Song of the day: #18 Martha Wainwright – "Tower of Song"
i like Big Len Cohen as much as the next guy, but i seem to prefer his songs as done by other people, for the most part.
Today's one of the best Cohen covers, Martha Wainwright's "Tower of Song", from the 2005 film soundtrack I'm Your Man (presumably it's also in the film, but i haven't seen that). The ghostly slide-guitar backing is perfect, and the way her voice cracks around the line "we'll never ever have to lose it again" kinda makes me want to marry her. Ahhh, Martha.
