Sunday morning comin’ down video: “When you’re not feeling holy, your loneliness says that you’ve sinned.”


This diaphanous interpretation of Sisters of Mercy by Beth Orton is from the moving I’m Your Man, Lian Lunson’s documentary about the momentous Leonard Cohen tribute concert of 2005.

Go rent this dvd. Don’t argue, just go. It’s got Wainwrights, McGarrigles and Thompsons aplenty, pretentious pontifications by Bono, this wonderful performance by Orton, and a show-stopping rendition by Antony of If it Be Your Will. And of course, the best part, Cohen himself, the writer, the monk, the singer, the poet, the artist.
