"Temptation" by Tom Waits

From his 1987 album Franks Wild Years, it's birthday boy Tom Waits with Temptation, a song more properly called an aria, since the album from whence it issues was written to accompany a play - and is in fact subtitled 'Un Operachi Romantico in Two Acts'.

The play Franks Wild Years was first produced by Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company and had its world premiere in June 1986; a song of the same title originally appeared on Waits' 1983 album Swordfishtrombones.
