First We Take Manhattan and Closing Time on MTV and VH1

Thanks to the Rock Hall and the Tour, I guess! MTV and VH1 used to play Leonard Cohen's music videos for First We Take Manhattan and Closing Time when they first came out in 1988 and 1992, and now at long last, MTV and VH1 have decided to treat Leonard Cohen like every other artist who has made music videos and they've added his music videos to their websites so fans can watch them online whenever they want. This comes after the rock hall induction and the tour! First We Take Manhattan last played on TV in U.S. in September of 2008, on Labor Day on VH1 CLASSIC. I watched it! It was an 80s marathon. It played at four o'clock in the morning. Closing Time has not played on TV in the U.S. since 1993.
