My original Leonard Cohen Tribute song - Once There Were Lovers

Dear fellow Cohen fans,

Welcome to my first post on this forum ...

I'm a singer/songwriter, one of the millions inspired by Cohen down the years - and there have been many; my first Cohen album was "Death of a Ladies' Man" back in 1977, and at 59 I'm now only 21 years away from starting smoking again - and I have made a few CDs by now, none of which have been noticed much outside of my bedroom, but the latest one includes my homage to Leonard Cohen, and I would love to share it with some fellow Cohen fans.

I would also really appreciate any feedback you might feel inclined to offer; the posters on my wall have been strangely quiet for a while now and my wife's already said what she thinks, so it would be great to hear what you think of it.

You can hear the song on Spotify using this link:

Or watch the video on YouTube using this link:

I did try to attach it to this post but when I clicked on "add files" and navigated to the directory where it sits on my laptop, the attaching program said it was an invalid file format. I tried for both the mp3 and WAV versions, but no joy. If anyone can kindly point out what I'm doing wrong I'll add the file here and edit this post.

Anyway, I hope you like it!

Thank you, friends; and thanks for the songs, Mr Cohen.

Tony Arthur

Well, I like it. Thanks!

(And I don't think you can attach audio files to a posting.)
