Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."
I've listened to a version of this done by Willem Dafoe some time ago but after reviewing it, itm wasn't the same version of the poem. It was a concept album by Lou Reed and the lines were re-written for the studio version. As to why? I don't know. But it should be a crime to mess with a classic. Other than that, the Dafoe version is wicked good despite the departure from the classic lines.
