2011 Advent Calendar Day 7: Tom Waits, “Silent Night”

Today is Tom Waits’ birthday, or as we like to call it around here, Waitsmas. Waits released an amazing new record this year called Bad As Me, which has been spotted on several “record of the year” lists. In tribute to Waitsmas, we’ve got a great Christmas song from the man himself. Here’s his haunting version of “Silent Night” and a live performance of a medley of “Silent Night” and Waits’ own composition “Christmas Card From A Hooker in Minneapolis.”
