Video: Leonard Cohen Goes Intense On “I’m Your Man” At 2012 Wembley Arena Concert

I’m Your Men – The Multiple Editions

Over the years, there have been many variations in Leonard Cohen’s performances of “I’m Your Man.” Some versions are smoldering, some are raunchy, some are low key, some are comic…

The audience at the Sept 8, 2012 Wembley Arena show was treated to an iteration that was especially intense and almost primal. Near the end of the song, in fact, Leonard is enacting the lyrics:

And I’d claw at your heart
And I’d tear at your sheet

Thanks to an outstanding video by , we can view that performance.
