    I Have A Friend Who Is Fascinated By Him

    and I am fascinated by her fascination. I came to understand her depth through her appreciation of his poetry. I remember a great line from the movie, Il Postino where the postman steals a poem from Pablo Neruda to woo a woman. Naruda calls him out, asking why he stole his work...

    Love This Man!

    I think Leanord Cohen has the sexiest voice and adore his lyrics.  His voice sounds better to me now than it did when he was much younger.

    Women And Leonard

    Strange Leonard Cohen fact:Men learn about Leonard Cohen through women. My wife and I tried to think of men who listened to Leonard, and realized quickly that men who do listen to him ( myself included) knew nothing about him until we were introduced to him by a woman. With the...

    Closing Time

    My favorite companion is a hundred but she's wearing something tight. I can't be the only person who sees the humor in Lenny Cohen. It's hidden behind a few dark clouds and anti depressants, but it's there.

    Uplifting Music

    I know some people might find Leonard Cohen's music depresing but if I feel depresed his music drags me back if that makes any sense a lot of his music just sounds so personal and he is a very good storyteller in my eyes a true talent.

    Far From Ordinary

    Leonard Cohen is not for everyone and I don't love all his music but there is something about him, his style and lyrics that is extraordinary. One of the songs that I love is Tower of Song: Well my friends are gone and my hair is grey I ache in the places where I used to play...

    Because.

    Because he's a ******* genius that's why. People think he's just morose but he has a great sense of humor, you've got to listen to Tower of Song. His lyrics are brilliant. I guess that comes from having been a poet and novelist. I've read all his books of poetry, and they are...

    Aging Wonderfully

    This might be Cohen at his very best. A couple of video issues but the sound is terrific and the performance genuinely memorable. http://youtu.be/EidJV2mb9h8

    Tribute
