    1. leonard cohenin janis joplin ilə chelsea hotelində yaşadığı gizli sevgini ifadə edən musiqisi. bəlkə sevgi də deyil heç, bir-birlərinə sığınma macərasıdır.
    tanışlıqları hotelin liftində olub. cohen liftdə rastlaşdığı joplindən kimi axtardığını soruşur, joplin də "kris kristoffersonu" deyə cavab verir. cohen də "bu gün şanslı günündü, mən krisəm" deyir. qadın inanmasa da, beləcə tanış olurlar, seyrək də olsa görüşməyə başlayırlar, həmişə də eyni ünvanda - chelsea hotel no 2-də. və beləcə bir növ bağlılıq kimi münasibət yaranır aralarında. janis getdikcə məşhurlaşıb, kokain bağımlısı olub və münasibət davam edib bir müddət.

    və bir gün janis çıxıb gedir... cohen onun haqqında "billie holidaydan bu yana baby sözünü ən gözəl deyən qadın idi, amma çıxıb getdi." sözlərini demişdi.

    lyricsdə cohen gözəlliyin deyil, musiqinin önəmli olduğunu qeyd edir:

    and clenching your fist for the ones like us
    who are oppressed by the figures of beauty
    you fixed yourself, you said, "well, never mind
    we are ugly but we have the music"

    gözəllik fiqurları qarşısında bizim kimi əzilənlər üçün yumruğunu sıxırdın
    daha sonra özünü toparlayıb deyirdin:
    boş ver, çirkin olsaq da, musiqimiz var...

    tam mahnı sözləri:

    I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
    You were talking so brave and so sweet
    Giving me head on the unmade bed
    While the limousines wait in the street
    Those were the reasons and that was New York
    We were running for the money and the flesh
    And that was called love for the workers in song
    Probably still is for those of them left

    Ah, but you got away, didn't you babe?
    You just turned your back on the crowd
    You got away, I never once heard you say
    I need you, I don't need you
    I need you, I don't need you
    And all of that jiving around

    I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
    You were famous, your heart was a legend
    You told me again you preferred handsome men
    But for me you would make an exception
    And clenching your fist for the ones like us
    Who are oppressed by the figures of beauty
    You fixed yourself, you said, "well, never mind
    We are ugly but we have the music"

    And then you got away, didn't you baby?
    You just turned your back on the crowd
    You got away, I never once heard you say
    I need you, I don't need you
    I need you, I don't need you
    And all of that jiving around

    I don't mean to suggest that I loved you the best
    I can't keep track of each fallen robin
    I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
    That's all, I don't even think of you that often
