The latest leak from the forthcoming Carter IV is a case of the mentor (Lil Wayne) trying on the style of the protege (Drake). "She Will" is emo-rap, a moody ode to a loose woman, complete with a brooding beat by T-Minus and plaintive chorus rap-crooned by Drake himself. But in the verses, Wayne can't repress his playful nature, or his way with punchlines. "Some people hang you out to dry like a towel rack," Weezy raps." I'm all about 'I' – give the rest of the vowels back."

    “Bird on a Wire”

    Leonard Cohen | 1969

    While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
