I have been listening a lot to Nanci Griffith's excellent collection of torch songs (Ruby's Torch), and man - torch songs can rock!!
What is your favorite torch song?
In case you don't know what a torch song is, wikipedia defines it as:"Please Call Me Baby" by Tom Waits is one of my faves (it is on the Griffith album).a sentimental love song, typically one in which the singer laments an unrequited or lost love, where one party is either oblivious to the existence of the other, or where one party has moved on.
I am not sure what my FAVORITE is, though...
