This is my favorite version of "Downtown Train."

Outside, another yellow moon/Has punched a hole in the nighttime…

    Really? As good as this one?

    Heh … just a little joshin' there. Check out the hand movements when he sings:

    You wave your hand and they scatter like crows / They have nothing that'll ever capture your heart.

    "That's awesome," as Farley used to say.

    Yeah, I meant among versions that Tom Waits recorded. But that was damn funny. I think my very favorite part is right at the outset, when we get a subway sign reading "DOWNTOWN." Thanks, music video!
