Re: Name songs you would like to hear Leonard cover.

I could almost swear that I'd just answered this question.. but apparently not :D After hearing Johnny Cash's versions of the Neil Young songs Pocahontas and Heart of Gold, I'd like to hear Leonard do a Neil song. One of the acoustic ones, of course. One might think that a low-voiced singer singing...

Re: ROLLINGSTONE 500 GREATEST SONGS OF ALL TIME

Most overrated cover in history. I'd as soon listen to some screeching, horrible heavy metal music as listen to that.

Obviously, the Webb Sisters should to do the falsetto "ooh ooh oooooh" parts, but the rest of it in Leonard's voice? Yeah.

Re: New Artist with Similar Sound

Re: "10 best Leonard Cohen covers" by SF Chronicle

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEIwADZQN_o&feature=channel That's the excellent I Can't Forget. REM's rendition of Manhattan from the same album was decent, but youtube blocks it within a minute of uploading, so I can't share it. ...and I HATE HATE HATE Buckley's whiny Hallelujah.

Re: Book of Longing (Song) & Puppets-YouTube (KCRW Demo Version)

Thanks, Jason, higly appreciated! Is there a chance you can do the same with The Street, which Leonard recited in another of two 2006 interviews for KCRW radio?:) I don't think that recitation was on the radio. So far as I know, there have only been two public recitations. One was on Norwegian TV (...

Re: Hallelujah

Like many of his songs, each verse can be interpreted to have multiple meanings. The song isn't strictly about a single thing, but there is a strong theme throughout of sex, orgasms, and how these pertain to interpersonal relationships. Even the title itself can be interpreted as a climactic exclama...
