I love Leonard Cohen...and yeah, U2 is kinda cool too! His voice is so great, but that was a bit slow...but lovely none the less!

Cohen reminds me of a description once given by a professional musician of Ray Charles. This won't be exact, but it captures the spirit. He said, "You think it's only hard to play fast but I gotta tell you, Ray has this rhythm, I call it the Death Rhythm, and it's really hard because it's so slow. He'll get up there to rehearse and say 'One!' Take a sip of water. Go offstage to greet a friend who's dropped in, say hello. Walk back out, have another sip of water, and say, 'Two!'"

Cohen is such an amazing writer, and such a gracious fellow.

Oh, I know, I love him so! His "Everybody Knows" gets me to the bottom of my soul. Just breathtaking...as is so many of his others. It bothers me that you can get covers of his songs easier then you can get his stuff...a bit like Dylan that way sometimes!
