I like the three ages. Avoids the question: "fat Elvis stamp?"
My introduction to Leonard Cohen was Suzanne, sung by Noel Harrison (of all people) in the sixties. I still pull out that "chestnut" on occasion. John Cale told about wanting to record Halleluja, and contacted Cohen to get accurate lyrics. Supposedly he was sent a notebook full of verses, and Leonard just said, "Use as much of them as you want."
I always liked his poem flowers for hitler,
the seminal line in it
"OH to stand in the Ganges yeilding a yard of intestine!" I dont know it just stuck with me as amusing!
Love me some LC!
This song is on regular rotation in my house, and YouTube shows 48 million views for it. Wow!!
Was at college with a Leonard Cohen fan in 1970. "Suzanne" being played at high volume down the hall of residence corridor rather put me off LC.
I first heard Leonard Cohen on austin city limits, I guess in 89. then rediscovered him when natural born killers came out. when I heard "the Future", I had to have that album.
You can’t really blame LC for that, can ya?
NO worries ever about a "Fat Cohen" era.
He remained a force, start to finish. But I prefer Jeff's cover of "Hallelujah" as the truest interpretation of this masterpiece.
Very cool to see artists honored by their country. My first exposure to Cohen was "Everybody Knows" from the Pump Up the Volume soundtrack. Gave me chills.
Been listening to LC since the '70's. Took until 2009 when I finally got to see him live. (At Edinburgh Castle.) It was worth the wait.
Come to think of it, it was my ex-wife who introduced me to his music and that gig was one of the last things we did together... So, a lot (most!) of my life book-ended within his songs.
Not to change the subject, but that cat in your avatar looks part Maine Coon. No?
No idea what Trem is- one parent had long hair, the other short. He's just a moggie
His songs were my introduction to fingerpicking. Girls really liked that ...
