Leonard Cohen albums ranked worst-to-best...Far Out Magazine

Far Out magazine's view on Leonard Cohen albums ranking....Always controversial..... Surprises to me were Songs from a Room only at No.10 and Death of a Ladies Man as high as No. 5 ..however I'll leave it to individuals to decide as to how they view this list. :D https://faroutmagazine.co.uk/leonard...

Re: Father John Misty to cover Leonard Cohen on new EP Anthem +3

Thanks for sharing. I think that most of us here appreciate that other artists are influenced by Leonard and are trying to pay homage to him with their interpretations of his songs, however we've all come across some horrendous covers. While he doesn't fall into this category, I've heard a bit of FJ...

He references Leonard in the following lines: "When you're acting like you're fine but you ain't copin' And you're listenin' to to...

...One error appears to be that the line ...."I can't make the hills" appears as "I can make the hills" on this video. Quite a difference in meaning I would suggest.

Re: EVENT POSTPONED

Dear friends, First of all, I want to stress what has been said already: thank you, Maarten, for all your efforts. It must have been a tough decision, but it was the right one, to postpone the 2020-event. My (absolutely personal!) preference would be to schedule the event in 2021. An argument that ...

Its very disappointing for all concerned and no doubt even more so for you and the team. Personally, I would ...

Last night (29th January) in episode 4 of the ITV six-part drama "Whitehouse Farm" featured a scene with 'Dance Me To The End of Love' playing in the background.
