Re: Leonard Cohen, contender for Nobel Prize for Literature?

Google translate strikes again! :lol: The other author is Roberto Vecchioni (which Google translated as Roberta Flack). THIS Roberta Flack http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roberta_Flack was probably pretty excited for a minute...if the rumors reached her. :lol: Anyway, exciting, wonderful news. I hope t...

Re: Is It Just Me....

Hi Zimmy, No doubt I'll come up with some kind of report for London, but even though the show hasn't happened yet, may I be the first to post some tweets from it... " Oooh, isn't he lovely!" " Where's Dino? He's always been my favourite member of the band, " I hope he sings "Hallelujah" , that's th...

Re: The birds they Tweeted at break of day...

I love tweets like this because I SO remember this feeling (5 years ago now): Currently falling in love with Leonard Cohen's music. Where have you been all my life? Sadly, I have similar conversations all the time: Telling hairdresser I was at a concert last week. "Oh, Macklemore?" "Eh... Leonard Co...

Developing a men's fragrance based on a dream I had of falling asleep in Leonard Cohen's coat closet.
Love this one.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Odense, Denmark, August 17, 2013

Great videos Henry! (and thanks for posting, Linda!) Did anyone else notice Hattie's hand signals in In My Secret Life?? Starts around 0:30. What is she doing? So nice to see Heart with no Companion too. When I finished watching it I realized I had been grinning at my computer like a lunatic for the...

Re: Kris Kristofferson Interview (mentions LC)

Very interesting what he says about Bird on the Wire. I looked up the Lefty Frizzell song on YouTube and the melody really is similar.

Re: Does Leonard deserve a standing ovation for his UK dates

Foxwood was not saying that Leonard has never received a standing ovation. He is saying it has never happened after the keyboard solo in Tower of Song. I think it's a great idea and I say - go for it! I hope to see video. I would be standing right along with you if I was there. Of course Leonard has...

Re: The birds they Tweeted at break of day...

Have a suspicion Leonard Cohen is secretly decent gym music. Absolutely true. More than decent. I find it to be the best music to run to. The song lengths are conducive to making a challenge for yourself, like "I will run _____ distance during Waiting for the Miracle." Also, Hallelujah is great for...

Re: Michael Caine quotes Leonard

It seems to me that the quote is misused. His wife dying is the crack. The young woman is the light. hmmm...good point...but I think the young woman is the crack because she has cracked his protective shell of mourning/grumpiness/resignation. She's disrupted (cracked) his life (in a good way) and t...

What's the word Leonard sings right before "church?" It isn't "empty."
"broken"
