Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

A nice piece from the New York Times: www.nytimes.com/2019/11/19/arts/music/leonard-cohen-thanks-for-the-dance.amp.html One of the most elegiac songs, “Moving On,” is a tribute to his former lover and muse Marianne Ihlen; Adam said his father recorded the vocal take heard on the album in late May 2...

Re: Happens to the Heart - song and video released

Seems that Happens to the Heart marks the first E (explicit) song of Leonard Cohen. Probably because of the line "Meeting Christ and reading Marx" ... Or, because of, "I got my shit together". "Shit" is a word that is regularly bleeped out of anything broadcast in America, with their charmingly pur...

Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Photo Credit: Kezban Özcan I can't really determine whether or not this is an actual Polaroid photo, but from what I can see on a high quality image of the photo I very much doubt it: I think they photoshopped the photo to resemble a Polaroid... Any info re who took the promo photo? Is this an auth...

Checked every LC song on Spotify.

Re: Happens to the Heart - song and video released

Btw- In that first 2014 interview you posted, LC also mentions that there was one particular song he’d like to finish before he dies. He says it’s a lovely melody that he’s been trying for a good 15 years to find the accompanying suitable words. With the benefit of hindsight, I reckon that should r...

Re: Posthumous album

And as for the video version of “Happens To The Heart”, my reservations are even stronger. In principle there is no problem when video artists find inspiration in a certain LC song and create their own images, but we must not be given the impression that this is an “official” release, because LC ha...

Re: Happens to the Heart - song and video released

WiTS, That does make sense and you probably know that two of the poem lines vary even though both versions (The Files and The Flame) have the same date on them. It does make you wonder what was written when :) Yes, Beverly, this really gives me a puzzle. I've double checked the Files version and Th...

Re: Happens to the Heart - song and video released

I guess the lyric version is much older than the poem. In a Sep 14, 2014 article of Rolling Stone: How do you know when a song’s working? You can pretty well tell. We play it for select people, like my daughter – there’s a few people who aren’t afraid to tell you that it isn’t working. We had anothe...
