Happy 70th, Leonard Cohen!

Happy 70th, Leonard Cohen!

Just noticed on the BBC website that Leonard Cohen's turned 70.

It's "common knowledge" that LC writes music to slash your wrists to. Actually, a lot of his stuff is quite funny, even if the humour's very dark. Much like The Smiths, really - though their styles are very different.

Personally, I think he's great. But very quirky!

Yeah, I've always liked him. He makes me laugh and I could never really understand why people think it's music to slash your wrists to.

:D

Oh yes, I'm your man is brilliant. I've just put the CD on.

Love it!!!

Everybody knows you've been faithful, give or take a man or two. :lol:

And if you want a doctor, I'll examine every inch of you. :lol:

Oh yes, life in the fast lane.

Especially when recreational herbs aren't illegal.

I agree, JaJ. :D

(BTW, my quotes cames from two different songs from the album I'm Your Man: Everybody Knows and the title track itself.)

Ah.......big big fan of LC, as a matter of fact, I have been listening to his new album "dear heather" a lot of late. Anyone remember the album "various positions" from 1984? Dance me to the end of love !
