So psychedelic, man!

It didn't take that long to discern the uncanny dissimilarity! Nonetheless, thank you for clarifying the reference. Cheers!

Solong, Thank you for your response: basking in your erudition is one of my favourite pastimes. But, as usual, you are a fount of (mis)information (and really, my friend(s), you can spare us some details! As the kids like to say these days, "TMI"!). Cheers! ;-) Geoffrey, it is Kevin Ayers and the W...

Re: LC wins 2018 Grammy Award for You Want It Darker!

...Somebody didn't read the article properly. It wasn't Leonard heading to Mt Baldy in the super car... Indeed. In fact, the article had absolutely nothing to do with Leonard at all (nor with much of anything!). It was just some hack journalist in a fancy rental car driving up to Mount Baldy for a ...

An important question for those more experienced than I

I was just wondering: How many consecutive posts does a person have to write on this forum, without receiving any responses, before they are driven to create their own alter-ego (that is, to register with a new screen-name), so that they can appear to be interacting with another person? If one of yo...

Re: complete the poem.....(Haiku)

Since we are now on the topic of cricket, and because this thread is supposed to be about poems (specifically Haiku, for those who may have forgot), and bearing in mind that this is the Leonard Cohen Forum, in addition to the fact that somebody occasionally has to raise the level of discussion aroun...

My turn to be disgruntled

Dear all, I am most disappointed that none of you has helped me find the musical origin of “Horse of Babylon”. Well, all that fuss about not getting a response, and then when you finally do receive an answer to your query, you seem to have left the building. Of course, I suppose your absence is und...

Re: Solong and Sue, Sitting in a Tree

Now I know exactly whom the singer/poet Leonard Cohen (decd) had in mind when he wrote "you are the Horse of Babylon". This was the clearest reference to your ugliness and dumbness. I have no idea when Leonard ever wrote about "the Horse of Babylon" and if you can all drag yourself away from the co...

When I first saw the title of the above article, I thought it may have been a reference to Leonard's charming story, but I suspect that this genuinely "cute" narrative is simply another facet of the World Tour th...

Re: Leonard-Cohen-is-in-danger-of-becoming-cute

While the author of this article makes some valid points, he's about 9 years too late. Was he not around during the ongoing world tours from 2008 to 2013, during which time there were several album releases and a mountain of accolades piling up for Leonard Cohen from every corner of the globe?
