Re: The Partisan as Film Music

Hi Amrei, That movie was recently on my local SBS TV station in Australia - https://www.sbs.com.au/movies/movie/hunt-wilderpeople I never watched it even though Sam Neil is an excellent actor but maybe I should have :) Sam's nephew in the film features in a funny Lynx ad here 'downunder' in Australi...

Re: Looking for an explanation for "Seems so long ago Nancy

Hi dar, I remember some things about that because I posted a couple of relevant links some years ago. Here's Jarkko's in 2005 https://www.leonardcohenforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=3739&p=265607&hilit=Nancy#p40173 (looks like that link can't be found now) and mine in 2010 https://www.leonardcohenforu...

Re: Sheku Kanneh-Mason - Leonard Cohen: Hallelujah

I didn't watch this video when it was first posted here because I'm not one for covers of Leonard's songs - let alone but yet another "ah, oh hum here we go again" Hallelujah cover to ruin one of my favourite LC songs! But after watching (rather listening to) this now, I may be forced to let this on...

Vickie, good to see you've almost recovered!

Lisa, I wondered about that too!

Wendy, you are a super sleuth!

Re: LC wins 2018 Grammy Award for You Want It Darker!

Haha! Hartmut!

Yes, he did indeed say that a few times :)

Also another noted repeat was in both those acceptance speeches mentioned above in 2008 and 2010.
LC recited Tower Of Song......you'll be hearing from me baby, long after I'm gone....

And of course, as he said, he was right!

Re: LC wins 2018 Grammy Award for You Want It Darker!

Welcome to the forum, MargRz! He he! I remember well that statement by Leonard :) And still speaking of Rock, I also remember the time he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2008. LC said then: This is a very unlikely occasion for me. It is not a distinction that I coveted or even to d...

Re: LC wins 2018 Grammy Award for You Want It Darker!

Vickie, I hope you are feeling better! The Grammys were on local TV here a few hours after the live show and again last night and I didn’t see all of it. From what I can gather, LC’s winner’s announcement was possibly at the "pre-telecast" ceremony (officially named The Premiere Ceremony) which was ...

Re: No Words (tribute song to LC)

Glad you all enjoyed that song as did I! On both occasions, it is a wonderfully presented original tribute to Leonard! And Rachel, you are right, the word is "heard" and that is written in the lyrics of the black and white video :) I also wondered at the time of posting which is the correct name of ...

No Words (tribute song to LC)

There is mention on the forum of this Canadian folk music group The Fugitives being avid LC fans but I can't see their tribute song to him posted here before. It was written for him the day after his passing. It's on their new album The Promise of Strangers and is called No Words. One example is alb...
