    The songs of Leonard Cohen

    For those who missed the news buried away in the famous person RIP thread, Leonard Cohen has passed away.

    Too great a poet and songwriter to be lost in that thread, so a separate thread for vids of him, and any covers you think exceptional.

    I will start with two of of my favs:






    (and if you post vids, please delete the "s" to not screw up the thread).

    With kids nowadays he's more known as a Kurt Cobain lyric.



    "Give me a Leonard Cohen afterworld
    So I can sigh eternally"

    He left us an invaluable treasure of songs and I have difficulty to pick a favourite.
    Leonard Cohen said his goodbye to us all with the album "You want it darker"
    knowing that his time had come to an end

    Feeding me tea and oranges in July 1970, dropping mescalin and giggling my way along the wetlands of Athelney and the setting sun.

    Life was so full of promise and then it turned to shit.
