) picked someone cool to cover, if indeed the choice was hers. Oh, and some dude named David Bowie contributes backup vocals for a couple tracks on the (SJ) album, as well.
Compare and contrast:
Scarlett Johansson > Anywhere I Lay My Head
Tom Waits > Anywhere I Lay My Head
