It's hard to argue with those choices. I'm glad they included my very favorite Cohen song, "First We Take Manhattan"--especially the version by Jennifer Warnes.
Well, the problem is that picking 20 songs if a fool's errand ("Joan of Arc"? "Bird on the Wire"? "Story of Isaac"? "Who By Fire"? "If It Be Your Will"? "Tower of Song"? "On That Day"? “Villanelle For Our Time”? I could go on.) But it is a fine list.
