Re: Posthumous album

There is no doubt I was anxious about this when I first heard about it. But these first two releases have assuaged my worries. I think they both sound like they treat Leonard's vision with the respect that is due. I actually like both videos. Something I rarely do, even when it is Leonard. The only ...

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

No one to follow and nothing to teach Except that the goal falls short of the reach Oops. Well I edited this whole post because I had misread the line as "the reach falling short of the goal." What happens when I try to put thoughts together the morning after a night out. I will have to put some ef...

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

It's nice that the lyrics are "except that the goal fell short of the reach." Leonard sometimes, heartbreakingly, questioned his own talent ("Needless to say, I am one of the fakes, and this is my story"). The first time I listened to this I expected that so strongly that I swear I heard "except tha...

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

I absolutely love "The Night of Santiago", it's another translation of a poem by Lorca (think "Take this Waltz"). I can't wait to hear it!

Re: Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love, film by Nick Broomfield

Trailer immediately reminds me of:

And now you want to marry me
You want to take me down the aisle
You want to throw confetti fingerprints
You know that's not my style

O sure I'd like to marry you
But I can't face the dawn
With any girl who knew me
When my fingerprints were on

Re: "A new album of original Leonard Cohen songs is in the works"

https://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/acordes.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MV419h-iRuo This is similar to the original 2007 CD list above but in this video the songs and poems are in a different order which I assume is probably how the concert unfolded with the exception of the encore as mentio...

Re: "A new album of original Leonard Cohen songs is in the works"

Hmmm. Gotta say I have mixed (actually mostly negative) feelings about the tribute concerts. I think I would really rather see Live in Dublin projected in-full at each venue, possibly with some form of live accompaniment or a few performances from the musicians involved directly in his last world to...

Re: Blue Alert

Might have been said before, but I always thought the title was related to an old term; "Blue Movie" (meaning pornographic). There was even a movie titled "Blue Movie". Over time the term "Blue" developed a connotation that would imply sexuality, such as "Blue Valentine" or "Blue Alert". Gotta say, ...

Joedai Warriors

I think Leonard fans will especially like this Joedai Warriors https://www.joedaiwarriors.com track, which continues to give me chills every time I hear it. This particular track sounds very late-Leonardish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXqVjZyz5qQ Overall Joedai Warriors (Who are Joe Peters as p...

Re: New compilation - Hallelujah - The Songs Of Leonard Cohen

Had no idea that Nina Simone covered anything by Leonard. I'm really looking forward to hearing that.

Re: "A new album of original Leonard Cohen songs is in the works"

While I am also looking forward to hearing the songs Leonard was working on when he passed away, I definitely feel that YWID is the most perfect and powerful ending to his career we could have hoped for and I think it should stand as his last album, not only in our minds, but officially. I very much...

Is there a particular episode?
thanks!
I'm only part way through episode 2 and there have already been two items of note - I kind of wouldn't want to say more anyway because it's kind of fun to discover little surprises on your own.

Leonard fans should watch Mr. Mercedes (also, a bit about Stephen King)

Leonard fans should watch Mr. Mercedes. Don't want to spoil things, so I'll leave it at that! P.S. It is based on novels by Stephen King. You have been warned! P.P.S. Leonard and Stephen have some similarities in writing: they hit hard, don't hold punches, are deeply insightful as it comes to human ...

Re: Leonard Cohen Lyrics That Would be Suitable for a Wedding Reading?

Well, probably too late for your needs, but listen to Love Itself. I think there are pieces of that which might work.
