Tom Waits performed in Austrian idiom

My pals Johannes and Evelyn sent me a fantastic early birthday present today, a CD of Tom Waits covers recorded by Wolfgang Ambros, a 1970s Austropop great. Austropop was an Austrian musical movement who recorded music from all genres in Austrian slang.

My German's pretty rotten, but I quite liked hearing Tom Waits standards like "Romeo Verliert Bluat" (Romeo is Bleeding) and "Es Is Vorbei" (Ruby's Eyes) sung in soulful Austrian German.
