Two Mensches: Tom Jones and Leonard Cohen

Tom Jones' cover of Leonard Cohen's song, "Tower of Song" is amazingly powerful and touching. Tell me what you think. Check out his latest video:



I think it's a universal lament. A tribute to our shared mortality. After all, none of us are getting out of this existence alive, are we? None of us get younger. As Woody Allen once said, "I know we all have to die some day. I just thought I'd be the exception."

Of course, wishing long lives and good health to us all! Bless us and enjoy the brilliance of this performance. A great artist at his peak.
