I've found myself listening to this song a lot lately.

Mel said...

Yup--rather enjoyed the four guys doing it.
But they were missing verses, huh?

shot for some reason it keeps comin' around in that juke box in my head

Mel I liked the Norwegians too, and Jeff, and Rufus, and KD (especially KD). . .

and Mr Cohen

. . .but those last couple of verses are too good to miss really

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you

And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue. . .

Yup--I'd never heard those last few.
And you're right--they're too good to miss.

Though I do like the 'feel' to
"It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah".....

I relate to that.
