Rediscover Leonard Cohen A new movie, Leonard Cohen:I'm Your Man, features probing interviews with Cohen, his powerful singing of the "Tower of Song" with U2, and a tribute concert to Cohen by a generally younger generation of artists who revere him, including Nick Cave, Linda Thompson, Rufus Wainright and the odd, adrogynous but striking falsetto singer Antony. Here's Antony's version of "If It Be Your Will." Rufus Wainright also turns in a series of great cover versions, including this witty, lilting version of Cohen's grim "Everybody Knows" litany of life's unfairness. (You double-click on the speaker icon, then click on the play arrow that pops up.) Enjoy it -- and rent the movie, and look into buying the Essential Leonard Cohen.
