What do you think about the music/lyrics of Leonard Cohen? Do you have a "favorite" Cohen song? Have you ever thought of doing one of his songs? 3 questions, yet all of them are good ones!

I've almost always been introduced to an LC song that I love through a cover version - some of my favorites that I discovered have been "Hallelujah" through Jeff Buckley; "So Long Marianne," in a version by John Cale and Suzanne Vega; and "Chelsea Hotel No 2" by about a million people. :) I guess I have never really thought about covering an LC song precisely because he is so often covered... but maybe I should. I'm open to suggestions!
