Way Down In The Hole

Craig has introduced me to The Wire and is kind enough to fix me up with a constant supply of seasons. Tonight I copied the latest supply on Toño's iMac and started season 2 to accompany the ironing. I almost let drop the iron when I heard Tom Waits crying the opening theme of season two. 20 years ago, I heard this song the first time in Tom Wait's concert movie Big Time:

Isn't it strange that all three (and there are only three) concert films worth watching whether you're a fan or not had been made in the eighties?
Stop Making Sense (1984)
Sign 'o' the Times (1987)
Big Time (1988)
