But as I’ve heard this song—“Dance Me to the End of Love” (1984) by Leonard Cohen—a countless number of times, it’s fair to select this one as that one favorite. No matter how many times I hear it, I don’t ever feel surfeited. Each listening, far from diminishing its loveliness, only intensifies it.
If I were asked to name one of my favorite songs, I couldn’t—off the top of my head. That’s because I’m fond of so many tracks.
