Steer Your Way & The Battle Hymn Of The Republic

The other day a friend of mine pointed out the similarity between "as he died to make men holy, let us die to make things cheap" in Steer Your Way and "as he died to make men holy, let us die to make men free" in The Battle Hymn of the Republic (https://it.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Battle_Hymn_of_the...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

From the title track to this last verse, the question of faith on this album seems to be conveyed from quite a different place than that from which Leonard sang on If It Be Your Will or Hallelujah. That's exactly what I meant. I'm not quite sure that's a faith issue. I don't think he lost his faith...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

I can't get over how well Leonard's singing across the whole album.. Sublime. Absolutely true, Bennyboy. His voice, intonation, and interpretation are just outstanding throughout the album. Also, I don't usually like to search for meanings and explanations of lines and songs; I like to let be ambig...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

The album is... is... I don't know, just wow! I think It Seemed the Better Way is one of the best songs Leonard has ever written, along with If It Be Your Will. It's incredible. The way he sings "But it's not the truth today" the second time makes me cry. It's THE song, the absolute song. I have no ...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Funny voices from the other side of intimacy. One's post in a facebook group dedicated to LC: I'm afraid I'll have to join the boycott of L. Cohen's new album because some 'clever' people told him to appear with a cigarette on the front cover. There's no place for people (even a such a great Artist...
