Saturday’s Song – Bird On the Wire by Leonard Cohen, cover by Aaron Neville

March 1, 2014

I first heard the Leonard Cohen song Bird On The Wire in the late ’80s after I’d watched the movie Bird On A Wire and The Neville Brothers’ version of the song played through the final scene and as the credits rolled. I’d never heard Aaron Neville and for days the distinct sound of his voice stayed with me and made a fan of me.

It was years later before I heard a Leonard Cohen version. Any of his are just so moving.

Cohen’s version is above, the Neville Brothers’ below. Either way, the song is a long-time favorite of mine.
