Music: If it be your will

Leonard Cohen:

My brother has occasionally expressed some amusement at the fact that, despite my complete lack of religious belief, I sometimes enjoy music that isn't merely religious but actually borders on being hymns or prayers. Then I look at some of the things I listen to, like this, and... I can't really argue. The imagery still works, the plea still affects me, even if I don't think there's really anything out there to address it to.
