First We Take Manhattan – Song Of The Day

Manhattan

“First We Take Manhattan” was first recorded by Jennifer Warnes back in 1986 and soon enough we finally got Leonard Cohen‘s take on it. Cohen wrote the song and his version was far moodier than Warnes’. The gloomy vocals leading us to an unexpectedly upbeat disco-esque chorus which, some might say kills the song, others might say make it. Either way, this is a cool track which can be found on the album I’m Your Man.
