Just thought I’d put this up to mark the passing of Leonard Cohen.
As y’all know, I love this song, so much that awhile back, I asked Phillip and other musical sages here on the blog to help me understand why it was so awesome…
Interestingly, the song almost never reached a wide audience, thanks to the myopia of a record executive.
It’s almost certainly his most covered song, which prompted him to say, “I think it’s a good song, but I think too many people sing it.” See one of the less conventional video versions below.
Anyway, thanks, Leonard, for spending five years writing it. And for all the rest….
