Leonard Cohen quoted in Telegraph 41, p. 30 . . .

"He said, I like this song you wrote called Hallelujah. In fact, he started doing it in concert. He said, How long did that take you to write? And I said, Oh, the best part of two years. He said, Two years? Kinda shocked. And then we started talking about a song of his called I And I from Infidels. I said, How long did you take to write that. He said, Ohh, 15 minutes. I almost fell off my chair. Bob just laughed."
