Obscure Song of the Day #2

Leonard Cohen - Waiting for the Miracle

I first came across this wonderful song when listening to the soundtrack to Natural Born Killers. I went through a period in college when I was infatuated with every soundtrack to any movie Quentin Tarantino had anything to do with, and I fell in love with this song almost immediately. It has this haunting, ethereal quality to it that I really like. I dig everything about it, but most of all Leonard Cohen's voice. That's what a man should sound like, folks. He sounds like he smokes like 75 packs of cigarettes a day, and then gargles napalm. He's like the forgotten love-child of Isaac Hayes and Darth vader.
