madeleine peyroux – dance me to the end of love

dance me to the end of love — madeleine peyroux

wikipedia says: Madeleine Peyroux (born April 18, 1974, Athens, Georgia, United States) is a French-American jazz and blues singer-songwriter.

 

wikipedia also says: Dance Me to the End of Love is a song by Leonard Cohen. The song follows a typical Greek “hassapiko” dance path, most probably inspired by Cohen’s long lasting affiliation to the Greek island of Hydra. It was first performed by Cohen on his 1984 album Various Positions. It has been recorded by various artists and in 2009 was described as “trembling on the brink of becoming a standard.”
