Leonard Cohen – Everybody Knows (original studio version)

I'm Your Man (Leonard Cohen album)

Everybody Knows” was first released on Cohen‘s album I’m Your Man, February 1988.

Featuring phrases such as “Everybody knows that the dice are loaded” and “Everybody knows that the good guys lost”, “Everybody Knows” has been variously described by critics as “bitterly pessimistic” yet funny, or, more strongly, a “bleak prophecy about the end of the world as we know it.” The lyrics include references to AIDS, social problems, and relationship and religion issues.
