Scarlett Johansson – Falling Down (ft. David Bowie)


Beautiful track from Scarlett Johannson’s debut album called “Anywhere I Lay My Head”. This track was originally recorded by Tom Waits and can be found on his 1988 album “Big Time“.

from wiki:

Anywhere I Lay My Head is the debut studio album by actress Scarlett Johansson, released through Atco/Rhino Records on May 20, 2008. Dave Sitek (of TV on the Radio) produced the album, and David Bowie contributed to two tracks, “Falling Down” and “Fannin Street.” Anywhere I Lay My Head features four songs written by Tom Waits, six songs written by Tom Waits & Kathleen Brennan and one original composition, “Song for Jo.”[1] The album has received very mixed reviews, as epitomized by a 2/10 in The Times and an 8/10 in NME.[2]
