To Love Somebody

Postby Malcolmpordes » Mon May 28, 2012 8:27 pm

With the death of Robin Gibb, I've read in several places that Leonard recorded the Bee Gees song To Love Somebody. This is not true, is it?

Hello Malcolmpordes,

Leonard Cohen played that Song live sometimes many Years ago and there are (bootleg) live recordings:

As far as I know, there is no studio Version.

This is my favorite of the Bee Gee's:

Feel I'm going back to Massachusetts.
Something's telling me I must go home.
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
the day I left her standing on her own.

Tried to hitch a ride to San Francisco.
Gotta do the things I wanna do.
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts.
They brought me back to see my way with you.

Talk about the life in Massachusetts.
Speak about the people I have seen.
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts.
And Massachusetts is one place I have seen..
I will remember Massachusetts...
