Re: Father John Misty to cover Leonard Cohen on new EP Anthem +3

Thanks for sharing. I think that most of us here appreciate that other artists are influenced by Leonard and are trying to pay homage to him with their interpretations of his songs, however we've all come across some horrendous covers. While he doesn't fall into this category, I've heard a bit of FJ...

He references Leonard in the following lines: "When you're acting like you're fine but you ain't copin' And you're listenin' to to...

Re: Official video released on Youtube of "The Hills"

...One error appears to be that the line ...."I can't make the hills" appears as "I can make the hills" on this video. Quite a difference in meaning I would suggest. In Book of Longing I have only seen "I can't make the hills"..? The same "typo" appears in the printed lyrics in the booklet that cam...

Re: EVENT POSTPONED

Dear friends, First of all, I want to stress what has been said already: thank you, Maarten, for all your efforts. It must have been a tough decision, but it was the right one, to postpone the 2020-event. My (absolutely personal!) preference would be to schedule the event in 2021. An argument that ...

Re: EVENT POSTPONED

Hi Maarten, I hope this finds you and yours well. I think you had no option but to take this difficult decision particularly given recent updates on the potential longevity of this pandemic. Its very disappointing for all concerned and no doubt even more so for you and the team. Personally, I would ...

"Dance Me To The End of Love" - Whitehouse Farm

Last night (29th January) in episode 4 of the ITV six-part drama "Whitehouse Farm" featured a scene with 'Dance Me To The End of Love' playing in the background. It sounded like Leonard's original "Various Positions" version which was released in 1984, around a year before the events of August 1985,...

Re: THE FLAME - Reviews

The reviewer certainly doesn't hold back with his critique of this publication.... He is as entitled to his opinion as anyone, and, as a widely published poet himself, is probably more qualified to assess the work of others than I. However, reviewing the history of Mr Logan, he strikes me as someone...
