Re: Dance me to the end of love

When this cover played in the background at a restaurant a few years back, some friends commented on what a pretty song this was. I told them about Leonard's inspiration for writing it. After their reaction to me, I understood what Leonard meant when he said that "it is not important that anybody kn...
