7. Leonard Cohen, Chelsea Hotel video here by Lana Del Rey in a stunning tribute to Leonard

 

Chelsea Hotel (c) Leonard Cohen a song Leonard wrote to and about the late Janis Joplin years later
as sung in tribute in this video by Lana del Rey.

(just two paragraphs of the lyrics)

I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,
you were talking so brave and so sweet,
giving me head on the unmade bed,
while the limousines wait in the street.
Those were the reasons and that was New York,
we were running for the money and the flesh.
And that was called love for the workers in song
probably still is for those of them left.

---

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."
