Peter Cetera's 2010 Songwriters Hall of Fame induction speech for David Foster, and David Foster's speech, in which he mentions Leonard Cohen, has surfaced on YouTube.

Leonard Cohen, our Canadian national treasure, fellow Canadian, and who quite rightly, unlike me, is not or should not be wondering why he was chosen to be here tonight.

The Songwriters Hall Of Fame

Remembering Leonard Cohen

The SHOF was saddened to learn of the death of 2010 Inductee Leonard Cohen today.

Born in 1934, Cohen was a Canadian singer, songwriter, poet and novelist, and his work explored religion, politics, isolation, sexuality, and personal relationships. Cohen was inducted into both the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame as well as the American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Cohen’s first album was Songs of Leonard Cohen (1967) followed by Songs from a Room (1969) (featuring the often-recorded “Bird on the Wire") and Songs of Love and Hate (1971). His 1977 record Death of a Ladies’ Man was co-written and produced by 1997 SHOF Inductee Phil Spector, which was a move away from Cohen’s previous minimalist sound.

In 1979 Cohen returned with the more traditional Recent Songs, which blended his acoustic style with jazz and Oriental and Mediterranean influences. “Hallelujah” was first released on Cohen’s studio album Various Positions in 1984. I’m Your Man in 1988 marked Cohen’s turn to synthesized productions and remains his most popular album.

In 1992 Cohen released its follow-up, The Future, which had dark lyrics and references to political and social unrest. Cohen returned to music in 2001 with the release of Ten New Songs, which was a major hit in Canada and Europe. In 2006 Cohen produced and co-wrote Blue Alert, a collaboration with jazz chanteuse Anjani Thomas.

After the success of his 2008–13 world tours, Cohen released the highest charting album in his entire career, Old Ideas, to positive reviews. On 22 September 2014, one day after his 80th birthday, Cohen released his 13th studio album, Popular Problems, again to positive reviews. Cohen’s fourteenth and final album, You Want It Darker, was released on 21 October 2016, a few weeks before he died.

Cohen is survived by his son Adam and daughter Lorca.
