Video: Leonard Cohen recites “A Thousand Kisses Deep”


Leonard Cohen’s recitation of “A Thousand Kisses Deep” has varied in content over the years. This compilation was created by AlanM5049, who combined the 2009 Live In London performance of the poem with the unduplicated portions of a broadcast recitation from 1997 and one from 1998. The video includes photographs and sketches by the Canadian singer-songwriter.
