Re: Old Ideas in De Volkskrant (Dutch News Paper)

Re: Old Ideas - Memorable lines

' Yeah, but frankly I don't like your tone' This is from 'Different Sides'. It's been running through my head since I first heard it. :D :lol: Yes that line does repeat in the ear, like the very last line of the song and the album... There are many, many, many memorable lines there, but some stick ...

Re: OLD IDEAS - THE PRESS RELEASE

Going to resist the temptation until the album is in my hands. But please tell me what you made of Amen. I'm really hoping it's one of the major heavyweights (if indeed there are any) on the record Sorry, didn't mean to make it difficult for you. But your waiting will be rewarded. It touched me dee...

Re: OLD IDEAS - THE PRESS RELEASE

I have found it on 1HOUR AND 51 MINUTES (using a pop up- "beluister in een popup"). Mesmerizing. Thanks Wijbe (and Liesbeth & Bart)! Good. Of the 6 I haven't yet heard, it is arguably the one I'm looking forward to the most. That and Amen. You can listen to 'Amen' at 28:30 minutes and after that to...

Re: Fan Thoughts on "Show Me The Place"

to tell the truth as far as I'm concerned Leonard could sing alphabet Yes I probably would too ;-) . His voice and the music gets you inside where it matters no matter what words. But if truth be told, the knowledge that there is more to his songs than just the letters,the sound of the words, his v...

Re: Fan Thoughts on "Show Me The Place"

Holydove, scocoh, imaginary friend, The very first time I heard this song I was also struck by the reference to biblical texts. In some way it reminded me of the struggle of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. It was, among other, this sentence: ‘I can’t move this thing alone’. But also the whole dri...

Re: OLD IDEAS - THE NEW ALBUM

I, too, am excited by the fact that all (but one) of the songs on Leonard's new album will be brand new (despite my inital surprise at the omission of the other "new" tour songs)! The more new songs, the merrier! It's almost more exciting this way! We can still listen to all the live recordings of ...

Re: The Night Comes On

Mat, Wonderful reading your interpretation.

This is also the image that I see when hearing the lines "under the marble and the snow".

Re: Random LC moment I am adoring today

Walking away from a graveside after a very sad funeral of a dear relative, we came upon this inscription on a head stone. A reminder. The light did come in at that moment.

Re: Paper Thin Hotel

The “Naked Angel” is his Soul. Hi Mat, Yes I will hang onto my own interpretations. Much as I love reading your ‘mystical’ explanations of many of Leonard Cohens songs. In this song I cannot really read that ‘the naked Angel’ is analog for Leonard’s soul. ‘The struggle mouth to mouth and limb to li...

Re: Lover, Lover, Lover & Rumi

Rachel Holydove, In the Rasky film, The Song of Leonard Cohen, I think that he also sings this version of Lover Lover Lover. I heard it and was facinated by it. Yes, he sings it so passionately, you almost feel his pain. Like you I spent hours listening to the different '79 versions and wrote out th...
