    Kym Walsh posted on Facebook: "I have very strong feelings about remakes. There's no reason to remake a song unless you can give it your own slant...that's just a cover and I think there is a real difference. I know you said your voice is better, but would it just sound more like Leonard Cohen? If you think it could sound more like Marc Gunn doing homage, then do it! I think this version sounds like a nice version of Marc Gunn doing the song. I wouldn't want to speak for Leonard Cohen, but he seemed very enthusiastic about sharing his music and verse.. if you want to do it again... do it, see how it goes!"
