Cover Thursdays: I Don't Even Think Of You That Often

Leonard Cohen undoubtedly has one of the most iconic voices in music, which can only be outdone by his poetic lyrics.  It's not all that often where you can read lyrics without the accompanying music, and still be effected on the level.  Cohen's lyrics always find a way to do that very thing.

Sean Rowe's booming voice is as close an you can get to Cohen's.  Here's Sean Rowe performing "Chelsea Hotel No. 2".  For those who don't know the background of this song, Cohen wrote it about an encounter with Janis Joplin.
