Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

Of course, perhaps you should just get it over with, give it a listen, and then see how you feel. It isn't that bad -- I didn't like it at first, but then one day it sort of clicked, and I was able to appreciate its various moments. They are still Leonard's lyrics, after all, no matter what Spector...

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

Good morning 4, I don't remember him smiling much during the Isle of Wight concert, at least not one of those grins, but I would have to watch it again to be sure. Never having been clinically depressed, I often wonder about his depression and how it lifted later in life. Did it have anything to do ...

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

Hello again! I am not a coward usually, but I have yet to listen to the 5th album. I am still enjoying the first four. I keep getting (a little) obsessed with different songs. So I listened to "Joan of Arc" 6 times one day and "Lover, Lover, Lover" 4 times on another. Bits and pieces of of lyrics fr...

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

Be afraid. Be very afraid! :twisted: Eek! When the times come, I will try to make it quick and painless like ripping off a band-aid. I have a quick question. Can anyone tell me what "4 experimental music videos based on Cohen songs" are on the DVD "Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Leonard Cohen"? I am get...

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

.....Lover, Lover, Lover--It is interesting how, once you've heard this song several times, your brain learns that "lover" MUST be repeated seven times. not six, not eight, but exactly seven. Bask in this, and the three previous, albums for awhile more, your next assignment, "Death of a Ladies' Man...

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

I have been listening to New Skin for the Old Ceremony and of course, I didn't need to be afraid. My first impression was one of overwhelming surprise. I had read mixed reviews and wasn’t expecting much. I guess I need to get over that. I like him so much already, that I doubt any of his work will e...

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

I shouldn't tell you this, but I feel you are disciplined enough to not let it cause you to abandon your disciplined chronological approach to discovering LC: Imagine a considerably longer concert than "Isle" showcasing twelve albums worth of songs instead of three, performed by the same person 35 ...

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

I am predicting that you (and maybe even your husband) will be fascinated by "Isle of Wight." I don't think I am going out on a limb here. "Fascinated" is a perfect word for it! The long-awaited DVD finally arrived and we watched it last night. It should come as no surprise that I loved it, but you...

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

If you haven't already purchased them, I highly recommend both the DVD of "Live in London" and the Blu-Ray (or DVD, but the former if you have a Blu-ray player) of "Songs from the Road", ... Of course, I know you're back in the early days with his studio albums, so Isle of Wight represents those ti...

Thank you B4real! Once again, I am jealous of you all for the concerts you have seen. I am waiting for my "Isle of Wight" DVD to arrive (it is taking forever). That is the closest I will get to seeing him live.

I believe the only other time was a day later in Vancouver. I was lucky enough to be there. :D http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/leonard-cohen/2012/rogers-arena-vancouver-bc-canada-53da93d9.html (Welcome to the forum, Vickie!) Thank you Mollydog.

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

When you get past SOLAH (but, does anyone ever really get past it?).... I am really enjoying SOLAH and listen to it daily on the way to work and back, with breaks for the first two albums when I miss them. Every time I listen, I find something new and appreciate each song at another level. I am tem...

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

I only very occasionally look for others' interpretation of LC's lyrics, and to be honest, I do not necessarily try to conjure of what this or that means. I am content to let the lyrics work with my mind and create whatever imagery they do. Maybe I am just too lazy to search for "meaning." Glad to ...
