Re: Article in the Guardian about Leonard and Hydra

Thank you Hugo!
I will be awaiting a chance to read her book. I cannot find it available yet, but I won't give up easy. ;-)

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Sorry for my above typos... I was writing with my grandchild on my lap. Which by the way, we were listening to Georges Dor's La Manic as I fed him his bottle, and he loved it! Proving that he is already wise beyond his years at 3 months!

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Yes, thank you for further info on The Night of Santiago! I remember commenting to Dave when I first heard it that it was a very sexy song for a man in his eighties to write (and he has Leonard to thank, that I will expect no less from him when we are older, lol). I was about to look up how old Lorc...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

4! What a great invitation to discuss the final albums. Thank you for your story (account, interpretation… etc.) of the final contributions of our hero/priest/leader after his being financially raped by Kelly. As someone who was not following him during his final years onstage and in the studio (rem...

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

Although we saw this at a local theater (and loved it, of course), we have just ordered a rental of the DVD through Netflix. It is not available on their streaming account, only on their DVD rental platform. They have just notified us that that it has mailed. I will let you know if there is anything...

Re: Another film about Marianne's life & Leonard & Hydra

for anyone not acquainted with the norwegian language it might be wise to wait until subtitles are embedded, otherwise a lot of interesting details will be missed So true Geoffrey, but I couldn't resist watching it anyway... Even though I will need to wait for the subtitles to understand the detail...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hi 4!- Re the short Verse 8, if we conjecture that the words are dealing solely with romantic relationships, they take on a bit of a disagreeable tone Sorry, when I said that this song was romantic, what I tried to say (not very well) is that romance doesn't just have to do with what happens in a re...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

A real enigma with "Happens to the Heart" is the short Verse 8: "I was handy with a rifle my father's .303 I fought for something final Not the right to disagree" The only interpretation I have come up with is, "you know, thinking back, the words I wrote all these years were really on the mark, and...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Jean,
Thank you for the link of Sílvia Pérez Cruz singing Pequeño vals vienés. How very, very beautiful!
And yes, I did recognize your signature in the song (and poem) and have often wondered why you chose that particular line.

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Thank you B4 for your always revealing thoughts and back-story information on lyrics I noticed on Instagram that people are already declaring a favorite song on TFTD, but I don't know how they can, given the truth that 4 pointed out-- the more you hear Leonard's words, the more you discover. But I d...
