So this morning I give to you my ultimate rainy day song: Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."
I watched about 10 versions of this video before finding a perfect one, and so I apologize for the wee ad at the beginning. I also noticed that as time passed, this song got much better. Watching the peppy 1980's versions were nearly unbearable. I like his aged, gravelly senior citizen voice much better- it fills this racy Biblical love tale with more angst somehow, but like, really grown up, wise angst.
One last thing: Isn't there more than a passing resemblance between Leonard Cohen and my dearest Anthony Bourdain? That may explain the crush I am rapidly nursing toward the curmudgeonly septuagenarian. Hm.
