    Cruella de Vil β€” The Replacements
    From the 1988 album Stay Awake: Various Interpretations of Music from Vintage Disney Films. Always wondered how Tom Waits would interpret "Heigh-Ho" from Snow White? Wonder no more. I love this CD!

    Fortune Teller β€” Rolling Stones
    I went to the fortune teller, to get my fortune read. I didn't know what to tell her, I had a dizzy feeling in my head. A favorite Stones song since I was little; all but forgotten now.

    Ring of Fire β€” Social Distortion
    My favorite version of this song. I will fight you over this.

    Tell A Vision Time β€” Dirk Hamilton
    Dirk is a very dear friend of mine. He has been writing smart, clever, observant lyrics for nearly five decades. His album Meet Me at the Crux is genius.

    Werewolves of London β€” Warren Zevon
    Fun fact: my friend Dirk (above) was the opener for Zevon on tour. One night, band members of both singers were drinking in a bar and got into a heated argument over who was the better singer, and who could kick whose ass. Zevon heard about it and fired Dirk from the tour.

    My first job was at an ice cream parlor; this was my theme song.

    The song is as cute as little kids wearing cardboard cars.
