It's not alternative, it's essential!
On my music player, it's even pop, cause that's what plays most of the time :-)
You've got my personal lifetime emeritus award. And you've saved my life on a couple of occasions.

That Fionna Apple album is pretty fucking good. But yeah, my vote will always be for Mr. Waits, though I'm not sure Bad As Me is Waits' finest record.
