    Rest in peace, Leonard Cohen

    The amazing Canadian singer/songwriter/poet Leonard Cohen passed away last Monday at age 82, most of which years he spent creating his words and music. His most recent album, "You Want It Darker," was just released October 21.

    For ages, he has been a presence in the music scene for me, always there with such great songs as "Suzanne" and "Everybody Knows" and "Hey, That’s No Way to Say Goodbye” and "Hallelujah." The last few days, I have heard more of his words and music than I ever had before. What a brilliant man!

    Rest in peace, Mr. Cohen, and thank you for all you have given us.

    Hallelujah is one of my favorites. It's a family tradition. Very moving.
    Thank you Mr. Cohen.

    Leonard Cohen was profoundly gifted and surely will be dearly missed.

    Yes, he was not only gifted but shared his gift with the world. He was a blessing to us all, and his music will live on forever!

    Wow, that was so well done.

    Love that song, and it many covers. I love the story of when one of the singers who has done it - I think it was John Cale - was set to record it, he reached out to Mr. Cohen, asking him the original verses, to make he got them right. He said he would fax them over, and when he did Wainwright was stunned when page after page after page came across!

    Thanks for the link, Liz. I didn't see the show last night, then heard about this today, so I was sorry I'd missed it.
