Ge hebt zo van die mannen die gezegend zijn met een diepe, rauwe, sexy stem. En die sexy liedjes kunnen zingen. (Waarom vind ik dit sexy? Ik vind dit sexy!). En hoewel Leonard Cohen niet in de buurt komt van Elvis Costello als deze ‘I want you’ zingt, wil ik gerust wel trouwen met de eerste vènt die dit liedje onder mijn raam op zijn gitaar komt tokkelen…

Suzanne takes you down
to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
And you know that she’s half crazy
But that’s why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China
And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her
Then she gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you’ve always been her lover
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you’ve touched her perfect body with your mind.
