Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Thanks for posting! And yes, there are some anomalies but you can still get the general gist of it. This statement appears really clear to understand! Will there be more albums? "No, that's all. That's all that's left. There's no more. It's not another death album, when usually someone tries to make...

Re: November 7, 2016

Ah Hartmut, now you’ve said that it surely does remind me of many happy and frustrating times we all had years ago when we played a certain game about matching images to LC’s lines .... :) Seems its essence still lives within me ;-)

Re: Happens to the Heart - song and video released

Hi Weilin, Thanks for thinking of me but I did read that info about Slow when it first came out and again yesterday as well when I was looking for more specific info on Happens To The Heart :) And most interesting is that The Files do now in fact show exactly the same words as The Flame – it would a...

Re: Happens to the Heart - song and video released

I guess the lyric version is much older than the poem. In a Sep 14, 2014 article of Rolling Stone: WiTS, That does make sense and you probably know that two of the poem lines vary even though both versions (The Files and The Flame) have the same date on them. It does make you wonder what was writte...

Re: In search of a poem

Well, it would appear we have all done what we can to find this line. It still would be great to listen to that CBC interview - Audience from 1979. Maybe someone will come across it and let us know. I thought I'd mention that the song What Happens To The Heart just released from the new album has re...

So heart warming to hear Leonard’s words coming through the air to reach us once again!

Re: In search of a poem

Hi there! Thanks so much - I’m now pretty sure this line of poetry has never materialised in any of Cohen’s published works, but if you have other information I would love to know it! The interview extract, I have learned, is from a CBC interview conducted in 1979, for a program called Audience. Hi...

Re: In search of a poem

Ah, Candleburn,
I was about to reply to your request but I now see you could no longer be requiring it!
It would be nice to know if you are still interested or maybe you have already answered your own question :razz:

Marie, thanks for posting the video :D I hadn’t seen it before.
