Rio Bravo

What if Stumpy had kissed Chance back? What if Chance took the little man in his broad arms And cocked his carbine harder? Would his swagger have suddenly made sense to us? Would all the pieces have come together? Would he have put on the dress he modeled for Carlito? Would he have sent that woman o...

Cotard

For me there will never be a moment
Never a now
Never a real past
I died a thousand years ago
And now I am my own ghost
Haunting my own life

Three hundred years from now, 90% of what we consider great will be forgotten, but the atomic men of that time will still listen to LC. He will in fact be preserved in head form.

I suspect the chord progression itself (I–vi–I–vi / IV–V–I–V / I–IV,V–vi–IV / V–V/vi–vi–vi) actually is a secret reference to something in the Torah. Surely he wouldn't actually describe the progression just to fill in some lines of the song, so the progression from fourth to fifth to minor fourth t...

Without the broken Hallelujah, how would the light get in? I like this phrase from the original lyrics: You say I took the name in vain I don't even know the name But if I did, well really, what's it to you? There's a blaze of light In every word It doesn't matter which you heard The holy or the bro...

It's one of the greatest songs of the 20th century. You can't "ruin" it--it can only ruin you!

And here's John Cale's version, which is a cleaned up and reorganized version of LC's live version as far as I know. The Wainwright version appears to be a slightly altered variation of this version.

Here's the version I know of as the original LC version: Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah Lyrics Now I've heard there was a secret chord That David played, and it pleased the Lord But you don't really care for music, do you?

Versions of Hallelujah--are all approved by LC?

There seem to be an array of variations on "Hallelujah." I know of two basic versions from Cohen himself, the original version "priestly" version and the subsequent live version which has a focus on interpersonal love. Then there's the Wainwright version and the Buckley version, among others. What I...
