There’s some disappointment in Waits’s bedtime song this week, as Martin & Sam consider the purpose of the lullaby in Woyzeck and beyond, and think about the perspectives we bring to the specificities of a song.
Music extracts used for illustrative/review purposes include:
Lullaby, Blood Money, Tom Waits (2002)
Rockabye, 100 Not Out, Kit & The Widow (2011)
