Way Down in the Hole

Last Saturday I went out with a friend for her birthday. The band (actually it was just two guys with guitars) was really good and played an interesting variety of songs. My friend knew the band and mentioned that one of the guys plays in her church worship team and the other (the primary singer) wouldn’t set foot in a church. And so I was surprised to hear them sing “Way Down in the Hole” by Steve Earle.

I’ve been a fan of Steve Earle for years. He’s not a “Christian artist” and he’s not even a Christian (yet), but he plays some good music and this song is one of my favorites off his 2007 album Washington Square Serenade. It is the only song on the album that Earle didn’t write or co-write, but was written by Tom Waits.

I decided that for my Music Monday post I wanted to share this song. I found this video of it on YouTube. The imagery is from a video game and is a bit odd (though somewhat appropriate), but the other videos were all live performances that were not taped that well and it was hard to understand the lyrics.
