If you’ve been listening to too much Napalm Death or sitting around smoking crack and staying up for days masturbating to progressively more depraved porn, then you may need a little balsam for your soul. If you aren’t moved by this clip of Antony singing Leonard Cohen’s If It Be Your Will, then congratulations: you are robot.

I normally don’t like it when other people sing Leonard Cohen songs. They always seem to emphasise the wrong bits and turn all that pathos into bathos, so the song ends up as rotten tear porn for white bread shit like the OC, but Antony really nailed it. Here is the same song being sung by Leonard. His voice is amazing, it’s an aural equivalent of old an map, all yellow cracked parchment.
