Re: New live album: Can't Forget

For whom did Leonard Cohen write The Stranger Song ? My theory about the life of Leonard Cohen the man (which is not of my business to begin with) is that he really was born with a voice of gold (in is absolute original way) but also with an appetite for life of such a stature, that he had to master...

Re: New live album: Can't Forget

Dear Joe, that was a kind gesture. In 1970 the death of Janis Joplin was a tragic event that caught everybody unguarded. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat, the earth also and...

Re: New live album: Can't Forget

It seems that the real muse of the song is Nico, the icy german singer and Andy Warhol's protégée . Interesting how the image of the metallic walkyrie was melted in the figure of the saint, virgin and martyr. Another one. Although her existence may be just a myth. The song is a pure beauty, indeed. ...

Re: Too old

I checked if it was absolute or obsolete atrocity. Of course it is obsolete.

Re: Blue Raincoat and drug addiction ???

My pleasure.

I also share what Scobie seems to think about the song(s) : Cohen deals with the trauma of Janis Joplin's death. Through different steps experienced in mourning.

Who said that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration? So true.

Re: Blue Raincoat and drug addiction ???

(...) a song that uses trains as a metaphor for longing, going places, the transitory nature of life and relationships, (...) I like your definition, Alexandralaughing. I'm sorry Abter1. I also hope there is help in view for all of you. What I mean by a train song is a song having a train for main ...

Re: Blue Raincoat and drug addiction ???

That brings a lot of answers to my mind, Alexandra. I'll try to avoid the overdose in my answering. First, Leonard Cohen never tried to be cute, to avoid the unpleasant. In this, there is no lie in his voice singing love and hate. Second, even though the family was considered the cell of the society...

Re: Blue Raincoat and drug addiction ???

Great video Alexandralaughing. Number 1 of the video is indeed something else. It is a real train song in the very original Leonard Cohen manner. Listening to the lyrics of 1 and 2 it feels like he wrote and re-wrote the song with always a fresh point of view of the day about this event, and at the ...

Re: Blue Raincoat and drug addiction ???

Please accept my condolences for the loss of this young man in your community. For a LC song about drugs I would have reached for the Butcher either. Interesting, this "trouble in the eyes" image as being a drug addiction. I never thought about it like this before. Liz wrote : Big difference between...

Re: Zen and longing

(...) a sense of honour among professional magicians (...) That deserves a thread of its own. Not that the terrible otter of the Karamasov brother does not, in my mind, but for the fact that it is too damp - to me, little cozy nature - and that I prefer the warmth presence of some glowing embers to...

Re: New live album: Can't Forget

It feels like the magic can never stop! Just Great. The whole thing. Magical.

Georges Dor's La Manic on that opus is a dream came true!

I am left with no words.

Speechless.

Amazed.

And very happy!!
