Judy Collins performs "Suzanne" - 59th GRAMMYs

I don't know if this topic has already been covered, but Judy Collins performed "Suzanne" at the 59th edition of the GRAMMYs. Great performance, with Collins telling the audience how she first met Leonard Cohen fifty years ago. Transcription of Judy Collins Speech: "An honour to be he...

Re: mail columnist stephen glover comments on leonard's consumption of drugs

This is a fallacy. A logical fallacy: In logic, a fallacy (from Latin: fallacy, 'deception') is an argument or a postulate that seems valid, but it is not. And that fallacy has a name: Cum hoc ergo propter hoc (in Latin, 'with this, therefore because of this') is a fallacy that is committed by infer...

Re: New CD: LC - The Eternal Classic

This is not a new release. This compilation was released in the year 2008. I have looked for it (and found it) in the web page discogs.com, where it states: "CD, Compilation, Unofficial Release ": https://www.discogs.com/Leonard-Cohen-The-Eternal-Classic/release/2129304 According to the we...

Re: Darker Album in the charts

The Spanish music site jenesaispop.com states that You Want It Darker is golden disc (20.000 copies sold) in Spain. http://jenesaispop.com/2017/01/04/285216/you-want-it-darker-leonard-cohen-disco-oro-espana/ At the end, the article says (I translate): "This certificate adds to gold also in the ...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Hi Violet, The "you" in the song could be played by any authority figure where a person has placed ultimate degrees of faith in. (God, psychologically, is often a super-parental figure.) I wouldn't presume any particular stand-in for God for the song writer. The potency of the song for ot...

Re: Tributes to Leonard around the world

Thank you, B4Real. I myself made a transcription of the lyrics while listening to Lil' Andy's cover of the song. I have possibly commited some mistakes making the transcription, so there are a few errors... In any case, thank you for your answer. After reading your post, I found this 1992 interview ...

Re:

(...)It seems to me that when phrases like "wisdom of old" are used in a deferential sense, that what is implied is their having stood the test of time. True, that everything was a "hit" at one point; however, the majority of those hits end up with "flash-in-a-pan" sta...

Re: Tributes to Leonard around the world

From the link you put, I see songwriter Li'l Andy was one of the performers. I have looked for him in Google (I didn't know him); and I have seen he performed "Democracy" in 2013 in the same place he did the tribute to Leonard yesterday, the Rialto, with Patrick Watson and Little Scream. W...

Re: New book in Spanish by Alberto Manzano. La historia de Leonard y Marianne

I don't understand. Why would they put a photo of Christian Bale on the cover of a book about Leonard Cohen? "Although he usually appears as a clean-shaven mortal, our research team recently uncovered evidence that Leonard Cohen has experienced the dynamic moustached lifestyle". http://ww...
