This cover is spectacular. Again, it shows what a poet Leonard Cohen is, has always been. Cold as a new razor blade, held onto me like I was a crucifix....I had the album with this song while I was in college, and I played it over and over on my humble phonograph. Some people loved it, others found it terrible. They judged it by his raspy, off-key voice instead of the lyrics. And the lyrics stay with you for a lifetime.
