Thanks IYF. I expected to hate it (based on the concept alone), but thought your edit was very impressive and even a possible future hit in the making.

That's awesome! Thanks for sharing! I love those kinds of remixes (reminds me of the Verve remixes of old jazz classics), and Cohen has the perfect voice for it! Please do more!
I'm your fan

To UrPal and LisaLCFan: Thank you very much; I really appreciate you'd like it, but I'M NOT THE AUTHOR OF THE REMIX. I 've just post it. I think I must be honest and say it.

The nick of the author in YouTube is: ForeignWindowFrame. (Have a look at this: http://www.youtube.com/user/ForeignWindowFrame)

By the way: have a look at another remix based on a Cohen song:

Famous Blue Raincoat (Trip Hop Remix) Leonard Cohen

The nick of the author in YouTube is veach52.

I should have got cleared before...

Now that I know the author is not a forum member, I can go public with my personal view. This re-mix, rapping or whatever the name for this technique, does not resonate with me. I listened to the entire first clip to be able to assess it honestly. The other clips I stopped listening early on. When others cover his songs and poems that's one thing. But when I hear Leonard Cohen singing and reciting his own works, I like to hear them the way HE chose to present them.

As we say, different strokes for different folks.

Hey IYF,

Thanks for the clarification, and for your honesty! And thanks for the links, which enabled me to find several other Cohen remixes on youtube that are quite fun (for those of us who go for that sort of thing).

Personally, I think that Leonard would be okay with these remixes, since he always seems to enjoy other people covering his work, and this is just another way to keep his songs alive, and for the songs to reach a different audience (and, the techno fans may want to hear the originals, and then become Cohen converts!).

Cheers!
Lisa
