Video: Leonard Cohen Performs That Don’t Make It Junk – Sligo 2010

I know that I’m forgiven,
But I don’t know how I know
I don’t trust my inner feelings
Inner feelings come and go.


“That Don’t Make It Junk” was only occasionally played in the 2008-2013 Leonard Cohen tours. The Sligo performance is, in my estimation, the best video available online.

Update: While lacking the production values of the Sligo video, this recording, “I was discussing my drinking problem with Sharon Robinson. She said ‘This is very serious, we better put it to music.’” Leonard Cohen Performs That Don’t Make It Junk – Toronto 2008, offers not only Leonard’s performance of the song but also his “Drinking Problem” introduction.
