Let Chris Martin Touch Your Perfect Body With Leonard Cohen’s ‘Suzanne’

Chris Martin seems like he’d react to meeting a sexy, feather-adorned harbor mystic with a nod and a “yes, quite,” which is actually the same solemn respectfulness with which he tackled Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne” on Friday. During the London Palladium concert, the Coldplay front man covered the late singer-songwriter’s 1967 ballad. The song was initially a Cohen poem published in his 1966 poetry tome Parasites of Heaven, and was first recorded as a song by Judy Collins. Give it a listen from your lonely wooden tower, why don’t you?
