Originally recorded on his Various Positions album, and featured in Cohen’s anthology, Stranger Music, this poetic song is wonderfully married to the artworks by Henri Matisse, one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. “I had this dance within me for a long time,” Matisse once said in describing one of his murals. Although structured as a love song, the song was in fact inspired by the Holocaust.
