I mean it as a compliment

Whenever I hear Tom Waits on the radio, I don't recognize it's him. I think “Why are they playing a cartoon monster on the radio?”

Hahahah! I guess that's why they put his song "Drop of Poison" on the Shrek soundtrack. PS. Tom Waits is great!

You're not alone, Valerie. I mentioned this post to my husband, a big TW fsn. He confessed the last time he heard TW on the radio he thought, "Wow, this is a really bad imitation of Tom Waits."
