Everyone has a responsibility to not only tolerate another person's point of view, but also to accept it 
eagerly as a challenge to your own understanding. And express those challenges in terms of serving other people.

Grr... I have wanted to rant on this for a long time... 

ALL singing is contrived in some sense or another. Tom Waits gets EXACTLY the sound he is looking for. He knows precisely what he wants and he's spent a long time perfecting it. For me this is no different to a classically trained singer. Have you ever listened to a really good soprano or tenor? It is EXACTLY the same thing.. they are looking for a certain sound and invest a huge amount of time getting there. And most professional singers I know have a really high regard for singers like Tom Waits. Ok, so your benchmark might be clarity of tone, closing the vocal chords, getting rid of that breathiness most people naturally have when they sing. But by crikey, that is not the only benchmark out there.  But then are aiming at singing Lieder or opera. At a guess, Tom Waits isn't aiming for that genre.

Whoa. I hit 10 like I was going for BIG BUCKS NO WHAMMIES then I sobered up and remembered the drum track and realized, while my inner teen disagrees, this is a 7 at best. Which is still good enough to dance to naked.

My first real job was working in a dry cleaning store in my NJ hometown. 
It was a wintry day. I was driving the delivery van.
The top of the hill was coated with black ice. This song was on the radio — the theme music as the van spun lazily out of my control and careened slowly but fast enough, on the decline, to really fuck up the cars it was inevitably going to smash into. 
I can see clearly, still, as I howled as the van smacked into that parked Dodge Charger.
Larry didn't fire me. He saw my post-accident distress. He laughed. Said his f'in insurance broker could have the heartburn. 
Larry was terrific. 
I hear this song and am transported back to February 1974.

Not a comment but I appreciate knowing the lyrics for Dengue Fever — Uku:

នេះជារដូវធ្លាក់ខ្យល់បានធ្វើឱ្យខ្ញុំគិតថាភូមិខ្ញុំ
ខ្ញុំគិតពីមនុស្សចាស់យុវជនមីង
និងពូ
យើងធ្លាប់រត់លេងលាក់និងស្វែងរក
ប៉ុន្តែឥឡូវនេះយើងមាននៅឆ្ងាយដាច់ពីគ្នា
មកដល់ពេលនេះដាច់ពីគ្នា

eta: well the script shows properly in the song tab. Oh well.

Michael_Dean wrote:  Oh glad, I found you, an Expert of Pretentiousness. 

Would it not be handy to have a quick reference chart, seeing that we have so many citations of pretentiousness here in the comments section.  Please arrange the following in order of pretentiousness.  If you will do this work, I promise to post the chart every time I see an offense registered.  We can call it the MrsTom Pretentiousness Gradient, MTPG for short.  Not to be confused with Empty Peter Gabriel, of course, THAT'S a whole other chapter, let's just handle these one at a time and in order.  (Was that too Pretentious?).  ah... wait... we were talking about something...... THE LIST ! ! ! I  I'll have it made like a mountain range, with a snow-white pillow for my big fat head, And my heaven will be a big heaven, And I will walk through the front door.  Big time. (I love me!) (Now, I think that WAS pretentious).

 
Pretentiousness of the Highest Level
Indubitably Pretentious
Certainly Pretentiousness
Moderately Pretentiousness
Twinkie Defense Pretentiousness
Barely Pretentious
Criminally Pretentious
Chewbacca Defense Pretentious
Almost Pretentiousness
MTPG Pretentious

Oh glad, I found you, an Expert of a bit crap too.....

The MrsTom Pretentiousness Gradient - M.T.P.G. (Not to be confused with Empty Peter Gabriel, of course).

 

10.)  MTPG Pretentious - Pretentiousness that precedes all other Pretentiousness, the Pretentiousness from which all Pretentiousness is borne. Big Bang MTPG some have named it - BBMTPG.

09.)  Pretentiousness of the Highest Level - The inflationary epoch occurred at approximately  10−36 seconds after the Big Bang.  Following the inflationary period, The Pretentiousness continues to expand, but at a less rapid rate.  This is why some "Good" music actually can exist.

08.)  Criminally Pretentious - deliberate, willful, malicious, spiteful, wicked, cruel or violent Pretentiousness.

07.)  Certainly Pretentiousness - deliberate, but not violent Pretentiousness.

06.)  Indubitably Pretentious - Pretentiousness Beyond a Reasonable Doubt, you will do the Time for this one.

05.)  Twinkie Defense Pretentiousness - Pretentiousness attributed to insanity AND is defensible in a Court of Law.  These offenses are often "Settled Out of Court".

04.)  Moderately Pretentiousness - A level of Pretentiousness that is still defensible, but does not oblige insanity.

03.)  Barely Pretentious - This is Pretentiousness that just made it over the line.

02.)  Almost Pretentiousness - This is Pretentiousness so feeble that it doesn't really count.

01.)  Anomalous Pretentiousness  - Sometimes it's there, sometimes not.  Physicists are baffled, naming it  a non-zero vacuum energy Pretentiousness.  In the special case of vacuum energy, general relativity stipulates that the gravitational field is proportional to ρ+3p (where ρ is the mass-energy density, and p is the Pretentiousness).

00.)  Chewbacca Defense Pretentious - Red Herring Pretentiousness, not actually pretentiousness at all, 'tis a strategy, should not be listed here.

This is the last song I distinctly remember being a top 40 hit (that I liked) that owned a summer, in the way people would blast it in their cars, the way it would come on the radio and everyone would turn it up with the windows open and you could just hear it floating across the town. Before ipods/internet turned so much music appreciation inward (obviously not a bad thing, but I still enjoy the memory of this).
