TF1 One From The Heart Reportage
One From The Heart: Un Film De Francis Copolla (1)
(Tom Waits driving car)
I'm living in Echo Park. It's mainly for all the churches, dogs and children. I've lived in this neighborhood for now ehm... a year and a half. And eh my wife and I have lived on Union Avenue since we were married. And eh... we live in the upstairs of an old home. And eh, it's quiet.
"I Beg Your Pardon" (in studio w. Greg Cohen)
It's my first experience in writing as something as large. And eh a tremendous responsibility and eh it's terrifying. But I accepted the challenge and eh... I guess I became perhaps more disciplined as a composer. And also I had to learn how to work with a variety of different kinds of people from different eh... It's like a, it's like a school you know? So that aspect of it was very different for me in having to create a piece that was going to then again fit on another piece that was gonna fit on another piece...
"Take Me Home" (in studio w. Greg Cohen)
Basically it was a simple love story: two people who have been together for five years and break up on the fourth of July and go of and then are reunited the following day and... It was a scene from a story that I wrote with Paul Hampton, called "Why Is The Dream Always So Much Sweeter Then The Taste?", and there was a scene that had a used car lot. You know, with a guy standing on the roof of a car conducting a car lot. And it was called "Used Carlotta". So I took that and I mentioned it to Francis and they used it in the junkyard scene where Hank conducts a bank of used cars with the headlights on, while Leila walks on a tightrope over the junkyard. And that's how it worked nice.

Hey you can take a little off the top, yeah you can take a little off.
But now I am feeling more that I wanna become more eh... have a little more privacy. And eh I'm not traveling as nearly as much as I was in the past. And eh. you know. eh being married and trying to create somehow a life for myself. You stand a little too much, too long.Too many clubs, theaters. It's eh very difficult to find. You find yourself being more of a, a bit of a geek, in terms of eh being able to relate on any other level. So I am trying to eh build more order in my life in that sense. And eh, so I'm sure it'll be reflected in some of my stuff.
