Re: Live From The Mixed Bag Show, April 28th 1985

The first clip is talking, the second clip is Night Comes On and the third clip has talking and In The Eyes Of Men with firstly a bonus of Marita and the sequel to Marita ;-) https://...

Re: Bruce Springsteen's new album - Western Stars

I’ve listened to this album for the first time today. “Hello Sunshine” I liked previously but “Moonlight Motel” for some undefinable reason is my favourite so far. I think it’s the time reflective quality about it. I love the line, “She was boarded up and gone like an unsung ( or old summer) song” ....

Re: Leonard's letters to Marianne for sale

Firstly, thank you Maarten for your generosity and the ease of access to these letters. Secondly, I struggled for a long while with wanting to download them and knowing they were not meant for me to see. I haven't read any yet and will just keep them tucked away to be read maybe at another time. My ...

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...

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: 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...
