Suzanne. Perhaps not coincidentally, the first song I ever heard Leonard (or anyone else) sing.

Depends on mood. “Night comes on” and “the Hills” pop up first when thinking about it.

Hello, the first Leonard Cohen song I heard was ‘Sisters of Mercy’ from a LP in the 60s called ‘The Rock Machine Turns You On’ but my song is ‘The Smoky Life’ especially the live version on ‘Tour Of 79’

Famous Blue Raincoat

In a happy way, somehow... It's liberating, it's a great move on song, but it's the type of ability that we envy but know we'd never be able to do... myself anyway

Been listening on a loop this rendition https://youtu.be/y0m7cVMPBfU?list=RDy0m7cVMPBfU

Famous Blue Raincoat for me too. This is a beautiful cover too , by Tom Terrell and Rachel Sermanni.

None to compare with Leonard of course , but anything involving Glen Hansard is worth a listen , he has a couple of good FBR covers on YouTube

Hope you enjoy it ! Steve
