Re: HIPHOP COVERS OF LEONARD COHEN SONGS

Here's one that I'm sure I posted a few years back (my daughter was a fan). It's by Plan B before he hit the big time recently.

Re: Do You Love Me?

Dear Jason I read your other poem and agree with Byron about this girl. She is not fire, she's ice. Anybody who could cut somebody who proclaims a love for them out of their life in this cruel manner is just not worth it. You may not think it now but there will be others in your life and they'll be ...

Re: Do You Love Me?

Hi T, at first I thought this might be something to do with the Nick Cave song.

Actually is this a song? It reads like song lyrics.

Lovely story, insecure beginning but happy ending. It's sweet.

Re: Leonard & Shakira

I'm sure Leonard would like Shakira too. They could do a duet of "Underneath Your Clothes" (lyrics below), I think Leonard'd like this. I saw Shakira being interviewed recently and she made a Spinal Tap joke which surprised me. I guess we shouldn't judge the book by it's cover and Shakira has a love...

Re: look at it, leonard - one last time

Geoffrey, you inspired me and I have heard that the "down below" is, in fact, her feet as evidenced by this unpublished verse Everybody knows that she hates her corn Everybody knows that he laughed at it Everybody knows that this upset her and she thought that he was being a git Everybody knows he w...

Re: Leonard naked

When I saw the title I was astounded. I wondered if a crazed fan had broken into Leonard's hotel room and taken a photo of him in the bath, maybe somebody from the "women only" thread. Or perhaps when he was young and in need of some money, as so many do in the entertainment industry, somebody had t...

Re: Poems by seadove

lazariuk I wasn't being sarcastic. When I saw those words I immediately thought of Father Christmas and then given the nature of the poem and Soho in London I thought of Rap. It did make me laugh though, which is at least a reaction and one that I thought seadove may have intended although now that ...

Re: Coward's Explanation

This is an interesting question. I'm not too sure of the answer but here's how I interpreted it, as with interpreting anything I may be completely wrong but as the original poet is no longer with us this is Mr Cohen's interpretation of Mr Cavafy's poem anyway and what a wonderful interpretion it is....

Re: Words LC pronounces better than anyone in the world

I love the way he says words ending in "ter" e.g. "bitter" and "water" with his emphasis on the "t" sound. I think they stand out especially for me as I live in London where nobody pronounces the letter t. Also kinda obvious but his "naked" (he says that a lot) and "baby" are good too.

Re: I'm Ok, You're Not

Ok, I'm making a mental note now and will never be jolly when Michael is nearby, it could result in catastrophic consequences. :lol:

For some reason I don't like the "placidity" and "liquidity" part.
