Chelsea Hotel #2 - Leonard Cohen

Maybe it’s this blustery-dark-grey-skies-weekend we’ve been having, but my second choice for this week is also sweetly ironic.

Oh yeah, and moody.

I’d never heard of Leonard Cohen until Sisko sent me I’m Your Man on tape for my 22nd birthday (the fact that it really was a tape should tell you how long ago that was…)

I’ve been a fan ever since, and this is my favorite.

You’ve got to love a song that nonchalantly refers to giving head on an unmade bed…

You told me again you preferred handsome men
but for me you would make an exception.
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
who are oppressed by the figures of beauty,
you fixed yourself, you said, "Well never mind,
we are ugly but we have the music."

You're not allowed to post this song - this is my song!

seriously, if there could be just one Cohen song in the whole world, this should be it, and it's all i'd listen to.
