    Re: The Timeless Music of 'Leonard Cohen' ...

    Thanks for starting the Leonard Cohen thread.  I saw your note in the video thread.  


    Frankly, your persistence is to your credit.  I've almost given up on posting b/c of the difficulties I've had, let alone my inability to feel I am even seeing updated posts.   Every view looks different, and every forum seems to be either experiencing varying degrees of success, or it's all a matter of what browser (and what version of the browser) a person is using.   Not user-friendly.  :(


    In the meantime, I'll listen to some of the videos you've posted; I'll get a bit more of an overview that way for starters.   I agree, Leonard Cohen's music is "timeless" and crosses generations, but for some reason, his music was never on my radar, other than on a very limited basis.

    Leonard Norman Cohen, CCGOQ (born 21 September 1934) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician, poet, and novelist.

     

     

     

    His work has explored religion, politics, isolation, sexuality, and personal relationships.

     

     

     

    Cohen has been inducted into the American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and both the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.

     

     

     

    He is also a Companion of the Order of Canada, the nation's highest civilian honour.In 2011, Cohen received a Prince of Asturias Award for literature.

     

     

     

    The critic Bruce Eder assessed Cohen's overall career in popular music by asserting that "he is one of the most fascinating and enigmatic … singer/songwriters of the late '60s … and has retained an audience across four decades of music-making … Second only to Bob Dylan (and perhaps Paul Simon) [in terms of influence], he commands the attention of critics and younger musicians more firmly than any other musical figure from the 1960s who is still working at the outset of the 21st century."

     

     

     

    The Academy of American Poets has commented more broadly on Cohen's overall career in the arts, including his work as a poet, novelist, and songwriter, stating that "Cohen's successful blending of poetry, fiction, and music is made most clear in Stranger Music: Selected Poems and Songs, published in 1993, which gathered more than 200 of Cohen's poems … several novel excerpts, and almost 60 song lyrics … While it may seem to some that Leonard Cohen departed from the literary in pursuit of the musical, his fans continue to embrace him as a Renaissance Man who straddles the elusive artistic borderlines.

    spidey,

    I just used the URL for "Hallelujah". It worked on the first tome.

    As you now, I consider this one of the most beautiful songs eve written. This edition is by the composer himself.

    Thank you very much for starting a Leonard Cohan thread. I hope moe posters will listen to his songs and enjoy this genius of a composer.

    yogafriend, 

    I like your current signature. It is an Irish prayer blessing I believe...or the beginning of it.

    Have missed your drop-ins in the political forum though I am very glad you have not given up BDC, as you told my friend spidey.

    This is all requiring an enormous amount of patience from everyone.
