Re: Happy Birthday, Songs Of Love And Hate (50)

Happy birthday, favorite album!

Wish I could have seen more of the SOLAH songs performed live, but concert-wise I came to the game very late. Would have loved to see "Joan of Arc," and dare I say, "Dress Rehearsal Rag," in person. Thanks for the memories, Leonard!

Re: "2020 (Cohen's Future)"

No matter what one's beliefs or politics, any honest listener should find some lyrics that cause personal unease and guilt. And nothing less than love can bind us.

Re: New 1970-1971 recordings available on Apple Music

Was able to listen to some free previews. Studio tracks interested me a lot since it had much SOLAH representation (my favorite album). I am sure many would enjoy hearing these. (Was always puzzled by why they used Isle of Wight live rendition of "Let's Sing Another Song, Boys" on the SOLAH album; b...

Re: never-ending gallery

G, Your world as you describe it seems like a Shangri-La, and I am happy that you've found it. Most of us dream about such a place, but if we found one we would start destroying it straightaway. This idea, that mankind would ruin paradise if he found it, was the subject of "Tralla-La," a 1954 story ...

Re: never-ending gallery

Thanks..."Beautiful Losers." Would have thought that line would have stayed with me when I read it, but it is not even marked in my notes. Another reason to stop by here now and then!

Re: never-ending psychology

No one is more dangerously insane than one who is sane all the time: he is like a steel bridge without flexibility, and the order of his life is rigid and brittle. Ha!

Re "Tough Times."

I rate this attempt five stars, well done, I read it multiple times. At first I couldn't discern the meter, but then I saw it in the last verse.

Re: I rarely write no more, me

Solongleonard,

Not that it particularly matters, but I am curious as to why in your 10/10 post you artificially doctored something I posted on 6/15 to imply that I wrote your words? I often appreciate your humor, but not to the point I necessarily want it attributed to me.

Affectionately,

Re: On this day in 1934: Leonard Cohen was born

Martin, Marie-Elaine & Maarten,

What an exquisite tribute to Leonard. These arrangements and recordings must have involved a lot of work, rest assured that the results made all that time well-spent. Thank you so much for thinking of Leonard and his fans.
