OK, more 60's: This Leonard Cohen classic was inspired by a young dancer - the wife of sculptor Armand Vaillancourt from Montreal. Published as a poem in "Parasites of Heaven". First recorded by Judy Collins in '66, then by Cohen in '67. Covered by, among others, Nina Simone, Neil Diamond and Anni-Frid (Frida) Lyngstad of ABBA.

Yesterday's answer: "Without You". DEFINITELY among the top-10 all-time makeout songs! Carly Smithson did a wonderful version on Idol AND, of course there's always the famous "Ken Lee" video clip in YouTube from Bulgarian Idol.
