    though it was made in DC, and I know it was a respected show -- I never saw even one full episode of the West Wing

    It may have been a European movie where I heard it -- near the end, though not the end...

    The movie most associated with Cohen's music is Robert Altman's extraordinary "McCabe and Mrs. Miller"

    I used to hang out w/ Tracy, back in the day, late 70's, early 80's), in Boston, playing subway stations, street corners and little clubs.

    Then one day she got a recording contract and was gone. None of us were the least bit surprised. ;-)

    I'm astonished. See if you can track down the pilot, during which the president throws a bunch of Christian rightwing hypocrites out of the White House. It's a great introduction.

    it seemed boring and unbelievable to me. And the characters in the parts I saw, were not like the people I've met or known who had jobs like that.

    DC is Hollywood for uglies.

    But I never gave it much of my time -- maybe it could have grown on me.

    there are only 2 network shows I watch -- Lost and Survivor. I also really like HBO's Entourage & Curb Your Enthusiasm

    Sit in a quiet, dark room and either put it on your best stereo or get out your best headphones...and just listen to his version. Do nothing else for those 7 minutes...just listen.

    Powerful song...powerful rendition.

    Then, when you're done listening, pull up Jeff Buckley's page on Wikipedia and read about his life (short read). Then come back and tell me your thoughts on it all.
    That whole album is incredible.

    Awesome! It must've been so cool to hear her on the radio having known her before the fame.



    and BTW, sometimes things just sneak under the radar. I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I hadn't the slightest idea of the awesomeness of Led Zeppelin until after High School, and I'm almost 30.
