Irony profundo. This song always stops me in my tracks. Cale's version is the best I've heard yet. Thanks.

One of the magazines (Newsweek?)chose it as the best. I like K.D. Lang too.

Mathew Paust said...

Oh, yeah. K.D. owns every song she does. I'm listening to her now...

I saw Cale do a solo piano show back in 92 or 93 for his Fragments of a Rainy Season tour. He did this song perfectly.

Easily my favourite version… and I include Cohen's.

You could do an entire week of versions of this song. It's the very essence of all of Leonard Cohen's themes.

There are something like 25 versions (and that's just from well-known singers).

I like this version of this song very much. Thanks, Patti.
