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

Wow, Happens to the Heart, so haunting, so beautiful, I totally love it!! And I love the alternate lyrics that Leonard sings, which are different, & IMO even better, than the previously posted poem; esp.: "I had no trouble betting/ on the flood against the ark/ you see, I knew about the ending/ what...

Re: "Hummingbird", a song based on Leonard's poem

Hartmut, that is beautiful!! What a lovely melody - so stately & meditative - it had me swaying with the beauty of the majestic sounds, soothing rhythm, & your perfect incorporation of Leonard's voice! Thank you for sharing that.

Re: September 21, 1934

Hartmut & Bev, both of your posts are so lovely & beautiful, that I feel compelled to add an offering. So, shabby though it may be, here is something I wrote in honor of our Leonard's 85th birthday: Darling, Where Are You? And when they ask, saying "Darling, where are you?" What shall I tell them My...

Re: I have a few questions I want to ask

Hello,Celena. Your baby has come up with a very clever little plan - not sordid at all - as he has obviously perceived that Mr. Cohen loves Shabbat dinners & he loves challah, & he greatly enjoys the company of crying babies too. In fact, I clearly remember a recording of a concert which Leonard gav...

Re: Treaty

LEONARD: .. We used to talk about ‘Treaty: The Movie’, as I did no less than 25 versions of “Treaty”... [/i] Thank you, Bev, & very good to see you too! Given Patrick Leonard's comments about 'Treaty: The Movie' & the 25 versions, it seems my obsession (& everyone else's obsession) with this song h...

Re: Treaty

Mark, thank you for your post. "Treaty" has been haunting me daily (in a good way), ever since I first heard it in Amsterdam 2016. This song lays down with me every night, like a bedtime prayer; & whenever i hear it, be it in my mind or on CD, it takes me to that extraordinary, indescribable, other-...

LC Soundtrack in Homecoming

In Season 1, Episode 9 of the series, "Homecoming", the first 4 lines of the last verse of Coming Back To You ("Even in your arms..."), are played in the background of a particular scene, somewhere around the middle of the episode; it's only those 4 lines, but to the credit of whoever made this deci...

Re: Book of Longing: Audio Book, narrated by Leonard

Isn't there a button "buy with one click" that allows you to buy the audio without subscription? ( see below) Hugo, thank you so much for your efforts & your reply. However, the option to buy in any manner did not come up at amazon.com or audible.com; after trying again several times, I called "cus...

Re: Book of Longing: Audio Book, narrated by Leonard

This is amazing, wonderful news, but when I go to amazon.com (the U.S. website), using the link provided, it says " this is not available to you" & then "this title is no longer available"! :shock: Maybe that just refers to the printed book... And when I did a search for "Book of Longing audio editi...
