"Extensive worldwide touring"

I've only just seen this....am I hallucinating? (did someone spike my coffee?). I can't take it...Brian Wilson and Arthur Lee have cost me a fortune, these last few years. This could seriously bankrupt me!
Love, John E

Apparently it was

Nelson Eddy & Jo Stafford - "With These Hands" . I don't know it...perhaps I should buy one of those CD/cards with hits from 1951!

The Favourite Game

Well, I think I'll skip the premiere, unless I can find a package deal that includes a toboggan run (highly likely at that time of year!). But seriously, they should have made a movie of this, starring Dustin Hoffmann, in 1968...and as for using Leonard's songs as background music...forget it! Leona...

Hi Dem and Lizzie

Well, I suspect it will be a foul term, however long, but hopefully not a full one! It's true that astrologers, both Indian and Western did get this wrong - probably a bit like independent weather forecasters predicting their own holiday weather. The reasons for this are as follows: Kerry has Jupite...

Hi Lizzy

Lizzy - you got it! Bush is a man with a huge inflation and extremely large shadow that he projects "out there" (albeit onto two appropriate hooks). With his parental complexes, he is also trying to please mummy and daddy. Add to this the issues around money and oil, and the bad name he is giving to...

Hi Teratogen

I understand your anger...it is not disimilar in tone to some of the rage expressed in Leonard's mid-period writings. My own response to seeing a criminal elected to such a powerful position in the world, is the opposite to yours - namely depression. The cover of the Guardian 2 magazine today simply...

Cohen and Bush

From everything I know about Leonard, and using every mode of perception that I can muster, I do not think Leonard would have voted for Bush this time. Personally, I feel so numb today that I cannot even bring myself to play Leonard's new album. This post actually belongs to the "Cohen and Bush" thr...

Love songs

Hi Brian, Indirectly you raise an important point...Leonard has never written a love song in the "Well be loving each other forever and ever" vein! His most beautiful songs are written to departed or distant lovers (Hey - That's No Way to Say Goodbye, Aiin't No Cure for Love, The Window). When there...

Hi Lizzy and Tom

Lizzie - Yes, I am referring to the Elvis song (Blue Hawaii was where my musical journey began). Tom - Yes, I can see the similarity to Lost Canadian (pity The Faith didn't make it onto Recent Songs, instead!).
All good wishes, John E

The Faith/Can't help Falling in Love

Can anyone else detect a similarity in the melody of these two songs? (I believe that I have a live recording of Leoanrd singing Can't Help Falling in Love). Incidentally The Faith is definitely my favourite track from Dear Heather..it's brought a tear to my eye everytime I've played it. It has to b...
