Re: Request For Help: Songs By Others Praised By Leonard Cohen

heard a rumour from the user telltale on the expectingrain forum, namely, and i quote: 'Brownsville Girl would redeem a priest! It's a masterpiece - and it's only behind George Jones and Joni Mitchell in Leonard Cohen's favourite songs as reported in 1988.' http://expectingrain.com/discussions/viewt...

Re: Cohen on the Grammys

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Leonard looked and sounded so great! He also recited the Tower of Song when he was the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame recipient. At that time, as meaningful as it was, it seemed to be coming from someone whose career was over. As we know now, the best was about to happen...

Re: Iranian Canadian Journalist saved by L. Cohen

It says I'm not allowed to view the Daily Show video in my country! How do I see it :?: By the way, this reminded me that I had a very nice dream recently that Garry Shandling of The Larry Sanders Show was going to be interviewed on The Daily Show.

Re: 667 concerts and counting...

Isn't bad for someone who became a musician at a late stage, but The Grateful Dead have played more than 2300 live concerts according to Wiki.

Re: How to flag Valencia clip as inappropriate

I read about the video here this morning and then I did watch it. I feared for the worst - but I have to say – I was greatly relieved. I think our wonderful Leonard Cohen handled his collapse as well as he could – as he does with everything - with great dignity. The video also captures the immediat...

Re: Hallelujah! It's back!!!!

Glad the German Hallelujah is back; equally glad it's not one of the first Cohen videos you see when you look for him on YouTube.

Maher is probably jealous because Cohen is funnier than him.

Re: "Leonard Cohen Live in London" > DVD & 2CD (April 2009)

I've always liked Christgau - the only critic who mentions Randy Newman enough. But I'm not sure what the point of Carolyn Kellogg's article is about - just saying they aren't too far apart in years? Can someone also explain (I'm kind of dimwitted today) what Christgau meant by: 'But it barely sold,...
