In 1967, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell had a short-lived romantic liaison. In 1966 Joni Mitchell wrote and sang a song called "Winter Lady." In 1967, Leonard Cohen wrote and sang a different song called "Winter Lady."

Quelle coincidence, eh?

To make comparison of the two songs easier, both Mitchell's and Cohen's versions of "Winter Lady" are included in this video, which complements the Cohencentric post discussion the two works at http://wp.me/p5RKSW-2mp

A recording of Joni Mitchell singing "Winter Lady" live at the Second Fret Club in Philadelphia on 3/17/1967 is followed by Leonard Cohen performing "Winter Lady" from his first album, Songs of Leonard Cohen, released in December 1967. (Cohen's "Winter Lady" was also featured in the soundtrack for Robert Altman's McCabe & Mrs. Miller)

The music playing during the introduction is Joni Mitchell's "Rainy Night House," which is based on a visit she and Leonard Cohen made to his parents' home.
