White Collar Boy- Belle and Sebastian

BBC studio shows rule....they emote Austin Powers at his peak. Belle and Sebastian can really bring it....one of the more unique bands, a sound that distinct and a good deal of fun. Plus, they are absolutely enormous in Scotland. In January 2005, B&S was voted Scotland's greatest band in a poll by The List, beating Simple Minds, Idlewild, Travis, Franz Ferdinand, and The Proclaimers, among others (source: Wiki). Go Stuarts!

Tom Waits - Waltzing Matilda

No matter how many times I listen to a Tom Waits song, it amazes me to hear THAT voice come from THAT man. His voice was once described as sounding "like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months and then taken outside and run over with a car."

This gem is from '77 and the quality is great.
