    You are correct, Steve. I sent the wrong URL. This is the one she did from the tribute in 2017. Maybe it's that now Leonard has passed, or maybe it's me, but I think the tribute concert version is even better!

    Well I may have just heard the most moving version during the PBS special "Leonard Cohen - Tower Of Song". KD Lang kicked butt with with a gut busting, passionate and soaring rendition of this song. Her phrasing of the lyrics was perfect.

    SORRY> I didn't know this was the same version that was posted above. It deserves to be heard.

    I've sold a couple pair of speakers using this song, but my go-to is the Pentatonix version. It is not a flawless recording, but it can stir the soul.

    I wish this was more than 2 verses long, but the format of the show means you only have about 2 minutes to make an impression:



    She won the show with this one:

    I LOVE Pentatonix - and their version of this song is excellent - but totally different from KD Lang's. Their music is just fun to listen to as is "Straight No Chaser".

    And to wander even further Off Topic: Check out Straight No Chaser's "It's All About The Bass"

    I find Leonard Cohen as transcendent as it gets, so happy I saw him a few times live. This was interesting as it was performed immediately after Trump was elected:
