I Heart Taco - "Green Grass"

Here's a haunting cover of a Tom Waits song about mortality, beautifully sung by Haley Taylor, a former guitar student of Ron Geida's who performed at one of the "Cavalcade of Unpopular Musics" shows at Doc's Records last year. "Now I just need to learn how to whistle," she sez, but I beg to disagree -- it's the differences between a cover and the original that make it resonate.
