Music Video of the Day: It’s Alright With Me, performed by Tom Waits (1990, directed by Jim Jarmusch)


Tom Waits recorded this version of Cole Porter’s It’s Alright With Me for Red Hot + Blue, a compilation album that was put together to benefit the Red Hot Organization, a non-profit organization that raises money for AIDS relief and education.

Probably the best known of the songs to come off of Red Hot + Blue was U2’s version of Night and Day.  However, Waits also brought his own unique style to Porter’s lyrics.  This video was directed by filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, who has also featured Waits in several of his films.

Enjoy!
