Regardless of all the rest of the cases, there are those instances where a male and female doing a song together just really works magically.  Here’s two.  The second has no visual but that will be easy to ignore.  Both real gems.

Cohen back on stage in Tel Aviv

Veteran singer Leonard Cohen took to the stage at Ramat Gan stadium on Thursday night after breaking an Israeli record when all the tickets for his show were sold out in less than 12 hours, despite costing between NIS 1,000 and 1,200.

Seconds after Cohen took to stage in his legendary tailored suit and hat the 75-year-old singer-songwriter softly uttered a Hebrew prayer in front of some 50 thousand people curious to see how the frail looking man planned to overcome the distance between the stage and the people tens of meters in the back.
