Re: sir ken robinson - leonard track - desert island discs

It's interesting to click on "Others who chose this artist".

Here is the link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/features/de ... nard+cohen

Good to see that both the Pink Floyd members chose Leonard!

Re: ADAM COHEN: Updated schedule with ticket links

Is anyone here planning to go to Brighton on 14 November? If so, you can now book direct with the Komedia at http://komediabrighton.ticketsolve.com/shows/126518737/events. This will just cost you £32 for two tickets as opposed to £35.85 through AEG. I do object to an additional £2.25 fee for the pri...

Re: A short history of "Hallelujah" - lyrics, versions, oddities

Hi, I got a simple question concerning the line: "All I ever learned from love, is how to shoot at someone who outdrew you" What does "outdrew" mean here? I'm not a native speaker, I looked up the word, but I can't make sense of it. Does it mean something like "to pull out"? But out of what then? W...

Leonard Cohen in The Thick of it

Leonard got a mention in the first episode of this UK political satire! Malcolm Tucker: "I've got a To Do List as long as a f...ing Leonard Cohen song!"

Why "G-d"?

I have never understood why Leonard Cohen replaces God with G-d in his written text.

Can someone kindly explain or interpret this or point me to a thread that discusses this point?

Many thanks and G-d bless you.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Barcelona, September 21 (Leonard's birthday)

I noticed on this clip on YouTube that Leonard waves behind his back at about 46-47. I would like to think Marianne is backstage and that he is waving to her, we know she was at the concert!! I expect it was just something to do with sound levels. Does anyone have any idea what he is saying, is it ...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Venice, August 3

Liverpoolken, can you please give more details of Leonard singing at Florian's the day before the concert. So annoyed I missed this - my Florian's coffee was on the Monday. Did he get up next to the piano to sing? And how long for? The whole song? What a shame no one filmed it -it would have been gr...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Venice, August 3

Well, it was a week ago but I haven't come down to earth yet. My fifth (and last, sadly) but what a great finale for me. The setting was simply awesome and we had great fifth row seats. Leonard was in fantastic voice and I loved how he kept gesturing to the basilica when singing about angels. Absolu...
