Leonard Cohen digs out his acoustic guitar for this country-folk ballad. It is one of three tracks on Old Ideas to feature his finger picking.
The song is an ode to a fading love. "I'm old and the mirrors don't lie," Cohen croons. The 77-year-old songwriter-poet penned the tune with Anhani Thomas, who has been his long-term girlfriend keyboardist and backup vocalist. She originally recorded it the tune on her 2006 album Blue Alert. Cohen explained during a press preview of Old Ideas in London (as reported by The Sun): "It's quite a different treatment but I always loved that song and I asked her to reduce it to guitar chords that I could master. Her piano is so much more subtle and the chords are so much more sophisticated than the ones I could finger on my guitar. So she reduced it to chords that she knew I could play. We rehearsed it for a while and then did it in one take."
The video for Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" pays homage to the classic 1995 film Clueless with the rapper playing Cher and featured singer Charli XCX portraying Tai. It was filmed at some of the same locations used in the movie.
Angus Young created the distinctive opening guitar part for "Thuderstruck" by playing with all the strings taped up, except the B. He learned the studio trick from his older brother George Young, who was the rhythm guitarist for The Easybeats.
