    Poncho's Lament, The Early Years vol 1, Tom Waits [230]

    Poncho's Lament, The Early Years vol 1, Tom Waits [230]

    A second week with Amy and Helen sees everyone feeling that the work is slighter and possibly understanding why this track didn't make the jump onto a studio recording. Our guests discuss with Martin and Sam ideas of cliche and originality, the process of developing as a songwriter as well as some of the relationship politics that Gladys Knight navigates in her 1973 hit.

    Lyrics - Poncho's Lament

    Well the stairs sound so lonely without you
    
and I ain't made my bed in a week

    Coffee stains on the paper I'm writing

    and I'm too choked up inside to speak

    And yes, I know that our differences pulled us apart

    we never spoke a word heart to heart
    
And I'm glad that you're gone
    
but I wish to the Lord that you'd come home

    And I'm glad that you're gone

    got the feeling so strong

    And I'm glad that you're gone

    but I wish to the Lord that you'd come home

    Well my guitar still plays your favorite song

    though the strings have been outta tune for some time

    Every time I strum a cord, I pray out to the Lord
    
that you'll quit your honkey-tonkin' sing my song

    And I'm glad that you're gone

    got the feeling so strong

    And I'm glad that you're gone

    but I wish to the Lord that you'd come home

    So I'll throw another log onto the fire
    
and I'll admit I'm a lousy liar

    As the coals die down and flicker
    
I hear that guitar picker
    
Play the song we used to sing so long ago

    And I'm glad that you're gone
    
got the feeling so strong

    Yes, I'm glad that you're gone
    
but I wish to the Lord that you'd come home

    And I'm glad, damn glad you're gone

    I got the feeling so strong

    Yes, I'm glad that you're gone
    
but I wish to the Lord you'd come home

    Goin' Down Slow, The Early Years vol 1, Tom Waits [229]

    Goin' Down Slow, The Early Years vol 1, Tom Waits [229]

    Helen Zaltzman returns, along with new guest host Amy Smith, to join Sam & Martin for season 16 of Song by Song. We take a trip back to Waits's earliest writing from 1971 in this album of demos and unreleased tracks, discussing the temporal and osteopathic implications of a slow night with Tom, the tone he's aiming for at this early stage in his career, and bouncy ball music.

    Lyrics - Goin' Down Slow

    Well, it's a quarter to two
And I'm looking at you
We're goin' down, goin down slow

    Yeah, it's a quarter to two
And I'm looking at you
We're goin' down, goin down slow

    TV went off about one
We had only begun
I know that the wine's nearly gone
But I've got no intention of goin' home

    Well, it's a quarter to three
And you're diggin' on me
We're goin' down, goin' down slow

    Could stay here all night
Thinking you're out of sight
Please get up and turn out the light
There ain't nothing better than the middle of night

    When it's a quarter to four
You're beggin' for more
And we're goin' down, goin' down slow

    We're goin' down, goin' down slow
Goin' down, goin' down slow
Goin' down
Goin' down slow

    The Black Rider (Play), Tom Waits and Others [228/F09]

    The Black Rider (Play), Tom Waits and Others [228/F09]

    Our final discussion around The Black Rider continues from last week, as Martin and Sam get Burroughs quotes wrong (“Do what you will, that is the whole of the law” obviously being an Alistair Crowley quote, you idiot Sam, how did you miss that?!?), talk about the problematic autobiographical elements of the story, and what the lack of subtlety in this play means. Thanks for sticking with us through this very complicated season 15, and we’ll be back in the New Year with some... more accessible music.

    But He's Not Wilhelm/Chase the Clouds Away/In The Morning/News From The Duke [224-227]

    But He's Not Wilhelm/Chase the Clouds Away/In The Morning/News From The Duke [224-227]

    Sam and Martin dig into the four tracks that only appear in The Black Rider play, trying to decide why they weren’t featured on the Waits album. With some mixed feelings about the quality of the songs overall, and a little discussion about the language used by Waits and Burroughs (both in English and German), we start a conversation that will continue next week with a final summing up of both the play and the album.
