Re: Winter Lady belongs to which music genre?

Is it country or folk? Yes. ;-)

Charming! Thanks!

I can't help but notice a musical similarity to "Dance Me To The End of Love" (in both melody and arrangement) -- coincidence, or...?

Re: leonard made a bad choice

"i've had choices since the day that i was born" If taken literally, this line is obviously problematic, although I suspect that it may not have been intended as literally as you have interpreted it. Hyperbole is a common literary device, and one which Leonard was known to favour from time to time....

Re: "Cuff" becomes "Cough" Arghh.

Misquotes are a fact of literary life, they've always existed, they always will exist, and the internet just makes it worse, because such errors proliferate in cyberspace. Those who care should always try to seek out the original source, rather than relying on second-hand (or third-hand, etc.) sourc...

Anyway, I think the hat makes it pretty clear that these emojis show either Leonard Cohen or Frank Sinatra.

Oh, sorry, I didn't realise that you made them, I thought you'd just found them online. :oops:

In that case, well done, they're very cute!

Now, that brings back very fond memories of the shampoo and conditioner thread from awhile back (which began with a list, as I recall...).

Re: Israel Concert video 1972?

I think it is from the "Bird on a Wire" film. If you search youtube for "Leonard Cohen live Tel Aviv 1972" you'll find the "So Long, Marianne" video you mentioned.

Re: Dance Me To The End of Love

Tribute of this song by Zorita. ... On the one hand I love it, but then, I'm still trying to figure out if I hate it because it seems to take away from the essence of the song with this uptempo beat... On the one hand, I hate it. On the other hand, I really hate it. That whole "drunken gypsies on s...

Leonard Cohen's Sartorial Style

Hi All, The Globe and Mail (Canada's national newspaper) recently ran a story on Leonard's clothing style. The print version had a magazine insert with Leonard on the cover (the Jack Robinson photo), but here is the website version (same photos). https://beta.theglobeandmail.com/life/fashion-and-bea...
