Your Sting quote made me laugh out loud and Dave too when I read it to him. I was happy to hear that you are with us daily. I am here daily too, but really need to stop spending so much time in posting... not only do I have work to do, but sometimes a little tape on my mouth would be a good thing!
Sorry for being impatient but thank you for responding!AlanM wrote:One of the many joys of being retired is that I don't have to respond instantly to the demands (too strong a word?) of my clients. So ... I've been thinking.....
In retrospect, I share you feelings on Heather and Ladies Man... but regarding Ten New Songs, not so much. In general, I agree that it didn't grab me as much as most... and after Heather, I was hoping that it would, but there is that poem/song (A Thousand Kisses Deep), right? And there is your and Allan Showalter's YouTube video of it... and other songs there too.
I loved what you shared about the 3 'most recent' album, and your personally perceived similarities which I also agree with. In fact, I loved your comments on Leonard's music in general. I solidly agree with your comment that if he had only recorded Songs of Leonard Cohen....that would have been enough.
I loved this most of all. I wish I could have been at your gathering in Melbourne. I would have raised a glass to Lynch as well... and to the rightness of the universe regarding how it turned out (this time at least).The lyrics don't just seep into the soul, they dive in.
Thanks for your post!
