Re: "A new album of original Leonard Cohen songs is in the works"

(P.S. Anyone know if there is a full video recording of Acordes Con Leonard Cohen available? I've found a few clips, but would love to add the entire video to my collection if it is available.) A few ways you could do this in either or both links here - https://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/acordes.htm...

Re: Bruce Springsteen's new album - Western Stars

Ah Kush, How remise of me not to mention you also in my last post - I know you like "the boss"! There are a couple of others who we don't see around here too much these days that I think would also like this new album - Scott and Steven :) I listened to those "notable" covers and I have to say that ...

Re: Bruce Springsteen's new album - Western Stars

Gwen, I was thinking of you and Diane when I posted that ;-) I expect this is going to be a good album! Back to the old days and sounds, ha! Bruce has a certain way of telling a story and this album seems to promise some interesting ones. I also love that the violin is featured too. I reckon I'll gi...

Re: Lorca's Poet in New York

Ah Jean, you've done a great job again! Lately my time has been consumed with family history - something fascinating always turns up and side-tracks me! I'm about to get back to learning German. I've been going OK with it so far - hopefully it continues but it's so nice to know I have a back-up plan...

Re: Lyrics or Music first

Does anyone have any reference as to whether Leonard Cohen wrote the lyrics first and then added music, or fit the lyrics into composed music. It seems the former, at least on the early albums that I am most familiar with. I tried searching the forums for this answer, so apologies if this has been ...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hi 4, Thanks for the vote of confidence but I saw that post and thought there’s no easy answer to that question. I’ll post our words in that relative thread. Leonard has said that he regularly used a blend of music and words – melodies with poetry and vice versa in varying order to obtain the desire...

I am aware of the interviews and know about the books they refer to in both links but I can't at the moment remember details of those interviews.

Re: Lorca's Poet in New York

Vickie, always my pleasure to help! And I enjoy comparing those translations as well. Now that’s an interesting timing coincidence about us learning another language! I decided to start with German because I know it the least. Right or wrong, I've begun with pronunciation first and surprisingly I ha...
