Alex Turner covers Leonard (again)

Not sure what you people will think of this (or if it's even being posted in the right space - sorry Jarkko!)

(For what it's worth, I think he absolutely butchers one of my favourite Leonard Cohen songs. Taking one of his rawest moments and making it slimy. Gross.)

Sorry, can't agree.

I'm not sure how one can butcher a song with such lines as "I was vaseline", etc.
The whole song is a magnificent prank that butchers - on its own - the poetry itself. It's witty and free, so why shouldn't we let anyone else just to continue the masquerade?

Anyway, that's great, in my opinion, that one of the finest British bands of our time (2 albums, both were #1 in the UK!!) covers LC.

They did it previously on the tour: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=36613
