(June 2, 2014): Sparklehorse – Sad and Beautiful World

From the debut 1995 album, Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot.  The song title comes from a Tom Waits riff in the movie, Down By Law.  His girlfriend has just kicked him out of their apartment and thrown all his clothes and vinyl out the window.  Hours later Waits is still sitting on the curb below the apartment window, drinking out of a bottle, and singing “it’s a sad and beautiful world”.
