Icons of NYC: Chelsea Hotel

[Chelsea Hotel - Black and White]

"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".....

That was an iconic song ("Chelsea Hotel"), describing Cohen's informal dalliances with 60's music legends in a callous &/or jaded way. But years later, and in his death, Leonard Cohen is perhaps best remembered for this purely spiritual song he spent years writing:

"Hallelujah" - Leonard Cohen

"I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah"
