Re: Trying to be a T*rt

"I'm Your Man" would be the wrong message (I think) what I'm really looking for is something that says something similar to "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad" (Meatloaf) as in I want you, I need you, but there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you although that's still not quite right the message - never m...

Trying to be a T*rt

I'm looking to compile a Cohen CD for a friend of mine (sadly she is married) to express my feelings for her apart from the really obvious (Take This Longing, Tonight Will Be Fine, Master Song, Lady Midnight, Bird on The Wire, Stranger Song, One of Us Cannot be Wrong, Sisters of Mercy [even though I...

Re: Help me!! :)

... My teacher demand me the reasons and the sense of all the elements I can see in the image... I'd say you need a new teacher, that's a pretty miserable way to look at art. Art is open for interpretation, there is no one reason, no official "sense" to it, it's all about how it makes you, subjecti...

Re: A horrible person

I think if you look at the lyrics of the whole song then you will agree with John he is talking to "God" and refers to "It was you who built the temple"

It also gets a lot of responses on this thread viewtopic.php?f=9&t=16719&start=15#p188490

Re: Cohen on Coronation Street! (not Boogie)

As there are quite a few 'Corrie' fans here, I thought I would revive this old thread in order to add a further Leonard Cohen reference. Last Friday's episode had Ryan Connor playing (on guitar) and singing Hallelujah at the end of Tina and Jason's houseparty. I'll only accept Leonard is big time w...
