OT: Take This Waltz

Take This Waltz is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, originally released as part the 1986 Federico García Lorca tribute album Poets in New York (Poetas en Nueva York) and as a single. The song was later included in Cohen’s 1988 studio album I’m Your Man, in slightly re-arranged version (with addition of violin and Jennifer Warnes’s duet vocals, both absent from the 1986 version). The song’s lyrics are a loose translation, into English, of the poem Pequeño vals vienés by the Spanish poet F. G. Lorca (one of Cohen’s favorite poets). The poem was first published in Lorca’s seminal book Poeta en Nueva York. The song reached number one in Spain in 1986. (Source: Wikipedia)
