Re: Store room

"Store Room" has always intrigued/puzzled me since I first heard it on the remastered version of one of LC's first three albums (I forget which one right now). Of course like so many of his songs, the meaning of the lyrics is wide open to interpretation. But my questions are more basic, for example:...

Re: Looking for the greatest star

This subject brings to mind a different and very real connection between rock music and astronomy: Brian May, lead guitarist for Queen, earned a BS degree in mathematics and physics in college in the UK, and had been pursuing his PhD, with his doctoral thesis to be the study of "reflected light from...

Re: Terrible news from Hydra

Goldin, please carefully reread what I posted. I said nothing about HydraArk, I said "nonprofit organization(s) that benefit the overall community."

Why try to promote arguments where none exist, especially at this sad time?

Re: Terrible news from Hydra

I feel that any surplus in the bench fund should be applied to Hydra nonprofit organization(s) that benefit the overall community, not just one family. If any good people here, and I know there are many, wish to organize a separate fund for this new and very shocking cause, that would be the way to ...

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

Hi Christine, welcome. You will find a lot of information here if you explore around a bit. Like you I was attracted more to LC's early work than his later music, in my case because I became familiar with his music when LC first emerged circa 1970. To this day my favorite albums are the first three,...

Re: Articles From Singout magazine - 1967

Hi Ken, Thanks for posting this. Especially interesting was the Buffy Saint-Marie article on Leonard's music, I wish it was longer! I had previously seen the part at the end in one of the many biographies (Nadel's?) and had always wanted to read the entire article. It provides some insights not expo...

AJOHMS, thanks for your interesting anecdote. Do you still live in Montreal? We visited it for the first time last fall and loved it, also managed to see some "Leonard landmarks" with the help of a gracious woman from this forum. Glad you signed in, there is a lot of of information and material here...

Re: Leonard Cohen Project: Songs Of Love And Hate Tour

We would make a point to see them if we were in Germany, Songs of Love and Hate is my favorite album. There's a very good you tube video of them playing Hallelujah, easily found by googling "leonard cohen schmoltz guttmann you tube" if you want to see what they're like. Would love to see a few video...

Re: Hydra update: no bench in June??

Can we please consider moving the bench location to Montreal? One possible location might be Parc du Portgual, the small park that Leonard's house overlooks. Another might be facing Notre Dame de Bonsecours, of "Suzanne" fame. Undoubtedly there are other potential locations, perhaps Leonard would wa...

Re: 8 new cover versions

Hello Peter,

I listened to Raincoat and Hallelujah just now, I must say I like the vocals and guitar. Will listen to more when I have a chance, but a question: I googled "Brothers of Mercy" and found nothing, do you have a presence on the internet that people can check out?

Re: Did Leonard hear this?

Hello Brian, I just saw this post and went to You Tube to hear "You got Me Whistling." Aside from the similarity of the song's' title to Leonard's "You Got Me Singing," the constructions of both songs have similarities. Johnny Fuller's song was released in the US in 1958. I do not think it was a "hi...

Re: New live album: Can't Forget

Happy that La Manic will be on this album. I had never heard of the song...or of George Dors, for that matter, until I heard it played at Kingston. Leonard took great delight in explaining the background of the song and what it was about beforehand (to help us non-Canadians/non-frenchspeaking folks ...
