I have tremendous respect for Leonard Cohen and today is his 82nd birthday. Is it wrong for me to say that I actually prefer other people performing his work arguably more than Lenny himself? I think it’s his spartan arrangements that tend to leave interpretation to those who tackle his work. Today we play “Chelsea Hotel #2” and Lloyd Cole’s reading of it.
The original “Chelsea Hotel #2” by Leonard Cohen.
And Lloyd Cole’s cover.
