Video: Leonard Cohen’s Heartfelt Performance Of Chelsea Hotel #2 – Rome 2013

I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
You were famous, your heart was a legend
You told me again you preferred handsome men
But for me you would make an exception


While Leonard Cohen sometimes sang Chelsea Hotel #2 in an ironic, almost sardonic manner, this rendition from his final tour (2013) is breathtakingly earnest.
