Sample text

This rhumba version is radically different from the sleazy lounge-lizardry that permeates the Vegas version that occurs later in the album, with its Sinatra-esque vocal stylings, cocktail piano, tenor saxophone, bass, and drums. “Blow Wind Blow” is a comparatively sparse arrangement with bullhorn vocals, pump organ, alto horn, banjo, and glockenspiel that come together to form the soundtrack to a disturbing reverie. The song “Temptation” falls into a heavy rhythmic groove with the prominent acoustic bass and percussion foundation, providing an appropriate backing for the raspy edge of Waits’s falsetto vocals.

Later, the panpipes, muted trumpet, and accordion interweave with the melody line and add new melodic and harmonic material, creating dissonances and a desolate, isolated atmosphere. The sounds and arrangements that Tom Waits uses in the soundtrack to Night on Earth complement the nighttime visuals they accompany and help to enrich and develop the narratives, atmospheres, and characters. The mostly instrumental score elicits a brooding and even disturbing atmosphere where cacophony, dissonance, and percussive clatter float through unusual time signatures, nostalgic European and gypsy waltzes, and idiosyncratic jazz.

The style is rambunctious, humorous, and carnivalesque. The same accompaniment pattern is still present, with a variety of instruments alternating playing the melody line. An abundance of percussion instruments and “toys” such as whistles, bells, and buzzers are incorporated into this lighthearted and comical musical selection, as well as a drum kit, trumpet, harmonium, and guitar, which together are suggestive of the zeal, lively exuberance, exaggerated gestures, and theatricality that can be found in stereotypical representations of Italian culture.
