Leonard Cohen on Coronation Street!

Postby ScottM » Tue Dec 03, 2013 11:54 pm

The Tipsy Wife was watching Coronation Street tonight. The ITV soap opera character Peter Barlow was having second thoughts about his wedding tomorrow and having a heart to heart with his new love interest...(why am I even admitting to knowing this?). Anyway,playing in the background was "Night comes on". Might have to pay more attention to the soaps....

I saw that too and Peter said he was listening to his favourite music! I thought I was hearing things at first, but it goes to show what a cultured programme it really is and I'm proud to watch it :-)
I heard of a man who says words so beautifully that if he only speaks their name women give themselves to him.

My mum said so! Amazing really. I wonder whose choice it was.

Yes, I couldn't believe it, either. I've read that Chris has spent some time in a Buddhist retreat in Scotland and is going to quit the street because of the stress. Perhaps that's where he got aquainted with our lovely Leonard.

The number of the episode is #1.8270 (yes, officially it's the 8270th episode of the 1st season, shown just a few days before the 53rd anniversary of Coronation Street).

Thanks Roman! This episode has now been added to the soundtrack list (and Scott's name added to the list of contributors - Roman was there already!)
