Re: Random LC moment I am adoring today

Last night I was flicking channels on the TV when I chanced upon a movie with a huge magical green dragon in a night scene with a small boy. Not the sort of show I would usually watch but at that very moment, totally unexpected and completely out of context to what was on the screen came a familiar ...

Re: The Flame-discussion thread

Hey Mat, I look forward to your Magical Mystery Tour ;-) I have finished my first straight through read of The Flame and found myself slowing down through the notebook section. I’m not surprised by this because as many of you know I enjoy solving puzzles and making discoveries :) So I have to consid...

Thanks Rachel,
So appropriate to include what Leonard said about Treaty!

Re: never-ending gallery

Ah Geoffrey, I am taken with the B&W "disguised" drawing because it's different and well thought out! …. I know you're going to say it only took you a short amount of time to do and I can see that it did ;-) The coloured painting you posted on 13 Jan is most compelling! It's my favourite so far in t...

Re: Treaty

Good to “see” you Rachel! Mark, this is indeed a wonderful song and here's some more info about it. I’ve just now received the same google alert from Uncut magazine posted recently in News - https://www.uncut.co.uk/news/leonard-cohen-still-looking-something-else-looking-better-108908 This section be...

Re: March 2019 Uncut Magazine

Thank you WiTS, That brought more than a tear to my eye! So bittersweet to read .... The first song I was drawn to instantly on this last album was Treaty and it still is - it really is "too beautiful" and that includes String Reprise/Treaty. I keep saying that we will indeed hear at least one more ...

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

Bev, regardiing kismet, I have always struggled with that word. Does it mean 'fate' like wikipedia says? I am not so sure. Is it more like serendipity? Vickie, I usually use the word "happenstance" as a generic one for coincidence, serendipity, luck, fate etc because I like it! But this time I thou...

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

4, For what it’s worth, my take on LC’s quote is that he’s just stating an example of how he would have to ‘further set the scene’ by adding more words in print around a particular line or word to obtain a similar scenario in song using chiefly emphasis and the inflection in his voice. We know he ha...

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

4, I really used economy of words with my last post – it was meant as the same reply for both of yours :) And the tyranny of distance strikes again! Thanks for clearing up that you meant sung and not written words. I should have twigged to that! But interestingly, it made me remember something LC sa...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

Vickie, I wouldn’t worry too much about your reaction to this book because Leonard has often said that it’s really only useful to people who find themselves in such a position as he himself did at the time when he wrote it. Everybody has to travel their own path to find answers to the big questions ...

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

Why did he change the words of Hallelujah to rhyme with "you" instead of the original "ya"? ..... and as I now see I forgot to think about Hallelujah 4, I’m not quite sure what you mean because the “you” I’m thinking of is the original word. If it helps, check out the official Hallelujah lyrics on ...

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

4, You know I’m not one to over analyse LC’s lyrics but, like you, this particular instance has always given me as I said above “food for thought.” I have a few theories on why he first changed it to “A Friend”. It’s a reasonably safe bet to say the genesis of the song is based on his life at the ti...
