Leonard Cohen: Because of (2004)

The equation seems simple: Leonard Cohen the self-described "ladies man" + women + bed =

But of course nothing is ever quite that straightforward with a Jewish Zen Buddhist poet-cum-singer and unlikely sex symbol even his mid 70s.

Here with amusing self-effacement he confronts aging, his reputation, plays with images of "naked" women bending over the bed . . . 

This lovely song is from Cohen's album Dear Heather.
