Mississippi John Hurt's version of the Leadbelly classic seems appropriate this evening.

One of the best covers IMO, is Eva Cassidy's rendition of "Somewhere Over The rainbow". Stunning!
WOW, i cant believe ive only just heard of her 2 hours ago on a doco on foxtel.
I cant stop playing her songs. Her pitch perfect sound resonates my soul.
Now i know what silk sounds like.............

Ive been waiting all this time to "explain" it LOL
yeah its a tricky one, and thats been asked before
Cohen wrote it for a Jennifer Warnes album and she was the first to record it
then Cohen released his version
Cohens' "version" is slightly different to the one by Jennifer Warnes
Leonard Cohen's own quasi-synthpop version of "First We Take Manhattan" (with additional verses) was released in 1988 as the first track on his album I'm Your Man. Cohen's then-girlfriend, Dominique Issermann, shot a black and white promotional video for Cohen's version of the track.
On his 1988 tour, instead of the original, Euro-disco-influenced arrangement of both his and Warnes' studio versions, Cohen introduced the new, funk-influenced arrangement, suggested by his backing singers Perla Batalla and Julie Christensen. He continued to perform the song this way in 1993, 2008 and 2009 tours.
Cohen's studio recording plays over the closing credits of the 2009 film Watchmen.
I think technically it could be a cover of his own song
(was looking for tricky ironic ones ... sort of like the Bruce Springsteen Because The Night)

I think you're right, thanks for the enlightenment, and thanks for the Jimi Hendrix/Easy Rider clip too
