Re: Leonard singing "O Christmas Tree" ("O Tannenbaum")

I really like singing both those songs in German because of how the words flow in that language for them. Plus they were first written and sung in it so it’s good to honour that tradition. These are good reasons. I learnt German and French at high school I'm impressed by the school system down unde...

Re: Leonard singing "O Christmas Tree" ("O Tannenbaum")

Glad to hear that, Bev!

I didn't know that you speak (or at least sing) German. Frohe Weihnachtszeit also!

Leonard singing "O Christmas Tree" ("O Tannenbaum")

In my ongoing effort to make this a tradition: Here's Leonard singing "O Tannenbaum" ("O Christmas Tree").

(Based, of course, on a few lines of the song "Non, je ne regrette rien" he sang during a TV interview.)

Re: Performing Leonard's First Album in Full!

To get a few more views, you could post your videos on the Facebook page "I need a regular dose of Leonard Cohen" (https://www.facebook.com/groups/leonardcohencafe). - There is an open mic project for cover versions going on at the moment. - Or maybe you already know that.

Re: L.C. Song Hunt

I know this is a very very old post but listen to the beginning of this Schubert on Spotify - first 4 bars are the same beginning to Famous Blue Raincoat its uncanny. Volume is VERY low I had to max it out on my Sonos to hear it! https://open.spotify.com/track/4b59u2E74KcDuyHCRBkf5v?si=OAWIwHITRWOL...

Re: The Partisan and more

Hi Bev, "Joe Hill": I see. Very interesting! - I didn't know that. Or had forgotten about it. Odense ... I thought about going there, but I think I'm glad I didn't. (No seating etc.) Yes, I'd love to hear Leonard sing that song as well. Maybe a recording will surface someday. - In the meantime, we c...

maybe you could recall being at a soundcheck (I think you know someone who was ;-) ) in Europe the following year when LC sang one of those songs on my list for the first and only time that I know of.

[to use an Australia expression which I remember doing so in the PG years ago – “Come in spinner!” I learned that phrase from you! (Didn't get much chance to use it though.) And off course, you are correct! Maybe you were there on the night and can remember hearing the whole verse? Indeed, we were ...
