"Hold On" by Tom Waits

To complete today's birthday video hat trick here's Hold On, a track from Tom Waits' 1999 album Mule Variations - which featured such instant classics as Big in Japan, What's He Building?, Picture in a Frame, and Chocolate Jesus.

Coming seven years after its predecessor - the 1992 album Bone Machine - Mule Variations is an almost perfect synthesis of the Asylum Years and the Island Years in one elegantly produced little package, a pristine copy of which holds pride of place in the collection of the Pop Culture Institute.
