Rufus Wainright sang on the soundtrack (cd) only. Not on the film. I've heard Leonard Cohen's version and I love part of the way he sings it and the rest is not that great. Bono also has a version and I love Bono but he doesn't sing it right either. If people want to comment at least be accurate in what is being critisized. The guy who sings on the film is a terrible singer but it's not Rufus Wainright.
