Biggest out-of-context abomination: Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah scoring a sex scene in Watchmen or being played at a wedding?
Depression/Leonard Cohen phase continues. Beard continues to grow.
Si tuviera una voz como la de Leonard Cohen, iría por la vida cantando a las féminas y viendo como sus calzones se deslizan por sus piernas.
If I had a voice like Leonard Cohen's, I'd go through life singing to the females and watching their panties slide down their legs.

The Rolling Stones play Auckland on April 5. The last hurrah (again)? Might have to give that a nudge

bah old men running around on stage don't do it 4 me anymore. Give me Leonard Cohen & (unfortunately NOT) Lou Reed any day!

Ha. TBH my expectations aren't stellar, but they're the first band I was ever obsessed about & my 8 year old self is keen
(re: the above. I love how Leonard Cohen is offered as an alternative to "old men running around on stage.")
Peter Barlow playing Tom Waits & Leonard Cohen in the flat. Gone up massively in my estimation. Massively.

Leonard Cohen, your music is godly.
I feel like what the 2010s need is a good minor-key cover of Leonard Cohen's "Democracy," with the hook played on a bassoon.
There should be a U. N. resolution that confines the playing of Dan Fogelberg's "Another Auld Lang Syne" to the week before NYE. #discuss

At Starbucks in Lima, 10 pm, hearing Leonard Cohen on sound system, "Hallelujah."
no encuentro el disco de homenaje a Leonard Cohen que me regalaste. Lo quiero otra vez. Con emergencia Es el clima
I can't find the Leonard Cohen tribute CD you gave me. I want it again. Urgently. It's the weather.
I got myself a blue raincoat, I couldn't resist the Leonard Cohen's reference.
Remember seeing #LeonardCohen @HammersmithOdeon in 79 with a beautiful boy who smelt of weed & patchouli! #wistful
Oh yeah, a mellow saxophone version of "Hallelujah". I think Leonard Cohen just threw himself off the Tower of Song.

Ooo dum dum dum, ah ooo dum dum.

Fortunately they've tied him to a table, right there, in the Tower of Song.

I just wish the Jazz Police would crack down on whoever made these saxophone covers.

Their holy books open wide, doctors working day and night, but they'll never ever find the cure for saxophone covers.
I don't care about the "Hallelujah" covers. Leonard Cohen - the original - is the best. Original Gangster Hallelujah
Today's the kinda day where ye sit in a dark room yourself lighting matches n blowing them out to Leonard Cohen

Youngest (10) just did the full existential "what is the point of waking up in the morning it's the same every day I can't stand it!" bit
