This is the most beautiful song I have ever heard. It does things to my heart that I can't even describe. Leonard Cohen is a lyrical genius and one of my favorite artists ever. Simply and completely beautiful.

Some of the best lyrics ever written - Billyv

This song is the definition of beauty.

Brings sadness to the heart...😥

3 Bird on the Wire

This song plumbs the depths of the human emotion. Simply unparalleled.

An all-time classic song. Shockingly under-rated.

4 Hallelujah

Sorry Buckley fans but Cohen really is the man

Jeff Buckley was better at singing it though - MASAI97

My number one pick

Love it

5 Dance Me to the End of Love

Come on! 10th, best song ever

Absolutly perfect!

6 Anthem
7 First We Take Manhattan

Definitely my favorite Cohen song. The lyrics are a bit cryptic, but it takes you on a journey.

Should be in the top ten!

8 Everybody Knows

Dark, foreboding song that really should be Number 1!

9 The Stranger Song

Something about this cold song really makes it special

So hard to choose- but Teachers, Who By Fire, Famous Blue Rain Coat and Wating for a mirical come close.

10 Who by Fire

The Contenders

15 The Future
16 Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye
17 Avalanche

Poetic masterpiece.
"You strike my side by accident
as you go down for your gold.
The cripple here that you clothe and feed
is neither starved nor cold;
he does not ask for your company,
not at the centre, the centre of the world."

18 One of Us Cannot Be Wrong

I burst into tears whenever I hear this song.

19 Sisters of Mercy
20 Ain't No Cure for Love
21 Chelsea Hotel # 2

Underrated

Based on a poem!.
