    The only thing that beats that is a couple of home made burgers cooked in a greasy old oven.

    Lovely jubbly.

    The cover is very good, solo vocals playing an acoustic guitar.. Wont post it up as this is a Leonard Cohen thread..

    Well, I can google it....

    I like good covers

    But to stay on topic, I quite like the theme from True Detective Season 2...

    And this rendition is really rather lovely.

    I'm sure that's a crushing disappointment for all concerned, Troy.

    At least he died before finding out.

    The great thing about Cohen's writing you don't have to listen to his voice, if I want gravel Tom Waits...outside wife hates Waits, each to there own , I think the Godless like Hallelulah as it reminds us of transitoriness of sanasara, love and BTS

    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    You must love that song (look at your username)





    This is a great rendition of Hallelujah by Pentatonix.




    Leonard was a romantic and poet.

    I grew up an hour from where Leonard grew up. I have been to Montreal on the street where he had a house and wrote some of his music.
    I know the neighborhood pretty well. Montreal is an awesome city!
