OMG - I think my heart would explode.

Imagine it... the Webbs/Sharon (and Roscoe!) doing the high-pitched back up verses, along with a little dance. 8)

A lot of good ones to choose from, but "Monster Mash" is probably my favorite Leonard Cohen song.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: LJUBLJANA, July 25, 2013

TWITTER - Matej Artač ‏@matej_artac - He left the stage accompanied by laud applause and cheering and his last words to us were "see you down below!" #LeonardCohen Down below? Is that Leonard's gentlemanly way of saying "See you in hell"?? :lol: :lol: The person probably misheard - I bet he said "d...

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

Hey Mad Men, you've only got one more season to use a Leonard Cohen song.
ha! I have been thinking about this too, since the show moved into the late 60s. I kept expecting an LC song over the closing credits...

Re: URGENT: LONDON AND LEEDS RE-SCHEDULED

First of all, I agree the blame should be on AEG. As Jim Devlin said, scheduling is not Leonard's job. Obviously AEG felt that the majority of O2 attendees would not be inconvenienced by the change (and might even prefer it) - otherwise AEG would not have made the (unfortunate) decision.

Re: URGENT: LONDON AND LEEDS RE-SCHEDULED

Several years ago I’d presume the majority of this forum would just be grateful that Leonard was on tour at all, even more so now he’s financially solvent and so not forced to. Yet I hear people complaining now if their seat isn’t in the front rows, or if he doesn’t play a certain song, or if a dat...

Re: Article on Javier Mas from El Pais 2011

Because Cohen has had to fight to have this Zaragozan at the front of the stage. The American musicians' union demanded that he demonstrate that there was no American able to take the place of Mas, as is the case with any foreigner. Really?? He has never dared to correct him. Not even when he says ...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: LONDON, JUNE 21, 02 ARENA

Funny UK/US English confusion for me here. When I first read "green pants deposited onstage", I thought surely it had to be something closer to leggings? Perhaps a nod to Nancy's stockings. Because who would put pants onstage? Unless it was Anjani... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=101507072...

Re: Leonard in the german "prisma"

Helen, that was an excellent translation on your part. I do German to English translation for a living and I am impressed with your "college German". :) The "es geht um" verb phrasing - in the last sentence - can be tricky. Thanks for posting, Tina. This was a welcome distraction from my current pro...
