Not quite a single artist mix, but I thought it was the most apt classification. Anyways...

Is it just me or does every great mix have to have one of these guys on it? There are exceptions of course, but seriously, Tom has to be on about 80% of the mixes submitted. Trust me, I'm not complaining: I'm a flagrant example of this. Between these three every topic from Heaven to Hell (and everything in the middle) is pretty much covered although certainly not here . Here we do have Sex (Chelsea Hotel,) Drugs (Little Drop of Poison,) and Rock & Roll (Janis in Chelsea Hotel,) as well as Murder (take your pick,) Dancing (Take This Waltz & Tango Til' They're Sore,) Guys (I'm Your Man, Nature Boy, Gin Soaked Boy,) Girls (Gun Street Girl, Crow Jane, and of course Miss Joplin again,) and Booze (a few here and so many not included.) Let's just peruse the titles: Guns, Hands, Fire, Tears, Mercy, Miracles...What's not to love?

According to the official stats, Tom Waits appeared on 395 mixes here last year, out of a total of 9900. More like 4% than 80%. But hey, this mix looks good. What's not to love.
