Hello All: I am in complete agreement with you Rachel, I am a guy and I relate to Leonard's music and lyrics with a similar intensity as the one that is expressed in the songs and lyrics themselves. For this reason I cannot stereotype the male or female perspective and say that each gender has a par...

To name a few: Take This Waltz, Hallelujah, I'm Your Man, The Future, Waiting For A Miracle, Dance Me To The End of Love, If It Be Your...

Hi Margaret: It is good to know that Van Morrison is not being completely missed out on. I think he is truly a great musician and singer. What I find amazing about him is that his words are usually not that great but it is just the way he articulates them. He is so musical that he need only talk (as...

Cave, Waits et al

Hi Elizabeth: Good to know you have joined in the dark celebration of Nick Cave and Tom Waits. What did you think of "Let Love In"?? Just wondering. There is a wealth of music by both of them that is waiting to be mined by you - if you wish. It is interesting that no one on this forum has ever said ...

Its me again. I forgot to add that Johnny Cash was NOT an entertainer, he was a singer/musician. I say this because entertainer and singer/musicians are two very different kinds of people.

I just had to get that in there :wink:

Hi All: To my mind the singular quality about Johnny Cash is that he transcended musical boundaries, country in his case. He was always different, and marched to his own drum. I first heard Johnny Cash on Dylan's Nashville Skyline a long time ago...smile. Ever since then he has held a special place ...

Hi All: Good discussion this!! As far as Leonard being inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame is concerned. I don’t think he is the kind of artiste who would ever be bothered by it, not even an iota. It may be something that would mean more to some of his *fans*. Personally I doubt it if Leonar...

Dear Elizabeth: I would LOVE to be there, but for the locations of our lives, and our frequent inability to live the lives of our words...ah well!!! The quote is from the album titled "Let Love In" and from the song, "I Let Love In". In the song Nick is lamenting about the dangerousness of love, how...

Hi Elizabeth: Yes, it is delightful to be among those who are genuinely into Leonard's work and delve into it. I would certainly like to come to the NY event. Hopefully I can work out the logistics. But I am unsure at this point. Though I must confess I *love* Manhattan, I used to live in NYC in wha...

Hi All: Pretty amazing thread this. Thought I would share my interpretation of the song. First off I think Leonard is using “Boogie Street” as a metaphor of earthly, transient life AS WELL AS a spiritual, enduring life. Two different universes, i.e. the earthly (“dark one”) and the spiritual (“crown...

Hi Elizabeth: It is amazing how much joy a song can confer, and that is what "Hallelujah" does for me. For years I glossed over this song and suddenly one day there it was, in all its resplendent beauty - suddenly meaningful, reaching into the depths of the heart, while making offerings of beauty th...
