Shwmae Susanne Suzanne remains one of my favourite songs ever (long may it do so) - I remember, many many years ago, an interview with LC on BBC Radio in which he explained the background of some of his songs and I was amazed to discover that this wasn't about a love affai but rather based on a real...

Chris Smith Sings Leonard Cohen

I remember a review of The Edinburgh Fringe Festival about 2 years ago where there was a comedian who's act consisted of singing LC songs and embellishing them with tales from his own life. I think his name was Chris Smith - I wonder if anyone knows anything about this and whether there are any reco...

Byron I think you may have summed up this war Unfortunately, it's the dead and the wounded who they sent out there who are the ones that will have to lay in their bed. Hospital or otherwise.... .... the exploitation of the captured soldiers, and the deliberate choice of bringing war to his region, a...

Not wanting to be too controversial but the alliance has turned it's back on the international community basically saying to them: "We don't want to hear what you want to say, so we won't listen." Now the leaders of the alliance cannot turn around to the international community and say: "Why don't y...

It could be that people want to think about things rather than just post straight away (Not a problem I have) and then when they have considered their thoughts they may feel left behind. :? Again - a large number of posts are relating to poetry of the various members - maybe people don't feel qualif...

That's an interesting idea (if I'm reading it right) Those who were LC fans from the time of I'm Your Man and/or The Future may be less enthralled by TNS than someone who has been a fan prior to this. (Have I got your drift?) The older (time served) fan will accept just about any Len while the newer...

It's all very well saying Happy St Paddy's day to all (My Grand Parents were all born on the emerald isle so I'm not being disrespectful) but can anyone tell me when we have a happy Israel/Iraq/Palestine/Zimbabwe/Korea/etc day?

Sean Mc(?) In light of the dubious (allegedly) nature of the election I find your quote from " Democracy is Coming " quite amusing. I think LC summed it up better in the lines: "There is a war, between the ones who say that there is and the ones who say that there isn't. Why don't you come on back o...

There's nothing wrong with Ten New Songs - it's just not as good as past albums

Of course (Getting the thread back onto subject and away from Andrew's Banana Skins :oops: :oops: ) It could be that the original thought was covering the song " Nee Meeuw " by Bouedewijn de Groot a, I believe, dutch band. Nee Meeuw means Seagull (or so I've been led to believe) and was a cover of "...

I think somebody said earlier that it depends on your mood (or state of mind) what you regard as the most sensual.

For me, in my current state of mind, I have three
  • Iodine
    Take This Longing
    Be For Real
