Rain Dogs is the eighth studio album by American singer-songwriter Tom Waits, released in September 1985 on Island Records. A loose concept album about "the urban dispossessed" of New York City, Rain Dogs is generally considered the middle album of a trilogy that includes Swordfishtrombones and Franks Wild Years.
Lyrics to "Rain Dogs" song by Tom Waits: Inside a broken clock Splashing the wine With all the rain dogs Taxi, we'd rather walk Huddle a door. The rum pours strong and thin Beat out the dustman With the rain dogs Aboard a shipwreck train Give my umbrella to the Rain Dogs For I am a Rain Dog too. Oh, how we danced with the Rose of Tralee Her long hair black as a raven Oh, how we danced and you Whispered to me You'll never be going back home You'll never be going back home.
Rain Dogs is the eighth album by American singer-songwriter Tom Waits. It’s often considered the middle album of a trilogy of sorts, starting with Swordfishtrombones and ending with Frank’s Wild Years. It’s an unpredictable, thoroughly unique album that, really, could only have been made by Tom Waits
But Rain Dogs is sprawling where its predecessor had been focused: Tom Waits' lyrics here sometimes are imaginative to the point of obscurity, seemingly chosen to fit the rhythms rather than for sense
Rain Dogs helped to solidify Tom Waits’ reputation as one of America’s great bohemian weirdos. Big Black Mariah -anchored by Keith Richards’ raucous guitar squawk and percussion seemingly salvaged from a junkyard-is a gnarly mash of country blues and avant-garde theater. Anywhere I Lay My Head is equally cuckoo, with Waits howling like a drunken bulldog over marching-band jazz. But the record isn’t 100% bizarro-it also contains romantic stuff like Downtown Train, one of the all-time great subway love songs.
