Re: What is going on ?

What on earth is going on? I got a virus to my computer so I haven`t been here for a few days. (My computer is still broken but I am in the library now.) I arrived this forum couple of minutes ago and I found all these weird (bad?) news. I`m just shocked... :cry: :cry: :cry: Oh, our dear Leonard, I ...

Re: Leonard Cohen and "Hallelujuh" Cover at 'Hope for Haiti Now'

"A mild sense of revenge"? Good grief! I can't imagine Leonard feeling even a mild sense of revenge. I was also slightly shocked when I read it. My first react was something like "whaaat, c`mon, he is Leonard, a zen monk, a saint, he just cannot feel negative feelings". Now when I have had time to ...

Re: Leonard #10

Yes, I also find "Because Of" with its whispers and sighs is quite Gainsbourg style. They are both (well, Gainsbourg was) masters of speak singing, two of the very few who make it sounds great. :) But IMHO Leonard`s mumbling is far sexier than Gainsbourg`s even though it isn`t bad either ;-) : http:...

Re: Leonard #10

Talking of Gainsbourg, I often wonder how much of an influence he's been on Cohen. I have seen videos and pictures where the similarity in style was striking (to me)... Anyone? I`m a fan of Gainsbourg and I also find the notable similarity between him and Leonard. Like Leonard, Gainsbourg was a Rus...

Re: What's your 2010 Concert dream scenario?

In my dream Leonard would play a concert in Helsinki. In the set list there would be songs like "The Traitor", "Joan of Arc", "The Window", "Stories of The Streets", "The Stranger Song" and "Night Comes On". He would also perform couple of brand new songs. I would be in the first row with a huge sig...

Re: 2 Songs

There is a kind of resemblance of Cohen lovers over here: 1. They are not so understood outside this forum. 2. They are very much understood within this forum. 3. When you say a certain line about Cohen's music you can imagine hundreds of people reading your lines and nodding with agreement almost ...
