    mattgood14 down below says it best -- I'm not usually a big fan of covers but Leo's songs are so great for drama, heart and soul to be interpreted!

    I feel its a toss up...the raw intensity of Cohen, who is essentially "reciting" the song, or the inflection and pageantry of Rufus. Both serve the song well, but in a different way. When I want to feel like I'm seeing these events acted out...its this version. However, when I want to put the emotion I need to on this song...it's Cohen's all the way. One of the most beautiful parts of Leonard's music is it's malleability across artists and performances.

    he takes perfect lengths and shorts with his intonation, compared to the original
