this is my FAVOURITE video on youtube
Finally catching up with Leonard Cohen thanks to a ridiculously low-priced Amazon box.
My second ever jam was a cover of this song. In light of the recent sad news, I'm feeling reflective, so here's the original.
At #70 in my all time album list is I'm Your Man by Leonard Cohen. I think this performance of First We Take Manhattan is rather mesmerising, actually. Enjoy the Italian subtitles - couldn't find a decent enough version without them!
Still in awe about seeing Leonard live on Sunday night; have had Manhattan(s) on my mind this week ;-)
For a short time this my favourite REM song, then I found out it was Lenny's. Then it was my favourite Leonard Cohen song. Happy 80th to the poet.
