Eggs. No matter how far into the discography of Tom Waits Song by Song gets, we can never get away from Martin Zaltz Austwick's obsession with Eggs. Whether they're smooth and marble, over-easy or scrambled, there they are, always lurking in the background. So that's what we're talking about today. (and songwriting and Sting and intimacy and truth in performance and various other things, sure, sometimes...)
