Cohen, We’re Ugly but we have the Music

Chelsea Hotel #2 by Leonard Cohen features some of the best lyrics when it comes to popular songs. The song is said to be about Cohen and Janis Joplin so it should be tellin:

“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.
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
who are oppressed by the figures of beauty,
you fixed yourself, you said, “Well never mind,
we are ugly but we have the music.”

Get the picture? Here is a video with Spanish subs from some concert in San Sebastian in 1988:

Leonard Cohens Chelsea Hotel #2 har den bästa texten när det gäller poplåter liksom. Det heter att låten handler om Cohen och Janis Joplin som hängde i New York nån gång förr i tiden, vem vet… kolla videon då och lyssna! Den är gjort i San Sebastian 1988 eller nåntng sånt.

Chelsea Hotel #2 von Leonard Cohen beinhaltet einige der besten Zeilen, wenn es um Texte von populärer Musik geht. Es heißt, dass der Text von Leonard Cohen und Janis Joplin in einem Hotel in New York handelt. Aber wer weiß!
