From CALL ME IRRESPONSIBLE
Written by Leonard Cohen
Leonard Cohen is a true Canadian icon and one of the most gifted and influential singers/songwriters of the past fifty years. This Quebecois legend was inducted in 2008 at the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame and is also a renowned poet, novelist and painter. In 1988, Cohen released the critically-praised I’m Your Man album that had gems including “First We Take Manhattan,” “ Tower Of Song ,” “Everybody Knows” and the title track, “I’m Your Man.” This last composition sported some sensual, almost lustful, lyrics whispered by Cohen on a carpet of synthesizers and programmed drums.
