It’s coming to America first
The cradle of the best and the worst…

  • What a rotten year…
    Boulez, Bowie, Harnoncourt, Prince, Toots Thielemans and now Leonard Cohen…
    What else? Oh yeah… *that* election…

    “There is a crack in everything
    That’s how the light gets in.”

    • “That election”: the only place to seek comfort is the power of the democracy’s institutions. Maybe this time they will be truly tested. One thing is certain in my mind: the new president elect will not be awarded a Nobel Prize in 2018 for NOT being his predecessor.

  • These are great and vibrant lyrics????????

    Ah baby, let’s get married
    We’ve been alone too long
    Let’s be alone together
    Let’s see if we’re that strong
    Yeah let’s do something crazy,
    Something absolutely wrong
    While we’re waiting
    For the miracle, for the miracle to come

    Nothing left to do
    When you know that you’ve been taken
    Nothing left to do
    When you’re begging for a crumb
    Nothing left to do
    When you’ve got to go on waiting
    Waiting for the miracle to come

    • Why are you borstlapping every thread about Leonard Cohen?
      You don’t like the guy? Fine, we get it.
      Do you have to comment every time you see his name?
      Sheesh…

  • Thank you for posting this video ….. so timely.
    Leonard Cohen’s final recording, ‘You want It Darker, is’ an unimaginably moving farewell to life, and a great work of art to boot …. one for the ages.
    R.I.P.
