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

Brings sadness to the heart...😥

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

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

Sorry Buckley fans but Cohen really is the man

Jeff Buckley was better at singing it though - MASAI97

7 Everybody Knows Everybody Knows

Dark, foreboding song that really should be Number 1!

8 First We Take Manhattan First We Take Manhattan

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