I've been a fan of Leonard Cohen's work for approximately 15 years or so. The subject of "favorite album or song" is always a tricky topic. Having said that, from June 08 until December 25th of 08, I suffered with a dying liver which kept me in the hospital for about 90% of those days. Thank god for my BlackBerry phone and 16GB data card to keep me entertained with approximately 3500 songs. Considering Leonard Cohen is one of my favorite artists, I listened to all of his work SEVERAL times over during those miserable days. I'm healing now, from a successful liver transplant at the ripe old age of 34 and over the last three months I still have one song in particular echoing in my head, repeatedly. Ballad of the Absent Mare. I don't know what it is. The lyrics and melody are beautiful, as so many of Mr. Cohen's songs are. There is something about that song that moves me in a way that no other song ever has. So, for the sake of answering the question of this thread, I have given you my answer...
