Tom Waits in 8-bit

The strangest Waits covers/adaptations I've ever heard: TOMW8S - the Donkey Kong Variations by Buddy Peace.

Thank you for posting.
"Chocolate Jesus" is worth the price of admission.

Music to broadcast from your drone fleet. Right after the noon whistle, which in our town is always followed by, "this is only a test").
Surprising how charming "Hold On" is in this reduction. The melody really stands up to the A-Blast.
Great fun.
Too bad we can't get Shooby Taylor to vamp over it.

Weird and lovely.

Horrible. The only good thing about these is that they make me rush to listen to the proper songs!
