In Homage To Leonard Cohen: Damien Rice Performs “Back To Her Man”


There’s a look of hunger in a women with heat,
It’s enough to lift an old man from his knees.
Like the piece of a puzzle he’s been looking for,
He was leaning to dying, now he’s coming back for more.

 

The introduction about the inspiration for “Back To Her Man” – the love and lust Leonard Cohen instills in women – would alone justify watching this video. But – the song itself and the performance are exquisite.

  1. Dear Allan,
    As one who is smitten, I’ve been trying to ponder why women found/find Leonard Cohen so attractive/sexy, even in old age. As a psychologist and one who has actually met him, what do you think is the secret of his charisma? Perhaps you should do a survey?
    Best wishes and thanks for all the posts,
    Elizabeth
