One From the Heart

The song below, "Broken Bicycles" written and sung by Tom Waits, is from his album composed for the 1982 Francis Ford Coppola movie, "One From the Heart."

I've always thought that this was one of the greatest sound tracks I've ever heard.

The movie itself failed miserably, which was a bit of a shame, because it was such an interesting experiment. Coppola created an entire Las Vegas on a sound stage and had the camera weaving in and around some funny and tragic love stories. Teri Garr was wonderful. as she often is.

Find it at a video store; it's worth a look, and Waits' music is terrific.
