My favorite Ramones song is "I don't want to grow up." It is such a great start to their Adios Amigos record. I didn't know it was a Tom Waits song! haha, thanks for posting this. Now I've learned something today. I'll add the Ramones version:
Tom Waits is a national treasure. He writes beautiful melodies and his lyrics are amazing.
All broken down by the side of the road
I's never more alive or alone
I've worn the faces off all the cards
I'm gonna take it with me when I go
There's a clue in the video. Look in the lower right at 0:36 in the vid and there's a picture of Tom on the wall with the rest of the family. Another pic appears later toward the end.
Whoa, good eye!
Here's another cover of the song...a quite different take on it:
That whole album, Bone Machine, is amazing. Love Tom Waits! Especially the stuff from Rain Dogs on.
Wish I could have seen a concert of his.
Saw this when I was a kid and have been a fan since.
You don't have to grow up, but you're still going to grow old, unfortunately.
I think growing old is the 'fortunate' path.
