Tom Waits - Franks Wild Years

Franks Wild Years [sic] is an album by Tom Waits, released 1987 on Island Records.

Subtitled "Un Operachi Romantico in Two Acts", the album contains songs written by Waits and collaborators (mainly his wife, Kathleen Brennan) for a play of the same name.

The shared title of the album and the play is an iteration of "Frank's Wild Years", a song from Waits' 1983 album Swordfishtrombones.

The play had its world premiere in Chicago, Illinois on June 22, 1986, performed by the Steppenwolf Theatre Company at the Briar St.

Theatre."Hang On St.

Christopher" was covered by 80s Hair Metal group, Bulletboys.

Various versions of the track "Way Down in the Hole" have served as the theme music for the HBO series The Wire, including Waits' original version for the second season.

The song was also sampled by the hip-hop group 3rd Bass and their producer Sam Sever in 1989 on their collaborative effort The Cactus Album (specifically, the track "Flippin' off the Wall Like Lucy Ball")."Frank's Wild Years" is also a short Remodernist film by Jesse Richards that was inspired in part by the Waits album.
