TOM WAITS & BRUCE vs. K.I.D.S. INC.

While looking for their cover of Kris kross' 'Jump' (still looking) I found these awesome oddballs from those incorrigible, incorporated KIDS.  Note how in 'Pink Cadillac,' some producer got a roomful of children to sing about the holiest of holes!

They do a good version of "Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis" too.

I'm pretty sure they're doing the Rod Stewart version, but still, YIKES.

Dang, I was hoping for God's Away on Business.

Welp, after thirty odd years of suffering through that damn "Pink Cadillac" song, now I know the subtext. Thanks, EIT!

Seriously, though, anytime you share something from "Kids Inc." is a good day.

I love how they have kids pretending to play the guitar while dancing. It really adds a layer of verisimilitude. Or crappiness. Take your pick.

The "guitar" solo at the beginning of "Pink Cadillac" is notable both because of how poignant it is in just three notes and because the Pete Townshend slide is equally as long as the solo.
