Oh, that's right! It is what I heard years before!

(of course, so is Husker Du).

Ummmm .... Zeep was (I think) talking about Leonard Cohen's voice ... which is why she never found a cover she liked as well as the original (which, I think was Hallelujah ... by Leonard Cohen).

And that's why the word "he" was used. I think. Of course, I get confused easily these days. And what with escape tunnels, flying pandas, androids with green fright wigs .... it's easy to become confused.

I think I'll go to bed now.

John Cale did a pretty good one on the tribute album 'I'm Your Fan' - some quite interesting cover versions on that album (but a few mundane ones too).

i agree, that is a great tribute album. the pixies version of "i can't forget" it pretty memorable. and of course nick cave (who adores leonard cohen and is his spiritual son) does a brilliant cover of "tower of song". the original of "hallelujah" is still my favorite, but i admit the john cale version is a very close second. he's got a beautiful voice as well.

Hey, I was listening to that earlier! Fav tracks are McCulloch, Pixies, Murat (tho' don't understand a word of it ), R.E.M., Cale.

But, you're right, Nick Cave's contribution puts them all in the shade - genius!

Gnashing my teeth over why some bonehead inthe lab sent a testosterone level on my patient to a lab that was different than the lab they originally sent it to, so I now have two very expensive lab tests that make absolutely no sense. Guess i gotta run over to the Vent and Rant Thread...
