Re: No Words (tribute song to LC)

Re: No Words (tribute song to LC)

One example is album highlight "No Words," dedicated to Leonard Cohen; "I have no words, he took them all," it declares, though the song does include such eloquent lyrics as "I never knew a stranger who hurt my heart better."... This song is indeed very beautiful & touching, & contrary to what the ...

Re: MONTREAL: More information for the members

Does anyone know where Leonard's grave is located within Shaar Hashomayim Congregation Cemetery? I came across this article in Metro magazine online, by Gary Singh, about his visit to Leonard's grave; I don't think it's been previously posted in the forum. I thought it was pretty interesting, & I t...

Re: Mashup of a Sylvie Simmons song and Leonard's poem "A Thousand Kisses Deep"

That is a very beautiful & moving composition, Hartmut! How kind of you to take the time to do that for Sylvie on her birthday; I'm sure she was very touched by it, & so am I. The combination of Sylvie's sweet singing & playing, Leonard's awesome voice, & your very unique brand of compositional tale...

Re: MONTREAL: TICKETS, LINKS AND PASSWORD

For the sake of clarity, in case anyone needs this info: I also went to the evenko website this morning, as I had missed the presale, & when I requested "regular" tickets, I got the message mentioned above by Jarkko - that there are no seats available, etc.; in fact, I had already gotten that messag...

Re: September 21 - Leonard's birthday

I am struck by the fact that this year, Leonard's birthday falls on the first day of Rosh Hashanah - the jewish "head of the year" (it's a different day every year, because it's based on a lunar calendar, & it consists of 2 days). As everyone knows, the song "Who By Fire" is based on a prayer said o...

Re: New poem "Steer Your Way"

But I do have 2 questions about the lyrics- (perhaps it was asked before, but I didnt see) : in the line about the stones- is it 'injured' or 'ancient' ? and also- in the line 'who knows he will be shot' is LC singing 'he' or 'she'? Hi Einat, About the stones: It's written as "injured" (in the New ...

This has likely been discussed elsewhere, but I just noticed the written lyric for Treaty in the CD booklet: I seen you change the water into wine I seen you change it back to water too Wow, that is poor grammar.

Article on LC in Absolute Sound magazine

I don't think this has been posted here previously, & I wasn't sure where to put it, so moderators can move it if they choose to do so, but we were pleasantly surprised to find an article about Leonard in Absolute Sound. There is one little mistake in the quotation of a line, which could be either a...
