Ten random things: Reader Request Month, day 43

Ten musical artists who have covered songs by Leonard Cohen:

  1. Strafe Für Rebellion ("Sisters of Mercy")
  2. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds ("I'm Your Man" and others)
  3. Katie Melua ("In My Secret Life")
  4. Don Henley ("Everybody Knows")
  5. Roberta Flack ("Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye" and others)
  6. Judy Collins ("Story of Isaac" and others)
  7. John Cale ("So Long, Marianne" and others)
  8. Josh Ritter ("Chelsea Hotel No. 2")
  9. Allison Crowe ("Joan of Arc" and others)
  10. Palace Songs ("Winter Lady")

This is the list I alluded to a few days ago, the one that I was originally meaning to use to fulfill abby20's request for Leonard Cohen. But that didn't work out, so I repurposed it to satisfy thewalnut's request for Josh Ritter. Just as well I couldn't use it the other day, since I didn't have any better ideas on how to fulfill this one. I had to scuttle the one idea I had when I realized I was getting Josh Ritter confused with Joshua Radin.
