Re: Reappraised LC songs in light of the current tour

Hi UrPal, I had a good laugh about your pre-punksters remark. You're right of course. I am one my self and I do like well-sung melodious songs (even my favourite hard rock band of my younger years is no longer considered hard rock but rather a melodious rock band :cry: ). I agree with your preferenc...

Re: Reappraised LC songs in light of the current tour

Ziyan, I had the same experience with Anthem, and found it a highlight of the show (which, Movan, I saw twice within 48 hours, a record for me but then I never saw Leonard perform and I didn't want to miss the chance to get to see him twice). I see UrPal's point about the Sublime Twins sing a favour...

Re: Random LC moment I am adoring today

And in a few years that young couple may log onto the Forum and post a response to the thread about "How did you get into LC's music". That is how classics are made. Keep it up. At the moment I am listening to Closing time, but unfortunately no neighbours to ask when that time will finally come :)

Re: If It Be Your Will - Webb Sisters

I was at two recent concerts, and at both occasions the audience went totally silent when the Webb sisters sang "If it be your will". Normally I don't like it when a favourite song is sung by anyone else but the Artist Himself, but I make a huge exception for this one. As I said on the Tour comments...

Re: Amsterdam, Westerpark, July 12

I had the chance to be at the Brugge and Amsterdam performances, my first ever Leonard Cohen concerts. Both fantastic, unforgettable experiences, even though at each concert my standing place was not very close to the Master. Later, at home, I listened to some of the songs on CD and it was obvious t...

Re: "Songs of Leonard Cohen" - on vinyl

I think that CDs sound much better than LPs. I also think that people of my generation have wamer feelings for LPs because they remind them of their youth, which is supposed to be a better place (although I myself am much happier now than when I was 16...). The only nostalgic associations I have wit...

Re: Someone gave me wishes, and I wished for... ?

I would like to ask him to describe in one sentence his ultimate view of life. Like something I read somewhere the other day and that reflects mine: "All I wish for is a life in which, when my time has finally come, I can honestly say that I have no regrets".

Happy birthday Leonard,

Re: Leonard fans - what else do we share in common?

I don't see anyone replying "literature", followed by favourite writers.

Mine are:

- Graham Greene
- V.S. Naipaul
- Gabriel Garcia Marques
- Paul Theroux
- Brett Easton Ellis

and some in other language zones.

Somehow this song is on my mind all the time these days. It has everything that LC stands for for me.

Beautiful story Kerryanna. I always wonder if artists are aware of the many different ways people get to know them, and the impact they have on individuals.

Re: How does LC's music influence your life?

The melancholy melodies, the melancholy but often at the same time hilarious lyrics, the whole completed by sparkling bits of sounds in the background; all together Leonard Cohen has a calming, reassuring and,in a way, spiritually uplifting impact. And it does beautify, or at least make bearable, be...
