Worth it for the opening 1 and a half minutes alone. By the time Cohen comes in, fuck it. Bliss.
Where has this been all my life. Wasted on the young mind you!
And may the spirit of this song,
may it rise up pure and free.
May it be a shield for you,
a shield against the enemy.
Just heard and saw a great interpretation by The New Standards. Great stuff. They are doing a project with Prudence Johnson in homage of Joni Mitchell, Tom Waits, and Leonard Cohen.
Pour les égyptiens et les israélites..
Can't believe I forgot how great this song was!
