Re: Leonard Cohen: TOUR 2008

Re: Leonard Cohen: TOUR 2008

what a delight to peek into that beloved cohendom and to behold the most joyous of news, news worthy of a long long smile, as long as Cyrano's nasal protuberance... Canada, is it not just a benign border-crossing away, a mere thousand miles from home.... just to touch and be touched by the immortali...

fljot.... your perceptiveness and generosity of spirit are overwhelming... in tune with this community?

is this not a "discussion" forum? a thread about the use and meaning of words? or is it about personality or condescension toward 'colonials'?

hmmm....... reading my statement carelessly?.... I used the word "appreciated" which is NOT the same as "understood"... so we have no disagreement...

my point is that one can appreciate something more only IF one knows that something more than superficially...

What an interesting thread, lucidly and charmingly debated mostly by the citizens of original English. May I opine? Mispronunciation, like misappropriation of words is appreciated more only if the user actually knows the correct version (in my humble opinion); most of the time we can tell if the use...

Thanks Nila...

in that case, how would you evaluate the relative "importance" of lyrics (the message) Versus the musicality of Barbara's work?

60:40, 50:50 or what?

Musicality was what first attracted me to LC... (2003 re-broadcast of the 1988 TV appearance on AUSTIN CITY LIMITS)

Ever since the beginning of this thread I have been trying to give Barbara another chance to stir my emotions, but.... no luck so far. Who can steer me to the (French) lyrics of Barbara?... the site that was linked in here only provides a listing of the songs. The 2-CD Le Chatelet 1993 set has a few...

LC songs on radio ?

DIRECTV is now carrying XMRADIO channels including LOFT which yesterday surprised me with one of TEN NEW SONGS pieces..... this is the first time I have heard LC on any radio station, which prompts me to ask if there are other places where one might be likely to hear his songs?

:lol: sorry to interrupt this "Waiting for Tchoco" theater.....

Tchoco is still as confused and confusing as in the past, and the valiant posters in these halls are still trying to figure him/her out... :shock:
