Days of the Week - Looking For The Heart Of Saturday Night

Tom Waits: (Looking For) The Heart Of Saturday Night


This one's always been a favorite of mine. Can you think of another song where one of the verses is an interruption (see below)?

Tell me, is it the crack of the pool balls? Neon buzzin?
(Telephone’s ringin’ – it’s your second cousin)
Is it the bar maid that’s smiling from the corner of her eye?
The magic of the melancholy tear in your eye?

P.S. If you have anymore Days of the Week songs, tomorrow is the last day to post them before Matt debuts the new theme on Sunday.

I was thinking of this song earlier, and thinking I'd post it, but... turns out I've only got it on cassette, at this point!
