New Tom Waits, Old Cookie Monster

This video has been making the rounds — I spotted it first over at bookshelves of doom — but it’s worth posting here in case any of you missed it: Tom Waits’ “God’s Away on Business” from 2002’s Blood Money, as performed by Cookie Monster.

In other Wait-y news — har har har — an album of new material from the enigma himself might be on its way. It would be his first album proper since 2004’s Real Gone. More over at Exclaim!

  1. Holy god that Cookie Monster mashup is amazing. Thanks. I will never listen to Tom Waits the same way again.

  2. That is the best thing I’ve seen on the internet in a long time. Although I think an Oscar the Grouch version would be a bit more fitting.
