Re: September 21 - Leonard's birthday

I am struck by the fact that this year, Leonard's birthday falls on the first day of Rosh Hashanah - the jewish "head of the year" (it's a different day every year, because it's based on a lunar calendar, & it consists of 2 days). As everyone knows, the song "Who By Fire" is based on a prayer said o...

Re: New poem "Steer Your Way"

But I do have 2 questions about the lyrics- (perhaps it was asked before, but I didnt see) : in the line about the stones- is it 'injured' or 'ancient' ? and also- in the line 'who knows he will be shot' is LC singing 'he' or 'she'? Hi Einat, About the stones: It's written as "injured" (in the New ...

Re: The Darker Album: Complete Lyrics

This has likely been discussed elsewhere, but I just noticed the written lyric for Treaty in the CD booklet: I seen you change the water into wine I seen you change it back to water too Wow, that is poor grammar. Hi Steve, Thank you for pointing this out - very interesting! I'd been hearing it as "...

Article on LC in Absolute Sound magazine

I don't think this has been posted here previously, & I wasn't sure where to put it, so moderators can move it if they choose to do so, but we were pleasantly surprised to find an article about Leonard in Absolute Sound. There is one little mistake in the quotation of a line, which could be either a...

Re: Rolling Stone News on Leonard Cohen

He didn't have an American label at the moment. "My music is considered kind of eccentric in America," he said. "Record companies don't promote me with the same fervour they would someone with Top 20 potential." I thought he had always been under contract to Sony. During the final year or so of his...

Thank you to Marie & Robert Kory for sharing those very beautiful & moving words. And thank you to Robert Kory for serving Leonard so well & taking such good care of him.

Rabbi Lord J. Sacks on LC & Darker Song

Video of Rabbi Jonathan Sacks (former chief rabbi of Great Britain) speaking about Leonard & the song You Want It Darker, from a hotel room in New York. I thought it was quite moving:

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Oh my, that makes it even sadder (if that's even possible)!! Because, of course, it means that he might have had more time if that didn't happen. But who knows, maybe that did have to happen, according to some mysterious plan that is beyond our capacity to comprehend. . .but whether it had to happen...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

This is really too devastating for words. A universe that gives us a being as magnificent as Leonard Cohen must be a vastly generous & kind universe. A universe that makes him suffer & then takes him away from us must be a terribly cruel & merciless universe. A world without Leonard Cohen just feels...

I haven't heard the album yet but that word aerial rang a bell with me because of my book research and listening to many concerts and here's what and where I heard it. Maybe there's a similar verse in Treaty to the live concert one below or maybe not :) "I haven’t said a word since you’ve been gone...

Maybe she's quite a handful. I second Bev's :lol: Or, given that Rufus & his partner live in the house too, maybe they are her other "children"? (No offense intended, of course. . .)

Re: Title song 'You Want It Darker' now on YouTube and Spotify etc

Ah yes, that article...not at all sure he's right about that "edit" at 2.06 as the very slight background distortion occurs in the middle of the word "murder" from what I can make out. An edit or splice would surely occur just before or after a word, not inbetween. I reckon it's a very minor glitch...
