“I know that some girls like my songs, but a lot more like the Bee Gees.” Leonard Cohen Performs To Love Somebody By The Bee Gees – 1980

I know that some girls like my songs, but a lot more like the Bee Gees. Girls like singers. There are different roles that seduce people and singer is one of them.1

 

Leonard Cohen

 

A few years before making that observation about the Bee Gees, Leonard performed their hit, To Love Somebody, at the November 5, 1980 Eppelheim concert. The video is provided by messalina79.
