    "The repetition of the title phrase suggests that Cohen has not been blessed with some unique power of perception, but that these truths should be evident to anyone who walks through the world with even an ounce of coherence. “Everybody Knows” may not deliver news on the state of the world that anyone would want to hear, but, thanks to Cohen’s eloquent words and seductive delivery, you never tire of listening to it.": https://americansongwriter.com/everybody-knows-leonard-cohen-behind-the-song/ -- Live from Dublin, here's fedora-wearing Leonard Cohen's performance of "Everybody Knows": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IfmiKnZi3E

    #155 "Everybody Knows" features in the 1990 film Pump Up the Volume as protagonist Mark Hunter (Christian Slater, as the operator of an FM pirate radio station) plays it several times during his clandestine broadcasts. A cover by Concrete Blonde is used at the film's end, and it is this cover version that made it onto the film's soundtrack album rather than Cohen's version. Cohen's original version was also featured prominently in Atom Egoyan's 1994 film Exotica, as the theme music of exotic dancer Christina when she performs at the club of the film's title....because that makes sense. https://www.kexp.org/donate/

    "[Leonard] Cohen is not alone in deserving credit for this cynical masterpiece. He wrote the lyrics and handed them off to his former backing singer Sharon Robinson in the first of what would become many songwriting collaborations between the pair. Speaking to Uncut magazine, Robinson remembered the approach she took once she got a hold of the Canadian Bard’s words. 'It’s a protest song, so Leonard wanted something tough,' she said. 'I’d bring home verses, and go to the grand piano in my living room, as his lyrics require that purity of melody.'": https://bit.ly/2WTMm8O
