Street busker likes Cohen

Post by Geoffrey » Tue Sep 04, 2012 4:41 am

I recently came across a travelling street busker. Near a little cardboard box into which one could drop a few coins was a display of three different albums available for purchase. They seemed quite professionally produced. The price was 120 krones for one, 200 krones for two, or all three for 250 krones. I bought only one out of mere curiosity, because the other two CDs didn't appear to have any of Cohen's songs, while this one had no less than four.

Perhaps he should change his name to Lenny Krone?!

A chara, – Any chance that Dublin City Council might introduce a ‘Hallelujah’ tax on Grafton Street and oblige any busker who wants to mangle Leonard Cohen’s song to pay €150 euro (€100 unamplified)?

It could greatly help expand their repertoire. – Is mise,
