Listening to this, it felt like I was sitting directly across from him having an intense, somewhat frightening conversation.
I am just completely blown away.
Full lyrics HERE.
I remember my friend, Gerard, brought his first album over. We were all introduced to Suzanne and her tea and oranges from China and Jesus the Sailor that night. We listened, never realizing the cultural hero Leonard Cohen would become. In the nineties, I watched him in concert, older, grayer and hipper than ever. I remember thinking what a beautiful way to grow old and keep the flame burning.
This number epitomizes his voice, a reed in the wind. I will always remember him as the Poet of Song.
