A friend recently traveled to Canada to catch Cohen in concert. That spoke volumes to me and I pledged to catch the next tour.
Alas, that won't happen...but we have YouTube and iTunes to fill the void.
On this sad Music Friday, I offer for your consideration his version of the masterful classic "Hallelujah" (a song one of my daughters and I discovered we both thought to be the most beautiful song ever written) and a personal fave, "Dance Me to the End of Love."
Merci, Monsieur Cohen, et voyagez coffre-fort.
